About this project

Runaway Dorothy is making a new EP and we need your help to do it.

This band was formed as a side project in a small apartment in Charleston, SC in 2006 with best friends David Parnell and Price Stevens. After a chance encounter with Ryan Adams in the heat of a Charleston summer, they were convinced by Ryan that their new project would be better and more rewarding than their main band. David and Price were subsequently fired from their other band and went into the studio with producer Oran Thornton to track Runaway Dorothy's first album, 'The Arc'. Since its release in 2008, 'The Arc' has gotten great reviews from the press but more importantly, has left it's mark on listeners around the world.

After 2 years of writing and touring, the band(now with a full line-up) is ready to get back into the studio to release their second effort. Unfortunately, recording and touring are expensive for indie bands...and Ryan Adams could not be reached to ask for money. So we are relying on your generosity.

Here is rough breakdown on how the money will be spent:

1000 bones to our producer Oran. This is a super deal as now he is a fancy big time Nashville producer. He will help out with some basic recording and arranging.

1000 bucks for a new computer to edit the album. To keep costs low we will be doing most of the editing ourselves. We did a lot of this for our first album too.

1000 clams to mix the album. We know people so we get 'friend' rates all over the place.

1000 smackers for mastering. This is to make it shine like a diamond.

1000 greenbacks for artwork and pressing the album.

Any left over money will go toward buying Ramen Noodles and Starbucks coffee, the diet of all indie musicians.

Let me end by quoting a homeless dude I met on the subway. ' The more you give, the better we live.'

Thank You Everyone!
