First of all, we want to thank for your support on our last album. We were absolutely blown away at the level of generosity we received from our growing family, and we made an album that we can honestly say that we are happy with. Through that album, we were able to tour the U.S, parts of Europe, landed a great licensing deal with Little Brother Music and had a few of our songs placed in some cool film and television programs. Needless to say, we are blown away by how much we were able to accomplish without the help of a record label. We did it together, with you.

Now, it's time for us all to join forces and make a record together once again. We have what we think is a really great album in the can. We recorded it at Fellowship Hall in Little Rock, AR. The studio experience was amazing. We tracked 16 songs live in 3 days. Of the 16 we have narrowed it down to 11 that we really think make a cohesive collection of songs. Since then, we hired the talented Chris Combs to do some keyboard, horn, and string arrangements that we are absolutely blown away with. We plan on mixing the album at Cardinal Sound in Oklahoma City with Michael Tripagnier, and we plan on having it mastered by legendery Pete Maher in London. This stuff is expensive, but we have managed to put together a pretty amazing team for the amount we need to make this happen. These kinds of decisions are what can take an album from sounding pretty okay to sounding like a world class recording. As you know, the record labels aren't exactly out there looking to invest in artists these days the way they used to. Fortunately, through Kickstarter we have a great model where we can pre-sale the album, some cool merch, and some awesome services in advance to help make the album a reality. We are so honored by the support we have received from our music family, and we are humbly asking for your help once again to get this record finished and in your hands.
