Purple Hulls Album!

$13,146

226

Howdy friends and folks we hope to meet down the road!

It's time! The Purple Hulls are going back in the studio, and aren't scared to say it...we need your help! From start to finish, quite the sum is necessary for the completion of a project. Let's see...we have photo sessions, artwork, studio fees, engineer costs, guest musicians...not to mention the amount of purple hulls peas and cornbread it'll take to keep our engineer content during long hours behind the board.:) In all honesty, the making of a quality album takes some funds, and with your awesome support, we're sure to get this thing done.

Why do we want to record another project?

It's a question we like to ask ourselves! Of course, we do it for our livelihood. Without material to sell, we can't make the money it takes to do our traveling/performing thing. BUT, it's surely not the main drive behind our desire to put out new music. Honestly, we want to put new music out to share with you, simply put. We've been inspired to write and arrange and learn these instruments and sing these songs to bring joy to people and glory to God, the Giver of all these things!

Our plan is to cut a mix of songs, both gospel tunes and non-gospel, that you have heard at our live shows and requested we record (like "Welcome to West Tx" & "Mind of It's Own," among others!), new originals you haven't yet heard, and even some old standards like "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" and our rendition of "Old Joe Clark." We pray the Lord uses it in a mighty way as we seek to use the gifts He's given us!

We'd be honored to have you join us in this journey and appreciate any gift you can give!

Risks and challenges

We're going to try our very best to complete our project and get our rewards out in August! IF perhaps something stalls the process, we will work until we finish, and in that case, it'd most likely be September before fulfilling the rewards! Thank you again folks! Love to all!
