Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

It's always a fun challenge to record and produce a CD. The studio space and engineer must be booked, the recordings must be mixed and mastered, and final product must be packaged. But it is a fun process! The toughest part of the whole thing is the funding. That's why Austin and Kelsey have turned to Kickstarter as a vehicle to drum up support for our new album. We have original music already waiting to be recorded, so as soon as we have met our goal, we will begin recording!
