The Blind Owl Band's follow up to 2012's "Rabble Rousing".  Since the release of the bands debut effort, the band has spent their time on the road gigging 2 to 5 shows a week. (Playing over 150 shows since the 2012 release)  All this playing has pushed the professionalism of the band, the skill level and sound to new boundaries and will be shown in The Blind Owl Band upcoming recording.   

The Blind Owl Band returned the Granary Studio in Morrisonville, NY in March and April 2013 to recorded 13 unreleased original tracks.  Larry Dolan, is returning as producer on this album. This album was recorded in a more isolated fashion then the last.  This has brought the sound of the album to a new level in the same recording space.  The songs feature songs that were born within the walls of the Granary recording studio during the recording of "Rabble Rousing" in the fall of 2011 such as "Jazzy Magee", "Christians Head", "Cherry Tree". To new songs that have yet to be played live, such as "Rain On". 

Now as The Blind Owl Band gets ready for summer, they are looking for support to independently release this album. 

Thanks for your support! We can not do this with out you!!!

The Blind Owl Band is

Arthur Buezo (Guitar, Vocals)

Christian Cardiello (Bass)

James Ford (Banjo, Vocals)

Eric Munley (Mandolin, Vocals)

Risks and challenges

The Risk and Challenges of this project come from all over the place. Starting this winter we became a full time band. This means that not only our band finances depend on the band, our personal finances do to! So as we continue to tour as hard as possible to continue to grow our name and sound, we are stressed for time. We have over come this obstacle and have successfully found space to record this wonderful new album.
We now also face choosing a release date. As we will be in over 12 states this summer it is hard to manage both our regular touring schedule and summer festival schedule on top of releasing a album!! We will face this challenge through challenge our strength as a group and work to reach every thing we desire to do this summer! This does not leave room for us to save money for the publishing of this album. This is where you come in!
Thanks for the support and helping this project stay afloat!!!
