The Outside Track are an international band hailing from Ireland, Scotland and Cape Breton Island. By combining vocals, harp, accordion, guitar, flute, fiddle, Cape Breton and Irish dancing we cover a broad spectrum of Celtic music. We have been performing together for the past 8 years but we all live in separate countries. As crazy as that sounds, it actually works, but it can be difficult, to say the least! Last year we toured Canada, Australia, the UK, Ireland, Denmark, France, India, Germany and the Czech Republic. 

This projects main goal is to raise enough money to complete our 4th studio album. With the money raised we can help pay for studio time, mixing, mastering, processing, and one of the most expensive costs : ADVERTISING. To promote this album to the fullest, we need to reach our goal to properly advertise a product that we worked so hard to create. 

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is to get our music out to the greater public, i.e. Radio play. Since we all live so far from each other the only way we can get our music out to the public is by touring, and touring means we are on the road a minimum of 4 weeks at a time to make it work. By having our music on radio, it would mean a generated income and reaching listeners all over the world. We have kept this in mind recording our new album and have radio edits of songs and tunes ready to go. We are beyond excited to share a year of hard work and our fresh new sound with you.
