My name is Kyle Shutt, and you may know me from my years raising hell with The Sword, or from turning Pink Floyd upside down with Doom Side of the Moon, or from sitting a the Draughthouse bar.  No matter where you know me from, you probably know that I love a cold beer and playing the hell out of the guitar.  

What you probably don’t know is that I love producing albums and rolling up my sleeves to tackle big challenges.  While wondering what to do with a mountain of material not necessarily fit for any band that I am in, I heard a tiny, very loud voice telling me to make a solo album in that very sense, solo!  I’ll be hitting those drums, slapping that bass, singing those lyrics, and absolutely shredding that guitar.  If there’s something that makes a noise I like, I’m playing it.

Now, while making albums is a load of fun, it’s also a load of work that, in 2018 doesn’t come cheap.  That’s why I thought I’d ask you all be a part of the launching of this wacky solo career, which isn’t just stopping with this initial album.  I’m starting with this record and will go wherever my inspiration takes me.  Packages include sick colored vinyl variants, test pressings, studio drop ins, badass baseball tees, hell, I’ll even fly to your hometown to hand deliver your record or hang at your favorite brewery or cover any song of your choosing.  Every record purchased will be hand packaged by me and sent with love.  

It‘s not easy being an artist these days, and I truly couldn’t do this without your support, so if you have the faith in me to do my part in saving rock ’n’ roll, pick up a record and a shirt and LET’S DO THIS THING!

Risks and challenges

Everyone knows vinyl takes forever to manufacture, so I’ve chosen May 6, which happens to be my birthday as the release date, since that will give us all plenty of time to produce this record and have it mixed, mastered, sent to press and ready for your needles! I work hard and I work fast and, trust me, this is the soonest I can have these records available.
Shipping worldwide is very pricey, but I’m doing it just for y’all, the only cost that may sneak up is whatever customs charge that your country of residence will apply to the record. There is nothing I can do about that, you have been warned!
The goal, if met, will be going to manufacturing all physical products, studio time, and travel and transport while making the album. The goal, if exceeded, will be met with stretch goals to possibly make a video or additional vinyl pressings, so please, spread the word and let’s create this experience together!
