About

After a busy year of releasing our first EP, touring the country, writing, recording & releasing two singles, pouring our hearts & souls into our music and building the LVDYMOB, it's time for a full-length album.

But for us, LVDY is more than music. It’s a feeling; it’s a community; it’s a place of belonging; it’s a movement. We write songs that expose our hearts, connect us back to our bodies and nature, and always come back to gratitude. We would be delighted to have you join the LVDY “Gold” journey.

Headlining a SOLD OUT show at The Larimer Lounge - March 14, 2019
Playing a pop-up show at Invisible City in Denver, CO - July 2019

It all started in the fall of 2012 studying abroad in Dunedin, New Zealand. 

It took us approximately 5 seconds to realize we were going to be the best of friends. We met as juniors in college, fell in friend love, adventured around that beautiful country, and started building the foundation of our friendship. We sang cover songs together in our cold NZ flats, on front porches, and in the kitchens and living rooms of friends and family. "Rivers & Roads" by The Head & The Heart was the only song we knew together for a long time. And we played it over and over and over.

Trekking around Stewart Island off the South Coast of New Zealand

Over the years we talked about our dreams of traveling the world and pursuing music. It always seemed like a distant possibility.  

What started as late night kitchen jam sessions, open mics, and groovy covers turned into original tunes that sparked a musical connection we couldn’t deny. When timing and the stars aligned 6 years later, LVDY was born. 

Our very first time busking on 16th St. in Denver - Nov 18, 2017

In the last year and a half, we have seen this project soar to heights we could have only dreamed of. From street corners to bars to backyards to weddings to living rooms to jungle bungalows in Mexico and even to Coors Field. From opening for bands like Joseph and LÉON, to our own sold out shows, to our first (and then second, third and fourth) tour around the US, to our first festival and beyond... We are confident the next year has some incredible things in store for us. And for you, our LVDYMOB.

The Underground Music Showcase, our first music festival - July 26, 2019
Opening for LÉON at The Summit in Denver, CO - May 2019.


Headed to Boston for the first show of our northeast tour - May 2019.

So, what's next for LVDY?

So far, we have self-funded, self-booked, self-marketed, and self-executed every piece of this business. But, we are far from building this vision alone. Every single friend, family member, contact, and connection joining the LVDYMOB has allowed us to dream bigger. Because of the ever-growing support from our incredible community, we feel confident to release this album independently. The mission of this Kickstarter is to keep the “Gold” alive and provide us the financial resources needed to continue to pursue LVDY at the highest level. Join us on our journey.

What are you contributing to?

The recording, producing, mixing, and mastering of our first full-length album.

A tour around the album - flights/transportation, food, gas, accommodations.

Advertisement/Promotion/Marketing for both the album and the tour.

Added production & equipment.

A crew! A manager, booking agent, photographer, videographer and a merch lvdy to travel with us.

New merch line - we have some epic ideas up our sleeves.

Risks and challenges

Being an independent artist means our art is only possible if our audience (you) helps us make it. As with any Kickstarter, if we don't raise the goal we're trying to reach then we don’t get any of the money. It's a risk we're willing to take and no matter what, we will keep working hard to make the music we love.

With Deep Appreciation,
Aubrey & Kathleen
