The Silver Pages became a project almost by accident. We (Philip Zach and Paul Zach) started creating and recording in our spare time and brought in some friends to play unique instruments and sing on the first EP. It became an extremely inspiring process so we decided to finish an EP every couple years if possible. The experience of working with musicians from every walk of life: students, professionals, friends, even complete strangers, had such a deep impact on how the record evolved and how the melodies and lyrics were interpreted. The collaboration that we experienced in the studio was so fulfilling, and we decided to share the project with the world and hopefully involve as many people as possible, in whatever ways we could. That is why we decided to do a Kickstarter and open up the project to the community that already has been growing in Lincoln, NE.
We want to print CD's and distribute this music online, we'd love to get it into as many hands as possible and we'd love to get these songs out to the church. It is our dream that the church embraces these songs and sings them all over the world. The funds we raise here will pay for the production of the physical cd's themselves, the digital distribution fees, the cost for in-studio videos, and for production costs associated with the actual recording of the music.
If there are any rewards that you are interested in but you don't see here, send us an email and let us know. We will do what we can to get everybody involved.

Risks and challenges
The greatest challenges and risks associated with any creative work is that it never gets finished, or that it doesn't get the attention it deserves. As we work on it, we feel a weight and responsibility in the project because of how important and meaningful it is. We don't want to ruin it or cut any corners. We definitely don't want to leave it unfinished. The challenge creatively is to finish off these songs in the way they deserve. These songs, they are like gifts, we uncovered them and it is our responsibility to take good care of them and make sure we finish them properly. After they are finished, it will be another challenge to get them into all the right hands and to make sure the community doesn't stop there.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
