THANK YOU for supporting Hustle Souls! Fundraising aside, the fact that you are excited enough about this project to take some time to check us out and give us support of any kind means the world. If you know us, you know that we are one of the hardest working bands in the game and we will not let an ounce of your support go wasted! Lets do this thing!!!!

To sum up how this Kickstarter got started, check this article from Mountain Xpress, "This spring, Asheville-based soul, roots and funk band Hustle Souls released a series of live performance videos on Facebook. Filmed at the Snaggy Mountain artist retreat in Burnsville, the work caught the eyes and ears of studio whiz Eric Sarafin (Mixerman), who invited the band to collaborate. Ben Harper’s go-to mixer since 1995’s Fight for Your Mind and the engineer for Barenaked Ladies’ 2003 album Everything to Everyone, Sarafin produced and mixed fellow local rockers The Broadcast’s Dodge the Arrow. Hustle Souls and Sarafin have recording sessions booked for October, and, on Friday, Aug. 18, the band will launch a Kickstarter campaign to cover production costs and studio time for the proposed 10-track album......."

We are unbelievably excited to hit the studio and record this album. We only get one shot at a debut! THANK YOU for being a part of the Hustle Souls family and story. We literally can't do it without you!

Risks and challenges

We've been preparing for this our entire lives! We have self-recorded 2 EP's and road tested this material beyond belief. We have hired one of the most skilled and sought after producers in the world who has shown a serious interest in the band. We have secured space at Echo Mountain, the regions premier studio. We've got this. Our limitations, at this point are financial and that is why we humbly ask for your support!
