It's our first album! It's been 3 years! Help us get this out!

Crazy Pills are: Amanda B. writing, singing and guitaring the tunes; Jim of Clouder keeping the backbeat on drums; and Eddie of pow wow! on bass, backing vocals, and cat patrol. Here we are, as featured on Breakthru Radio's Serious Business session with Travis Harrison: http://blip.tv/seriousbusinessonbtr/crazy-pills-serious-business-on-btr-ep123-6600924

Conceived in 2010 as a means to bring forth soulful, guitar-driven music in homage to the R&B influenced rock of the 60s, the grit of the 70s and the punk of the 80s, we aim to sonically deliver something catchy, heartful and nostalgic that you've never heard before.

After many years and a lot of life changes, we have hit the studio with the amazing Jeff Berner at Galuminum Foil (get at him, he's GREAT - we can't sing his praises enough - trust us, we've tried but that isn't gonna make the album cut) to document the sweat, blood and tears that have inspired the songs. We have already contributed a large chunk of our personal savings into booking the studio time but the costs of mastering and pressing to vinyl are still slightly out of reach - which is where you come in!

HELP US RELEASE THIS BABY BY JULY!

For the cost of two drinks or lunch (or both, if you like boozy lunches!), please consider this investment as a pre-payment for the digital and / or vinyl! AND for those who want to really, really help us out, we have lots of goodies and goodwill that comes rolled into your contributions!

Deliverables will arrive as soon as late July if we receive your support! Proceeds that exceed our set goal will help us press the VINYL and recoup our out-of-pocket recording costs.

THIS ALBUM IS WARM WEATHER LISTENING...

Thank you so much for your support - past, present and FUTURE!

♥ Amanda, Jim and Eddie!

Risks and challenges

It's hard to ask people for money or help, but we hope that by prepaying for the record, people will consider this an investment of love for us and good rock and roll music. OH YEAH.
