Hey there,
We only have a few minutes to get your attention so here goes -

We want to make a NEW ALBUM and we want YOU to be a part of every bit of it!

First the backstory...
Tyler moved to Charleston, SC six years ago with the sole intention of learning how to play guitar and sing well enough to score a bar gig. That was the whole dream. On his first night in town the band at the Blind Tiger didn't show up - lucky for him! The bar owner told Tyler if he grabbed his gear, he would let him play ONE song. And, if it 'sucked' he was going to pull the plug. Well, one song turned into one set. One set turned into three hours. And eventually, one gig turned into six years. He soon found four other musicians who were chasing the same dream to created the band that came to be known as Crowfield. The life wasn't glamorous but it was the very reason Tyler moved half way across the country on not much more than a whim and a few tanks of gas. All the while, in Crowfield's meager beginnings, there was one thing that made the journey worth the sacrifice - it was meeting people like you, who thoroughly enjoy the music.

Now...
Six years later, after playing every dirty, smoky dive bar from here to Seattle (and some pretty cool places in between) the same thing is true: the best part about what we do is meeting people like you after the shows, and learning what our music means to you. Maybe you got over an ex-girlfriend or boyfriend at a show. Or maybe you met your wife at a Crowfield concert like Tyler did. Maybe one of our songs came on your iPod just at the perfect time when you were driving across the country. Whatever it is…it is because of YOU that we’ve been able to taste what we thought was out there when we decided to follow our dream.

So, here's what we’re getting at...
After signing to a major record label and being dropped, after moving across the country, after watching crowds go from 3 people at The Blind Tiger to 3000 at Family Circle Stadium, it all comes back to you. And right now, what we need the most is YOU to help make this new album.

We have over 30 songs we are madly in love with and dying for you to hear. They can either rot away in our rehearsal space, or on our computers’ hard drives as demos, or we can do something about it. So what do we do? We launch this Kickstarter campaign and we find everybody we can who wants to hear a new Crowfield album as much as we do. And, we ask for money. But we don't want it for free--we want to give you everything we have to offer. We want to give you a new album AND some other pretty cool perks (look to your right--->) 

We may have met you on an airplane ride headed home for Christmas - or hopping out of our old van in Wildorado, Texas where it broke down for the 300th time - or when we were grocery baggers at Whole Foods - or when we had a job cleaning rat poop out of attics (yes, Tyler actually did that! Disgusting.) - or when one of our parents said, "Hey, check out my son's band" - or when one of our friends said "You've got to check this out!" - or when we were on international waters playing a VH1 Music cruise - or when we were barefaced and a little bit younger playing cover songs on King Street. Whatever it was, wherever it was, we never have and never will be able to do this without YOU. So right now we're asking, let's do this album together!

Here on this Kickstarter page, you'll find everything we have to offer. We truly can't do this without you - our friends, our families, our fans.

Thank you. Thank you.

-Crowfield
