Hard Soul has always been about one thing: music. From our live shows to crafting songs we give it 100% plus whatever we have in reserve. As a DIY rock n' roll band gigging around the northeast we've accomplished quite a bit in the short year that we've been together. Now we need your help to get us to the next level.

Our plan for this fall is to record a new EP of tunes. To say we're proud of this latest batch of songs would be an understatement. These tunes represent only a small amount of the writing and creative process that's occurred over the previous 12 months, but like a fine wine, these songs have gotten better with age (and with performance as well).

Our goal is to press it not only to CD but also in very special limited edition 12" vinyl. Why vinyl? Because it's awesome! That, and it sounds really great.

Your contribution to this project, big or small, will go a long way in funding our time in the studio and pressing the album in both CD & vinyl format & would enable us to produce a really cool collectors item for our fans.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge will be successfully and safely shipping out the vinyl to our supporters - the discs are delicate and we want to make sure everyone gets their copy promptly and in one piece!
