We are heading into the studio with 4 GUEST MUSICIANS to make our third album - over 10 new songs!!
Hi friends! My Gay Banjo here. We are pre-selling our new album, "COUNTRY BOYS IN THE CITY", and offering other dazzling prizes for people who help us raise the funds to finish this really fun and exciting project. Help us bring music to your ears!
We will be joined by musicians that we really love and respect:
- YOSI PERLSTEIN (HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF) - percussion & fiddle
- ANNA CALLNER (CHRIS GARNEAU, MNP with SHANTELL MARTIN) - cello
- ELANA REDFIELD (KAREN & THE SORROWS) - pedal steel
- TODD CHANDLER (DARK DARK DARK) - bass
We are also super psyched to be working with sound engineer KYLE PULLEY (DANGEROUS PONIES) through his studio (THE HEADROOM) and in live spaces, like living rooms and churches.
Here is a video from March of the album's title track. We're adding bass, fiddle and percussion!

See "If We Pass Our Goal..." below for info about how we will spend any funds over the $2,500 goal.
If We Pass Our Goal...
We are fundraising only for the bare bones costs of making this album - if we raise more money...
- We can add more finishing touches in the studio, as needed.
- We can include lyrics, more photos, and more art in our CD jacket.
- We can put it towards our “Country Boys in the City” tour, allowing us to visit more towns and make more cds, t-shirts,bags, etc.

Risks and challenges
We have already started recording the songs. We are expecting to release the album in February, but sometimes making music takes longer than expected. If there are any delays we’ll keep everyone posted and we’ll be working hard/playing hard to get it done.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us in the past - coming out to our shows, buying our CDs, setting up gigs for/with us, letting us stay at your house on tour, and telling your friends about us. We really really appreciate it! We did not expect to be playing shows outside of our own living room, and now look. It’s thanks to you. Thank you for continuing your support of our music with a pledge and/or for passing this link along to your friends.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
