Similar to our last record, My Oh My (2009), this project will be a collaboration between
musicians/magic makers------->
Jake Merkin (jakemerkin.bandcamp.com/),
Joey Dosik (vimeo.com/14217939),
Theo Katzman (theokatzman.com),
myself (www.annaash.com),
and
creative director/artist--------> Sam Strand (www.samstrand.com).

Unlike our last project where we recorded in a church, we're going to use a variety of acoustic spaces and studios. Although I adored making a live record in a gorgeous old dusty echo echo of a church, this time around we want to get a little bolder, and a whole lot bigger-- we're talking strings & horns & gospel choirs.

We'll also be pressing it to vinyl (no CDs, just download sleeves and records). In order to do this, we're going to need a bit of cash money assistance (studio time, musicians, engineers, mastering, packaging, and album artwork.) I've been saving up, waiting tables, and playing shows, but without a label there's no way I can finance a full-length recording project on my own.

The tunes are ready, the players are lined up, and we're spending all of our extra hours hammering out arrangements and making garage demos-- one of which you can hear in our new video, Just Like the Movies (http://vimeo.com/16749768). I'll be making blog updates on annaash.com and trying to make some more music videos with photographer extraordinaire Tomo Saito.

Once more- Here is a concrete list of what we will use your donations for:

Gospel choir!
Individual Musicians!
Studio time!
Engineering!
Mastering!
Record sleeve/Vinyl!
Album artwork!

Thank you so very much for your support.
