About this project

UPDATE:

WE DID IT! Thank you all so much. Every donation, share, and word of encouragement has been so gratifying. We are beyond appreciative of you, the loving, supportive, and extraordinary people in our lives.

This album is going to be The Nicest One. If you wanted to help but did not get a chance to, we are still happily accepting donations until our deadline. Kickstarter rightfully takes a percentage, but the more we go over, the closer we are to our actual goal. Thanks y'all!

***

First of all: Thank you for coming to our Kickstarter. We have come here to recruit your support, and appreciate the time you have taken to consider our mission. 

And now the good stuff: We are The Nice Ones—a modern, rock 'n' roll quartet based out of the perilous, unforgiving wilderness of northwestern Connecticut. Forming over a year and half ago in early 2011, we have continued to progress and establish a sound that has both garnered attention and made ourselves proud. With this encouragement and confidence, we find that it is now the right time to get in the studio and give our material the justice it deserves. 

We need your help: Mo' Money Mo' Problems... well, maybe Biggie was wrong. In order to get to the studio, we need some proper funding. We'd like to record at Millbrook Sound Studios, with renowned producer Paul Orofino (Ahmad Jamal, Daryl Hall, and the The Cars to name only a few). Unfortunately, money doesn't grow on trees—or, in our case, any of the great local bars. If you do help us out, you'll find that not only is your money well invested, but there's a lil' something in it for you. Check the donation options on the right to see exactly what these incentives are, including ownership of the finished product and limited edition McG pins!

5 Gs are The Nice Ones' fees: With recording, mastering, and production, this project will run us up a few thousand nice ones. With your contribution, we'll be able to achieve a comfortable amount of studio time and ensure the quality of our fans' (that's you!) listening experience. After all, this record will be as much for you as it is for us. 

So thank you again for giving us your attention. Thank you even more if you give us your money too! Nah, we're not jerks—we're The Nice Ones! Your support is truly appreciated and we'll treasure each and every bit.

Risks and challenges

Our most obvious challenge is achieving the standards we strive for in the recording process. Among the variables that present this challenge is the time we're allotting for recording, mixing and mastering. We're optimistic that the amount of money that we're trying to raise is sufficient. It is hard to predict how much time we'll actually need to record an album that we're proud of. Though ultimately it is up to our fans to decide.
