Bindley Hardware Co. New Album "Ever Satisfactory"

$3,054

66

Hi, my name is Jon Bindley. My band is called Bindley Hardware Co. and we're making a new album called Ever Satisfactory. We're a rust-belt Americana band from Pittsburgh, PA that draws influence from classic country, folk and modern alt-country, as well as from the original Bindley Hardware Co. 

What's that you say? Well, there was an actual hardware company ran by my family during Pittsburgh’s industrial boom in the early 20th century. In fact, it was owned and operated by a fella also named Jon Bindley. In addition to the album, I'm making a documentary called Everything In Hardware that follows my research of the original Bindley Hardware Co., and me figuring out who I am by way of figuring out where I come from. You see, Pittsburgh is known for the Carnegies and the Mellons. They built this city, but there was the original Jon Bindley— making the hammers and the saws they use to build this city.

A couple years ago, when I was living in Nashville, I found on eBay a Bindley Hardware Company catalog from the early 1900s. I paid like 200 big ones for that thing! It's an actual catalog full of BHC's full line of tools. It's pretty neat if you ask me.

Finding that catalog really got me thinking. I started researching the Bindley Hardware Company more and then it turned into this little documentary that I mentioned above that we called "Everything In Hardware." It's an excellent companion piece to the album that we created. Check out the trailer for it below:

But yeah, I lived in Nashville for 3 years. I guess I moved down there to chase this thing. But I learned a lot in Music City— the biggest part being this: In my opinion, to really make it, you need to peel away all the layers that aren't you, to reveal the true you, because what's more unique than that! Yes, in the end the dream I chased down to Nashville ended up chasing me right back to Pittsburgh. I came back with a fire under me, and I think in part because I realized that for me to make it I had to do it in the CITY OF BRIDGES

Fast forward to 2017: The Steelers asked if they could play my song "Three Rivers" at this years home games, so of course I said YES! They even took the music video and re-edited it adding in clips of some cool touchdowns and the fans. Wanna see it? Here it is:

Me and the band have been recording Ever Satisfactory at Treelady Studios in Pittsburgh, PA, with producer Dave Hidek. We've been paying out of pocket to make this record happen. The point we're at is this. The record is nearly finished being recorded, BUT— to make it the way it NEEDS to be, it's taken all of the funds we have to just to do the recording part. So, the funds from this campaign are gonna go towards gettin' the dang thing out there! The funds from this project will go towards finishing the recording and making CDs (and hopefully some sweet Black Vinyl).

PROJECT GOALS:

$2,500 - "Ever Satisfactory" comes of life on CD, along with everything listed in the reward tiers listed to the right

$7,500 - "Ever Satisfactory" comes to life on Standard Black Vinyl and EVERY BACKER that selects the CD Bonus Package of $33 (or any reward package above $33) gets (1) copy of the vinyl album included in their package at NO EXTRA COST -- But ONLY if we reach that $7,500 goal!

$10,000 - We get to hire a publicist & explore marketing options for the album release cycle of "Ever Satisfactory"

Thanks for tuning in. If you don't share this, at least share some good music like some Glen Campbell or Bob Dylan! Thanks yinz and GO STEELERS! 

Risks and challenges

Well, I guess the biggest risk is this:

If we don't meet the goal of this project, we won't be able to present to the world the physical component of the record. It's up to the good people!
