We are a band. Here are some rough recordings that we have done locally. Our goal is to get these songs and others recorded at the prestigious Battle Born studio.
Tentative E.P. Track List
- Well Lived
- Dear Patience
These are the top picks (so far) for the E.P. Now, this could change depending on what Robert (the producer at Battle Born) thinks.
We have been performing these along with many other songs around St.George (our hometown). Now if you know anything about St.George, you know that it is a small place with very few venues. We play at all the local venues on a regular basis, we have done lots of home recording, and even recorded with different local studios here in town. And, basically, we feel we have exhausted our resources and that it is time to move to bigger and better things. We have the motivation and passion to produce an awesome album, and all we need is the funding to get the album done right.
Battle Born has expressed an interest in producing our music. Many big name bands that we actually listen to have recorded and had their music mixed at this studio, and it always sounds amazing. Our band has a really big sound, and we're confident that this studio will capture the energy and vision of our songs. We don't want our project to be handled by anyone but the best, so it can come across exactly how we want it to. Recording at such a high caliber studio costs some money. We've set an initial goal at $7500 to get us started on our EP album. This is going to get 4-6 songs recorded, mixed, and mastered. If we can get funding, we'll have a project that sounds very professional.
$7,500 is our goal. But if we can exceed that, we can do so much more. If we get $15,000 to $20,000 we could produce an entire album!
We are looking forward to sharing these professional recordings through Spotify, Itunes, Youtube, and possibly myspace if y'all think that is cool. So get excited.
Risks and challenges
We want to be able to record in a way that we can capture the energy and the vision of these songs. We're confident that we can do this with Battle Born's help. We have already played for the studio live, and they are very excited to work with us.
Though there could be some set backs. For example, if the owners of the studio want to use the studio when we are scheduled to use it, they have priority, so we would have to wait a bit. Or, if one of us were to get sick or injured for whatever reason, that could also set us back a little while.
In regards to the rewards, there could be delays with stickers and shirts if there are problems with the manufacturer. We have ordered and recieved shirts and stickers before without any complications, so we don't expect any now. As for cover songs, we will have to wait until the local studios are available to work with. So that will be more dependent on their availability rather than ours. However, in times past we have been able to book the studio, record, and get out without any serious delays.
For the most part we are confident that there won't be any setbacks. However, that is always a possibility. So if something does happen, we will notify all of you backers to let you know how the project and rewards are coming along.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
