We are Bear Market Riot!

We’ve grown from playing at a small farmers’ market to venues across the central coast of California, and we couldn’t have done it without YOU!

Now, it’s time for us to make our first full-length record, and we want our community to be a part of it. Help us produce, and release our full-length debut… on vinyl!

We've got a dozen fantastic songs to record this winter. While we are taking on much of the production expenses ourselves, there are still many outstanding costs, including:

  • studio fees
  • equipment
  • engineering fees
  • musician fees
  • mixing/mastering 
  • publicity and promotion 
  • art design 
  • reproduction and packaging

To release an album properly, it takes a lot of support. We want to produce an album you'll know and love and not only release it digitally, but on CD, and Limited Edition 180 gram vinyl! Any donation you make will put us one step closer to making this album a reality. 

PLEASE make the largest gift you can. We only get funding IF we reach our goal—and to do so we need the support of each and every one of you! 

We couldn’t do this without the love and support of our fans, and our fantastic musical community. Thank you for all of your love!

Sincerely, 

Nick Motil and Kirk Nordby
Bear Market Riot

Risks and challenges

We've got a dozen songs, that our fans are already singing along with at our concerts, and we want to develop a few new tracks that you've never heard before.

We'll be focussed on not only creatively expressing ourselves, but integrating the talent of some of the incredible musicians in our community.

We WILL make it work, but we need your help! For this album, community is the means and the end.
