*Update 3/13/2013: For a peek into the songwriting process, check out this probably-future-award-winning "behind the scenes" mini doc:

*Update: We are now including the full demo reel of the album to all pledge rewards starting at the $25 level and a newly designed Bailiff t-shirt starting at the $100 level!

*If you share this page with your friends, email us at bailiffmusic@gmail.com to receive an mp3 of Bailiff's cover of "Instant Karma," as a thank you for spreading the word!

Bailiff has written the songs for our 2nd full-length album and now we're ready to record it!  Well, almost ready.  We've got the songs, engineer Beau Sorenson (Death Cab For Cutie, Yellow Ostrich, Bob Mould), and the studio (Chrome Attic) all in order, now we just need to raise the money to fund the album. 

That's where you come in!  By pre-ordering the upcoming Bailiff record you will be funding the actual making of this album.  Pretty cool, huh?

Maybe we've earned your trust through our last album, Red Balloon, or at a live show, or through that overly enthusiastic friend of yours that kept pestering you to check out Bailiff online.  Either way, we're willing to promise that we've got a solid record on our hands and we want you to help us bring it to Earth! 

We have 30 days to raise $15,000. The catch with Kickstarter is that the funding is "all or nothing," meaning that we only receive your pledge if we hit our goal.  

You can help spread the word by sharing this with your friends and family via email, facebook, and twitter.

Thanks for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter.  Exciting times ahead.

See you on the other side...
