This will be our 3rd real studio album and we are finally at a point where we want to go BIG or go HOME. Luckily, "Home" is a wonderful thing too. We've been working really hard these past 8 years at building our music and our sound into something we are really proud of. We want to record it in a form that truly represents us in the best way possible. This is what your money will go towards:
Bear Creek Studio has been creating music since 1977. The studio itself is a converted turn-of-the-century barn situated on a 10-acre horse farm just north of Seattle, WA. It's truly a peaceful and inspiring place, which is so our vibe. We'll be working with Ryan Hadlock, who is the son of the man who started the family run studio. The album he produced for The Lumineers was recently nominated for a Grammy. They happen to be buddies of ours and highly recommended Ryan's work, so that's good. As you can imagine, this beautiful studio isn't cheap and we plan on recording for 21 days. We'll stay there on the weekends and continue to "BE" in the music. We also plan on paying our good friends to lay down their skills on this record. Then we will of course master these tracks, which is not included in the studio price. Then the reproduction of the albums and Vinyl is added to list of costs. We know in the end, it will be so worth it!
After the album is complete, we plan to hire our publicist to run a radio, press, and everything we can campaign, to get this album to as many ears as possible.
Risks and challenges
This is the biggest step we've taken so far, we hope that it takes us to some new territory. We realize that this is a big chunk of money to ask for, but we humbly ask you to stand behind us and give us the push that's needed to take this leap of faith into this crazy business called "music."
After we are done recording, it takes time to actually hold the album in your hands, after we hold it, it may take a long time until you, our friends, family and fans, can hold it. We plan to shop this record to some labels and see if there is a new team that wants to join ours and help us spread this music as far as we can. We ask that you be patient for this album and know that we are being strategic and going to go with our best option when releasing it to YOU.
Thank you in advance for all your support always and forever!
