About this project

To all of our friends,

Thanks for taking the time to check out our project! Earlier this year, we made a thirteen song album called "Picture Story Friends Goodbye". We recorded it in an old farm house where a few of us were living, between fields of growing things and by a tree full of eager singing birds (which come through the quieter parts of the album). It's honest music about friendships, moving, childhood, death and love sang over all the instruments we've ever learned to play. Shortly after the album was finished, our lives took us to different places far away from each other. After months of preparation (mixing, remixing, mastering), we're finally ready to release it! We would love to be able to put our album on vinyl (the way we think music sounds best) and we're trying to raise the money to make that happen.
We're expecting to press a short run of the album on colored vinyl (color to be determined), which we estimate to cost about $1,500; the remaining 500 dollars of our goal is to be able to reach each other (by plane, train, etc.) and to do a tour playing songs from this album.

Donors can receive a copy of the album weeks earlier than anyone else, plus a bunch of other cool stuff that no one else even knows about yet (Check out the incentives!)

To listen to songs from the new album visit our bandcamp page at:

Thank you so much for your help, we love you!
Becky, Molly and Ben
