About this project

Hey, this is Al Howard from the Heavy Guilt and we're here to make a record. We made our first album with money raised from a yard sale. I let go of my record collection, Erik parted ways with his Curb Your Enthusiasm dvds and Josh even sold his golf clubs.

We really met making that record. We headed up North to Prairie Sun Studios in Sebastapol and became fast friends through musical conversations. At that time we were a disparate group, but music was our common tongue. There was no initial intention of becoming a band, but the magic that happened during those sessions wasn't the kind you look away from.

We've been preparing for this second record for more than a year. Gigging, writing, practicing, living and breathing the Heavy Guilt. We recorded our first album in four days. We want to take time with this one, draw from our influences, get nuanced and layered. And create something memorable and timeless.

We have the dates booked, we have the engineer, we are the band. We just need some help.

Thank you.
