About

Hey guys, gals, friends and foes.

We (Kyle Henderson, Tyler Osmond) have been sitting here for the past 17 hours trying to find a good way to say...."WE NEED HELP!"  We, for the last 2 years, have been writing, recording, re-writing, re-recording, and attempting to perfect what we feel will be our greatest piece of art. We took all we had and held back nothing (monetarily and emotionally speaking) in the making of the record. And if you can believe this...the making of the record is said to be the easiest/cheapest part.

The record is called Mountain Sea and we have it recorded and produced by Joshua James, mixed by Todd Burke (No Doubt, Jack Johnson, Foo Fighters, Ben Harper), and mastered by Rick Fischer (Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine). But!... now comes the hard part.

The music industry is and has been falling apart. The job of "breaking" a band has unfortunately fallen into the lap of the bands themselves. We really believe in this band, we have currently lined up 2 tours across the United States (gas is averaging $4 a gallon). With your help we will be able to properly release, market, promote and publicize the new record.  All these things require much more money than we have.

NOW!...by no means are we looking for a handout. We are looking to make a trade. We have compiled a list of what we believe to be enticing incentives. Donate and get SOMETHING. In fact, donate, and get a whole BAG of things.

Simply put, we are asking for your help to make a good start at living our dreams. 

This would never be possible without you and we are SO grateful for your support!

Thank you!
