To those of you that are already fans of The Porter Draw,  good to see you again.  For those of you that might be discovering us for the first time, Hello and thanks for stopping by.

The Porter Draw is an Alt. Country, Americana band from Albuquerque, NM.  We have been writing, playing and recording together for over 6 years.  We have shared the stage with such greats as Greensky Bluegrass, Reverend Horton Heat, The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Cross Canadian Ragweed, and Cadillac Sky.  You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and our Offical Web Page

The face of the music industry is changing, and we're embracing it. If you love music, there's no reason you shouldn't be part of getting that music out into the world!

We are looking for your help to get our latest album released! In this model you become our record label, providing us the support we need to make this new album a reality.

We spent 3 days and nights at Frogville Studios with Bill Palmer making sure we captured these songs the way we wanted to present them to you. They are a culmination of the last couple of years playing, writing and growing as a band. They are recorded and mixed, and we want to get them to you.

Here is a sample from our previous record, California Widow:

As our new label you will be helping pay the costs for Mastering, Graphic Designers and Artists, Manufacturing, Shipping, Distribution and more.

Your support will go beyond just the physical product.  It will allow us to share our music with people all over the world.

Rewards!

We have put together a long list of rewards that we hope will offer something for everyone. 

  • Every pledge above $10 gets the new CD and Digital Download
  • $35 and above gets the show poster and your name on the guest list for the release party on April 4th at The Launchpad (21+). 
  •  $75 or more gets you the exclusive "I Kickstarted The Porter Draw 2014" T-shirt.

 And so much more! ----->


Some of the items are limited so take a look and get your pledge in early! CD RELEASE WILL BE 21+

Our main goal is to get our 3rd full length pressed and into your hands.  But if we pass our goal and raise $3500, we will release a covers album which will be free to all our backers as a digital download.  

If the frenzy continues and we raise $4500 we will release new, full band versions of songs off the first record.  These will be free to all our backers as a digital download as well.

We are really looking forward to sharing this music with all of you, and we truly believe that with YOU as our record label, this will be one of our best albums yet.

Thank you, The Porter Draw

Risks and challenges

Don't worry! We are pros and have already aligned all the moving parts to make sure this happens efficiently and on time. This isn't our first rodeo!

Some of these rewards like the cover songs and lessons could present some challenge in delivery. We have plans in place to be able to accomplish this but as with everything schedules are subject to change.
