TWO YEARS AGO…

We decided to take on the challenge of reviving Otown, a brand that had been lying dormant for a decade. It was not easy, by any means, but together along with our family, our fans, and a chosen few, we created the album Lines & Circles. We had no idea that taking that leap of faith would lead to such gratification and an overwhelming response by our audiences, our listeners, and even critics. The reaction has been unlike anything we’ve ever experienced in our careers, ever. So together, as a group, we made the decision that we can’t stop now.

FOR THE FIRST TIME...

For the first time in our bands history we are going to rely completely on our supporters to start this new chapter by looking to you to put us in the studio. Our 4th album will be financed 100% free from any label, which allows us to make our music directly for and responsible to only one party; you, our fans.

HOW THE MONEY WILL BE SPENT...

The album will be released in 2 parts; an A-side in the spring and a B-side in the summer.

The money we raise will be used for: Studio time with producer Mark Suhonen (Chasin' After You, Rewind, Skydive), engineers & musicians, editing, mixing, mastering, website design, album artwork, & updated photoshoot.

Risks and challenges

The music business is one of the most difficult and trying businesses that someone could choose as their profession. Throughout our career, we've had the opportunity to learn how to (and how not to) succeed from some amazing mentors.

We know exactly what we spent and how it was spent for the cycle of our last album, "Lines & Circles." While there will always be unseen obstacles, we are confident that we will accomplish this project as planned.

This time we're going to do it better, smarter, and we'll allocate funds where we've proven they will be most effective. We can only hope our fans will be as supportive as they always have been!
