First Annual Meeting of Optimists Vol. 2?

Where's Vol. 1?!?

Well, we wanted to show you that we were serious about the project, so Vol. 1 is already completed. In fact, we've included it as a reward for helping fund the production of Vol. 2!

Here's our vision: We have a total of 13 new songs that we're planning to release for the First Annual Meeting of Optimists project. In late March 2019, we spent a few days with Dan Precision at The Bombshelter in Chicago recording, and then a couple of weeks talking, texting, and emailing until the mixes were complete. We are tentatively scheduled to return in September to knock out (or rock out) whatever tracks we're able to fund through this campaign.

We see this Vol. 2 campaign going one of several ways...

1. We fail and nobody gets to hear the other 10 songs. :-(

2. We fund Vol. 2 and start the same cycle over in October for Vol. 3.

3. We double our goal & fund Vol. 2 and 3 and start the same cycle over in October for Vol. 4

4. We DOMINATE our goal & fund Vol. 2-4... then we can start finishing the songs that are coming out after these (Seriously, they are already started).

We will be thrilled if you're able to help us start with #2!

Risks and challenges

Besides natural hazards outside of human control, the only potential risks or challenges for this project would be illness or equipment malfunction during the recording sessions or the schedule of our mix engineer.

Here's a good spot to mention that First Annual Meeting of Optimists Vol. 1 is already completed and there is an established procedure for what we're trying to accomplish. Also, we're scheduled to return to the studio for several days beginning September 20 and already have a place to stay. With your help, we've got this. Can we borrow, like, five bucks?
