About this project
Hello, we’re the Coach House Company,
We are extremely excited to be recording our second EP "Maiden Tales" this summer, but we can’t complete the project without your support. Read on to find out how you can help, or watch our video!
The Coach House Company was born when we were studying music at university together a few years ago and we’ve now been playing together for almost five years.
We call ourselves a folk band but if you listen closely you will discover that our music is actually a melting pot of lots of different influences, brought together in the folk tradition of the British Isles.
Over the past six months we’ve been fine-tuning our material. We are now at the point where we want to share with you what we have been working on by recording and releasing our second EP.
This second EP will consist of five tracks: there are four folk songs and one original composition. We have taken melodies from Yorkshire, Ireland and two from Scotland and, starting with traditional words and melody, we have built our own new and unique versions of these songs. Our original instrumental composition builds on what we love best about the folk tradition – the rhythmically exciting and the beautifully lyrical – not forgetting the spontaneity of collective improvisation and the joy of making music together!
It is with this EP that we need your help! We need to raise £2500 to record, mix, master and release the musical material we have been working on. We now have all our ducks in a row, and have our fingers and toes crossed that we can meet our target and begin recording in early June for a September release.
We love the idea of the EP being funded by people who want to hear the music and support what we’re doing. There are all sorts of things you will get in return for backing our project.

Thanks for visiting our Kickstarter page, we really appreciate any support you can give us and we hope to share our EP with you soon!

Risks and challenges
We have perfected each of the five tracks we would like to record for our second EP. We have our studio time booked. We have large supplies of malt loaf and chocolate coconut macaroons. All we need now is the support of our fantastic audience to make this EP a reality!
In all seriousness, the only real risk with this project is that we do not reach our target before our first studio session, which is why we need your generous support now! We have the experience and the contacts from the recording and production of our first EP, so the challenges will all be familiar to us: planning and structuring our studio time for each of the tracks, having input into the mastering process to ensure that the balance and mix of each song is as good as possible, and making decisions about production and distribution options. Unless there is a major unforeseen disaster, we are confident that we will be on schedule for a September 2016 release for this second EP.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
