Cole & The Thornes' debut album, "Map Maker"

$6,700

117

Dear Soulshine Searchers!

We are Cole & The Thornes, and we are in the process of recording our very first album, “Map Maker”. With an understanding of what it means to be in the present moment, we represent a voice of positivity, growth and empowerment. Just as the spider is to its web, “Map Maker” carries the idea that we create and build our own world and shape our own reality. We give direction, make paths for ourselves, and manifest what we want and need in life, making us the Map Maker of our own world.

We have already begun the delicate journey into the studio with Jake Flemming at FTP Productions in Bozeman, Montana, but we still have a long ways to go.  This process needs to be nurtured and given the time and love it deserves. With that being said we do not have an estimated time for release quite yet. What is known is that there will be a funky CD release party involving some serious dancing once it is finished. We will, however, keep you posted on our progress by sharing photos and short video clips as we go.

Once we have professional recordings, we will be able to take our music to the next level. Our goals are to tour, play more music festivals, make music videos, and expand our musical community revolved around positive change and the love of artistic creation. 

This pledge is just the beginning of what our project really needs, but the funds will go towards:

  • studio time
  • mixing & mastering
  • album artwork
  • marketing
  • disc manufacturing
  • distribution

Help us manifest our dreams into reality, become a Map Maker!

Thank You, we appreciate You!

- Cole, Jordan, Aaron, Jelani, Andy, Dan, and Matt

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge will be the timing and promotion of everything to be sure we get the funds to order CDs for the release party. Another challenge will be to successfully produce and distribute the contributor rewards to all of you who have earned them. This is our top priority, and we are working our hardest to get everything finished in a timely manner.
