Funded!

This project was successfully funded on March 3, 2014.

A backing band brings new americana energy to the fine pickin' and timeless songwriting of Richie Reinholdt & Britt Arnesen.

About this project

While Britchy is primarily an acoustic folk duo, sometimes it's fun to get friends together and create a fuller sound in the studio. We envisioned a lightly electrified americana record and recruited a great team to help us achieve it, including Tom Wolverton, Larry Chung, Chad Fadely, Andy Dunnigan, Ellie Nuño, Bryan Daste and Trevor Rogers (of the Clumsy Lovers).

We ask your support to pay the folks who played with us and to fund replication of the CDs that will play our all-original music.

We used the best digital technology to produce our music, and it will be available online, but we want to release a CD too. Many of our fans still listen to albums on CD. We both do! It takes a big wad of cash to order CDs, so please help us out.

We'd like to let the music speak for itself. If you didn't get to see the video we made, then please visit our website to hear a sample of Every Heartache. But don't forget to come back here and pre-order our new record by backing our project. All pledges over $8 come with two tickets to our CD release concert, time and location TBA. The concert will either be streamed or recorded for download so you don't have to be in Missoula to attend!

Cheers! And thank you.

Risks and challenges

Luckily, we've already finished the hardest parts: writing, arranging, and recording the music. I've already designed the graphics for our eco-friendly CD packaging, and the only piece missing is the funding. Once our project is funded, we'll be able to order our CDs online. Both Richie and I have put out many albums and are confident we can execute this process effectively.
