About

QUIET HOUNDS

For the past eight years, immersed in the rich culture of Atlanta, Quiet Hounds has been creating art, stories, live concert experiences and most of all refreshing, inspired music. On the precipice of their sixth album release, this true “independent” artistic troupe has dug in again to create their most proud and evolved studio work to date.

WHAT WE’RE MAKING

We’re making an album! Yes! Its our 6th record! This is our favorite thing in the world to do! We have a theme, we have a name, and honestly we have a lot of the work already done. But after we finish making the album, the real work begins. 

In today’s world you have to put a lot of resources behind your music just to get it noticed or even heard by your existing fan base. So what do we need? 


WE NEED YOUR HELP TO PACKAGE, PROMOTE & PUBLICIZE

The most asked question we receive about our band is: “Why aren’t you guys bigger?” Here is the truthful answer to that. We are a homegrown effort. We’ve been working full-time day jobs since QH began. We have to grow this beautiful thing that we love so much in the cracks. If we’re lucky, we break even.

We are still doing this because we love it and believe in it. We are still doing this because you all love it and believe in it. It’s the support from friends, family and fans that keeps us moving. As a matter of fact, we are more excited than ever about the new music we have to share with you all. 

But we want to do more! We have music to create, we believe that the world will love it, and  we want you to be a part of releasing it into the wild. So please consider helping us reach our goal to get this record heard. If the collective voice sings together, it can’t be ignored!

WHAT YOU’RE HELPING TO FUND

  • Design, packaging and production of the digital and physical versions of the album.
  • A radio campaign. Our partners at Shine On are helping us develop a strategy to be heard on AAA and college radio.
  • Publicity. We need someone in the industry with connections to get our music written and talked about. 
  • A marketing campaign. Our drummer Brad has laid out a killer plan to get our music noticed through google, facebook, youtube, instagram, spotify, apple and more… and in today’s crowded media world it’s a lot of paid advertising.
  • Resources to get us out for live appearances in new markets to support our radio campaign.

You’ll be helping to give the Quiet Hounds music a true shot at being heard around the globe in a meaningful way.

Thanks so much for reading through this far. Again, we're super stoked about this record and hope you've enjoyed listening to our music as much as we've enjoyed making it. We love you, and thank you in advance for your support!

Much love,

Risks and challenges

There is a chance there could be delays in shipping on physical items. Specifically the masks could take a minute since they are hand crafted. However, we already have wheels in motion to insure we ship on time.

We'll work with backers at the top levels to coordinate any acoustic performances. We've given a December 2019 date to fulfill those but we can also arrange those for 2020 if its more convenient. We'll be flexible in those regards to fulfill our obligations.
