Join Hannah Glavor and the family band as they embark on their next musical journey in the making of their second album: HALCYON Read more

About this project
Hannah Glavor is heading back into the studio and she's bringing her family band with her! This January we will be heading to Seattle to record our second EP - HALCYON. We are honored to partner with the talented Kevin Matley who has recorded some of our favorite bands like Bryan John Appleby and The Head and The Heart. It's an incredible opportunity for us and a rad pairing of talent as we get to make music with someone who has helped create some of our favorite tunes.
Halcyon denotes a time of promised peace after the harshest of winter's storms. This album represents alot of wrestling and restoration which gives great meaning to its namesake on a personal level as well as what we are investing collaboratively. Our desire is for people to know hope; that they are not alone in their dark. Grounded in truth and love, we seek and advocate peace, life and hope lyrically, melodically and with our lives. Come join us!
How YOU can help:
We are stoked to jump into this new season of music, but we can't do it without your help. We need around $7,000 to make this album, but we're starting with our bare necessities of $5250 by November 30th to cover the cost of recording, studio, production, mixing AND mastering. That cost will cover basics, but we still need roughly another $2,000 to be able to make the physical copies of the CD, pay the talented musicians that we plan on recording with as well as extra recording expenses. This is your opportunity to partner with us in this project! Its more than an investment or a donation, its you being a part of the making of this EP. You're empowering us to make music that we love and hopefully inspires others.
Come join the family band as we embark on the magical journey of making an album! We can't do this without you!
To close, I present this lovely video our incredibly talented and dear friend Nate Grubbs made for us. Wells Run Dry is off our first album, which lovely folks like YOU made possible. Thank you for helping us achieve our dreams!
Risks and challenges
How it works:
TIME LIMIT: We have only till NOVEMBER 30th to meet our goal of $5,250 so spread the word! The catch is that NONE of the funding goes through unless the full ammount of $5,250 is raised. The amount can exceed the minimum, which would allow us to pay my musicians, make physical copies, cover production expenses etc, but the money NEVER leaves your bank account if its under. Lets do this, guys!
WHY 5 GRAND?:
The cost of recording is not cheap. We pay for studio time per-day, daily producer fees, musician compensation, mixing, mastering, design, and packaging; it adds up fast.
PRIZE SYSTEM: We have set up a number of prize packages for a series of minimum contributions. You are investing in us and we want to say thanks by hooking you up with awesome stuff! Donations can be higher or lower than the amounts listed if so desired.
WHAT IS A YOUTUBE COVER?:
We love to partner with our musical friends to make you an reinvented cover of any song you request. Let us show you!
