ALLEN & BRIGHT 

Hello Friends, Family and Neighbors!

Ho ho ho, Allen & Bright here, bringing you some big news: we're making a stellar Christmas record (literally, a VINYL RECORD!), and we need your help. Ever since we started creating music together, we've dreamt of printing a vinyl record, and what better way to do it than as a Christmas record! The record will feature many of your favorite Christmas classics (as well as a cover of the Griswold Christmas Vacation theme!) featuring Lance on guitar, and Avery on the violin/viola. It's pure Christmas joy embodied in delicious acoustic beauty. We've been hard at work already, but need your help getting the funds together to get these groovy tunes printed to vinyl, and sent to you before Christmas!

Dreaming of our Christmas Music
Dreaming of our Christmas Music

By joining us and supporting this campaign, you're helping us cover the rather hefty hard costs of creating the music (recording/mixing etc.), getting it printed to Vinyl/CD, and finally delivered to your door. The vinyl will make great Christmas gifts for your friends, family and neighbors as well as a gift to yourself! We’ll also print physical CD’s, and release the tracks on all streaming platforms - however you choose to enjoy it. Though, as they say, “Nothing beats the sound of Christmas music on vinyl… or the smell of bacon and coffee...”

Bacon? Coffee? YES! Along with the chance to pre-order our tasty record, we’re also offering special editions of Lance and Avery’s favorite foodie passions, each perfectly paired to go with our Christmas music! Allen & Bright has partnered with Nashville coffee roaster Just Love Coffee to create a specially curated blend called “Allen & Bright’s Not-So Silent Night.” Drink this, and you’re guaranteed to be awake when Santa comes sliding down that chimney!

Yummy Coffee! You know you want some!

We’re also working with the legendary Benton’s Smoky Mountain Country Hams, who is making us reindeer bacon!… Kidding: it will be a full pound of their famous original hickory smoked bacon, i.e. edible gold. We eat tons of this when recording, as we believe the tastiness seeps into the music... Also, it tastes like Christmas in heaven (mic drop). Try it out yourself! There is no better bacon on the planet, and no better way to enjoy it than with Allen & Bright’s new Christmas record and a cup of our speciality coffee.

Hickory smoked, southern goodness!

So what’s in it for you? Incredible music, coffee, and bacon, and our undying love and appreciation. For our supporters, we’ll keep you regularly updated with exclusive inside content of the recording process, as well as the manufacturing process of the vinyl. We’re making our way through the recording process now, and it’s sounding incredible. We hope you’ll join us on this journey, and WE CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO HEAR THIS MUSIC!


With love, Allen & Bright

P.S. If you would like a custom reward combo that's not listed (e.g. 12 vinyls, 30 bags of coffee, and 50 lbs. of bacon), just shoot us an email at allenandbright@gmail.com, and we'd be happy to put together a custom order for you. 

P.P.S. Here's a link to a playlist of our music, if you haven't already heard what we've been creating. Give us a follow on Spotify while you're there!
