Funded! This project was successfully funded on May 7, 2012.


We are a four piece Indie Rock / New Age Folk band from Chicago, IL. We are recording our debut album. Help us put it out!


Thank you for all of your support! This is truly something. In just five days, we have managed to reach our goal. For that, we are truly thankful. This amount of support is incredibly humbling, and we cannot express our appreciation for the belief you have in us.

Despite the overwhelming excitement, this is only the beginning! With forty days still remaining, this project will remain active so continue to spread the word to friends and family until the project officially ends on May 7th.

Our dream is becoming a little more tangible everyday, and without your help, it would have been nearly impossible. We can't wait to see how far this project will take us.

We are The Cyclist 

We are a four piece new-age folk band from Chicago, Illinois and are extremely excited to be in the studio working on our debut EP release, scheduled for July 2012. However, this process can not be completed by just the four of us.

As independent artists, we are recording this album completely on our own. However, the music production industry is an expensive one. Between the costs of mastering, design, and production, the total really adds up quickly.

This is where you come in. Through the use of Kickstarter, we are launching a 45 day campaign to raise $1,500 for the funding of the production and release of our EP. This money will directly fund our project. 

By donating, you are helping fund a dream that has taken many years to develop. We understand that money is tight everywhere, and for that reason, we ask that you simply donate whatever amount you think is appropriate. In addition to being a crucial component in the success of our EP, there are also incentives to donating. Take a look at them, and decide for yourself.

Let this mean as much to you as it does to us.
