Initial Goal Reached!!! Phase 2- Album Promotion . $30K total
We are thrilled to announce that thanks to your support we have reached our $20 K goal!! We can now get this album printed and share it with the world because of your help. We thank you from the bottom of hearts and will never forget all of you that became backers in this project.
We still have some time left in the Kickstarter timeline. Therefore, for phase 2 of the project we are going to focus on continuing to raise funds to pay for promotion of the album so that the world can hear it. We will be touring this album and selling it at shows, we will also be spending money on newspaper, radio and social media.
We are now shooting for a total of $30 K so that we can use the extra $10 K for much needed funds to help us promote Juniper Mountain.
Juniper Mountain album release- Take 2
In October 2017 we started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for our new album Juniper Mountain. One week into the campaign, after raising 25% of our goal, we canceled the project as a result of the Northbay fires that devastated our home community of Sonoma County California. Instead, we decided to concentrate our efforts on rebuilding and raising funds for our friends, fans, and family that were in desperate need of help.
We are thrilled to announce that after much hard work and deliberation, we are now ready to get back on the Whiskey Wagon and finish our album. Now more than ever we need the help of our community to help us realize our goal. Juniper Mountain is by far our most artistic, profound, and best album to date. We are excited to invite you to be a part of this momentous occasion by helping us release it to the world!!
Juniper Mountain is our 7th album in our 16-year history as a band. Traditionally we have always self-funded and produced our own cd's in our home studio. This album is our magnum opus and therefore we felt it necessary to utilize the expertise of a professional studio and sound engineer. We have hibernated much of the year at the incredible "Tiny Telephone Studios" in San Francisco, where the entire album was recorded analog (non digital) and produced like our favorite albums of the 60's and 70's.
Juniper Mountain is a concept album set in the Civil War era of American History. We have been working on and writing the songs for this album for almost two decades. The album focuses on the universal themes of the human condition; love, loss, and most of all, hope. Now more than ever we feel that the time is right to release this album. The world needs more HOPE!!
