The Aspirations

For the love of what we do and at the request of enthusiastic fans, we are currently working in the studio laying down track after track in an effort to complete our long awaited debut album entitled “New Beginnings”. The goal is to package the album without delay sometime in late January or early February. Along with the completion of “New Beginnings”, we will reveal our fresh new logo on guys and gals Tee’s, stickers and wrist bands. 2015 will bring new tunes and new threads for the best fans on the planet.

The Strategy

The Tunes - We are nearly halfway through the recording process and we plan to finish the last track by the end of December 2014, leaving time for our Master Mixer Drummer Jose Santana to finalize the finished product by early January. Once complete, the tracks will be sent out for duplication and will be ready to be listened to by late January or early February.

The Threads - T shirts, stickers and more will be ordered as soon as the campaign has funded. They will be available in January.

The Reason

Timing is everything and currency influences time. With pledges from our fans, the time for “New Beginnings” will be now. There will be no more waiting for the songs you love and the performances you look forward to seeing. And to show our gratitude we are offering some very unique, one of a kind rewards for those who are willing to lay down their hard earned cash. We know our fans are a hardworking, dedicated, and loyal bunch. Because of this there will be no shortage of effort on our part to deliver the goods. 

Risks and challenges

Our greatest challenge is completing the album by the end of December. To overcome this challenge, we have established a recording schedule that we revisit each week to ensure each member is on track to complete their parts for each song.
