Stepdad, a Pop band from Michigan, has the opportunity to record their debut album with famed producer Chris Zane and needs your help!

We have been hard at work this past year touring and writing what will become our epic first album Wildlife Pop. We've been very fortunate to gain the attention of producer Chris Zane who has worked with several artists such as Passion Pit, Mumford and Sons, Holy Ghost!, and Les Savy Fav.

Since we self released our debut EP Ordinaire almost a year ago, we have gained an amazing fan base via the internet and word of mouth. We believe we owe it to our fans, friends, and family to create the best sounding debut album we can.

Like most struggling bands, most if not all of our money is spent on touring and making sure the rent gets paid. This is a huge opportunity for us and we are calling on our fans to help make this a reality!

The funds that you help us raise will be used to pay for the costs of recording, producing, and mixing our debut album with producer Chris Zane in Brooklyn, NY
