Launched in 2009, as a rock-based acoustic brother duo, Ottopilot is rapidly becoming a lucrative act to follow. Their dynamic, acoustic, pop-rock feel, sets them apart from the typical garage jam band. The Brothers are enjoying moderate success at the moment by sharing the stage with impressive acts such as Mat Kearney, Gavin Degraw, The Bengels, Huey Lewis and the News, Michelle Branch, Sugar Ray and the list goes on. 

Hello OTTOPILOT fans.

Thanks so much for taking the time to check out our KickStarter. These last few years have been filled with amazing opportunities and challenging struggles that have helped shape us into the musicians we are today. We are working on releasing our first 8 track debut album. Typically, a record label provides the funding for an artist to record and release a record, but since we are independent artists, we need your help! :) There is a lot involved in making a record, especially as independent artists, so we have put together a budget of $18,000 to cover all the expenses including.. 

• Studio Time

 • Production, Engineering 

• Professional Studio Musicians

 • Mixing and Mastering • Album art work 

• CD duplication/manufacturing 

• Marketing and Promotion 

How can you help?

We have put together a list of unique incentives that are only available for 40 days. Please help us spread the word to your friends, family, co-workers, etc. 

We can't thank you enough for the support you've already shown. Writing and performing music has been a dream come true and we are excited to keep moving forward with this new record.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge with this project is the time and money it takes to record an awesome album. Shortly after our successful campaign ends, we our scheduled to start recording. We will continue to update our backers with progress videos, sample music, and much more!
