About this project

When we decided to join our voices for the duo WestWend, we had no idea where it would take us.  Having performed over 200 shows in the two years we have been together, we have decided it's now time to meet the demand for a WestWend debut CD. 

We have the songs in place that we are going to record. If you love country music, bluegrass, or Americana, this is going to be a recording you want to get behind and support. It is going to take both of our influences and make the finished product unlike you've ever heard, one that is crosses all of our previous genre barriers. Why? Because we are sticking to our roots. 

We will have some of the best session players in the country, combined with WestWend's own vocal and instrumental talent. It will be produced by Jonathan and Wendy to ensure that sound that the WestWend fans love is satisfying to their ears when the project is complete. 

Your support will go towards:

* Recording, Mixing and Mastering 12 NEW SONGS
* Compensation for our amazing studio musicians
* Album Artwork Design
* Manufacturing and Printing the Album
* Publicity Campaign

We are ready for the new chapter in our lives to begin.  A dream that has been in our hearts for a long time, now you can help become fact. Thank you in advance for being a part of this dream and seeing that it becomes a reality. 

Risks and challenges

A great piece of art takes time to create. We are getting ready to go into the studio and thanks to all of our backers we can now proceed with this crutial part of the process. Some of the best musicians in Nashville, TN will be contributing to our upcoming CD and we have to be flexable with their schedules. We hope to go into the stuido in November 2013. Our goal is to have the project finished by May, 2014.
