Hop't - debut EP

$2,540

33


Hop't is recording their debut EP and needs your help!  

If you are reading this, we already appreciate your interest in our band. Hop't is something that started with four musicians who wanted to give playing live music a shot. We are all influenced by a multitude of different musical genres and have done well playing live shows in Baltimore and surrounding areas for the past year. At first, we focused on developing a repertoire of cover songs that would be popular at local venues. These songs have served us well as we bonded and learned to perform together, but we are ready to take the next step as a musical group.

Over the past few months, we have been busy writing original pieces and have several songs that we are proud of and ready to share with the world. However, the process of having a professional recording session and gathering better equipment for live shows is an expensive one.

We are asking for help with funding for this venture from friends, fans, and family who understand how much we love playing music for people. We are currently beginning the recording and mixing process, and funding this expense will be our first priority. Our other goal is to purchase high quality equipment (amplifiers and mixing boards) for our performances so that we can put on a great sounding live show.

With any level of support, you will receive a token of our gratitude. Whether it is our finished EP, or merchandise that represents our band, we want to recognize your kindness for being involved in helping us get to where we want to be as a band.

Thanks!

Risks and challenges

As with any major project, there is always the potential for hiccups and setbacks along the way. As we have already begun the recording process, we hope to complete a full EP of original songs and continue to play live shows in Baltimore and beyond.
