Hey, we're Cowgill, a five-piece indie rock band from Cambridge, MA. We're ready to record and produce our debut album, but we need your help!
But don’t worry, you’ll get awesome stuff in return.
Over the past five months, we have been arranging, rehearsing and performing our songs at shows in & around Boston and New York. Press feedback has been strong, and we've grabbed the attention of the staff at some of the finest recording studios in the New England area (1 2 3 4 5). We are excited to be working with these studios to release an album of the highest quality. But, unfortunately, this collaboration won't be free. We’re gonna really try to knock this one out of the park for you guys, and we’re committed to making it as carefully produced (but not over-produced) as anything out there -- radio, indie, or otherwise.
To save on costs, we've elected to release the two "sides" of our debut album separately. In this Kickstarter campaign, your contributions will enable us to record and produce Side One of the album: The King of Wales; I Think I’ve Been Breathing; Red Carpet; Extra Gravity; Plans.
Believe it or not, $6,000 only covers the bare minimum of what needs to be done on this project...
Recording - $2000. Mixing - $1700. Mastering - $500. Digital distribution - $200. CDs w/ album art, liner notes, etc. - $1000. Fees to process the Kickstarter payments - $600
GRAND TOTAL $6,000
In exchange for your help, we're offering a bevy of prizes. So check out the video, give what you can, and tell your friends and family! Even if you all choose the $40 reward (high quality download of the album, a signed CD, and a brand-spanking-new Cowgill T-shirt), we still need to find 150 people at that reward level to get the project funded! But we know we can do it, with your help.

And don't forget -- time runs out on December 21st, 2011!
