Greetings, BUSHWOOD here! We are a reggae funk rock band based in South Florida and we're going into the studio to record our 2nd album, tentatively titled "Tidal Wave"!!

Is it difficult to record an album independently? Is it expensive? YES  & YES, but with your help we are confident we can do this!!

This past year has been the most challenging, fun and rewarding year of our lives. We've played some really amazing shows and venues, and we've been writing the best music of our career. We are upping the ante from our debut album (released April 2011) in every way, and we need your support to make it happen!!! Please watch our Kickstarter video (which includes some teases of new music!) and give what you can, we will not dissapoint! We want to take this space to thank YOU for taking your time to check out this project, and know that your donation is much appreciated, and that you will be a part of something amazing; a band of brothers with a serious passion for music laying their hearts out for you all to hear, with the goal of making a piece of art that will last.

Since our debut album, we have added a full time keyboard player, Claudio Napoles, who will add an amazing fourth dimension to the rock solid playing of our drummer Jon Cross, guitarist and lead vocalist Steven Ross Voronkov, and bass guitar and backup vocalist Adam Moskowitz.

We have 11 tracks set to record, and we enter the studio Satuday, August 11th to start tracking. We are planning on having friends from other SoFla Reggae bands sing guest vocals on some tracks, and we will be adding serious depth to the music with trumpet, saxophone, and percussion parts. We could not be more excited to get to the final product, and we are going to ensure that this is the best thing we've done yet.

By backing this project you will not only receive some cool rewards, you will also ensure that our album is the best sounding music we can possibly create, making you an important part of the whole process. We are hopeful that we will reach and EXCEED our goal!

It’s very important to keep in mind that Kickstarter is an ALL OR NOTHING deal. This means that either the project’s $1,420 goal is met or NONE of the pledged funds are collected. We ask that you to donate and pass this along to anyone you may know who might be interested in helping. If you're unable to donate, sharing this with people could make a huge difference in us reaching our goal, so PLEASE...share it, tweet it, post it, blog it, etc! Thank you for being a part of this adventure!

Tracks to be included are: Live Up, Tidal Wave, Hold On, Let It Flow, I Don't Mind, Determination, I Don't Want My MTV, Live For Today, I Can Only Wonder, Light & Love, and Top Of The Line.

We will update you guys as the album progesses! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
