✨ What a journey we have had..

Originally starting out as Matt Montez, the musical journey naturally evolved into a beautiful duo. And so River Roots was born. En capturing the strong, grounding Earth elements as well as the flowing Water elements.  

So now we desperately need to RECORD and RELEASE an album. We are more than ready and feel it is super important right now with the name change.  

As most of you know we love to travel and music has been the magical medicine that has accompanied our journey. Bringing love, light, dancing, smiles and friendships into our lives and those we meet along the way. We are passionate about bringing positive change to the world, delivering conscious uplifting mind opening music from the heart.

We feel that right now more than ever, our music needs to be out there for the world.    

An album costs a lot of money to put together...
Studio time, Mixing, Mastering, CD Pressing, Session Musicians, Album artwork/graphic design, PR Campaign. 
In TOTAL it will cost around £10000!! So we need as much help as possible to reach our target :)

As a breakdown, if we achieve:
£3000 = release our 10 track album.
£4000 = release our 10 track album with session musicians (drums, bass etc).
£5000 = release our 14 track album with all instruments.
£7500 = release our 14 track album with all instruments and have a small PR campaign.
£10000 = release our 14 track album with all instruments and have a PR and radio play campaign.

We are so excited for this project... We would love to share photos and videos of our progress throughout the recording journey, so you can see the development with your own eyes, and really feel apart of it.

Let's make it happen! We can't create this album without your help. 

Thank you so much for supporting us :)

Matt and Gem  ~ River Roots ~

 

 

Risks and challenges

The main challenge we face is finding the funds to continue our passion. For this Album, we have put the ground work in already, we now need help to make this a reality. That's where you come in. Depending on the funds we receive, depends on how deep we can fully throw ourselves into the creation of this album.
