LISTEN TO MUSIC!
FROM THE FIRST MUSIC KICKSTARTER EAST BAY SOUL 2.0 "BRASSALICIOUS"
FROM THE SECOND MUSIC KICKSTARTER EAST BAY SOUL THAT'S LIFE "LITTLE BLACK DRESS"
Hello All! This is Greg, I am a trumpet player, arranger and song writer, and a Grammy and Emmy nominated artist. We are East Bay Soul - a Jazz-Funk R&B 10 piece band of musicians that have been making music and touring together since 2008. Collectively we have recorded, performed and toured worldwide with hundreds of artists individually over the span of our careers. Our music is horn driven infused with R&B vocals with a wicked funky rhythm section.
Our Goal is to make music that connects a community of music lovers from all over the world.
The Band: Nick Milo - keys • Kay-Ta Matsuno - guitar • Greg Vail - alto, tenor saxes and flute, background vocals • Dwayne "Smitty" Smith - bass • Herman Matthews - drums, background vocals • Darryl Walker - lead vocals and tenor sax • Johnny Sandoval - latin percussion • Lee Thornburg - trumpet and flugelhorn, background vocals• Johnnie Bamont - alto, tenor, baritone saxes, background vocals ...and yours truly - trumpet and flugelhorn, background vocals
We have A Double Vision. The crowd funding goal is set for $55,000 for both recording projects. Soul Citizen is the 4th East Bay Soul album inspired to create new music for you, by us and with the people that have believed in us most. We've already started writing the songs and have some great ideas swirling around to make this our best CD yet! Sweet Soul Christmas is the first EP - extended play of classic Christmas songs that we have been playing live. Many of our fans have asked for a Christmas CD after our shows and from seeing our live rehearsal videos online. Now we can have it delivered to you just in time for the holidays!
It seems like the perfect time to do both!
We have some very creative people working behind the scenes already!
We are an independent ensemble with no outside record label or agent. We depend completely on our audience to help us make our music. The advantage of that is HUGE - we have no one between us. Our music comes straight from our hearts to your ears. It means everything to us to be able to make the music we want and the music you want too!
We need your support to fund all the behind the scene work that goes into producing a CD. To pay our collaborators, musicians, renting studio time, engineers, recording, mixing and mastering, CD artwork, photography, manufacturing the CD, promotion to get the word out on the radio, the internet, in print, setting up digital distribution, creating the rewards, mailing the rewards, paying the Kickstarter fee and basically create something that feels like magic.

Risks and challenges
I've been making records a long time and this will be our third Kickstarter recording project. We learn a lot each time. We have delivered our last two albums on time with no problems! We are very good at managing our time to be able to deliver both CDs on their prospective release dates. Soul Citizen in March 2018 and Sweet Soul Christmas in October 2017.
Our rewards have been sourced out before the projects begins, so there should be no issues in delivering the physical rewards.
We will keep you informed on all aspects of the project as we go through the work in progress.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
