Hey everyone, we are making a NEW album!  We feel these new tunes that we want to record and share with you, are some of the best we have ever written. WE WANT YOU TO BE A PART! To make this album happen we need to raise at least $25,000...no big deal, right?!?!

THE PLAN                    

Last year, we parted ways with our record label and have since been independent. Which means we have more freedom in how/what we write! And with the help of our booking agency, management, and most importantly our fans we have been able to move forward. This is where you join in!

We know this is not a small amount but we want this to be the best record we have ever made musically and lyrically. We have been working on music that is inspired by our faith and comes from our hearts in hopes to make a connection with the hearts of the listener. 

Over the years, we have built relationships with some key people in our industry and have asked them for their expertise in recording this new album. We are needing at least $25,000 to cover production, mixing, and mastering. Any funds exceeding 25k will be used to make this record that much BETTER

We believe that these new songs have incredible potential to bring hope and life. We know God has put these songs in us for this purpose. We wanna thank everyone who has supported our music by coming to our shows, buying our albums, retweeting, and sharing posts on all social media outlets.  Honestly, we wouldn't be who we are without you. Please share this with your friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors...every human being! Let's DO this!

Risks and challenges

We feel that the biggest challenge that we may face are due to our location. We live in South Texas and the producers and studios we plan to work with are in Nashville,TN. With the cost of gasoline rising we find it is difficult to make a 14-hr. drive to Nashville if we don't have concerts that route to and from.

One thing that really helps us are the messages we receive from our fans/friends. Knowing that they are listening and being moved by our music keeps us motivated through the long drives and sleepless nights. So friends, please continue to strengthen our spirits by listening, messaging, and praying for us while we travel!
