About this project

After nearly a year and a half of traveling all over the East Coast we're finally ready to release our 5 song EP!  Our aim with the EP is not to paint a pretty picture of what life should be like, rather, through our music, relay our own experiences of life's ups and downs. Our EP expresses and acknowledges the brokenness, disappointment, and grief that we all seem to identify with as humans.  It's about his promise to us of forgiveness, grace, and love.  Our EP struggles to make sense of regret, complacency, and pain while revealing the hope there is that Jesus came to turn that same pain into something refreshing and life giving as he pushes us towards lives that are full of joy. Despite our present trials and sufferings, our shortcomings and failures, we truly believe God is at work in redeeming His creation. That somehow He can remake us, shape us, and even cause us to overflow during the most desperate times, when he seems so far away.  Each of us has a story. Through the story of this EP we hope to give people the same hope we hold in Christ. This is an EP of hope, of redemption, and of the beautiful life we are offered in Him.

FAQ

  • The pledge money we receive at the end of this campaign will go towards numerous things: first, the mixing and mastering of the album (the mastering of the album will be done by a professional studio to ensure the highest and best quality). The money will also be used towards the artwork and production of physical copies of the EP. In addition we'll also be paying for all of the various gifts that come with the pledges (tshirts, posters, pins, ect.). Lastly we'll be paying services like iTunes, amazon, spotify, ect. to make our music more readily acceptable on through these sites. All of this adds up to more than we can produce on our, which is why we need your help - we couldn't do it without you.
