We're recording our first full length album and we need your help! Every contribution level comes with some great 'kickbacks'!

After two plus years of writing songs, playing shows and being more, or less awesome we've finally reached the point where we're ready to record. Our goal is to produce an album that does the music justice. We belief in our songs and want to create something that can be enjoyed by folks for years to come....

Once we decided to record we needed to decide where to record. One of our primary concerns was not only having professional equipment to record with, but to also work with a producer that could help us achieve the best possible final product through both recording experience and production skills....

We found the perfect studio right here in Spokane. SFCC recently built a brand new, state of the art recording facility. All the equipment is top of the line. It also offers fun things like a nine foot grand piano, isolation booths (for simultaneous recording), a concert hall located directly above the studio with cable access (this means we can record our strings in an auditorium and get some real, bonafide reverb) and many other great features...

The biggest selling point however is that the head of the Audio Production Department is Steve Gamberoni; a California transplant engineer with an impressive track record. Steve has worked with some big names, including Ben Harper, Jerry Lee Lewis, Los Lobos, Usher and Real Big Fish. One of our primary aspirations was to work with a producer that could provide an educated perspective. After meeting with Steve and giving him a chance to hear what we do, the choice to record at The Falls was an easy one....

Our fundraising goal of $7000 covers all recording cost and gives us a few extra dollars to make sure our instruments are sounding their best. (I.E. new strings, speaker repair, etc.) It will also provide a little bit of money to feed ourselves while we're locked away in the studio.

With this money we can create a professional quality album that we can all enjoy for years to come. There are plenty of donation levels, but we're essentially asking you to pre-buy the album so we can make it for you.

A RECENT WORD FROM THE SPOKESMAN REVIEW...

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risk are few. We're ready to record. We've been playing these songs for two-plus years and we know, more-or-less how they should sound; or more precisely, how the could sound. The only true barrier to successfully completing this project is a lack-of-funds, hence the Kickstarter.
