About this project

We are so excited to announce to you all that we will be recording our 2nd full length record this January in Nashville, TN!

Over the past two years, we have had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of the most amazing bands in the music industry. We have traveled all over the nation and met some of the most amazing people. These memories that we have as Kye Kye are only the beginning. With our first CD "Young Love" coming out almost two years ago, we have had time to mature as musicians and gain so much experience personally, as a whole band, and in the music world that we feel has found its way into the new songs that we have been writing. Thank you for your support, encouragement, and positive response over the past two years about our music.

We have the privilege of working with Producer Chad Howat, who has worked with the following artists: Paper Route, Jon Foreman {Switchfoot}, Joy Williams {The Civil Wars}, Brooke Waggoner, etc. We will also have some additional mind-blowing musicians that will be doing guest appearances on this album.

Working with such amazing individuals means paying them for the knowledge and the years of experience that they bring to the table. Because we are an independent band and are in a position of having to pay a bill that most record labels pay for, we need our amazing fans support and help to make this happen. Although we don't have a record labels financial backing, in return, we get to retain all the rights to our music as well as have the freedom to write about whatever we feel passionate about in whichever way we feel called to. As with everything else that we put our hands to, we feel that we have it in our hearts to take this record to the next level in terms of recording quality and working with a producer who knows how to take our sound to the next level.

We believe whole heartedly in the music and message of this next record, and are extremely excited about it getting into as many hands as possible. We have sat, prayed, listened, envisioned, demoe'd what will be put into this album for the past two years, and it has finally come time to start that journey toward making the final product. We hope that you will partner with us in making this project even more of a tangible reality! The plan for the release of this upcoming full length album is in the Spring of 2013.

How Kickstarter works is by an "all or nothing" deal. So if the whole $40,000 is not raised within 30 days, we dont get any of it.

Risks and challenges

We really believe our next step as a band is to bring in a group of professional individuals that we believe in, to help mold this record to its full potential, and hiring professionals comes with a large cost. Your pledges will go directly to pay for the pre-production, producing, engineering, studio costs, mixing, mastering, reproduction of our first batch of CDs for this next album.

Thank you for your continual support for our music, and we can'tttttt wait for your ears to hear this album

Love – Kye Kye___Olga, Tommy, Alex, and Tim
