Friends,

You've been supporting The Pushovers at our live shows for years and now the future of rock and roll is in your hands.

Your support for this project will allow us to take it from amateur recording to professional album. Producing an album involves many steps:
-Writing (already done!)
-Recording guitar, bass, drums, vocals, and everything in between (1/2 done!)
-Mixing (we're planning to work with Mark Alan Miller at Sonelab Studios)
-Mastering (to make it sound just right)
-Artwork (Rachel Bone original--almost done!)
-Printing (how many should we order? what type of packaging? how many panels? can we afford vinyl? your support helps us make these decisions) 
-Publicity (mailers to reviewers and other big-time folks)

When you support this album, we will thank you with tokens of our appreciation. But, more importantly, you will become an active producer, helping us get from one step to the next. 

We thank you for all of your support over the years and look forward to working together to create something you can take home in those hot little hands. 

Love,
The Pushovers
Mara, Nancy, & Liz

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenges are distance and time. We are a Long Distance Band (LDB), and therefore have to schedule our recording sessions for long weekends and other quick trips. Mixing and mastering will be equally difficult to schedule, so the project may take some time to complete. But it WILL get finished, and it WILL be amazing.
