Thank you for taking the time to check out our campaign. As many of you know, we have been playing original songs steadily, for almost two years now. We are beyond grateful to any of you who have seen a show, bought a shirt, or even liked our pages. It is time now to record the songs.
The story of the Mammoths begins circa 2004 in Austin, TX where David Kapsner, Michael Jekot, and Tyler Rush grew up playing music together. We went off to different colleges across the country to pursue various degrees. Music remained a deep-rooted passion for all of us. A few post grad years went by, and the desire to pursue music became something we could not ignore.
After heartbreak and some trying times, songwriting became an outlet for us. We started to take it very seriously. At that time, the three of us were spread out between Austin, Houston, and Dallas, respectively. Every weekend for a year we traded off making trips across the State to write, practice, and eventually play shows.
In early 2016 David and Michael moved from Dallas and Houston, and left their corporate jobs to join Tyler in Austin, where we met our current drummer, Tim Durand. Tim has spent the past 10 years of his life touring the country with various bands. He landed in Austin about a year ago to follow his dreams. All he wanted to do was play drums, and find like-minded musicians who were as passionate as himself. Things happen for a reason, and it is no coincidence that Tim fell into our lives. The four of us have an unbreakable chemistry. We are not only bandmates, but friends for life.
In about a year and a half, we have gone from playing open mics to the main stages at the House of Blues. All that being said, this project means the world to us. Like everything now-a-days, this whole music thing costs money to get into the game. That is where you all come in!
After studio time, hiring a producer, making a video, printing CDs, buying merchandise, and marketing, this project will cost around $10,000! To the right, we have various levels of donation gifts to those of you who decide to graciously help us reach our goal. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for us in this industry, and we have you all to thank!
All the Love,
David, Michael, Tyler, Tim

Risks and challenges
In order for this project to be successful, we need the entire $10,000 to be donated by YOU! If we receive $9,900, Kickstarter will return the money, and our project will be unsuccessful. We strongly believe that we have the best family, friends, and fans out there. Even the smallest amount will go along way. Thank you all for everything. We will send donation gifts as quickly as possible once our goal is met. See y'all out there!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
