This will be The Whileaways third album and we have a collection of songs written and ready to be recorded.

We are headed north to Antrim for the recording, and will have special guest musicians joining us on double bass, drums and brass. The money raised through this campaign will fund the recording, mixing, mastering, duplication, artwork and promotion of the album.

Since recording our last album a lot has happened. Our sound has matured and evolved as a band over time and we really want to capture that in this recording. We have continued the process as before, writing our songs individually and coming together to share and shape them into something new. We are three singers cut from the same cloth, and this process of creating new music together remains exciting.

We've been involved in some really interesting collaborations over the last couple of years, including working with some orchestras and a brass and string ensemble. When writing these songs we've been influenced by that experience, by the endless possibilities that it presents. We want to present a taste of this sound on the album, but also to explore  the opposite of this - the bare vocal tapestry that really represents what we are all about as a band. 

We have been rehearsing and working in pre-production over the last few months and are really excited to get into the studio and make this happen. 

We thank you for coming on this journey with us

Risks and challenges

It is challenging for independent artists without the backing of a record label. There are many practical and financial risks and challenges involved. In reaching our goal, this Kickstarter campaign will allow us to address these challenges and be free to focus on creating and recording a quality album.
