We are COOKIE TONGUE, a theatrical, expectation-defying freak-folk duo based in Brooklyn, NY. We are in the midst of creating our third album - DREAM SEED CEREMONIES. With your support we will be able to finish the recording process, mixing, mastering and printing on Vinyl and CD.
Originally bore by visual/performance artist and musician Omer Gal in 2011 in San Francisco, Cookie Tongue has evolved over time with its current iteration now joined by multi-instrumentalist and ritual artist/dancer Jacquelyn Marie Shannon. Cookie Tongue “transcends expectations for a musical performance” with incantatory songs brought further to life in performance with theatre, puppetry, dance, poetry, costume and animation. We seek to create this same “world-making,” “transportive,” "beyond" quality of our performances in the sound experience of our new record, DREAM SEED CEREMONIES.
"Cookie Tongue is not of this realm. Current music trends have paved over their world. Cookie Tongue reaches out, grabs a hand and pulls us to hear."
As we've been hard at work over the last year playing shows, touring, and writing new songs, we feel profoundly grateful for all of you who have continually supported us by coming to shows, buying our music, sharing a bill, or spreading the word. We are lucky to have a community of friends, family, listeners, witnesses, and fellow art-and-magic-makers-and-defenders out there who encourage and inspire our work and our growth. We thank you in advance for your support now so that we can keep this good thing going in a world that continues to need music, art and magic now more than ever.
Our budget includes:
- Recording with Brian Speaker, the amazing engineer who recorded some of our favorite NY anti-folk friends, including Jeffrey Lewis, Pinc Louds and more!
- Professional mixing and mastering
- Physical production of vinyl LPs, CDs, album art and lyric books
- Digital distribution (Apple Music, Spotify; etc)
If we exceed our funding goal, additional funds will help pay for:
- Music video production
- Hiring a publicist to assist with album release promotion
- Touring support and expenses
We’ve conjured a wide array of whimsical rewards, hand-made for your liking at every level of support from pre-ordering the album to commissioning one-of-a-kind artwork and more. Scroll down to check them out and consider supporting in whatever way you are able.
Every cookie crumble counts.

Update(April 30th) STRETCH GOAL
Thank you all we reached our Goal!
There is 10 hours to go so we decided, why not, lets try for a stretch goal.
If we get to $5500 we will make a music video for one of the songs on "Dream Seed Ceremonies".
If we accomplish this almost impossible feat we will put every single one of your names in the credits of the music video.
Risks and challenges
There's always a tiny risk that the project could be delayed due to sickness, drama within the band and other apocalyptic causes unforeseen. But Omer managed to make the previous 2 Cookie Tongue albums come to life so third time is easy as cookie tongue pie!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
