About this project
In 2012, 3 brothers from Maryland touring under their last name, Willet, released "The Love on the outside E.P.", produced by Aaron Gillespie (Underoath, The Almost).
In an effort to advance the Gospel of Jesus to the nations, the band made the E.P. available on a pay-what-you-can basis (physical and digital) and watched as over 10,000 fans nationwide received the new music.
Following the release of the E.P., the band hit the international stage with 9 performances in London during the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, followed by a 25 city U.S. tour with Family Force 5 & Disciple.
Coming April 2013...
The highly-anticipated follow up to "The Love on the outside E.P"...

If this kickstarter campaign reaches the $25,000 goal, the band hits the Nashville Studio in November 2012 to record 10 brand new songs.

__________NOTE FROM THE BAND _________
Last year, our fans provided over $5,000 through Kickstarter to fund our "Love on the outside E.P." Since that time, you have allowed us to make that E.P. available to over 10,000 people! THANK YOU! While we were touring on the "Love on the outside E.P.", we were secretly writing a full-length album, that with your help, could be released by Spring 2013!
As you know, Willet has been touring for 7 years as an independent band with no funding from a major record label. Therefore, we are DEPENDENT on YOU, our friends, to make this full-length record a reality. Without YOU, these songs may never be heard.
In order to raise the $25,000 needed to produce the full length album, we have released limited edition incentives that support our new project. We LOVE the direct band-to-fan connection that Kickstarter allows us to have with you to make a new album! Let's do this together...
If Willet's ministry and/or music has impacted your life, consider supporting our most important project yet by making a pledge on Kickstarter. Remember, KICKSTARTER is "all-or-nothing"... meaning, if we don't hit the $25,000, none of the album will be funded, and your pledges will not be charged to your card. We would love to see this project surpass the goal, and when we do, we will use that "extra" money to make the album even better as well as put together a 2013 tour where you can hear the new songs live!
Thank you in advance for making this dream come true. We couldn't do this without you...
-Jeremy, Justin & Jordan Willet
If you are not familiar with how kickstarter works...you will be making a "pledge" towards our project. If we reach our goal of $25,000, then your card will be charged the amount that you pledged, and you will receive your incentive shortly after that.
If we do not hit the goal, your card will not be charged anything, however, there will be NO new Willet record and NO incentives for anyone.
The good news is that we can go over the goal! If this does happen (and we believe that it will), we will be using the extra money towards the radio campaign, publicist, and marketing of the new album so even more people can hear about the band!
I own my own studio, and could record your band for $300. Why don't you just save money and work with me?
:) Great question. As a band, we have learned (the hard way) the value of doing a project with EXCELLENCE. With as much time as we've put into writing these songs, we are not going to cut corners on producing, recording, or releasing this content. As much as we'd love to see your studio, we have to go with top-notch, professional engineers and producers on this new album.
This album is a follow up to our "Love on the outside E.P." (Produced by Aaron Gillespie) and will include 10 BRAND NEW SONGS! To hold you over, you can grab our E.P. for free at www.willetonline.com
