Hi all! We're making something special and want you to be a part of it! 

We know, we know, it's been a long while since our first/last release as "Connor & Karlee," almost four years to be exact. But we've been busy growing up, traveling, attending school, hiking mountains, and having quarter life crises, oh, and writing songs!

 We were so fortunate to be able to live in a campervan together throughout New Zealand in December 2016, surrounding ourselves with nothing but nature and inspiration (turns out Connor talks in his sleep a lot and Karlee can't follow navigation directions to save her life). We didn't know it at the time... but this trip would lead us here, talking to you...with a new name, purpose, and most importantly, with new songs! 

 We are so incredibly proud of the songs we've written in the last year and are ready to share them with you, but we need your help! Because we believe in this music so much, and the power that it has to bring us all together, we plan to record it in a way that represents our vision in the best light... with amazing musicians and producers in shiny studios and rooms.

We have the complete honor of working with producer Ben Tolliday, who produces our favorite band Lord Huron, at Whispering Pines Studio in Los Angeles, CA, as well as with many of our talented musician friends throughout the state!

With your help, this Kickstarter will help fund the cost of our scheduled studio hours, session musicians, mixing and mastering, production and eco-friendly CD duplication, branding and design of the EP with local graphic artists, as well as the marketing and promotion of the final product

 After our trip in NZ, we wanted to do something special, something that was bigger than ourselves and powered by music. Me&you represents exactly that. We believe that if anything is going to change in the world, it has to be "me&you" that do it together. We want our music to embody this mantra and more importantly, our live shows to demonstrate the necessity of coming together. We intend for our musical journey to be a collaborative effort and showcase just how important it is to support each other through creativity and love! In doing so, we plan to be heavily involved with local and grassroot efforts in music, education, sustainability, and charitable causes following the release of this EP, giving back to the communities that support us! We need your support to help spread the gift of music and love in a world that sometimes needs a little more positivity. 

 Additionally, as we're sure you all have guessed by now, we love nature...We have made a commitment to pursue both our passion for music and protecting the environment through "me&you"! To start, for every $1,000 raised through this campaign, we will be doing something to better the environment, like planting trees in the city, picking up trash along the Sacramento River or Southern California's beaches! Help us, help the earth :) 

 Asking for money is not always an easy thing to do, especially when our world is the way it is right now, when our friends in the North Bay are having to rebuild their lives from the ground up… but together, we believe we can give back to hurting communities through the gift of music.

Thank you for all of your support! We love you.

Risks and challenges

This is the biggest leap of faith we've taken with our music. It's exciting, scary, and all kinds of hard work...but now, more than ever, we're ready for it. However, there is risk involved...

Regardless if we reach our Kickstarter goal, we will be pushing forward with this project because we believe in our music so much. That's why we're humbly asking for your support! We run the risk of being in a bit of a financial pinch if we do not reach our goal, making touring and promotion of the EP a bit tough after its release. But we know this record will open up some new doors for us and most importantly bring some positivity into world, we accept these challenges!

It's often hard to put a deadline on art, but we are fully prepared to produce this EP within the next few months and get it into your hands as quickly as possible! Along with your support, we greatly appreciate your patience!

LOVE,
C&K
