Give us a little back story...

We have been playing with each other back and forth, sharing the stage for the last 4 years ever since we met each other at a battle of the bands in the fall of 2012, it was a connection that we didn't know would lead us to where we are now.

Gabe & Thea's first time playing together at our favorite little pizza joint!

A lot of people know us as separate musicians, but we are coming together with full force to launch FUTURE STUFF. We have been writing music that is not made for a pop station but music that comes from our hearts, our experiences and our appreciation and respect for each other and all the people that have supported us throughout the years. We can't wait for you guys to hear a sample of what we have in store through this EP.

By helping us out with this first big project in our adventure you are helping us launch what we hope to be a long musical career. This EP will help us get our music out to stations and set up tours for the summer, opening up bigger opportunities and progressing us to a level that we hope to reach.

We are heading down to Nashville to record at Center Street Studios where we will Record, Mix & Master. Then we send the files to Madison, WI to print and create merch.

Center Street!

Asking for help is something neither of us are good at doing, so our goal through this Kickstarter is to raise a little bit of extra money to help with recording, merchandise, and travel costs - Thats why we are excited to offer some awesome rewards such as shirts, stickers, and vinyl! Every pledge and every social media share helps us out.

We will have sweet 7in Vinyl printed locally!

We are working so hard to make this something that everyone will like and be able to relate to, and most of all jam to!

A very sincere thank you for your time and constant support. We love supporting local artists and helping them out and we hope you will spread the word as well!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT <3

Risks and challenges

We have thoroughly thought through this and all of the scenarios to make sure that we can fulfill every reward. We understand that there will always be obstacles with cost, weather, delays and all the unexpected things of life that could come up, but we are taking all of it as a learning experience and are incredibly eager to get this project off the ground and share it with YOU! :)
This is at a time in both of our lives where we have to start making big decisions and commitments. So time management becomes our biggest challenge, but this Kickstarter and our motivation will help whip us into shape! who needs sleep?!
