About

After spending 5 months on our Life Size Models DIY Project - where we self recorded an EP, designed art , packaged albums, and self recorded acoustic videos -  we really want to get out into the bigger world by recording a professional debut album designed for worldwide distribution!

 Our first album, entitled "Homemade", is an amazing sounding concept album (all developed by us), but we never intended on it being for worldwide distribution since it only has 5 songs (with an additional 3 recorded live at Red Rock Coffee in Mountain View, CA). Although a great EP, we want a full production concept album with 8 well crafted songs, professionally packaged, and distributed in record stores and online streaming services (apple music, spotify, etc...). We have done the research and the math and this is the quick breakdown: 

Recording - Mixing - Mastering: $2500

Kickstarter gifts: $700 - luckily, we as a band manufacture these gifts ourselves so it takes a lot of personal time, but at less cost. 

Kickstarter fees and taxes: $300 - Hey, they earned it. 

Here are some fun things we've been busy with over the last couple months:

Release of one of our singles from our previous album, Homemade. (Note that all hard copy versions in our kickstarter will feature the 8 song version EP)

Recording vocals for an earlier acoustic track ( A Way Out) : JLS studios (aka guitarists house + hallway + living room sometimes)

Tracking drums for State Of Mind at Dynamic Detailing (DD) in Santa Clara, Ca. Daniel, the owner of DD, was incredibly kind to offer us a place to practice and record drums for Homemade. Thank you DD!

Risks and challenges

Of course the biggest risk is the final cost of recording. It is not a cheap process, but one that is required by all bands. We will be also raising money for this project at shows to cover further costs. We are currently lined up for 10 shows during this project all of which will be paid and have merchandise sales.
