About

Aloha World!

After three years of trials and tribulations, my Alternative Rock band, Mantra, is finally at the end of the tracking for our first full length album! But we need your help to finish it.

We felt it vitally important to make sure that this first album be completely independently tracked, produced, engineered, and funded. It will just take this one more piece of equipment to finish the mastering process, and give us the room to move on to newer, better music!

With this last piece squared away, Mantra will pledge to have the album mixed down and ready for digital download by the time of our recently announced Japan/Okinawa tour during late August of this year. Physical copies will be out at a later date. Check out our first video song for an example of our music! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnx9YYN2pLQ

As struggling musicians, the second chunk of our goal amount will go directly towards purchasing our plane tickets to Japan/Okinawa and back. We already have the following tour dates booked:
8/15 @ The Hideaway in Koza, Okinawa
8/16 @ 7th Heaven in Koza, Okinawa
8/19 @ HRC Tokyo, Roppongi
8/22 @ HRC Osaka

Mahalo, and Thank You for your time, consideration, and donation!

Risks and challenges

-The obvious and most pertinent risk is that we do not finish the recording and mixing the album in the allotted time. Having a band of professional musicians has it's goods and bads; One bad being that we are incredibly busy with strange schedules.

This risk can be alleviated simply by stating, that the success of this Kickstarter will be my main job for this summer. After my first school year as a full-time high school music teacher, I finally qualify for summer vacation pay. So I will literally be pouring most of my professional time and passion, as well as bass player/recording engineer Matthew Cody Love, into making this album and this tour work!
