Easton Stagger Phillips to record new album in January 2013

In the winter of 2008, Tim Easton (Nashville, TN), and Leeroy Stagger (Lethbridge, AB), and Evan Phillips (Anchorage, AK) got together in a cabin in Girdwood, Alaska to do some recording. The three roving troubadours wanted to capture a collection of songs that had a 'front porch' feel. The result was a full length album, ‘One For The Ditch’ and the beginning of a new band, Easton Stagger Phillips.

ESP released their debut album in the fall of 2008, touring Alaska as well as Ireland and Europe. After that, the band went separate ways, each of them focusing on their respective solo and band careers. 

Four years have passed since 'One For The Ditch' was released. With the band's personal and professional lives getting busier by the year, it seems there’s no better time than the present to get together and make some more music. That’s why ESP has decided to make a new album now.

In January, 2013 Tim and Evan will pack their things and fly to the barren, windswept prairies of Lethbridge, Alberta to record at Leeroy's basement studio, The Rebeltone Ranch. Once there, they'll spend 2 weeks recording and mixing a brand new batch of songs they've been writing over the last 4 years. The band's artistic bar is high, and the goal is simple: to make the best record possible for themselves, and for their fans.

The purpose of this Kickstarter campaign is to help finance flights, mixing and mastering of the new album, artwork, cd and VINYL duplication, merchandise, and a new website.

Please take some time to review the list of creative and exciting incentives offered by the band.  We look forward to recording and releasing a great album for all of you in 2013!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Easton Stagger Phillips is a unique band. All three of us live in different states (and countries). This adds major logistical (and financial) challenges to our band.

It will cost us almost $2,000 in travel expenses alone to get to Leeroy's studio to record in January. After that, we have plans to press the CD, as well as do a limited run of vinyl. Pretty much every dime we make in the next year (including Kickstarter) will be invested directly back into our band.

We can't thank our friends, families, and fans enough for continuing to support the art we make.

Thank you so much.
