Meet Spooky & The Truth...
Spooky has been writing and performing as a solo artist and alongside other groups for over a decade and released his first collection of original songs in last year's "Wit of the Staircase". The entire album was recorded in his apartment, where he performed the majority of the instrumentation. He then set off on a summer of touring throughout the East Coast to promote it's release. While on the road, Spooky desired to perform his music as it was heard on the album, hoping that the audience would experience the songs as they were honestly meant to be. It was then that Spooky came upon "The Truth".
Spooky gathered some of the best session musicians in Philadelphia and not only introduced "The Truth" to Spooky's catalog, but also wrote a new collection of originals. Now that "The Truth" has set Spooky free, it's time to do it right.
Spooky & The Truth create a smoky fusion of familiar pop elements with a personal strain of Americana that they coined, "City Folk". The Truth's minimal performance style is both intimate and powerful, bittersweet and inspiring. Spooky pens openhearted songs with lyrics that explore broad themes of innocence lost, mingled with stories of hope and redemption. It is only appropriate that this album be named after the music they create. "City Folk" offers, songs that are relatable and enjoyable by anyone today with a hauntingly familiar recollection of simpler times, be they real or imagined.
Spooky & The Truth have partnered with the Philadelphia Recording Company to produce the first two "City Folk" singles. The Band has also committed to a month long European tour in support of the new Album. In this last year Spooky & The Truth have come far, but in order to finish the album and continue the journey we NEED YOUR HELP.
All that we have done to this point has been "DIY", everything from album art, to booking and promoting our shows, to screen-printing our own merch has been done by the band and team Spooky. We bring that same "DIY" mindset into the studio however, as independent artists that can get quite pricey.
Spooky & The Truth have already put in a great deal of time and money into this project, and are perilously close to finishing, a mere $2,300. away from reaching our goal. With your donation we will be able to finish the recording process, cover the hefty cost of mixing and mastering, assist in physically and digitally distributing the album, and help us support "City Folk" along our way to a town (or country) near you.
