In 2012, Jonas Friddle recorded and released two albums: "Belle de Louisville," and "SyncoPony." The albums have been met with great success and rave reviews.  A large part of the success is due to the amazing talents that joined Jonas in the studio.  Those talents (Anna, Maria, Jarod, Bailey, Arielle, Evan, Andrew) went on to form The Majority and perform together around Chicago:

Now we're ready to go back into the studio and record our first album as the full band!  The songs are written and rehearsed and we've picked the amazing Kingsize Sound Labs to do the recording.  Based on our previous experience with recording we are estimating a cost of $10,000 for recording, mixing, printing and releasing the new album.  Our goal is to raise $8,000 through kickstarter to add to our current funds.

Risks and challenges

Recording and releasing an album is full of variables that make it hard to nail down a specific time when the project will be completed. After the already long process of recording the songs is finished, the mixing and mastering process begins! All the while there is artwork, design, and content to be finished and printed. Even when the albums themselves are done and ready, there is a period of months dedicated to press and preparation of the release before the albums can be made available. However, this band has experience with the process and we're confident that our timeline to finish the project and release the albums in the Summer of 2013 will be met!
