AfroBear at the Trocadero
AfroBear at the Trocadero

 

 AfroBear is nearly finished recording their debut album!  The band  is currently working with Philly  producer engineer David Ivory. David has been apart of multiple Gold records. Notable is his work on Eryka Badu's Triple Platinum record "Baduizm" He was also on the ground floor for Philly's own The Roots' first four albums including their masterpiece "Things Fall Apart" 

 AfroBear is also working out of the legendary Studio 4. With engineer Dan Tatarowicz (Bon Jovi, Lauryn Hill). Phil Nicolo will be mastering the album once all the tracks are in order.  Mr Nicolo is a Philly legend! His track record speaks for it's self. Working with the likes of Bob DylanJohn LennonSantanaBilly Joel and Lauryn Hill. We think Phil is the perfect guy to put the finishing touches on the bands eclectic Soulternative sound!

Risks and challenges

We are really close to wrapping up the album. Sidney has put on the Executive Producer hat. He sometimes takes it off to sleep...
Basically he is the liaison between the studios and the band. Whether it's sitting in on all the mixing sessions, scheduling recording time, figuring out budget plans, the list goes on...
We won't let you guys down! AfroBear plans on using all the money raised to help finish the album and promote it through the best channels possible.
We are so excited to be putting out the music a lot of you guys come to see live. We feel the love every time we grace the stage. We want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for all the support thus far!
