We're already indebted to the musicians that came before us, why not also be indebted to those investing in the future of good music?  So we ask YOU, our family, friends and fans to share in the making of our debut album.

Good Thunder was formed by Cory Waid (guitar) and Melanya Torosyan (vocals) in the Summer of 2012. Once the EP "yesyesyes" was released we were joined by local musicians and friends, Joseph Sabbag (drums) and Trevor Morris (bass), in hopes of making Good Thunder a live experience. After getting together in Joe's garage, it became obvious to us all that Good Thunder was headed in a new direction. While maintaining the subtle intensity, driving rhythm, and melodic beauty that played a large role in the production of the EP, our sound became more defined and raw.

With your contribution we hope to raise $6,000 to cover the cost of recording, mixing and mastering nine songs that we've labored over the past six months nearly every day. 

  • $3,500 will get us enough studio time to record all the instruments and vocals
  • $1,500 will cover the cost to mix the songs
  • $1,000 for mastering, the final process that will polish the tracks

Since we have to schedule studio time during evenings, weekends, and the occasional 'sick' day, the entire process will take two months to complete.   Please consider donating to the cause.  Any amount helps!

Risks and challenges

After a month of research, we found studios, engineers and someone to produce the album with us, within the $6,000 budget. As with any good plan, we expect obstacles along the way, but with the support from YOU we can complete this album.
