BOLT FROM THE BLUE: 

uncertainty of life, unanticipated death, the estrangement of a family member, the return of the estranged, the birth of a child, the promise of a new day, the shining beauty and vulnerability of truth, the epiphany of purpose. 

We are raising funds to Complete our Full Length Album: 

  •  Retrieve our recorded tracks from our Grammy-winning engineer Jeff Thomas (The Eagles, Smashing Pumpkins, Mariah Carey) who moved away to Nashville by paying the remaining balance on the recordings. 
  •  Pay for the Mixing to be completed by the locally renowned, extremely efficient, creative giant Eamon Ford (Proteens, Huckleberry, Playboy Manbaby, Herbert Walker). 
  •  Get the Album Mastered by an Industry Professional for Sonic Clarity and Intensity
  •  RELEASE IT TO THE INTERNET AND BEYOND! (your favorite download or streaming service, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Youtube etc.)

BOLT FROM THE BLUE (Album Artwork) ~~ This incredibly unique lightning strike was captured by our very own Jessica Kump. She used a very uncommon and clever process to directly electrocute large format film! No other album cover has been made this way! We thought it was perfect to describe "Bolt from the Blue"; Lightning on a clear blue day.

We care deeply about this collection of songs and how they have been gifts to us from beyond ourselves, "from the ether" if you will. We love to play them because they have had a cathartic effect on us while we experienced all of these "bolts from the blue". We feel closer to everyone that connects with the energy of any of these songs. Whether you gravitate to the floyd-esque slower introspective, some rockin' riffs, a tender ballad, or a groovy dancey beat, there is something for everyone on this record.

Up to this point we have been completely self funded, please help us complete this album now by donating all that you can reasonably afford. We created this campaign to raise funds to meet a deadline window given by our engineer's schedule. Remember our funding is all or nothing here, please share with your friends so we can accomplish this goal! We want to reward you with a long list of gifts for giving so freely and for believing in our purpose, which is to enjoy the striking and surprising events that life has to offer. Stay Sweet.

Risks and challenges

We do risk not meeting our deadlines even if we meet our financial goal. Our recording engineer already moved out of state, and our mixing engineer has told us he plans to move out of state by the 5th of November. We are running up against these deadlines, hence the Mega Short Campaign! We risk his schedule getting busy and life getting in the way for him. In conclusion, if we reach our goal there will no doubt be a record, it just may not may not be produced in the time-window we are hoping for. We will give you all a heads-up regarding our progress along the way as well as when you will be able to get your downloads/stream it on the internet/receive rewards.
