About

Our Story

Hi, I'm Mache. I want to help songwriters connect with their fans so last summer I teamed up with film-makers and an architect to create Cabin Tapes, a web-series that features talented emerging songwriters in an unexpected New York City setting - a cabin. 

We wanted to make every part of the listeners experience something worth talking about. The series was filmed in a cabin behind a brownstone in Brooklyn designed and built by architect Nicholas Hunt. The songs were recorded with high quality microphones to a vintage reel to reel tape recorder, the almighty Teac A-3340, and later mixed in a professional studio using analog gear to stay true to the original sound.

 As a way to celebrate the series we are pressing a limited run of 500 deluxe records on clear vinyl. The album includes:

  • 11 songs featured on the Cabin Tapes
  • including 4 previously unreleased songs
  • a card-stock insert with artwork, lyrics & photographs

Why Kickstarter...

We have come a long way from the initial idea for Cabin Tapes, and we now have a series of beautifully filmed episodes. The cabin was built, artists were booked, a film crew hired and the audio mixed.

Now we need your help to bring Cabin Tapes to vinyl and to your living room. Kickstarter feels like the best platform for our fans to make an immediate impact on the outcome of our project. It's the best way for us to stay in touch and share updates along the way as we work towards the record release.

Your investment in our Kickstarter Campaign will go directly toward the following finishing touches on the album "Cabin Tapes: Volume One": 

  • Mastering (Vinyl & Digital) 
  • Reproduction & Packaging 
  • Art Design 
  • Distribution 
  • Marketing & Promotion
  • Album Release Party

Best of all you will be supporting incredible songwriters!

A Brief History of the Cabin

The web-series took place in a cabin behind a brownstone in Brooklyn. The cabin, designed & built by architect Nicholas Hunt was a place of refuge from the city bustle.

The Setting for Cabin Tapes
The Setting for Cabin Tapes

“The point of the project for me was an escape from the city—both in terms of building it and hanging out in it, inhabiting it” -Nicholas Hunt for Dwell Magazine

Throughout the series, the cabin is dismantled changing the setting for each video. The project becomes time based art as each episode reveals the cabin in a different state. The painted wood walls turn to a wood frame and eventually an open yard where the cabin once stood. These varying conditions add a new dimension to every song.

Here is a video of Victoria Reed performing just after the cabin was removed.
