Fly High: SugarBeats Debut Album
We're taking on a project more ambitious than ever, and asking you to contribute to the process of creating something fresh, unique and different!
Over the last 3 years making music as SugarBeats we've progressively stepped up our production quality with every release. Our Groove City Romance EP marked a turning point in our music, shifting from simply making beats to creating fully fledged songs, while maintaining forward thinking sound design and the contemporary production methods we're known for.

Now we're at it again. This will be our first album featuring vocals and live instruments on every track.
We've lined up a studio band to record all our own samples, including guitar, violin, upright bass, saxophone, trumpet and of course, vocals. These are professional musicians, some of which have played for over 35 years.
We believe professional musicians deserve to be paid for their work and expertise.
All funds raised will go to the artists that help us create this album, as well as artwork and mastering costs. A small portion will also go towards the manufacturing costs of our rewards.
We have a range of awesome rewards for your generous pledge.
In exchange for your contribution we have lined up some great goodies, from digital downloads of the album, T shirts and Tank Tops, to private studio sessions and Skype calls.
Rewards are set to be delivered at the latest in December 2015, but we expect to send them out much sooner.
Where We're At Now:
We have about 10 songs written, each in different stages of production.
Some are just piano chords, drums, and vocals, while a few are near their final form. We'll be updating our blog as we reach new stages of development.
First Goal: The Album
Here's how our 5k goal breaks down:
-Session Musicians (Vocalists, Guitars, Violins, Saxophone, Trumpet, Bass)
-Rewards Manufacturing and Shipping (CDs, Clothing)
Shoot for the stars! If we can raise 10k we can do so much more:
-Film Music Video (Professional Videographer, Choreographer, etc)
-Tour With Live Vocalists & Instrumentalists
-Partially Fund Our Next Album too!
