Five Beats One are a band of long-time friends based in Sonoma County, California and we need your help to produce our debut CD.

Five Beats One are a band of long-time friends based in Sonoma County, California. We write our music together at our rehearsals. Later, Darwin adds the words and melody. The drums were recorded by Judah at his studio and the rest was recorded by Darwin at his. We have put a tremendous amount of effort and care into these songs and are anxious to share them with you. However, we need your help to get them out into the world in a physical format.

That's our pitch.
