From the moment my wife, Jen, and I met, we shared our love of music together.  We enjoyed going to shows, discovering new music, singing together, and writing songs. This shared interest created a bond between us that felt creative and fun. Now we are excited to be doing our first musical project together – And we need your help! 

Many costs are associated with creating a project like this. Luckily my experience completing two successfully funded albums with Trout Steak Revival has given me a lot of insight into this process.  Our expenses include studio costs, mixing & mastering, printing, album art, videos, and small business start-up costs. The overall goals are to keep expenses low, to maximize your Kickstarter dollars, and to focus on releasing the music. 

We believe in these songs. They were fundamental to building our relationship and they mean the world to us. With your support, friends and family, we can share this collaboration of songs and music with you!

Here are some of the fun rewards we created for this project:

Risks and challenges

The Magnolia North project is currently being mixed. After mixing is finished, we will send it to our mastering engineer for the finishing touches. After that, we will duplicate the album on CD and send it away for streaming to Apple Music and Spotify.

Just in case you're not familiar with Kickstarter, it operates on an all-or-nothing funding model -- we have 30 days to raise our goal of $10,125. If we don’t make it, the money is returned to you! So we really need your help.

Thank you so much for your gifts toward this project. Your support motivates us and makes all of our creative energy possible. Please help us spread the word by sharing www.HELPMAGNOLIANORTH.com on your Facebook page. Many thanks and much love!
