About

Howdy Do! 

The day is nigh, it is time for Laney Lou and the Bird Dogs to record our first full length Studio Album! We are beginning our fundraiser with high hopes we can extend our reach from the Pacific Northwest to the entire nation. We have been staying busy over the last 5 years, beginning as a bar band in 2013 to now touring the western United States with a clear intent, and have watched our fan base grow in every town and city that we visit! LLBD is now a full-time gig for the 5 of us.

If you are new to the flavor of Laney Lou and the Bird Dogs, we have been described as "writing songs that rhyme" since the earlier part of the decade. An incredibly energetic five piece string band, LLBD has enjoyed bringing the Montana free spirit to other parts of this wonderful country! (Please visit our website for a full bio.)

We would love nothing more than to make you a personal part of this creative journey upon which we have embarked. This fundraiser is the perfect way to be a member of the band! Your support will not only put you on "the list," but will also fund the recording, mixing, mastering, production, and distribution of this new album. 

We come to you with humility and hopefulness that, together, we can make this a major success. Everything that we produce, merchandise to music, is made with love by your very own Bird Dogs. We have created a never seen before, unique merchandise line to include as a gift for your varying levels of donation. Please glance over our list of incentives to the right, and know that every dollar is incredibly appreciated and every little bit helps us get closer to our goal!

With Love and Gratitude,

Laney Lou & The Bird Dogs

Risks and challenges

If we fail to raise the funds to complete this album, it will take us many more years to achieve the quality in a recorded album that we feel you deserve and that best represents our sound. The songs have been written and we have the means to travel to a recording studio, as well as all of the equipment necessary. We are investing all of our time into this project and the last step is getting the financial backing!
