Down Home Collective began as three close friends coming together to make collaborative music. The trio is based in Cincinnati, OH, and plays original music that Ben, Andrew, and Matt write together as a group. While having tossed around the idea of recording, the group has yet to find themselves in a position to put out a record.  However, through some planning and recent connections, recording and releasing their first album is quickly becoming a reality.

Ben, Andrew, and Matt are looking to record at the Monastery, a recording studio also based in Cincinnati, OH. This space has been host to numerous amazing recordings, with artists such as The National, Feist, WHY?, and more. Drew Sliger of Leftfield Recordings has agreed to be the sound engineer for this project.

The expectation is not to rely solely on the outcome of this fundraiser, but to use the funds raised to help offset costs. Recording independently is an expensive process, and anything at all helps tremendously. If the campaign is successful, it will help the focus be more on the art, and less about how it is going to get out.

Every donation received on this kickstarter page will go directly to the following costs: studio time, mixing, mastering, audio engineering, printing download cards, pressing cds, graphic design, promotion, etc.

Risks and challenges

There are many stages to the production of an album, and a lot of things to consider. However, we fully intend on making this project happen, especially if we meet our goal. Our projected release date as of right now, is November 2019. Otherwise, we will release it as soon as possible.
