Once upon a time, bands would look to record labels to support and build an artist’s career. Oh, how times have changed.

Over the past three years, Screen Door Porch has been fortunate enough to record our first full-length album (fortunately named to 5 "Best-of" Lists), tour across the country four times, and play incredible shows and festivals with some of the most talented musicians in the land. Most of all, we have been charmed by fans and new friends that we have met along the way. YOU make all the difference.

This is why we are partnering with Kickstarter to help fund our sophomore album, The Fate & The Fruit (due May 2012), and asking fans for their support. The studio time is done, mixing is complete, mastering and artwork are in motion. We are so proud of this new album and cannot wait for every one of you to hear it. BUT...we need help.

We are a true DIY machine. After writing the songs and rehearsing, we book gigs, promote our albums, manage the website, design concert flyers and web materials and on the best days, PLAY shows! We like being DIY because it means we keep 100% creative control and ownership of our music. What's not so glamorous and sometimes stressful is figuring out how to fund the many facets of a quality studio album.

First, there's the studio time. Then a mixing engineer, a mastering engineer, a graphic design artist, the actual CD duplication, and if we're lucky, marketing and promotion.

We are launching this campaign in the hopes that our fans and friends will share in this creative journey, becoming a part of The Fate & The Fruit. The total cost of our album will be over twice the amount of our campaign goal, but we feel that $4,000 is a realistic amount that you can help us reach! Every dollar raised will go directly towards the mastering, production and promotion of this album. This is an "all-or-none" platform - we can raise any amount over $4,000, but not a dollar less.

We have chosen 10 unique reward packages for your pledges, so please look them over and pledge what feels comfortable.

We could not continue on this musical path without you, so THANK YOU for your generosity. We can't wait to share these twelve new songs!

A little more about 'The Fate & The Fruit'...

In November, we returned to Ramble Creek Studio in Austin, Texas; the same studio that inspired our first album, Screen Door Porch. The choice to return was easy - the cozy vibe, top-notch recording gear, and strong chemistry with engineer/co-producer Britton Beisenherz made us feel comfortable and confident. That same inspiration sparked so many special moments while recording The Fate & The Fruit. In our minds, this batch of songs and how they were recorded is a perfect progression. Thanks for being a part of it!
