"Slightly Higher In Canada"
...is the name of our new album, recorded over 5 days last May at Sunset Hill Studios in Morin Heights, Quebec.
The Story Behind the New Album:
For the album, we were somehow able to convince one of our favourite musicians in the world, Dave King (of "The Bad Plus", a band we all love), to spend those five days with us in studio as "producer". He was inspiring and hilarious, and with his unique genius he helped us capture raw, meaningful performances of 12 original compositions and one cover, with no overdubs or edits.
Why We're Asking for Your Help:
We love the music we recorded and can't wait to put it out into the world, but our indie-jazz budget only covers about half of what it takes to get there, so we're asking for your help to get this album mixed, mastered, and printed.
In exchange for your contribution, we're offering 18 different reward packages, including digital or physical copies of the new album, our previous albums, a signed tour poster, a USB key with all our albums and bonus material(!), a cover version of a song of your choosing, custom-composed ringtones, and private lessons, workshops, and concerts.
We really appreciate whatever contribution you can make. Your support over the years, whether it's through Kickstarter or by coming to shows and buying albums, is so important to us. We love what we do but sustaining an indie-jazz trio for 8 years and counting wouldn't be possible without YOU!

Risks and challenges
The hardest (and most fun) part of this project is over; the record is in the can. What's left to do is:
1. Mix the album
2. Master the album
3. Print CDs
4. Assemble and ship rewards to our kickstarter supporters
This is our third album, so we're familiar with this part of the process and we're confident we'll be able to follow through with our rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
