Lost On Vacation vinyl project

$637 of $800 goal

Raised by 24 people in 30 months
We need a little more money to release this Skrill Meadow album on vinyl.  Any donation of $25 or more will get you a copy of the LP, as well as a cassette featuring home recorded demos of the album!

The money will go to the cost of producing, pressing, mastering, and distributing said album.

Last winter, inspired by the closing of an exciting year and the pretense of baby on the way, I wrote and recorded demos for ten heartfelt tunes I'd settled on.  Shortly after, I assembled a crack team of musician friends and we began rehearsing for live arrangements.  The first side of the album was recorded with the Blackstones, the rock band I assembled for the purpose of this record.  The second side of the album features my bandmates from LAKE holding down the basic tracks.  Sam Gray heroically made time to engineer the record at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, WA.  We took our time, and we tried out lots of different ideas.  Featuring a total of 18 musicians, this is the first Skrill Meadow studio recording- everything previous had been produced at home.  It was nice to get away from the technical side of making a record and focus on playing and arranging music.  Finally, I was able to put my all into the creative process without having to push buttons and get tangled in wires!

The modern-soft-rock album I heard in my head has come to fruition, and it has been a true labor of love.  

Releasing on vinyl is no small task, especially during the first year of supporting a family.  This is going to take a group effort!  Please support in any way you can, including sharing this info.

This album could not have been made without whom:

Sam Gray, Andrew Ebright, Andrew Dorsett, Ashley Eriksson, Nathan Gibson, Eli Moore, Kyle Lacasse, Brian Wilson, Koji Saito, Angelo Spencer, Benjamin Kapp, Lucy Blue, Lindsay Schief, Eric Donahue, Alec Gabin, Koji Shibuya, Natsumi Shibuya, Michael Sean Coleman
Risks and challenges
The album is already recorded and mixed, the artwork is finished, all I have to do is raise the funds and place the order. All vinyl will be delivered in good condition, guaranteed.

It's go time! Placing the order for LPs this weekend!
The next 20 orders as of 12PM west coast time will receive a copy of the demo cassette before the record ships, and of course, a digital copy of the record via email link. Literally could not have done it without you. This is a dream come true!

Lost On Vacation vinyl project has reached 52% of its goal. At this point that means four more pre-orders will get the vinyl pressing process in action!

Got the tapes for the bonus demo album today and they are a beautiful bright yellow. Now I'm having fun designing the box for that...

Anyway, tell your friends if you like this record! Thanks for all the support!
