Play On Words: The all new album by YellowTieGuy

$1,064

32

YellowTieGuy released their first record "Joy In The Mourning" in May of 2012, and had started to record "Play On Words" The following year, but technical difficulties with digital recording interfaces and hard drive failure, eventually required the band to put the project on hold...

Until...

in April of 2015, YellowTieGuy started the recording process with engineer Darren Guzzone at Belly Acres Studio in southern Maryland. We really took our time to make sure that the quality of the songs as well as the orchestration was the absolute best it could be.

Funds from this Kickstarter campaign will allow us to continue with development of the production until the release of the record on August 5th, 2016. Until then, we're releasing the singles "Anthem" and "First Move", along with an acoustic version of "Anthem". We've got CDs as well as downloads available, we've released an entirely new t-shirt design in preparation for the launch of the single as well as a few other odds and ends that we think people will enjoy. All featuring artwork designed by the incomparable Danielle Kraus Tarka of Chestnut Illustrations!
