About

LESS THAN THREE DAYS. AND WE ARE FIRED UP.

Through support from this Kickstarter campaign, The Ascenders will travel to Houston, Tx and record with producer Robbie Seay. Upon the completion of this recording we'll take these songs on the road and spread the love across the nation. When you contribute to this effort you're not just giving money, you're giving directly to the artist, as a fan. There is a deep bond formed and a family is born.

This Kickstarter campaign is ALL OR NOTHING. We raise our goal or we don't get any funding at all. The budget for this project includes recording costs, studio time and musicians, engineers, a producer, mixing, mastering, duplication, design work for the album, and then getting the music to you, our fans. Our goal is to start with five songs. The more funds we raise beyond that first goal, the more songs we will record. This is not our first rodeo—we've had very generous friends through the years help us create demos and other projects (including the above video) that have gotten us to where we are today. This is our resolution to take the next step in our musical journey and begin sharing these stories with people all over the globe. 

Visit theascenders.com to see and hear more, get updates and a FREE digital download of "No More Night".

Special thanks to Chad Madden, Joseph Moore, Jimmy Wallace and Joshua Blankenship for helping us get this campaign up and running!

Risks and challenges

We have been a part of several recordings throughout the years, ours and others, big and small and learned a truckload along the way. Our friends in the music business have been very generous with their wisdom and we've done a ton of research on the front end before jumping into this current endeavor. We have budgeted extra time for this project, to account for potential issues. We want to complete "No More Night" with agility and acumen to minimize pitfalls and time away from the family. You saw our kids. They're REAL cute.
