Help Otherwhile Record Their First Album!

$12,065

167

Otherwhile is made up of members Alexandra Lawn (Vocals, Cello), Elizabeth Palmer (Guitar, Vocals), Stefan Macarewich (Drums, Vocals, Production), and Paige Conners (Bass, Vocals). Elizabeth and Paige, sisters, had been playing music together since before they can remember.  By chance, luck, or magic, we all met teaching at a local music school. It was pretty off the bat when we discovered that we loved making music together. Every member being individually obsessed with all things music-- nerding, strumming, creating, geeking, singing, performing, teaching, listening, humming (it just keeps going); allowed our collective as Otherwhile to fall into a musical place that felt very natural and enjoyable.

 We began meeting up in Stefan's garage every opportunity we had. In between knife throwing practice and guacamole, we started making songs that would get stuck in our heads and make us dance. With a definite throwback angle to 70s and 80s pop, Otherwhile finds itself akin to Fleetwood Mac and The Pretenders, while implementing unique sounds and songwriting via cello, production, and general enthusiasm to find/do new things. 

We started playing shows and that bumped everything in the fun department up even more, and now, we really wanna do this!

This is where you come in! It's time for us to take the next step with our music as a band. We have some serious bangers of tunes and would love nothing more than to lay them down, real good, and share them with everyone. We need to put in the appropriate time and money to ensure this is done to the very best level we can provide. If we raise enough money we will be recording at Sunset Sound Studio 3 where we will then spend hours and sweat and love and everything we have into making this a damn fine album. 

Every donation helps in reaching our goal, no matter how small, and we cannot thank you enough in advance just for even taking the time to read this and believe in us. 

Much love, 

Otherwhile

Risks and challenges

Speedbumps, detours, flat tires, and busted transmissions can be part of any long road trip, but so are hole in the wall "Best Ribs You'll Ever Have" discoveries, singing along to sweet jams til your voice is gone, making memories with close buds and family, and seeing the beautiful open road! We don't always know when things are going to happen and not go according to plan, but what we do know is that we are more than capable of HANDLING it. We are a group of hardworking individuals who get it done, and things will always be fixed or even work out for the better. We are ready to take this on, hop in!
