We started the band a little over a year ago as way to share our passions for writing and performing music while simultaneously curing our freshman year loneliness.  While singing together for the first time we realized this was more than a casual hobby.  So the work began.  After releasing our first album, Giant Whispers: in Color in May of 2013, we feel strongly that it's time to take our music on the road.  We are very excited to be bringing our music to Ryan's home state of Texas.  We are very grateful for our network of friends all across the state who have helped us host and plan shows. 

Along with our interest in music, we share a lifelong love of the visual and performing arts.  We're eager to put these talents to use in the making of our music video.  Our desire is to create an all medium inclusive world in which our music is the soundtrack.  Making this is a huge step towards that goal.  The video will also help to promote our music and reach a broader audience online.  We're certain that both of these projects are necessary steps in pursing music as a career.  Thank you for your continued support. It means so much to know we have people across the country who believe in us. 

We have posted the tour dates and venues down below. So you can see exactly where your money is going, we have also included our budget breakdown. You will notice from the total that the money raised from the Kickstarter will not be able to cover everything. With money we have made on album sales and performing, we will be able to cover the first $1,000. However, to see these projects through, it's imperative that we reach our Kickstarter goal.

Risks and challenges

We have never been on tour or made a music video before so there is a level of uncertainty that comes along with doing things for the first time. There is a possibility of a venue canceling on us, broken equipment, and production delays for the video. We feel prepared for the worst though. Having a heavy background in performing arts and production design we are used to working under pressure and in stressful situations. We have plenty of practice in improvising and working through things when issues arise. We do have warranties on equipment and all our venues and dates for the tour are booked so we have reduced the possibility of last minute cancelations. The production company we are working with will help us to produce a creative and quality video on a reasonable budget. Thank you for supporting us and our endeavors.
