We are currently in the midst of recording our first studio album, a collection of some of our favorite songs we've written over the course of the past five years, as well as a few new, never before released tunes.

The album is fully orchestrated, and features a host of Broadway performers, stars you might know from their roles in shows like Wicked, Next to Normal, Spring Awakening, Shrek, Hairspray, Title of Show, Les Miserables, Sister Act, Spamalot, Everyday Rapture, and many more.

The cost of such an undertaking is pretty significant, from studio time to performer and musician fees to the actual physical production costs, it all adds up.

We need your help to finish the project. It should be an exciting journey, and we'd love to have you on board.

Please help us out and pass the project on to anyone you think might be interested!

UPDATE: We've been blown away by the gracious support of so many of you, which has helped us to surpass our goal in less than 24 hours. So, here's what we're going to do:

If we are able to raise $18,000 before the deadline, we are going to release a 5-song EP in August in addition to the CD we're working on right now. EVERYBODY who has donated $35 or more will receive a digital copy of that EP absolutely free.

That's right, your donation will not only get you the limited edition, signed Out of Our Heads CD, but will also commission the creation of 5 new songs that wouldn't exist without you!

So, keep spreading the word, and let's make this happen!
