Help get Little Ugly back into the studio to finish their upcoming EP. Thank you all for your continued support of the CT music scene!

Dear friends,
There comes a moment in a band’s career when their music needs to be spread far and wide.  Now is that moment for Little Ugly, and with your help, it won’t be missed!
This new EP is the biggest undertaking we have ever attempted.  With our first EP, we spent just one day holed-up in a studio recording the instruments live. This time, we will be in the studio for an extended period of time, which will enable us to create a marketable, solid album that we can be proud of, and you won’t want to stop listening to it!
You can trust that we will put this new EP to good use.  Our current single, which we spent all of our money on, is being played on Radio 104.1 and WESU 88.1.  You can download it for free here: http://littleugly.bandcamp.com/track/and-we-saidThis momentum is exciting, but without new recordings, we fear that it could be lost.
We’ve also demonstrated a dedication to the hard work it takes to make a band successful, and this is most evident in our partnership with the CT music scene.   We have played over 300 shows at venues such as The Bushnell, Infinity Hall, The Kate, Arch St. Tavern, and Black Eyed Sally’s.  In addition, we have played countless benefits across the state to help CT residents and local businesses.  CT has rewarded this hard work with multiple awards and nominations that we are extremely honored to have received, such as "Best Rock Band" from Hartford Advocate 2011, "Best Musician/Band" from Hartford Magazine 2012, and our nomination for "Best Band" and "Best Rock Band" at the first ever CT Music Awards, which was a blast performing at.  
This all leads to now- this moment in time when we are most ready to take this show on the road!  Before we can do this, we need to record this EP.  We will need money to rent the studio, pay the producer, print copies, and market the album.  According to our math, $3,500 is exactly what we need to pay these bills.  We have the BEST songs that we have ever written, but to play these songs across this great nation of ours, we need your help.  If you can help, you will be rewarded.  Just to the right of this page, you can see that we have lined up some interesting rewards, so take a peek as you decide if you can help us out.
We have only 35 days to raise this money, so we need your immediate help!   It doesn’t matter how big or small your contribution is- everything helps!  Please text, blog, tweet, facebook, and email your friends and family and invite them to help us out, either with a donation or by continuing to spread this Kickstarter.
Thank you for all the love and support.  Nothing we have accomplished so far could have been done without all of you, the best and most supportive fans ever.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risks and challenges of making this EP will be the same every musician/band encounters when going into the studio.

Making sure everyone's schedules align.
Making sure every song/part is exactly how we envision it.
Recording/Mixing/Mastering in a timely fashion.
Keeping spirits high and having fun!

We are a very experienced band and have the advantage of knowing exactly what we want out of the studio before we even head in. There may be bumps in the road but we will use them to only take this EP to a higher level. With your help, WE WILL SUCCEED!!!

THANK YOU ALL!!!

FAQ

  • We assume this is in case the person pledging wishes to have a half hour lesson with two different members of the group. In short, yes this is fine. We are willing to do this but must warn that the more members you take a lesson with the more schedules you have to work around. It shouldn't be a problem at all but we just want to make sure everyone is aware. Thanks for the great question!
