Who are we?
We are LEGS, a Brooklyn based indie dance band, formed in April 2013 by lead singer Tito Ramsey, his brother Jack Ramsey, Ecuadorian brothers Juan Miguel Marin and Herman Marin, and our brother at heart Charles Larson.
What are we doing?
We are recording our first full-length album to be released internationally in September 2014!
LEGS is a band that makes music for the body.
HOW WILL LEGS MAKE YOU FEEL? LEGS is 100% guaranteed to make you feel athletic, kinetic, sexy, benevolent, cosmopolitan, declamatory, exotic, extroverted, hungry, naive, nocturnal, and possibly wry. Legs is considered highly absorbent, effervescent, warm and slightly funky. Legs comes on strong and always leaves you satisfied.
POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: Listening to LEGS may potentially produce sweaty palms, deflation of ego, complete and absolute rapture, admiration for friends, dry mouth, extreme thirst, neglection of responsibility, and spontaneous bodily eruptions. Listening to LEGS may also result in adult companionship. LEGS is not responsible for any negative side effects that may occur.

Recording our 1st full-length album!
The album you are helping to create will feature songs we have written over the last year in small rehearsal spaces scattered all over Brooklyn. We have put every ounce of energy we have into making this music, and we can't wait to share it with you!
We are excited to record the album with Nick Stumpf, an incredible engineer who is already well established in the music industry. Nick has worked with Caveman, Escort, Sacred Spirits, among other amazing bands, and recently appeared on Conan O'Brian with Hamilton Leithauser! His skills as an engineer and his extensive experience will help us to make the best record possible, and his connections in the music industry will be invaluable as we begin sending this record out into the world.
The album will be recorded at GRABA Studios in Quito, Ecuador where the Marin brothers are from. The self imposed released date for the album is September 2014!

Risks and challenges
If the Kickstarter campaign is funded, the album WILL be created. Most of the leg work has already been done - the music has been written, we've chosen our producer, the recording studio, the time, and the place. Recording in Quito will help us save on costs, as we will be able to book a professional recording studio with all the best equipment for a fraction of what it would cost in New York. We have also carefully budgeted all of our other expenses, including costs to produce t-shirts, posters, vinyl, and other incentives.
We have almost all the pieces put together, we just need you to help us put in the last piece to bring our project to life!
With your help, we can bring all of our hard work to fruition and take this important step towards launching our careers as musicians. How far we go is up to you. The larger our community, the more support we have, the more ways we have to connect with the world.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
