The Eventide is an experimental worship music ensemble from Spokane WA. The band's arrangements are composed and performed by Travis Widmer (Guitar, and Bass) and Evan Jarms (Percussion, and Keys). Travis has a background in jazz, and writes warm, dissonant guitar layers that help define their sound. Evan is the creator and head writer of The Eventide. He and his fiancé Emily Ferguson are perusing a career in worship ministry and song writing. Emily, as the lead singer, brings a simplistic and emotive tone to each track. Devoted to the spread of doctrinally rich and stylistically progressive worship songs, The Eventide works hard to revitalize the role of ancient and modern hymns in the church.
This Kickstarter campaign is made to help launch The Eventide in their first project, and to support their endeavors to record meditative hymns for the church. By backing The Eventide, your support will go to the cost of studio time, post-production, distribution, Evan and Emily's wedding, and their pursuit of a worship ministry career. Sorrow & Love is in the works. They are hoping for an early winter release. Help The Eventide ensure that this project comes to fruition.
Here's the deal. If we reach a total of $1,500 contributed to this Kickstarter Campaign, The Eventide will put on a live performance at Faith Bible Church (Spokane, WA) in spring 2016 for all supporters.
Special Thanks to:
Paul Weber, Ryan Ferguson, TJ Bailey and Seth Weber for help with the production of this album and campaign.
Most supporters will likely be in Spokane area and can pick up any physical CD copies and/or Posters directly from Evan or at Faith Bible Church. For supporters receiving physical CD and/or Poster located outside the Spokane area, you will be contacted after the campaign ends to gather shipping information.
Risks and challenges
The project is already in the process of being recorded, but will be professionally mixed and mastered in Portland Oregon by Tyler Bailey, this can take time and therefore could potentially delay the release.
Distribution will be digital and physical. Digital distribution is fairly easy, but the process of printing the CD jackets for the physical copies will take extra time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
