We are Roy Ira, an indie band from Nashville, TN that plays a brand of Americana music that uses traditional and old-timey country influences mixed with indie rock and gospel.
We've been taking our time recording a full length album as a follow up to our acoustic EP which we released in 2010. And we've been spending a lot more money this time to get everything the way we want it. Because it's taken a lot more time than we anticipated, we wanted to go ahead and put something out, which is why we are releasing an EP with 2 originals and 2 covers for your enjoyment.
So this is a fundraiser, but it's also very much an album pre-order, and an EP release.
We've already spent a lot of our own money recording 12 songs, and depending on the fund-raise, we'd like to try some more. The money we get will go towards
- Mixing and mastering
- Packaging and CD duplication
- recording additional music
- paying professional musicians (who already worked for cheap)
- paying our engineer
- putting our music on sites like Itunes, Amazon, Rdio, etc....
Any additional funds we get over our goal will go to the record as well and will speed along future recordings. So watch our tongue-in-cheek video and give us some of that financial support!
