About

What We've Been Up To

Almost exactly one year ago, in April of 2018, we began the journey of recording our first, full length record. As most of you already know, we'd been playing together for about two full years at this point. We had nearly enough material already, so we decided it was time to start getting to work.

Luckily for us, the search for a studio and engineer was extremely smooth. Our drummer, Josh Vogeler, had previously recorded his solo record at the Fort Collins based Stout Studios, and after meeting with sound engineer Darren Radach and touring his facility, we decided that was the studio where we were going to get started.

We took the process step by step, because we really didn't want to rush anything, or settle for anything less than what our goal was. We were also still maintaining our normal schedule and playing gigs on weekends more often than not. So over the course of the next eight months, we knocked out a good majority of the record, and the thing started to really take shape.  We think the final product totally captures what we encompass as six individuals playing together as one, and we certainly hope you feel the same.

What We're Doing 

Now that we're all wrapped up, there's still so much work to be done to successfully release our debut, full length album, 'Carousel'

We're proud to say that we've fully funded the entire album our selves. The recording, the mixing, and the mastering, is all taken care of. The next step includes registering online and adding to notable music listening platforms like iTunes, Spotify, and Bandcamp, pressing physical copies, proper marketing and promotion, and touring in support of the release. All of that combined is likely going to cost about the same or even more than the cost of creating the record, and that's why we've decided to invite you along for the ride.

Your contributions mean the absolute world to us. I think most people nowadays understand that the music industry has changed with the evolution of the internet and internet services, and it's harder for us to make a dime. All six of us are some of the biggest music fans you'll ever meet, and we do what we can to support the artists and musicians we love. We invite you to contribute the support needed to take this album, and this band, to the next level. You all have helped us get to where we are, and we believe the future holds much more for all of us, including you!

Where We're Headed

In a couple of weeks, we'll be announcing a full Spring tour in support of this project, and we couldn't be more excited. We've teamed up with the guys at Purchase Productions and have booked more than 20 shows between Colorado and the east coast. We've just purchased a new tour vehicle, and fuel expenses, occasional lodging, and any surprises that come along with living on the road, will all start stacking up, and although we will be making money on tour, we want to be prepared. It's going to a dream come true for all of us to be out there, playing our music for thousands of people and in different cities every night, and although it will likely be a challenge, we're ready for anything.

Our Thanks and Appreciation

Whether you contribute $10 or $1000, have been to 4 shows or 100 shows, we're grateful for all that you have done, are doing, and continue to do for us. We love this giant family that has formed over the last two years, and look forward to so much more. From all six of us, THANK YOU!

Risks and challenges

We understand that $6000 is a lot of money to ask for. Money that is worked hard for, and maybe even saved for a very, very long time. That being said, every penny we raise is going into building our brand and continuing to focus on creating, playing, and releasing quality music that we care very much about. It's going to take a lot of work, a lot of patience, many sleepless nights, and a lot of perseverance to get to where we want to go, but we're ready, and we know your love and support is real.
