Hello everybody, we are The O's from Dallas, TX and we are looking for folks to join our team and to become Executive Producers of our next full length album - a project we are recording starting at the end of November.
We decided to record this new album, at the recommendation of our great producer, Chris "Frenchie" Smith, in El Paso at the legendary Sonic Ranch Studio. Its a state of the art, top notch studio where musicians can stay on site, eat on site, and record. You may ask why we've decided to travel away to record and it comes down to quality in general. We want to make the best possible album and we really don't want any distractions while making it. We feel that being isolated in El Paso, away from everyone, we can truly focus on the task at hand and give you everything you want from a record, and without any interference from the outside. This album is for you - hell, its for all of us and we want to share with you the greatest thing we've ever done.
The unfortunate fact about the music business is that it takes a significant amount of money to produce a great record and to stay on the road touring. We've secured an incredible rate for the studio and for the engineer, but now we have to actually get it done! This is where you - the executive producers - come in. Every cent you use to pre-buy our albums, shirts, private events, etc. will be used to create, manufacture, distribute, and promote The O's new album. We are spending half the money on the recording and the other half to hire a publicist to push the album. This will give us the best chance of success.
Plus, you'll get yourself a copy WELL BEFORE everyone else gets it. Sounds good huh? While we joke around a lot, this is no joke! We are going to tour extensively in 2013 to promote this album. First, in the US, then SXSW, then Europe and the UK, then the US again, then the UK and Europe again, and then back to the US again. We won't stop until everyone get's their money's worth. We may take naps here and there - but nothing permanent.
You are The O's Executive Producers and are essentially our new label - our bosses. This is your investment - WE are your venture and we want to do the best job we can at getting you what you want. We want to hear from you and let us know what you think we should be doing.
Risks and challenges
The greatest risks involved in being a musician and a songwriter are the vultures flying overhead. We struggle daily to continue being creative and making art while it seems financially impossible to keep afloat.
If we can kickstart ourselves into funding this album, that gives us the greatest chance ever for survival and a legitimate chance at creating and writing more music in the future.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
