Hellooo! We are The Old Fashions and we're recording new songs with our friends Catherine Popper and Aaron Lee Tasjan. All new songs written and sung by Amanda Chessa, produced and engineered by Tom Schick, and recorded at the Magic Shop.

We're really excited to working with Tom Schick. He's an amazing is producer / engineer / mixer who has worked with a lot of artists that we love -- Wilco, Norah Jones, Ryan Adams, M. Ward. We've heard the Magic Shop (The Rolling Stones, Built to Spill, Arcade Fire, Bjork), ahem, is a magical studio (pun intended).

We've spent the the last year jamming, writing, rehearsing and playing shows. Pretty standard band stuff but we've also opened some new doors and challenged ourselves as well. Hoping that we can outdo ourselves in 2013.

We're asking for your support to help us cover the costs of:

  • studio
  • musicians
  • engineering
  • mixing
  • mastering
  • production of CD & vinyl

We covered this on our own for the first two recordings we did, but we're really shooting for the stars on this one. The $10,000 won't cover all of our expenses, but it'll will help cover the majority of it.

Your support means a lot to us. It's hard to communicate our appreciation in words so we hope you find something in the right hand column that catches your fancy. We're looking forward to sharing our music with you.

Risks and challenges

The only challenges we face are logistics. There's a lot of moving parts for ordering shirts, CDs, vinyl, setting up lessons, etc. Nothing too complicated, though!
