We're At a Loss for Words and we're from Hudson, Ohio.  We are an ambient-alternative rock band that feels like we're being called to take our music to the local concert and bar scene.  We love God and are passionate about music because we know that He is the one who has given us our talents in the first place.

We are scheduled to release our first album on March 26, but WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO SO!  While we avoided engineering and studio fees (thanks to our friends at 25th Street Productions at Malone University) we still need to pay for the duplication and distribution costs for the CDs (which is still a hefty sum).

We are also planning a small tour to promote the CD and will put any extra money earned toward that as well!  All told, we are setting our goal at $1000, which is the minimum amount that we need, but anything above that would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks so much for believing in us and helping fund this project!  God bless!
