About this project
Thanks for stopping by our Kickstarter page! We are glad you are here. Please make yourself comfortable, kick off your shoes, and have a look around....
Over the past year, we have been hard at work writing & arranging a whole bunch of new songs as a band. We are so excited to finally be able to get these songs recorded and into your ears. In January 2011 we are getting the opportunity to head into the studio with Nashville engineer and producer, Mark Nevers. Mark has worked with some of our favorite artists of all time, including; Andrew Bird, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, and Lambchop, just to name a few. He is an incredible talent and we couldn't be more excited about the idea of working with him.
Basically, we have this page up to help raise money so that we can record and press our first full length record as a band! This is very exciting for us, but we can't do it alone (turns out recording is expensive!) We are humbly asking for your help to make this record possible. Through this page, you can pledge money towards our recording project. The money you pledge will go to help fund the making of the record as well as the duplication of the record when it is finished. This isn't an unrequited fundraiser, though. You do, in fact, get something in return for your pledges. Yayyyy! Over on the side of this page, you will see all different levels of pledge amounts. We are offering everything from a digital download to a house concert in your very own living room, depending on your pledge! Think of it as sort of "pre-ordering" an album that has yet to be made.
We have our goal set at $7,000 for Kickstarter but we are shooting for $8,000. We realize this is a lot of money. It's a very scary number, but I'm confident we can get there!
Every little bit helps and anything you are able to contribute is a HUGE help to us! Thank you for taking the time to look around and thank you for helping make what we do possible. We love our fans, friends, and families more than anything and we couldn't do this without you!
Thank you so much for your love & support!
Daniel, Ricky, Joel, & Marshall
