NC band Toddlers seek funding for independent debut album! Toddlers blend familiar song-writing traditions with post punk & pop noir.

We are Toddlers, a musical quartet from Carrboro, NC.  Within a few years, Toddlers has grown from the soul-spearing solo songs of Nathan Toben to include Ellis Anderson, Noah Dehmer & Missy Thangs. Now operating as a full collaborative effort, Toddlers have gained an exciting amount of momentum in the last year with three single releases, two live music videos and a fully realized record. In September, independent of label support, Toddlers will record this debut record, but need your support.

For three weeks Toddlers will record with Mitch Easter in North Carolina in his master studio, the Fidelitorium. The studio is world renowned; we think such a place and such care is deserving to capture these songs. Once recorded, the songs must be mixed and mastered in order to complete the album. These are the integral parts of our budget. With your support, Toddlers will complete the record and share the experience with you as it happens. Beware! If our financial goal is not met, then 100% of donated money will be returned to backers.

To give an idea of our music, we have included in this letter, now five demos of our songs and a live music video, some of which can be seen on our website: www.tdlrs.com. There you will also find information on shows, merch and our blog. 

Feel free to contact us with any questions about this Kickstarter campaign, the record, or anything! at wearetoddlers@gmail.com. And please pass the word along to anyone that you think would be interested in supporting this musical project.

Last but not least, Toddlers would like to take this opportunity to thank our mentors and friends who have made so much of this possible: Casey Cook, Jacki Huntington, Soleil Konkel, Jessee Paddock, Ari Picker, Wesley Wolfe & our friends and family.
