After 15 years of marriage, four kids and two individual careers we are finally ready to make a record together. We have spent the last year playing shows around the country and working up new material and are excited to share this with you. In fact, we are inviting our fans to join us in this effort.
We have decided to use Kickstarter a popular DIY crowd source funding platform. This model gives us the most freedom to manage our music and career. Kickstarter brings artists and fans together to fund and create artistic projects. This new album will truly be made with and for our fans.
We’ve already recorded three songs with Brad Jones, a very creative and talented producer. Every couple of months we will record a few more songs. This will give us time to write new songs along the way and manage a household with four kids. We are thrilled with the new music and excited to record a few more in January.
If you want to be a part of the experience, for $1 or more, you will be able to hear the new songs as they are released and be updated with an exclusive newsletter keeping you in the middle of the process. For a larger investment, you can join us for an exclusive private concert, have Bruce write and record a song for you, or even have us over to your place for your very own house party. There are so many ways you can get involved and be a part of our new record.
All the money you invest will be used solely for the production and promotion of our new album. We have a very experienced and talented team to not only record and produce the album but also to promote and market the album and manage your money. Our manager, Mike Crowley will co-ordinate the development of the record and oversee the marketing and promotion. Mike's recent work with Hayes Carll gives him a depth of knowledge that is necessary in today's changing marketplace. We also have an experienced music business CPA, Layne Lauritzen, who will manage 100% of the funds raised. Any money raised over our goal of $35,000 will be used to market and promote the album.
Hope to see you at a show!
Bruce and Kelly
