The Illegitimate Sons is a band that plays Americana, Old Country and Murder Ballads and we're making a record!

You are pledging to support the completion and pressing of our new album, "AMERICAN MUSIC". Everyone who donates - no matter the amount - will be included in the liner notes for this album. 

"AMERICAN MUSIC" was recorded on a shoestring budget in songwriter Lee Miles' home studio, with the help of some very talented and generous friends. This album was produced by The Illegitimate Sons and engineered by Josh Estock. Needless to say, we're very excited about this project!

We want to press this album on vinyl - which is very expensive. This is where you come in, dear supporter of fine music! We need to raise enough money to pay for engineering and mastering, offering this album on vinyl and CD as well as hosting digital downloads online. We can meet all of these financial demands for $3500. 

We've come up with some great prizes for pledgers, and we hope you find something among these offerings that inspires your support. We believe "American Music" has the potential to end all evil in the world (or at least make it more tolerable). We think you'll agree...
