As a band, we have been playing shows and working towards recording an album for a year and a half.  We have finally found our way into the studio (and it is sounding AMAZING) - but we need help from our friends to finish the album.  We would love to get this recorded and be able to share it with y'all.  With this album, we are creating a thoughtful telling of our time together - a sincere documentation of the many hours and days we have spent crafting these songs.  We are taking our time layering rich harmonies and adding accordion, organ and various instruments - to be woven throughout.

Your donation would go to:

- Studio recording time.

- Final mixing and mastering of the album.

- Album duplication and the printing of album artwork.

We are planning a CD release show in April - so those who donate will get their copy mailed to them before the show.

****If we happen to raise enough extra money over our initial goal, we plan to:

- Record extra songs (we have plenty!)

- Build a website for the band.

- Have the album printed on vinyl as well as CD.

Your support means so much to us...thank you for helping to make this happen!!
