These original songs have a friendly Memphis soul vibe that we LOVE. And we hope you will love them too.

Hello, welcome to the The Boundary Birds Kickstarter page. Please check out our great rewards, custom songs and performances and of course, copies of the record are listed there! In a little nutshell, The Boundary Birds are singer-songwriter DeBlois Milledge and drummer Danny Campbell.....and our crew of genius creative partners (frequently Dave Curtis, James East, Daryl Johnson, Billy Thompson, Rand Anderson and Paul Kamanski, other times including Buffalo Brown, Mike Cravens, David Carano, Tim Pacheco, and many others too numerous to name but beloved to us).  DeBlois is in charge of the lyrics and the melody and being nice to people, Danny is in charge of The Groove, and co-ordinating and encouraging the musicians, and all the technical studio stuff, which he does by knowing talented engineers (Keith Gretlien, Doug Watson) and by keeping a quiver of microphones that are more expensive than a car. We both share the responsibility of loving these songs into creation.  With your help and support, our friends, fans, and family, we have released many albums. We know that you have been there for us as we walked this creative path and that you want us to keep on sluggin' it out, reaching for our dreams. We love you, and we feel you love us too, please help us across the finish line of another CD. This group of songs is a Memphis Soul Happy Song collection. It features Rockabye, Superhero, and The Way I Live, which are some of our favorites that were recorded in earlier releases, and have been re-recorded here to express the ways in which the band has grown the songs through years of touring.  This album will also feature some brand new songs including (but not limited to) Try Not To Call, Little Dragon, Celebrate, Opposites, and Avalon. The general sound is Memphis- Soul and Folk-Pop in a wonderful DeBlois-y kind of way.  

Thank you for reading about this project and helping it on its way!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We think the greatest challenge is to create something that will lead us right up to the next lilly pad, so we can jump on it and carry on our journey! We hope to make a record that we are extremely proud of and to share our experience of making it with you, and to send it out to everyone we know.

We already have the basic tracks laid for this recording project. We have carefully researched and understand the costs of Mixing, Mastering, Manufacturing, and Promoting. We also calculated the processing fees and shipping costs for the prizes we have offered.

We believe that we can complete this project with $4000 because we have a trusted team built on good relationships with professional people in every quarter: an accomplished Producer, Engineer, Art Director, Printing company.... and of course, creative and industrious Musicians!

We feel ever encouraged by our community to go forth and write songs, and sing them too. We want to become an example and an inspiration to creative people everywhere (that's all of us) to dream gigantic. And we'll tell them that you made it all possible.
