WHO WE ARE
St. Paul de Vence was born out of my grandfather’s life experience; coming of age under Occupation in Southern France during WWII, eventually joining the Free French Forces and fighting for the liberation of his country. It’s a universal story of heartbreak, loss, love and courage.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
We're making a new record that will showcase our best work yet; and as we bring these songs to life we have the support and creativity of producer Mychal Cohen (Campfire OK), and the beautiful and sonically unmatchable setting of London Bridge Studios.
In the two years since our debut album release we have evolved and grown; tightening our connectedness and creativity as performers, and expanding our sonic landscape. Our journey continues to bless us with radio play, world-wide record sales, and amazing performance opportunities. We could not be more grateful, and it's time to get back in the studio to make a record of where we are now.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We’re asking for your help in funding this project. Essentially, it works like a pre-sale, with a great line-up of rewards that we worked hard to create at all different pledge levels, so please check them out.
Also, Kickstarter is a crowd-funding resource, so we need a crowd to make this work. If you can share this page with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and such, it would be hugely helpful!
The privilege of being here, living the dream of making music, and asking you to help us bring this project to life is not lost on us. We are so grateful to you!

Risks and challenges
1. We have 30 days to reach our goal! That means letting a lot of people know this is happening and asking them to contribute. It won't be easy, but the hard work will be worth it. This Kickstarter will help us to pay for the very real costs of making a record, which include studio time and engineering, producer fees, performer pay, food & transportation, album art and layout, mixing, mastering, CD replication, vinyl pressing, shipping and more!
St. Paul de Vence is honored to be part of such a fantastic, supportive community and we are confident that together, with your support, we can make this project come to life.
2. From beginning to end, making a record can have many hurdles; scheduling, gear hiccups, good ideas that don't pan out well, a sore throat on vocal tracking days, a blizzard on shipping day, etc, etc.
Armed with a good sense of humor, perseverance, and creativity, no challenge in the studio, or in getting the record completed, printed and shipped is a crisis. We'll take each day at a time, drawing on our collective expertise and experience - and our amazing production and engineering team - and enjoy the process of making a great record.
We look forward to sharing it all with you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
