American Opera is bound for GBS Detroit!

American Opera is heading to GBS Detroit to record and film a 5 song live e.p. and video. What make's GBS Detroit so special is that all of our sessions are recorded LIVE in one room, by one band, in one take. We don't use any studio smoke and mirrors. That means NO over-dubs, NO re-do's and NO auto-tuned vocals! Plus, the cameras will be rolling the whole time, with the videos being featured on GBS Detroit's site. This is your chance to experience American Opera the way it was meant to be heard, live, loud and raw from Detroit!!

We're doing a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $600 needed to make this happen. But we're not here just asking for cold hard cash, when you pledge money to this project you'll get all kinds of great rewards, including the opportunity to be in the studio audience during the session!!

So, look on over to the right and choose the reward that's most appealing to you. It's easy! Help us make the most of this awesome opportunity to to record and film at GBS Detroit.
