It’s been too long since Due West has released new, packaged music. We've been making promsies that no matter what it took, it would happen in 2013. Well, as promised, we are making it happen now!

We are no longer on a record label, but this Kickstarter approach will allow us to continue forward with the process of bringing you new music. By reaching our Kickstarter goal, we will be able to record and release brand new music THIS SUMMER!

Reaching our Kickstarter pledge goal will allow us to complete all the new studio recordings including tracking, mixing and mastering. It will also pay for the EP artwork and design, as well as printing, duplication and packaging. If we can then exceed our goal, we will pick one of the 6 songs as a single to be released to radio. We hope to be able to shoot a music video for that single as well and do a satellite and secondary radio promotion push. This further action is all dependent upon the level of participation and success we receive through Kickstarter.

Kickstarter uses an 'all or nothing' system, which means that if for some unlikely reason we don't hit our pledge goal, no money will be exchanged, and no rewards will be distributed. However, once we meet our pledge goal, you can be guaranteed new music and rewards are on the way! 

We have set a fundraising deadline of Friday, May 24th at 11pm Tennessee time. If we reach our pledge goal before that date, our Kickstarter project will stay live, and will continue to accept pledges. In the event that we surpass our goal, we encourage everyone to keep spreading the word and for pledging to continue. We will update everyone with details on how any additional money raised beyond our original goal will be graciously welcomed and put to effective use to build the Due West brand. After all, YOU and DUE WEST are essentially running a record label now! :)

So, what do ya think? We would be incredibly grateful for any help that you can provide; you can pledge as little as $1, but be sure to check out the “Rewards” section of this page to see what we are offering to those that pledge at least $10. We have some pretty unique gifts and fun opportunities for those who pledge.

We have always known that we have the greatest fans, friends and family in the world. We are incredibly grateful for the opportunities that lie ahead of us, and we thank you. We have a busy concert season this year and look forward to getting this brand new music out to as many of you as possible. Let's do this!!

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges with this Kickstarter project are just making sure we effectively get the word out about this campaign. We are hopeful that once people hear our story and understand our drive and determination to continue to put new music out and grow our fan base, that they will want to team up with us to make it happen. New music is coming - one way or another!
