Roomful of Teeth is making its first album. This is an incredibly exciting moment in our story and we need help to bring it home.
Since 2009, our ensemble of eight classically-based vocalists has been coached by masters of some of the most vivid and varied singing styles from around the world: Tuvan throat singing, Korean p'ansori singing, yodeling, and belting among others. And we have commissioned some of today's most vibrant composers – Judd Greenstein, Merrill Garbus (of tUnE-yArDs), Caleb Burhans, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Rinde Eckert, William Brittelle – to compose specifically for our mix of polyglot vocalists.
The result is absolutely more than the sum of its parts. True to our original vision, we are reuniting the world's singing languages, creating music that is beautiful, smart and immediately engaging. And truly unique.
Our album, titled simply "Roomful of Teeth," will be released by New Amsterdam Records and produced by Grammy-winning engineer and producer, Jesse Lewis of Soundmirror. The tracks were recorded this past November at the DiMenna Center in New York City and we hope to release the album in late September.
Your support will help us cover the substantial production and post-production costs. From the expenses of the recording itself, to editing and mastering, to creating the artwork and manufacturing discs, we could not do this without help from our friends.
Thanks so much for joining us in this project,
Roomful of Teeth
