All I want for Christmas is a Tour and a New Record
Together we are going to raise $25,000 to fund our Tour w/ Tyler Ward & the New Record w/ NEEDTOBREATHE producer Rick Beato!
Here's a video highlighting our first day on the road. Please consider pledging today so that we can make the record happen.
This year we have:
- Played SXSW
- Shared the stage with Dave Barnes
- Opened for The Beach Boys in front of 55,000 people.
That was just the first six months!
We know that 2013 will be 5x bigger & we need your help to make that happen. We have recently signed with TopBlip as our booking agency & they have landed us the opening slot for Tyler Ward. (Yes, that Tyler Ward - the one who has over 300 Million hits on YouTube.) We are extremely excited about playing (what should be) a sold out East Coast Tour in December 2012!
Also, famed producer Rick Beato (NEEDTOBREATHE) has signed on to produce our next record. This is a HUGE step forward for us.
It's also incredibly expensive.
That's where you come in. With our friends & fans support, we know we can raise $25,000 to pay for the Tour & the Record. We have 30 days to hit $15,000, but our hope is that we will smash that really early & go on to raise more than $25,000.
Thanks so much for being a part of making our dreams come true.

Risks and challenges
So there are some natural risks involved with a project like this. The main risk involves the timeline. Our hope is that we will be done with pre-production and ready to start recording by the end of January 2013. Then we will record all the instruments, the vocals, and send the record off to be mixed and mastered. At that point we will make really cool designs for the album artwork and have it mass produced to put in your wonderful hands.
As you can see, there are a lot of pieces involved in the plan. When that's the case, there are lots of small things that can go wrong, in turn pushing back the expected April release date. However, we have an amazing team of musicians in the band and in our community that will come together to make the record. In addition, RIck Beato (our producer) has been doing this for years and is no stranger to a deadline.
So, please, rest assured that though the challenges exist, we are confident because of the people involved and because of our experience in making records that we can produce an amazing new record and get it in your hands.
Thanks so much for all your support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
