Our third full length album is an all-night playlist, with songs for different times of night. We will also share the delicious dark with some of our favorite musical friends!

  • Gary Hanak
  • Lesley Hudson
  • Gustavo Adolfo Rodriguez Diaz (of Underdog Story)
  • Jared Coleman (of Underdog Story)

Now, $4000 sounds like a lot of money, and frankly, IT IS. So in cas you wondered...

The BIG expense is the pressing of both albums. That's half of it right there. Another big chunk is going to the fabulous Donna Miller at The Record Mill  for recording, mixing, and mastering. She does incredible work, and we are grateful to be working with her again. Musicians need to eat, too, so we want to make sure that the musicians get paid for their time. 

We are in rehearsal now, and we will begin recording very shortly. The project will be complete by the end of March, and that is when electronic copies of all album mp3's will be sent to backers. Physical copies of the albums will be sent once they are printed, ETA Mid-April

Risks and challenges

The only challenge will be recording the addition Critters, voicemails, and personal songs. The challenge will depend on how many will need to be done, but we will be able to do these in batches. We will keep everyone informed as we go along so everyone knows what to expect. At the outside, these will be done by the end of August, 2017.
