About this project
Hello there, charitable browsers of Kickstarter.com and dear, dear fans. Let us start by welcoming you to our project and taking the time to express our love for each and every one of you. We love each and every one of you. That felt good.
Anyways, we are The Hill Dogs and we are making our first full-length album!
We have gotten this far with your help and now we need your help to take the next step.
The problem: Even with weekly gigs, we cannot fund this album. We have everything to make this happen… but the money.
This is where you come in...
Where the money is going:
- $1200 – Recording & Mixing
- $800 - Mastering
- $1000 - Printing
- $500 - Advertising & Promotion
- Extra Donations - Tour & Music Video
- A gigantic, justified feeling of self-worth and the ability to confidently consider yourself a philanthropist
- The knowledge that you have helped us achieve our dreams
- Check out our dynamite rewards; seriously
What we will gain:
- The funds to get our musical lives on the road
- The knowledge that our goals are respected, appreciated, & supported
Information for those who are unfamiliar with our band:
We are a folk-rock/folk ‘n’ Roll band from Newberg, OR (near Portland, OR, so we are coming out of the Portland music scene).We are devoted to creating the unique sound that we have come to produce. The members include Taylor Kingman (guitar & lead vocals), Lucas Benoit (guitar), Kody Mikkelson (bass), Ricky Rohr (drums), & Kayla Stroik (viola). All members sing. The video above is a live video of one of the acoustic tracks on our upcoming album, but it is missing two members.
Here is another live video that demonstrates the sound of the full band…
