Kelsey Rottiers and the Rising Tide are heading to Groovebox Studios on Friday, August 9th 2013 to record and film a live GBS Detroit EP and video. What makes 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 video being featured on GBS Detroit's site. This is your chance to experience Kelsey Rottiers and the Rising Tide the way they were meant to be heard, up-close and personal in Detroit.

We're doing a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $1200 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 Kelsey Rottiers and the Rising Tide make the most of this awesome opportunity to record and film at GBS Detroit.

Risks and challenges

GBS Detroit sessions are designed to create a unique experience for our artists and their fans. Along with creating a top-notch live video and EP, our mission with this project is to foster a tighter artist to fan relationship. Along with raising the funds needed for this project, this Kickstarter campaign has the added benefit of creating a platform for other unique experiences for our artists and their fans by way of rewards. By offering rewards such as "Be Part of it All, You Call The Cover, A Song for You and House Concerts", we hope to foster an extended experience that goes far beyond the 4 walls of Groovebox Studios.

The challenges inherent in the project are the degree of which we help our artists execute these unique and deeply personal experiences for their fans as well as consistently delivering the high quality audio and video content from this session Groovebox Studios has become known for.

We record and film up to 3 sessions per week, which means we often run multiple Kickstarter Projects simultaneously. We have a team in place who's sole focus is to manage, monitor and maintain our Kickstarters. This job doesn't end when the project is funded, but rather continues for the months after a project is complete as we ensure that all rewards are filled and expectations are met.

Groovebox Studios is committed to ensuring we go beyond artist and backer expectations on every session. We have the experience, equipment, procedures and staff in position to ensure we can deliver what we promise on every aspect of this project.
