We are Meg Anderson and Jeremy Cox and we are asking for help in the next stage of our sonic project.

We have each had a rich and beautiful relationship with music. Jeremy's background and education has focused on drumset improvisation with a strong emphasis in jazz. He has also played with bluegrass, indie rap, folk, and renegade marching bands. Though often known as a dancer, Meg has been performing as a vocalist since age ten. Her compositions are influenced by her training in classical choral music as well as her natural gravitation toward syncopated rhythms.

The convergence of our styles has generated a unique sound which we will funnel it into dreambody, a concept album that tells a non-linear story. Using the theme of dreams and dreaming as the seed we will blend text with lyrics, sounds with music, and sense with nonsense.

Over the years, we've created a solid network of professional musicians and sound engineers all over the country. Over the past few months we've made arrangements to collaborate and record with those that resonate with this project, now we need the gas money to get to them as well as money to print copies of the album.

Our three month tour includes: Knoxville, Nashville, Bloomington, Ann Arbor, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, San Fransisco and ends January 1st, 2011 in San Diego.

We appreciate your contribution and look forward to sharing... everything.
