About


In July 2019, SAR assembled in Dayton, Ohio with two guest musicians and engineer Joel Crawford to record some of our favorite music. Over two days and 9 1/2 hours of session time, we recorded tracks that our friends Tyler Kline, Benjamin D. Whiting, Ian Wiese and Adam Schumaker wrote for us, as well as our own arrangement of Piazzolla's "Four Seasons of Buenos Aires." Now we are entering the editing phase, and our FIRST ALBUM will be released in 2020! We NEED your support to help make this album happen.

The total cost of this album will be approximately $4,000. We're already raised $500 in private donations and expect to raise at least $500 more, so we were able to reduce the amount we need to raise through Kickstarter. The expenses in producing an album include travel, accommodations, recording and editing fees (we have an incredible engineer on board in Joel Crawford Recording!), CD design, CD production, and mechanical licenses.

We can't stress how much fun we had recording this album with our dear friends Andrea Baker (bassoon) and Wolcott Humphrey (clarinet), two absolutely outstanding musicians. We believe in the music we're making, and your support would mean everything to make this project a reality. Thanks so much!

Risks and challenges

We're taking a risk on this project by funding through Kickstarter. On this platform, we only get this money if we meet our goal of $3,000. However, the music is already recorded, and we're excited to bring it to you soon!
