Our project has three parts:
1. Touring in Utah and Idaho this fall
2. Recording three new songs
3. Filming three new music videos
This fall, for the first time ever, Simply Three will be taking its show on the road! Through our own efforts, we have a tour lined up throughout Utah and Idaho. The majority of our time will be spent educating young student musicians. We will be teaching them important ensemble techniques, showing them new ways to be creative with their instruments, and inspiring them to keep following their dreams. We love teaching and inspiring the upcoming generation of musicians, and we can’t wait to do so in Utah and Idaho. On top of this, we will be performing several concerts in Salt Lake City, Provo, and Boise! These concerts will feature new compositions written for Simply Three as well as brand new arrangements of songs by Justin Timberlake, Macklemore, Michael Jackson, and more. With your help, we can make this tour a reality!
We have had the privilege of working with an amazing sound engineer, Paul Richards, and we can’t wait to work with him more. He has made his career recording some of the best musicians in the world. In addition to recording modern pop bands like The Roots, The Shins, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Paul has also recorded classical artists Yo-Yo Ma and Hilary Han. He is also on faculty at the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences here in Arizona. Since we have joined forces with him, we have access to some of the best recording spaces, equipment, and software that Arizona has to offer. And with your help, we can record, mix, and master three more songs.
The Music Videos
We feel so blessed to be surrounded by such talented people, and Jeremy Whited and Jake Groves are no exception. They did an incredible job filming our first official music video Rolling in the Deep (watch below). Since the video's release, Jeremy and Jake have been working hard on planning our next three videos. With your help, these next videos can be better than ever! We will be able to rent cranes for those breathtaking shots, have multiple locations for striking visual appeal, and we even have access to rent a RED Epic camera to achieve Hollywood, cinema-quality footage! We can’t wait to get started, and we truly appreciate your support!

Risks and challenges
We will stop at nothing to record, film, and go on tour! We are currently booking tour dates for the upcoming 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 seasons. We will make sure we book a show in your area!
We have a supportive group of family, friends, and colleagues that will help us make sure our project is completed once we are funded. And we carefully budgeted enough money for all merchandise prizes. Everything is set up, planned out, and in place to move forward and be successful! The only missing piece for us right now is the money; and with your help, this project can be a success!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
