About this project
Whether you are one of our avid fans or simply an uninformed stumbler, welcome to our project! Garden Level is an all-male a cappella group at the University of Puget Sound. We are a hard working, fun-loving group of young men looking forward to recording our first professional-level album this spring. BUT - We will not be able to record without help from lovely individuals such as yourself!
Our album will be comprised of 8 songs. Each song will be an original arrangement created by some member of the group. This is a very exciting opportunity for us, and an important step for the group.
It is very important to us that this album be of top quality. To ensure that, we will be working with some of the best producers that the a cappella industry has to offer. We will be recording the album with Peter Hollens, an alumnus of the University Oregon group On the Rocks, and a prominent a cappella artist. Here is a link to his YouTube channel. Our album will be produced by Bill Hare (website here), who is one of the leading a cappella producers in the country.
Sadly, as a relatively new group, as of right now we cannot afford to do this out of our own pockets. On the upside, through donations from within our group, help from our student government (ASUPS), past paid performances, and donations from members' families, we have already raised over $7,000.
Our goal is to raise $2,000 on Kickstarter. Whether you have $5 to give or all $2,000, any and all financial contribution you can offer is extremely appreciated! Also, please do not hesitate to contribute beyond our $2,000 goal! We set our goal at $2,000 because we believe we can make a good album if we raise that much money. However, the more money we have, the better quality our album will be, and we of course want to be able to offer you, the contributors, the best possible CD!
Thank you so much for your help!
