About this project

Who is the Gaze?

The Gaze is a dance-rock project concocted by singer and bassist Lewis Kuhlman. He wrote some ridiculously catchy songs and is committing them to vinyl with the help of drummer Steve Przybylinski and producer Andrew Zoellner at Shock and Audio.

Why skinny jeans?

This is what happens when you repeat something so much that it loses meaning, yet stays stuck in your head.  Try it: skinny jeans.  Linger on the S's: sskinny jeansssskinny jeanss. Now it's getting sexy.

What else is on the EP?

This extended play album will contain four songs: "Skinny Jeans", "Pocket Dial", and a remix of each song.

Why vinyl?

We're making records for DJs and other fine music appreciators. A 12" jacket is a much bigger canvas for awesome graphics. The album will be available via download as well.

Risks and challenges

We have some ambitious goals: 180 gram vinyl, awesome packaging with original silkscreened artwork, and numbered special editions. There are a lot of things that can go wrong as the project gets more complicated, but we know these risks are worth it.

Rewards include taking part in our music videos and an invitation to our record release party and after parties. These events have not been scheduled yet, but will happen in the coming months.

I will be working hard over the next month to organize art, music video, and record release. Everything may not be ready by March; we may have to call in some favors on the artwork and silkscreen; a lot can happen.

One thing is for sure, though. I'll be in touch regularly for updates.
