Gray Young is planning to recording our third full-length record and we need your help to do so.

Making an album is in many ways an adventure for us - you don't know where the music will take you or what will happen when attempting to capture it.  We spend a lot of time experimenting with new sounds and techniques in order to capture on tape the ideas we hear in our heads.    

We've always been a very independent band and have funded the vast majority of our previous 2 full-length records and our EP by ourselves.  While our stated goal is $5,000, the production costs will likely be higher - we will be funding a great deal of this record on our own.  Your contributions will help us properly record, release, and promote the new record; anything above will free up money to focus on touring and sharing our music with others.  We greatly appreciate anything you're willing to give - up to and over our goal.

We're very proud of the new songs we've written for this album and we can't wait to share them with you.  Thank you for your support.
