Dearest Friends and Billies!
After many shows, winding roads, and several cycles of the moon, we finally have arrived. After so much hard work our debut full length album is finished and complete in all it's glory! The recordings were done what feels like forever ago. The album art is finished. The vinyl has actually been produced! We've made a record and are ready to share it. The thing is that it costs a boat load to do everything. Studio time, an engineer, mixing, mastering, cutting lacquers for vinyl, pressing vinyl, producing CD's, going on tour. It costs a lot. It's all done. And now we're seeking your help to cover the costs simply so we don't go in the hole to put this out to the world.
So here we are, hat in hand, asking for money. But we don't want your cash with nothing in exchange, no sir:
EVERYONE who donates $10 or more gets an immediate digital copy of the full album. That means in exchange for your support we're giving you our album before anyone! At certain levels you have a chance to get limited edition products like vinyl test pressings, posters, t-shirts and collectibles (images below). Beyond that we're giving you a gift that really is priceless: a chance to embarrass us in public, on stage, in front of all our friends and fans. I mean, you can shave Ornery Bills head in front of a live audience. We delve into performance art with "Queens Of Country", where we will dress in drag and perform classics from the likes of Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline live for an entire evening.
All we want is to put these tunes out into the world, hope that folks enjoy them as much as we do, and hit the road for 9 days at the end of summer and play shows every night like a band of buddies from way back when should.
We thank you for helping us make it happen.
Risks and challenges
The album is done! We just want to hit the road and let folks know that It's Good To Be Lonesome. That doesn't sound very risky. When you help out you will be part of a special group that gets access to the whole album, two plus years of our hard work, before anyone else.
It's Good To Be Lonesome!!
