FULLY FUNDED!!! (but not finished)
You guys are truly incredible. It only took two weeks to hit our goal of $12,000...
When we started getting the kickstarter campaign ready we asked our fans what they wanted for the new album and the one thing we heard the most was, VINYL! We loved the idea but after looking into it it just seemed outside of our budget... BUT NOW... we've got 6 days left and we think if we can get up to $15,000 (just $2,400 more) we would be able to do a short run! Our plan is to give anyone who backed the kickstarter first dibs and a better price. Then whatever is left over will go to our webstore and on tour for anyone else. Sound like a plan? Let's keep this thing going! Thanks again for being a part of what we're doing. We feel very blessed.

LOUD HARP is in the studio!
As many of you know, our first album happened kind of spontaneously. In the middle of a season of doubt and disappointment, we holed up in a studio for a weekend, praying and worshiping together. During those three days we felt like we were gifted the songs that became our debut album. And now, exactly a year after releasing that album, and after giving away over 26,000 copies of the album, playing all over the country and receiving countless emails telling us how the album has helped people through some really rough times, we feel like we're supposed to do it all again - BUT THIS TIME WE'RE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP.
Making an album is expensive and time consuming and without the support of a label all those costs fall to us. That's where you can help - by pre-ordering the record and/or any of our other great perks, you help us AND you get great stuff in return. We've got CD's, T-Shirts, Polaroids, Artwork, Concerts and Videos!!! You'll definitely be able to find something you'll like.
The other thing you can do to help is spread the word. You know people that we don't, and the more people know about this project the better our chances are to meet our goal. When we made the record we felt pretty vulnerable, and then to exaggerate that feeling, we gave it away… to a lot of people. The part we didn't expect is the response we got in return. So many of you have let us in to your lives over the past year, sharing stories of hard times turned to redemption and hope. It really feels like we're on an adventure together. So in the same way that you took ownership of the songs on the last record we invite you take ownership of this new set of songs - together we can can bring hope to many more people.
About The New Record
This past Winter, totally separate of one another, we started learning about a Psalmist named Asaph. The more we learned, the more we found ourselves identifying with him. The Psalms of Asaph were written out of a place of disappointment and brokenness and above all else he longed for the people of God to be reawaken to the majesty, glory and power of God in worship.
So in February 2013, while touring the northwest in a Subaru, we started reading the Psalms of Asaph over and over and over. We found they carried a powerful and at times brooding message that was dead-set on overwhelming and inspiring us into to a deeper nearness with God. Needless to say, we were wrecked. These Psalms (along with a few others) have become the backbone of this next record. Our prayer is that these songs will point us back to God, allow us to see our need for him and let us worship in whatever season we're in.
To complete the album we need to raise a total of $12,000 in 21 days! The money breaks down like this...
- $7,800 - Recording Costs (Studio, Musicians, Mixing, Mastering)
- $1,200 - Album Artwork
- $1,500 - First run of 1,000 CD's
- $900 - Kickstarter Fees
- $600 - Rewards (T-Shirts, Photography, Etc)
As most of you know, with Kickstarter, it is all or nothing. If we're not able to raise ALL $12,000 we won't get any of the money (and all the annoying Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts will be in vain). If we are able to raise $15,000 we will be able to do a run of VINYL and anyone who donates on Kickstarter will be able to buy the Vinyl at a Kickstarter special price!
MILESTONES | Once we raise...
- $4,000 - We will reveal the new album's artwork/cover *** DONE
- $8,000 - We will post an acoustic one take video of one of the new songs *** DONE
- $12,000 - FULLY FUNDED! You get your perks!
Thanks so much for reading this and considering this project. We honestly can't do it without you.
