About this project

Hey, you! Thanks for stopping by our Kickstarter project.  We're excited to have this opportunity to make our first EP a knock-out, but we can't do it without the help and contributions of our friends, families and fans.

This November, we will be hitting the studio to record our first 4 song EP entitled Sea Legs. The following tracks will be featured on the EP:

  • Everything, Nothing             
  • The Hook
  • Open Book
  • I Was An Island

Two days in the studio is going to run us about $600, plus we have the costs of producing and mastering the songs as well as buying the physical hard-copies of the cds. The total cost we will be confronted with is estimated to be slightly higher than $1,000, but we wanted to keep our goal modest and achievable. We've chosen to do things as DIY as possible in order to reduce costs as well as maintain our own character and personal touch in everything that we produce.

That said, anything that you get from us through this Kickstarter campaign has been designed and created with love by one of the band members or by our close friend and artist, Judith Gammons (who is donating her talent to produce one of the art print versions).

Examples of what we have in store for you:

One-of-a-kind Printed Journal & da button pack

Ampersand Map Print by [drummer!] Summer Wood

One-of-a-kind handmade drawings by artist Judith Gammons
