This E.P. is going to be *FREE (*digital version). That's right. So why give money? Because it's going to cost us a lot more than we have. We have funded the project up to this point, but we still have to pay to get the music mixed & mastered. We also have to pay for the completion of the artwork as well as the video editing.
While we have almost completely tracked the 7 songs that we plan on releasing, there is still work to be done. The first 5 are standard studio tracks. The last 2 are "live in the studio." Along with the audio from these live tracks we are going to release the video from them as well.
The inspiration behind these songs were born out of community. So what better way to finish the project than to get the community (and extended community) involved? If we reach our goal we will be able to do exactly what we have just shared. If we exceed the goal, even better. This will allow us to do a few more things with the music that we would love to do. As well as allow us to start on the next project.
With the heart of community in mind, we would love for our next project to involve the collaborative effort of other musicians and artists. Our dream is about others; about something greater than any one of us could ever do on our own. Our hope is to continue expanding on this vision, including and inspiring others as part of future projects.
Thank you for considering partnering with us to make this dream a possibility.

Risks and challenges
We have wanted to start making this music for about 2 years now. There have been many reasons why we didn't start right away, however we are now ready. We know that involving more people in the equation makes this a much more complex project. If we did everything on our own, there would be fewer risks. However, we feel that the reward would be less as well. The heart behind this whole project is bringing people together to make something greater.
Once we get at least the $5000 we will pay for the services that still have a balance. And from that point we hope to make the music that we've started on even better. If more money is raised we will be able to do even more with the songs. We hope that this process doesn't take more than a month or two. At that point we will give the album away for free when everything is set. It is our hope to spread this idea of community. It is our joy to give away something that so many people have given to.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
