About this project
Who We Are and What We're Doing
We are Pioneers! O Pioneers! We're a 3-piece indie rock band from Pensacola, FL. We've been playing shows and dreaming of finishing our EP for a little under a year now. It's been an interesting journey so far and that's partially what this small EP takes a look at.
Essentially, it's a collection of part II's and a look at the progression of life we've all seen in ourselves and in our friends. It's an attempt to not forget that first passion for playing music; to not forget the hope you first had in this experience. You could say it's an ode to old friends and the uncertainty we face as time moves us all apart.
Why We Need Your Help
Most bands have to worry about paying for studio time. Pioneers! O Pioneers! has two aspiring audio engineers and a passion to record our songs the way we envision them. As time has permitted, we've pieced together this EP, having only to sacrifice time and sleep. In the meantime, we've been playing shows and saving money to press our recording properly.
With being a newer band and having to build from the ground up, we still have some costs that we can't get over easily. Our goal may look small but, with being a small 3-piece, it is a mountain of which we live in the shadow. Whatever money you pledge will be put to good use. We'll be updating here and through our mailing list, should you decide to sign up. You may be asking what the money you pledge would go to. Some of the remaining hurdles we're trying to get over include mastering our recordings properly with the help of a good mastering engineer, copyrighting, commissioning the creation of artwork and of course the pressing and duplication of the physical CD.
So now we've told you why we're asking for your help but what are you going to get in return? We've set up four different pledge levels. As a thank you to everyone who might potentially donate and help us we've decided that we'll include a personal thank you, in our CD's booklet, to each individual who donates regardless of the pledge level. So if you think you want to help out and you only want to offer a dollar you'll get a thank you!
