After a number of years of keeping this band mostly to ourselves, we've decided to record an album and provide access to our jealously guarded little secret.  Please join us in creating one more small piece of art to uplift the human condition.  

Risks and challenges

You'll notice that at certain funding levels we've promised vinyl albums as a reward. Although we've all recorded and pressed physical albums to CD format, none of us have experience with the process of producing old-school albums. Should some unforeseen obstacle prevent us from putting "Lil' Bear" on vinyl, we promise to personally work with all funders to substitute that reward with a satisfactory replacement. What can we say...? We love y'all!
