Folk yes! Help Kickstart the Junebugs.

We are The Junebugs. Three gents from the Pacific Northwest that want to bring our love for music to your ears. We are living our dream as professional musicians and have recently begun the process of creating our first album! This project comes from the heart and we need your help to make this project come to life. 

Here are a few teasers of the music to come:

THE RECORDING PROCESS:

Musicians these days need to be increasingly diverse in their skills to make it in this fluctuating industry. Naturally, we decided to take on the task of recording and mixing our first album in true Pacific Northwest style:ourselves. The Junebugs have put in the work and time and acquired more skills and knowledge throughout this process (and hopefully a kick ass album!). This has helped us cut down costs and has made this project much more manageable. Check out some of our pics from the process...

THE COSTS:

Creating an album is no easy feat financially, physically, or emotionally. The Junebugs have had the pleasure of recording and mixing the project ourselves, but the finishing touches are where y'all come in. 

  • Mastering: $500
  • Manufacturing of album: $2500-3000
  • Paying contributing musicians: $500
  • Promotional material: $1000

These are basics costs that come with finishing our album.

REWARDS:

We know that money is tight, but so is our music. Since you recognize that and have been generous with your money, we want to throw rewards your way! We have great perks in store for your contribution, no matter the size of the donation!

RELEASE DATE:

The release of our album is scheduled for June 2015. 

Risks and challenges

Life comes with challenges, but tackling them head on is our mission in life!

We have most of the leg work done already and feel confident that our project (once funded) will proceed as scheduled. The Junebugs have the resources and connections needed to make this happen and fulfill our promise to you.

If for any reason the creation of this album is delayed by unforeseen obstacles or emergencies, we promise to keep you in the loop, be honest, and to deliver the promised album and rewards as quickly as possible and to the best of our abilities.
