First, please enjoy streaming our cover of "Over the Rainbow"! Once we reach the halfway point of our $1,000 goal, we will put a link up for a free download of the song.

We have spent the last year and a half writing songs for this album and working towards what we feel is the identity and sound of the record. "From Love, to Loss, to Living" represents a stage in life where we realize who we are, what we have, what we've had, and we grow from it.

What we've done so far with our own money:

-Written all songs and purchased necessary instruments and equipment.
-Begun recording songs for the album
-Begun design of our website

What we are using the funds for:

-Mixing and mastering of the album
-Physical CD production
-Ordering Joe Neary t-shirts
-Purchasing of domain name and hosting for our website

Any funds over our $1,000 goal will still be put towards our music. We have hopes to order some limited vinyl records of the album, and we would use some towards covering costs of our CD release show and booking shows around the Midwest area.

Please take a look at the donation levels to the right. If you have anything else specific in mind, feel free to email joenearymusic@gmail.com and we can try to work something out.

We'd like to thank every single one of you for visiting this campaign, and express our gratitude if you choose to donate to our project. Please spread the word, and share with all of your friends! We can't wait to share the album with you all!
