We are The Gills. We are finished recording our new EP "Motor Running" and we need your help to get it out!

We are originally from Pensacola FL, but have lived in Nashville TN for about a year and a half now. It's been really good so far. We've been able to write a lot of new songs and play them at a variety of venues for some really nice new faces. A good friend from our home town, Paul Kimsal, moved in with us recently and set up a home studio. We began immediately working on this project. These are five songs that we all really like, and have been able to put a lot of love into. 

Being an independent artist is such a liberating experience when it comes to creating and deciding what's best for the song; but sometimes independent budgets are not so liberating. We are well aware that this won't turn out as cool as we want it to unless we have some extra backing. As you might have noticed we launched a kickstarter recently but didn't meet our goal. : (  We're not the quitting type though so, not to worry! We want to show our appreciation for those of you that pledged by giving you another shot! : )

 30 days to raise $2,500 or more!! Can we do it? We certainly hope so! Please do what you can, even if that's just reposting/telling someone/or giving a dollar. Reaching this goal will make the rest of this record releasing process so much more enjoyable! We'll be able to finish it on time and get it into your head phones and hoopties faster than Gene Simmons can seal an envelope for a Publisher's Clearing House check.

Now, go and spread Gill-Mania far and wide!!
