The Limestones are raising funds to create the group's newest  album since 2010.  We need to pay for studio time at Skyland Studios in Lakeville MN, mixing and mastering with Darren Rust, our audio engineer, and CD printing.  Down To Earth will have awesome a cappella renditions from artists like Josh Turner, The Beatles, Neon Trees, Keane, and many more!  

We sing at many events throughout the year to raise funds on our own.  We sang at the Relay For Life Leaderhsip Rally in downtown Minneapolis, a coroporate event for Thrivent Financial, and meetings with the St. Olaf Board of Regents.

We need your help to carry on our tradition of making high-quality a cappella albums.  We've raised a good amount of money on our own, but we need about $3000 more, so we're looking to our fans to help us out!  Thanks so much for visiting our Kickstarter page!  

Risks and challenges

We can only spend 7 days recording, so we need to record all our songs during that time. Our arrangements are complex and intricate, so we will need to spend a lot of time in the sound booth to perfect them. This process takes time, but will help make the album great.
