(in case you missed it there's a video above)

We could go on and on about philosophy, taste in music, unbridled joy, crippling depression and everything in between in an attempt to sell you on "who we are".  But instead, we thought it would make more sense to play you some music and let you decide for yourself (play video above).  But first, a little bit about the new project...

It's been three years since Today I Found Happy, and everything has changed.  "When Ledge is Home" features 10 brand new tracks and includes guest appearances by Junk Science and Blue Sky Black Death.

A PR firm that represents a multitude of talented independent artists has confirmed interest in promoting "When Ledge is Home."  Their roster is impressive, but small - so the honor is not only amazing, but truly humbling.  Simply put - we need your help to make this happen.  While their work is superb, the cost of keeping this PR firm on team BPB for a few months is more than we can afford on our "starving artist" budget.  This campaign is also to help cover costs including a music video and cd production.  The $6K will certainly not cover everything, but it will get us well on our way in making this all happen.

We see this as a once in a lifetime opportunity... and those of you that know us know that asking for money is not an easy thing for us to do.  Believe us, this is an exception that we never thought would exist... and we just can't live with the possibility of not pursuing it to the fullest.  Any donation is truly, truly, TRULY appreciated, as we realize that pockets are just as tight in every other household.  We want to thank everyone in advance just for taking the time to look at this page.  If you like what you hear, please pass this along to anyone that might be interested. 

Peace and Love from BPB
