Greetings!

Boca Chica is in the throes of creating another full length record! I've got a great new mix of musicians together and we're busy crafting the perfect twangy/sweet/weird/homey/pretty/dark sound that characterizes Boca Chica.

Here's an example of that sound from our last record:

Lake Erie

We've got a great core band of Hallie/Susanna/Ricky/J./James and we're also wrangling in a lovely new string and horn section and will probably be tapping shoulders of various other wildly talented musicians to fill in. We want to make the very best, most poignant, occasionally weird, lovely, cowboy boot stomping and hipster head banging album ever. Ever.

Damn, I'm excited about this.

Of course, it takes money to do all of these things. Lordy, is it hard to talk about money. But Kickstarter makes it easy. If you will just take a moment to peruse our awesome lists of rewards/prizes, I think you'll agree that you get a lot of bang for your buck. And any money you give will help us to record, mix, master, produce, manufacture, promote, design and release our album. In short, it will help us get our music out there with the minimum amount of hair tearing and tears possible.

So please, watch our video! Pick a prize! Support us! And if there's something you would like, but don't see it listed, just drop us a line at bocachicamusic AT gmailDOTcom

xoxo,

Hallie Pritts/Boca Chica
