About this project

We've been working hard for almost a year and a half now perfecting a bunch of songs, and we recently started recording them. The problem is, it turns out making a record costs a whole bunch of money — for recording time, mixing time, mastering time, and actually manufacturing CDs. We've already been in the studio for 4 sessions and came out with a bunch of good material, but we still have a lot of work ahead of us. 

If you enjoyed the song in the video, please think about throwing in a few bucks (spoiler: that's not even the best one!). We're more than halfway there, and we really want this project to come to fruition. 

Donate just $10, and you'll be among the first people to hear the album! Donate more, and get one of our many awesome rewards. Most involve our music in some way, but if you have $100 to spare there is some delicious bread in it for you as well. (Sidenote: delicious bread happens to go very well with our music.)

Also, just as a bonus, we're giving everyone who backs this project immediate access to a Friendly Strangers track that's never been released before!

The album is going to be called "Where We Go, We Grow," and although it won't have a squirrel on the cover, we're confident it'll be pretty awesome anyway.
