Dead Winter Carpenters is a touring Americana Rock band from CA. We are excited to head back in the studio and create our next album!

Dead Winter Carpenters is a rollicking, high-energy, roots-infused five-piece band based out of Northern California’s fertile music scene, specifically North Lake Tahoe, CA that came together in Spring 2010.  Our five-piece outfit consists of fiddler Jenni Charles, upright bassist Dave Lockhart, guitarists Jesse Dunn and Sean Duerr, and drummer Ryan Davis. 

DWC has been out on the road, working hard, meeting new friends, and learning the ropes of being a touring band for most of 2011...all in the efforts of supporting our current album.  We've held court with an unyielding tour schedule, having played over 165 performances in 15 states (crazy, right?).  Throughout the course of our travels, our experiences have inspired us to write a bunch new material..some heard, some not out there for your ears to hear...yet!  So, we are really looking forward to heading back into the studio to bring these songs together on a new album.  In doing so, we want our best effort and product for our fans.  In order to bring the new DWC album to folks out there, we need to spend time in the studio with a producer to get it all figured out.  When done with the recording in the studio, we'll need to master the album (get all the levels right), duplicate it (make a bunch of 'em) and market the fresh DWC sound to as many ears as possible out there in the world.


We decided upon this unique Kickstarter approach to make it all happen and are going for it!  The aspect we really appreciated about Kickstarter is that you make a "pledge" of a various amount according to the incentives list we set up for you to pick from (look to the the right!!!).  In return for your "pledge", we provide you with a "tangible thank you" (hi-fives-yes! they are tangible, pre-released, signed albums, t-shirts to name a few)!  Only from a Kickstarter pledge will you be able to get a digital download or a signed copy of the new album before anyone else! 

We will only be able to provide prizes if our goal is fully met.  

What happens if the goal is not met?  Should we not make our goal, pledges will be cancelled and no one will be charged for the amount they pledged. We can still kick you down a hi-five and thank you for the support when we see you!

We thank you in advance for your support!  

Enjoy the video we made about this adventure toward a new album!

Jenni, Jesse, Dave, Ryan & Sean
