We are writing to you today to send you an invitation... an invitation to be involved in our next full length album. It's been an interesting journey this past year.... and this album, man has it been cathartic. The next album will be named after the title track "Coyote", which was Sarah's father's name, who sadly passed away this past year. It's been a really special time to band together and write these songs, that are just waiting to be recorded.
We will be heading back to record with Floyd Reitsma at Studio Litho. We"ll also be working with Luke Dumke as a post production engineer at Pinehill Studios for some finish work to give the songs a very organic feel, adding some unique instrumentation, percussion and ethereal sounds to Floyd's work. Many of you remember our last album "Angeline" that was tracked almost entirely live at Litho. This time around we will be tracking a few elements live, but will be approaching the album with a bit of different lens. Our band has also grown...we've added drums, an electric guitar lead and electric bass as well as Sarah's playing a decent amount more electric guitar. The three sirens, Sarah, Natalie and Carina have also spent a good deal more time singing together.... so their harmonies have locked into a new realm of closeness. This album is true to the previous Americana roots but with a bit more edge. We are really excited to get in the studio this June and would love you all to get involved to help us do that.
There's a wide range of really interesting packages, but if it's a lean season, please don't feel obligated and pushed like you're standing in front of the Shammy sales guy at the fair... just pass the good word along and keep on supporting us by coming to our shows when we're in your town!
Our last Kickstarter goal was for a thousand dollars less, so we are pushing that out a bit, and we have a few more stretch Goals to see what extra funding we can raise to allow us to further enhance the footprint of this album with music videos, strategic marketing and even perhaps pressing vinyl
We will be shooting to raise $8000 as our baseline goal!!!
1st push goal is $10,000 and would be for a music video
2nd push goal is $12,000 and would be for a PR push and some extra merchandise to be sold at shows
3rd push goal is $13,500 and would be to press vinyl copies of the album
Risks and challenges
We have taken a good amount of time with these songs. We truly were supposed to record them last year before Sarah's father passed...but we pushed out the date and now we have some newer songs that wouldn't have made it on the album. There are always risks to any fundraiser, to any project really.... but man are we ready to take them on. Our last Kickstarter was a thousand less, so we are pushing that out a bit, and we have a few more stretch Goals to see what extra funding we can raise to allow us to further enhance the footprint of this album with music videos, strategic marketing and even perhaps pressing vinyl.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
