About this project
STRETCH GOAL #1
If we can hit $40,000, we will record an EP of new cover songs and EVERY ONE that has pledged $25 or more will get it on CD! We've got the first song in mind already....(maybe with some fun surprise guest artists?)
We're making a new record!
We are Fleming and John; a husband and wife Duo from Nashville, TN. Two Albums ("Delusions of Grandeur" and "The Way We Are") were released in the 90's on REX Records and Universal Records. Since then, we've been having kids and making music.
Fleming has stayed busy singing on albums (Ben Folds, William Shatner, Train, Jars Of Clay), movies ("Hoodwinked"), studio singing, teaching voice and running singing camps for girls www.girlsuploud.com
John has been doing studio playing, producing, arranging, engineering, composing for a wide variety of artists, movies, TV and advertising and as a member of Steve Taylor and The Perfect Foil
We hope that this Kickstarter campaign can help us reconnect with YOU, the fans. And will also help us cover the costs of musicians, recording, mastering, TIME, photography, artwork, manufacturing, shipping, record release show etc...
All the backers will get an immediate download of a new song that will be on the album.
All CD's and LP's will come with a super cool custom deluxe book
TRUE FANS (and Ed Rock..the original): We will give you the inside scoop. You will get demos of the songs as we are working on them. We will send you digital downloads of fun cover songs, videos from the making of the record, access to our original demos/old recordings, old pics and videos from touring etc...
SUPER True Fans will get invitations to the "Private Backer/Party Show" at The East Side Manor (courtesy of Todd Burkett). The Party/Show will be an informal event...BBQ? Campfire? "Picking party?" It'll be fun.
They will also get an immediate shipment from our 'stash' of REX and Universal pressings of "Delusions of Grandeur" (LIMITED!) or "The Way We Are" CD's, an assortment of CD Singles ("The Pearl" Moon Pie artwork, "Love Songs" Conversation Heart artwork and "Ugly Girl" Creature from the Black Lagoon artwork! ). Some of our old "Superhero" posters (LIMITED!) drawn by Brad Talbott (F&J, Shawn and Stan Rawls as The Fantastic 4), some REX "Delusions of Grandeur 12" Poster Flats, original F&J Stickers....we are still unearthing a few gems.
After the Album is completed we will book a date for our "Private Backer Party/Show", and a record release club show in Nashville, a few tour dates? House Shows? ....looking forward to it!
