Hey guys! Maggie McClure and Shane Henry here. Many of you may know us as separate solo artists. We are also a married couple. Naturally, over the past 5-10 years we've played hundreds of shows all over the United States as a duo and have developed a very special chemistry on stage together.

We are thrilled to announce we are joining forces to start a new band together called The Imaginaries. We've been talking about doing this for a long time and we've been writing songs for the project for a few years now. Many of you have been asking us when we are going to do a project together (other than holiday music). Well, NOW IS THE TIME and we couldn't be more excited about the new music/band! The new music is a chance for us to explore some uncharted territory musically and do it together. Nothing means more to us than to be able to share the process with each other (writing, recording, touring).

Now we are asking for you all to get involved and be a part of the making and release of our DEBUT ALBUM as The Imaginaries! We are raising funds to record and properly release our first ever album together as The Imaginaries (with all brand new songs)! Between the 2 of us we've written/released a dozen (!) albums to date, and we've learned so much along the way. We want to work with the best in the business on all fronts (from recording, to mixing, to graphic design, to video/photography, PR, etc.) and need your help in order to do so. THANK YOU for getting involved and helping us make this project a reality!

We've taken the first few steps as The Imaginaries by going to Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL in April and recording/filming 2 brand new songs live with an amazing band for the OneMic Series (to be released soon)! We are more than committed to making this project a successful reality!

Shane has opened for Etta James, The Neville Brothers, Jonny Lang, & more and has performed at iconic venues such as the Hollywood Bowl. His new album Light in the Dark was released worldwide in the Spring of 2017 and was named one of the Top 20 Albums of 2017 by Blues Rock Review.

Risks and challenges

We are so grateful that Kickstarter exists and is such a powerful tool for artists today! We've put a lot of thought into this project. The $20,000 goal was set after months of thought and research, and is the minimum amount that will allow us to pull this off in a timely manner and at a high quality professional level. Thank you for getting involved and helping make this campaign a success! This is an "all-or-nothing" campaign. If for some reason we don't meet our goal of $20,000, your cards will not be charged.
