Welcome to the Softwave Kickstarter project!

"We want to share our music with the world and those who already believe in us and want more, will now have the opportunity to support our future and always be remembered. With your support we can be able to afford our upcoming music production, music videos, Europe tour in 2018 and merchandise. Without our music Softwave wouldn't exist but without your support we couldn't have come that far as we are today. TOGETHER WE WILL PRODUCE SOFTWAVES!" - Catrine (Softwave)

For this project, Synth-pop music duo Softwave are raising funds to record, mix and master their first full length album during 2018.

You have the exclusive opportunity here to order Softwave's first EP Together Alone on CD together with it's companion release Together Alone The Remixes on CD - both exclusively manufactured for this Kickstarter project by British independent record label Pink Dolphin Music Ltd. You can order an exclusively printed t-shirt and even a handful of Softwave stickers to adorn your favourite things! Even get your name on a European festival guest list or on the sleeve of the band's next album.

Influenced heavily by British Synth-pop legends Erasure, listen to 3 tracks from Together Alone right here and enjoy their superb, energised sound:

What will the funds raised by this project be used for?

Catrine and Jerry will be heading into the studio for the first part of 2018 to record their debut full length album. Filled with brand new specially written songs, this new album will showcase their on-stage energy, Catrine's supreme sense of melody and Jerry's intricate synths. The funds raised here will pay for the recording of the album, plus the post-production work of mixing and mastering ready to bring the music to you!

Costs for CDs and merchandise: £1,169

Recording costs (including mix and master): £1,782

Any extra money raised will help them pay for transport costs for a tour and various festival performances around Europe.

Softwave was established back in 2014 by the synth-specialist, Jerry Olsen and singer, Catrine Christensen. The duo is unsigned and uses DIY methods with great help from supporters around the World. Together they create a great combination of Jerry’s catchy melodic synth sounds, and the emotional expression of the adorable singer and songwriter, Catrine. Nice and easy the band follows the “waves” of progress in the music industry and for each wave they pass they reach new heights.

Together they built their own soundproof studio. This was a revolution and their first step into the music industry - Blue Orange Studio.

In 2015 they finished producing their first tracks ever. Softwave's debut concert was in a local library and after that day everything went fast.

Summer 2016 the debut EP Together Alone was released on all digital stores. Softwave was discovered by several DJ's, promoters and radio hosts from around the World.

A huge new music network supported Softwave and today Artefaktor Radio from Mexico City is one of Softwave’s greatest supporters who regularly play Softwave's music. On And On And On became their best track so far and has been ranked many times as the most played song in 2016 by different radiostations. Special thanks to Renato.

Softwave released a remix compilation in February 2017 as a result of their international support. One month later their first music video had its world premiere. The video idea was Softwaves own but produced by Stefan Kragh, founder of Muvi Productions, who once produced a Universal Music video.

Risks and challenges

If successfully funded, the main risk and challenge will be the manufacture of CDs and t-shirts.
All physical items artwork and audio files will be gathered, prepared and approved at the same time that Kickstarter is collecting payments and sending the total amount earned to us.
As soon as payment is received, manufacture will begin. I expect this to take no longer than 4 weeks.
The only risk is if manufacturing takes slightly longer. This will then slightly delay your items. However, this would be a rare occurence.
