***UPDATE: Thank you all SO much for helping us reach our goal - BEFORE our deadline hit!! It is amazing and inspiring to have your support. Please know, that despite having reached our goal we appreciate ANY further pledges. Monies beyond the $10,000 will go toward pressing cd, perhaps vinyl (we hope!), possibly extra songs... possibilities are endless. Thank you for continuing to believe in this project and telling everyone you know about it!!!***
Hi! We're the Eagle Rock Gospel Singers from Eagle Rock, CA. We've been around since 2010 playing traditional gospel songs in our practice space (aka “garage”), at house parties, and at some of the best LA venues. We began mixing in original songs that we’ve written in the past 8 months. Now we're ready to record a 5 song EP, but we need your help to raise $10,000 for the recording process. We're also excited to have some great rewards to give to our backers!
Our music is a mix of gospel/indie rock/folk/blues and we infuse the spirit of joy and frustration and pleading and celebration into it, just like the gospel music of the past. We're excited to get our original songs out into the world, in the proper format.
We've found an amazing producer to work with, Kevin Augunas, who's worked with really great bands like the Cold War Kids and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, awesome bands that we look up to, and we're really excited about the prospect of working with him to record an album analog style.
Recording to tape will give us that warm vintage sound that is super vital to the style of music that we’ve worked so hard to emulate. The money we hope to raise here on Kickstarter would help us cover the costs of
- paying our producer
- getting studio time
- buying the analog tape
- mixing the recordings
- mastering the final product
We need your help to continue this project that we are dreaming about. We either reach our goal here or we don’t get anything so if you like what you see, and you’re excited about this project like we are, please back this project. Thank you SO much for hearing us out. Please know that any donation helps. Plus, we have some really special items to share with you, our backers and partners on this that you can read about on the right.
