Two and a half years in the making, and it is finally finished! The sophomore follow-up to our debut album, is a carefully crafted five song EP that sonically, and thematically achieves what The Digital Wild has always sought out to do. To constantly challenge ourselves in expanding past our constrictive comfort zones. To travel freely between borderless genres. To responsibly deliver a message of hope and truth, reflection and understanding, inclusion and growth. To celebrate in the art we create, and that of our peers. To inspire and be inspired. To share this all with whomever's ears it may reach, and whomever's heart may need it most. The need to create is a slow pressure that builds inside you. It is a natural response to the human condition. A need to reflect, release, and connect with the world around us. Only the luckiest of artists may be able to whole heartedly say that a piece of their work so closely defines and captures a specific moment in their life. A perfectly balanced time capsule containing all of its contributors hopes, fears, and dreams. These songs are of us, each an appendage, organ, limb, or digit in what we hope to be a long career of creating a diverse, full body of work.

With this new album in hand, we are so excited to say that it’s now time to send it off into the world! This next step involves you. We are asking for your support in whatever way you can give it. This campaign will allow our friends, fans, and families to invest in how far this release will reach. Funds gathered will employ a team of professionals who specialize in promotion, and distribution. It will also aid in our sustainability as touring musicians, allowing us to create more merchandise to sell on the road, putting gas in our tanks, and putting more tour dates on our calendars. No doubt that even before we received your generous support, we always found the time and energy to create and share our music. We are very thankful for how far that has gotten us, but now we are asking you to help us reach even higher. Your donation will not only be met with our sincerest thanks, but also a corresponding gift of music, merchandise, or special experience. 

 

Risks and challenges

When a musical group is in the early stages of success, it takes a lot of communication and organization between its members to overcome the challenges of balancing day jobs, practice schedules, concerts, and daily lives. There are plenty of tasks to delegate, sites to update, emails to answer, decisions to make. These demands can be overwhelming, and compete directly with creative time and energy. So early on, we had to learn to work as a team on all fronts. Each member would wear as many hats as needed to get the job done. Over time we joined forces with Loophole Management, a team with an outstanding track record, who believes in us as much as we trust them to speak on our behalf. This team has allowed us to ease up on the reins and focus more of our energy into creating our art without distraction or fear of the business side of things bleeding into it.

Once we have reached our financial goal from this campaign, we will have all the tools needed to implement our plans. Any challenge we may face along the way will be dealt with a willingness to adapt. Our goal is not a destination, it’s a direction. The reward for us is in the creating, the sharing, and the connecting. Although some challenges may be new, we trust in the advice and counsel of not only our management team, but the amazing network of seasoned music industry mentors that we’ve met along the way. We can draw from the huge cache of knowledge and experience that they happily offer up, and we gratefully receive. With such a strong support team on our side, we believe that no challenge is too great.
