Three years ago we found ourselves together in a beautiful place, high up in the Catskill Mountains of New York. We didn't have the studio where we were used to writing music. We didn't have electricity, tuners, amps or microphones. We had a child-sized guitar, a bamboo flute, a djembe and sleigh bells. But we knew that we needed to write a song about that place, so we did, it's called Clouds Catch Fire. It's a simple one but it's been one of our most popular songs to date. That experience taught us about the power of acoustic music and really started to change the way we approached our music in general. We added a harmonium, vibraphone, upright bass, bamboo flute and the sleigh bells into our performances and started doing acoustic tours in addition to the full-band tours. 

In 2013 we released our first acoustic record Native Color for free and were amazed to see and hear the response from people about this raw, organic take on our songs. We recorded the whole thing ourselves and had a friend do all of the post-production for next to nothing, and yet even without spending tons of money we had people saying that they loved the recording, and numerous companies and organizations have used it on radio/video ads and TV shows. 

This year we've recorded songs from previous records and some new songs in the same way, stripped down with all acoustic instruments. We've done most of the work ourselves but there is still some post-production and printing costs. That's where you come in. We are so appreciative of all the people who have listened to our music and encouraged us over the many years that we've been playing music together. 

Risks and challenges

There is always a possibility that we won't be able to deliver everything by the day of our goal's end. CDs take a couple of weeks to print and so as soon we get them in we will send them straight to you! The private concert reward date will depend on our schedules and yours, we will do our best to work with you but please understand that in any setting it can take a little back and forth to nail down a date, this is true with any event that we play.
