About

$2,100

Silence Kid has always been a DIY venture. We practice out of Linda's basement twice a week, repair our instruments ourselves, and record demos with a single usb microphone. When we wanted a custom bass drum head, Jack sacrificed his most beloved pair of gold lame leggings for the cause. Honestly, we can't say we mind it too much. We're two musicians who put a lot of value in hard work, elbow grease, and working with what we have. We love our lo-fi recordings, don't get us wrong; we just think the time has come to evolve our sound. For that, we're going to need some help. 

If we reach our goal of $2000, Silence Kid will be able to finally put an album into the world that we can really be proud of. Your contributions will allow us to record and master THIN WALLS professionally, as well as distribute it physically and through iTunes and Spotify, and potentially give us a head start on saving for a tour to support the album. Take a look at our incentives and rewards for contributors, every dollar counts, and we aim to do everything we can to express our gratitude.
