-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello Friends!

We are here today to follow up on our last release Mighty Seed which came out in May 2013! Mighty Seed was self-recorded, self-produced, and self-released with money we made from playing shows, touring, selling merchandise, fundraising, and saving out of our pockets. While we are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support we received from our fans, we now have before us the chance to create something even better and more ambitious!

We have come upon the opportunity to work with visionary independent producer Roger Greenawalt, who has postponed the launch of HIS exciting new undertaking to join us and be a part of OURS. Roger has contributed to many projects and worked with many musicians we adore and respect (Frankenhooker, Beatles Complete On Ukulele, Rufus Wainwright's Want Two, and The Manson Family—an opera which featured Iggy Pop). Because of his insanely busy schedule and the high demand for his work, we are under a significant time restraint to get into the studio with him by the beginning of November. We are beyond certain that with his ear and experience—and of course the new songs we have worked feverishly on—that we can bring to you a groundbreaking new album. Not only will we be bringing this to YOU, but we are hoping that YOU will join us in this: our next Great Balancing Act.

Let's talk brass tacks. We try to keep our overhead at a minimum. Usually, we would take on an undertaking like this by playing shows and selling merchandise but due to the time sensitivity of working with Roger we are unable to do so. That is why we are rallying for YOU to join us. Essentially, YOU will be our record label. You are the boss! (and way cooler than our other bosses) YOU are in charge of the projects YOU want to see succeed. Our set goal is $9,250, which is just under the bare minimum of what we need for this album to get recorded and mixed. We set it at that goal because with Kickstarter if we don't meet our goal we don't receive anything and this chance to work with Roger will pass us by. However, the expenses needed for everything else such as: pressing, production fees, shipping, rewards, vinyl pressing, etc…will exceed 14K! YIKES! So, every penny we raise over $9,250 will go to the finished production of Great Balancing Act, bigger and better rewards, and our first ever VINYL RELEASE! We COMPLETELY understand and relate to the fact that you all work your asses off for the money you make! So we will be crystal clear in explaining where your investment will be going.

HERE IS THE BREAKDOWN:

Recording/Mixing =                          $10,000

Mastering =                                       $250

Pressing the album =                        $1,410

Vinyl + digital downloads =               $1,223

Shipping + rewards =                        $300

Kickstarter/amazon fees =                 8-10% of goal est @ $1,318

Total with all expenses =                   $14,501

By investing in—or pre-ordering—this record you will be contributing to a future built on your terms. We have been a "Do It Yourself" band for the last 7 years and we want to change the way things are done. Before the D.I.Y movement, musicians were under the thumb of major labels while consumers were pigeonholed by what the mainstream media wanted them to hear. Now, we are striving to create a new movement—a "Do It With You" movement. We believe strongly in the communities we build; the stronger ours becomes, the more opportunities we will have to share with those that join us for the ride. We hope you'll join us!

We are working painstakingly to spread the word! PLEASE BE OUR VOICE! Word of mouth is some of the best referral you can give. Your friends and family trust you and we do too!!

PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU'VE PLEDGED TO OUR KICKSTARTER. SPREAD OUR LINK AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE!

You have helped create this community and we can ONLY do this TOGETHER!

Risks and challenges

Speed bumps and/or delays are the nature of this beast. We have certainly had our share of them in our 7 years as a DIY band (writing, recording, mixing, booking, touring, promoting, rehearsing, training new band members, fixing our tour van, working day jobs AND trying to get some sleep and/or food in us!) Things sometimes get a bit hectic; after all, we ARE only human! That's why getting to our goal (and hopefully our stretch goals) and making this opportunity before us into a reality is so important. Having a professional producer and engineer record us will take a ton of weight off our shoulders. This way we can focus on making an amazing album, getting YOU your rewards, and adapting quickly to any challenges that may arise. And of course we will always update you and keep you close to us during this entire endeavor!
