Ian Alexy who is best known for his work with Americana group Hobo Nephews Of Uncle Frank, is releasing a new record with his backing group The Deserters tentatively titled "Into The Night." The music is a continuation of his solo work, which we last heard on his 2012 release "Born On The Day Of The Dead." Much of that record was performed by Ian Alexy himself, playing multiple instruments. The difference this time is that the music was played by the band live in the studio. This allows for the musicians to react together and gives the songs real dynamics and sonics that can't be created artificially. There were also overdubs done to enrich the arrangements, but the bulk of what you hear including the much of the lead vocals was recorded live in the studio. Ian Alexy And The Deserters includes Dave Mehling from Minneapolis group The Fontanelles on Keyboards and guitars. Drummer Mike Cini and bassist Johnnie Timm are best known for their work with superstar vocalist Nicholas David.
The new EP "Into The Night" includes some of Ian's most popular songs from his live sets of the past couple years, like Misfits In Love and 1988. The EP was recorded by producer Dylan Nau, who is best known for his work with twin cities artists Apollo Cobra and Nicholas David.

Risks and challenges
The mastering of the record, and the artwork for the album cover are still in progress. Your contributions will directly fund these aspects of the release and will pay the artists that are creating the work.
Assuming we reach our goal, we will have about six to eight weeks time to have the album printed and have all of the orders filled. We are also hoping that the record will be ready for our release concerts in December.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
