Help 240 North record and release their debut album!

UPDATE (10/9/12)- AS A SPECIAL REWARD, EVERYONE WHO PLEDGES AT LEAST $1 WILL RECEIVE A DIGITAL COPY (MP3s) OF THE ALBUM (AS LONG AS WE HIT OUR GOAL)!

240 North started out in 2009 as a group of guys writing original rock music, practicing twice a week in a basement in Buffalo, NY.  Today, 240 North has elevated its status to that of being a group of guys writing original rock music, practicing twice a week in a renovated loft above a garage in Buffalo, NY.  Oh how things change in such a few short years.

During those years, we've made our way primarily as a live band - having the privilege of playing with many great local and touring bands.  We have had the opportunity to donate our services to many worthwhile benefits that have helped to raise money for important local and national causes, and we have even had the great opportunity to play some free shows for our area servicemen and women.  We've done just about everything except release an album.  Well, all that is about to change!

240 North is in the process of recording its first album!  The band has booked time at Chilliam Studios and will be working with a talented engineer during the end of September and beginning of October 2012.  Each individual member of the band has personally committed funds to the recording process - but we are calling on you to help complete the project!

Just as 240 North has donated its services throughout the years, the band is now calling upon its friends, fans, family members, and the local music community for help.  The costs associated with creating and releasing an album are very high.  Your donation will cover the costs associated with mixing and mastering, CD replication, Digipak design and printing, and the costs of making music available digitally online.

As a thank you for your generosity, 240 North has put together some great reward packages for your donation.  Rewards such as free MP3s, pre-release hard copies of the album signed by the band, limited edition T-shirts, free tickets to the CD release party, and even a private live performance by 240 North are available!

Each member of 240 North (Trevor, Steve, Michael, and JW) sincerely thank you in advance for helping to make this project a success.  We are truly lucky to have such great fans, friends, family members, and to be part of such a vibrant and supportive local music community in Buffalo, NY!
