About

$3,500

44

For five years as a band, we have been writing, recording, and performing original music in Columbus, Ohio and around the United States. In that time, we have released a full-length album and EP.  

For our newest album, Restless Disposition, we have spent considerable time and money to create an album that we are truly proud of-- one that demonstrates our dedication to music for our friends and fans. We need your help to assist with the costs associated with producing, recording, and distributing a full-length studio album.    

What goes into a venture like this? 

  • Studio Time (recording) 
  • Studio Time (musicians) 
  • Mixing and Mastering
  • Travel Expenses (meals, lodging, gas) 
  • Vehicle Maintenance 
  • Album Manufacturing 
  • Distribution (iTunes, Spotify, etc) 
  • Album Art/Design 
  • Videography/Photography 

 In total, these costs can fall at least between $8,000-$10,000. (Not to mention the hours upon hours of rehearsals and arranging leading up to the recording!) 

 We are only asking for your support to reach a portion of that total: $3500. This will ensure that we can support ourselves to create this album, go on the road, and get into the studio for the next one. 

 Music, for each of us, is a lifelong passion that is central to who we are. We write, practice, and perform mostly at our cost because it is what we love to do. Your support for this album will mean that we can, for another day, continue to follow our passion.
Thank you,

Matt Monta, Jamie Molisee, Bryan Kossmann, Matt Paestch

Risks and challenges

As independent artists, we put ourselves on the line with each gig we play and each album that we record. We're professionals, though, we know that the business is tough. We care about our music though. And we care about our fans and the people who support us. And we think that that dedication is what will make us successful. We hope you consider supporting this album and more in the future-- your support makes it happen.
