About this project
Hi, It's Us
We are Nine Pound Shadow, a band of two brothers from Berkeley, California. We’ve been writing songs together as long as we can remember, but we've never wanted to release anything that didn’t properly represent our vision – our love for music and life.
So a year ago, we holed up in a remote cabin in the foggy redwoods of Mendocino to sharpen and hone the best of our tunes. We’re so happy to announce that we now have a collection of recordings we are proud of and eager to share with you. But to finish the final stages and turn this music into a full-length album, we could use a hand.
The majority of this Kickstarter Money will be used to pay for studio time and hire a sound engineer along with other musicians. More tracking is needed, then mixing and mastering - and at the end of all this, we’ll need to press the actual CDs.
Our funding goal is the minimum needed to complete the album of our dreams. Any money raised beyond our goal will be used for touring and promoting the album upon its completion.
In exchange for jumping on the magic Nine Pound Shadow bus, we have a staggering array of priceless Nine Pound Shadow swag perfect for reminding you of your true dream-making powers.
Please refer to our website for updates of the rewards we're offering. All of the art on our site is created by us!
In the End
We really appreciate you joining us in bringing this dream and these sounds to fruition. We’d love if you would share our project with everyone you know. THANK YOU!
Risks and challenges
We are committed to making this album a reality. Once our project is funded we'll continue to stay organized and focused on it's completion. With a succesful Kickstarter campaign we will have funding to match our energy and determination. Your participation is the difference between something recorded in a bedroom and the music of our dreams.
Writing and recording original music is an extremely personal process. Though it is easy to get stuck on a song in an attempt to perfect it, our challenge is to know when to let go and allow the music take flight.
No matter what obstacles may arise - logistical, creative, or otherwise - we've got each other, and we've got you. Together, we can accomplish anything.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
