Wee Trio fans,

We reaching out to invite you to be part of creating our 5th album. For this record we wanted to do something totally different than our first 4 albums. Changing the texture of our sound by inviting 3 of our favorite musicians has been a dream for us for several years. We have finally made this dream a reality. We called on trumpeter Nicholas Payton, pianist Fabian Almazán, and guitarist Nir Felder. Each member of The Wee Trio composed a song for each guest artist. A few months ago we finally tracked this album in Brooklyn, NY using Grammy Award winning engineer Mike Marciano. 

Now comes the hard part for us. We have Jeremy Fetzer lined up to create the album art (www.fetzerdesign.com), Nate Wood (www.kerseboommastering.com) is scheduled to master the record, and Jason Byrne of Red Cat Publicity is onboard to be our publicist. In order to help pay for these services we are asking that you pre-order this CD. If you can support this project even more there are several packages that will reward you for your generosity. 

Thank you for your kind support! We were overwhelmed with the response we received when we did our last Kickstarter in 2012 to make our "David Bowie Intraspective" album. After your contribution you will receive a few email updates from us letting you know how the project is progressing for our September release. This will include a sneak peek at the album art and behind the scene footage of preparing for our release. 

Sincerely,

The Wee Trio (James Westfall, vibraphone + marimba; Dan Loomis, bass; Jared Schonig, drums)
