The Making of Soul Trance: Back Story
At the start of 2012, 27 Lights set out to develop a new set of songs at the band's home in Uptown New Orleans. The first recordings began in March: Bob Payne, Bill Fletcher and Vince Winik laid down drum, guitar, piano, and bass tracks, then sent the skeleton songs out to a short list of vocalists and instrumentalists invited to contribute to the album.
These instrumentalists and vocalists include:
- Nick Ellman – Saxophone
- Carson Whal – Trumpet
- Meagan Simone – Vocalist and Songwriter
- theadamstewart – Vocalist and Songwriter
- Tha Royal Bandit – Rapper and Songwriter
- Daniel Andrews – Cello
- Tah – Vocalist and Songwriter
- Dexter Gilmore – Vocalist and Songwriter
- Lloyd – Vocalist and Songwriter
Here are some videos from the Making of Soul Trance:
What We Need to Do Now
We're now ready to begin performing in support of Soul Trance in the Baltimore, DC, and Richmond areas with featured artist Meagan Simone. We also hope to go on tour this winter with Thomas Tah Hyde. But since we spent every cent we had to produce the album, we have no money.
We need about $5000 to be road ready. First, we need to pay registration fees for our record and pay a couple of bills we incurred in setting up our rehearsal space. Together this should cost $800.
Second, we need a trailer to haul our equipment around. These run about $2000.
We also need to get more T-shirts, CD's, and stickers, which will cost $1200. Finally we'll need some money to pay for food, gas, and occasional lodging. For this we budget $1000 to get started, then hope to fund the tour using revenues from the shows.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your support! Anything you can offer during this developmental period of our career will never be forgotten. Remember if we don't make this $5000 dollar goal we get nothing so don't wait, contribute now!
