About

Mark and Loren first met at the Soundquest Fest music festival in Tucson, Arizona, in 2010. Both were participating as solo artists. The two decided at the last moment to try playing together during Loren's set. It went over well and people afterward suggested that the two should collaborate together some more.  They decided that it was a great idea and started  working on what became the album ‘Tree of Life’ to much success.  

Now, for the past year Loren and Mark have been working on their follow up to ‘Tree of Life’ called ‘Cave Dwellers’. It is over two hours of droned, atmospheric, world music that explores the depth of your imagination, taking you on a journey through our oldest known habitats, the caves of our ancestors.  Loren and Mark would like to make you curious and enlist your support for our Kickstarter Campaign, to see this album to it's completion. Please consider making a pledge to manifest ‘Cave Dwellers’ into musical reality.

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter campaign together. It’s an interesting experiment nowadays to put out physical CDs because of all the changes in the music industry. Since we’re excited about ‘Cave Dwellers’ and we want to make sure and get it out to you, we have kept our goal comparably low to increase chances.

Kickstarter will fund this campaign if we reach the $4500 goal, so each and every one of your pledges makes a difference. No matter what you feel like contributing, it helps make this album happen, and we are confident that you’ll like what you will receive for your pledge.

Thank you for your support and enthusiasm for what we've created over the past 30+ years. We look forward to making this double CD ‘Cave Dwellers’ happen together with you.

Thank you, Loren & Mark
