We've been making music together for over 17 years, self-produced several albums and toured all over the world. Most importantly we are about standing for our community, performing at benefits, teaching, coaching, inspiring and mentoring.
Now, we've just finished the most beautiful recording we have ever made, a full-length, 12-track album of original music. Multi-platinum producer, Bill Bottrell (Sheryl Crow, Tom Petty, Michael Jackson) produced the title track, and it was mastered by the best ears in the business, Paul Stubblebine. One of the tracks already won "Song of the Month" with BMI. Jenny even made the cover art for it herself.
The creative part is done, and now comes the equally important part of marketing it. We want to invite you to be our "Record Label." You can play a crucial part by creating a budget for promotion, distribution, advertising, and publicity. The reality is that we will probably spend another $10-$12,000., between costs of CD duplication, advertising, video, t-shirts, and printed material, so we are looking at your partnership as a partial subsidy. So if we are lucky enough to raise additional funds, they will definitely be put to good use.
CD duplication is about $2300. Radio promotion alone will cost $3,500. for a 3-month campaign, and that leaves a budget for internet marketing and advertising, with some left over for publicity.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a part of our project. Together, we can make this record fly!

Risks and challenges
There are always challenges and risks to any big undertaking, for example, we might not make it to #1 on the Americana charts, we might not sell out our shows, we might not sell ten thousand CDs. But we just might, too, especially with your contribution.
We are a stand for integrity, for being true to our word, for being an active presence in our community. We show up. And we know how to give it our all. With a proven track record of three previous independent CD releases under our belts, as well as booking, tour management and logistics for seven successful European tours, we know what it takes to deliver, and deliver on time. We thoroughly believe that we are prepared to take on this challenge and opportunity, otherwise we wouldn't have invited you to be a part of it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
