Help Sheverb produce + release debut album

Stretch Goal #2 - $8,000

Ready for this? If we hit this stretch goal, the album release party will take place in a rented ghost town in Texas, with several other bands, camping style. It will be an immersive, psychedelic experience of a lifetime, and all kickstarter contributors will be on the guest list.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Stretch Goal #1 - $6,000

We did it! Thank you to everyone that has already supported us. We are excited to get in the studio. If you have not already supported, please still consider doing so. The next $1,000 will enable us to split the t-shirt buy into both a male t-shirt and a ladies tank top. We will ask your preference when the campaign is done.  Also, this will provide us with a small budget to make our CD release party kick ass. Once again, thank you making this dream come true. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Seven songs were written in the dusty desert wind. These original, instrumental compositions tell the tale of a small group of friends on a camping trip in the southwest desert of Texas. These are songs of adventure, meant for the open road. Now we need your help to share them with the world.

Sheverb first performed in December of 2016. Since then, the project has evolved, we've sharpened our sound, and our identity has crystallized. As a band, we value collaboration, cooperation, respect and democratic decision-making. Our guiding philosophy for self-producing our debut album is the same, and we have the talent in place:

  • Art Production: CD and merchandise designs are underway with the talented Lauren Massy.
  • Tracking, Mixing & Mastering: We've met with many wonderful studios in the Austin area and have chosen the amazing Bell Tree Studio for this album.

Once this album is complete, Sheverb's music will be available on Spotify, Pandora and iTunes, in addition to CDs. We will also have wonderfully designed merch in the form of t-shirts and bandanas, copyrights and trademarks for our material, and PRO registration. We are just as professional as we are passionate about the music we're making, and want nothing more than to share it with the world.

Fundraising Goal

We have a lean budget for this ambitious project. We still may be eating ramen, but we're serious about working with great folks and paying them well for their work. Every dollar of this campaign is earmarked for one of them, or production costs:

The Band

Sheverb is a psychedelic, spaghetti western-infused rock & roll band from Austin, TX. Some of our biggest influences include Spindrift, Stereolab, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Cramps and Ennio Morricone. More than just a band, we're a collection of wild souls with a whole lot of love for each other, and we're finding salvation in music together.

This album has been a long time in the making and we are thrilled that it is finally coming to fruition with the help of our family, friends, and new friends yet to be made.
