We are Truckstop Darlin', a Portland, OR based rock and roll band that draws upon our southern upbringing as well as the independent spirit of the Portland music scene for influence.  Our members come from Tennessee, Kentucky, and Oregon, which gives our music breadth and an ability to be enjoyed across popular music genres.  

We are recording our 2nd full-length album.  This kickstarter was created to help us fund the recording, mastering, and promotion of what we think is our best music yet.  Being an unsigned band means that it is up to us to get our music recorded and heard.  So, we are reaching out to you, our fans and those who we hope to beome new fans, to help us complete this album.   

We are so honored to be able to play our music for people who can enjoy it.  And now, we are trying our hardest to take our band to the next level, to play shows and sell records all over the country, and if we are lucky, other countries as well.  We appreciate so much the fans who have helped us get this far by buying our first album and coming to our shows. Now, we ask for your help once more as we strive to create our best music yet. 

We say THANKS!  We have come up with 15 levels of donation, but please feel free to donate any amount you wish.  Every dollar gets us one step closer to finishing this album and bringing it to you.  For those who donate $1 or more, we have an assortment of what we think are some great incentives, including free downloads,  merchandise, a limited edition vinyl test pressing of the new album courtesy of United Record Pressing, and even personal performances for you and your friends!  

Once we complete this album, you will be seeing us on the road as we take our music all over the lower 48 states and Alaska! We are working with some amazing people, including our recording engineer and producer Matt Phelan, our booking agent, and a music promotion company who is going to help us get the word out about our music.  With their help, your support, and all of our continued belief in good music, we hope to continue to do what we love, and to create something for you to love.  

Thank you very much.
