~Cat Hoch Full Length Album~
Dearest Friends, Family, Fans and web world!!
The time has come to finish the Cat Hoch full length album and I need your help!
Let me start by telling you a lil' about me.
I started working on my solo project in a basement 5 or so years ago. I did demo's myself and let me tell you...I really had no idea what I was doing recording wise and I still dont. After playing in numerous projects; Tender Age, Eternal Tapestry, Daydream Machine, and Jackson Boone, I realized that I wanted to pursue my own project and asked my dearest friends if they would help me play my songs live. Today, I'm working on my own tunes as well as playing guitar and singing in Bryson Cone, and drumming in BlackWater(HolyLight).
While I love the bands I'm working with today, I'm still focusing on my own art and I need some help to keep the process and momentum going! The Cat Hoch band is doing some exciting things this summer, including playing Sou'wester and Pikathon! I'm hoping to have finished a full length record before these shows so that I can bring some new matieral to the table :)
Riley Geare and I have been working together for a few years now. He helped me record my EP, Look What You Found and I've felt as though we were a dream team ever since. I'm very excited to get these new songs out there and Riley and I have been experimenting with some new songwriting ideas. Over the course of the year now, we've been working on this new record together but aren't quite finished!
Wer'e about a third of the way and financially I still have a ways to go. Recently, I released a new single that you can listen to below, as well as a lil' clip of a new song that just needs mastering... so you have an idea of what were creating :)
Riley and I are aiming for 2 weeks to a month to finalize and complete the songs that are written for this record. $2500 will cover costs at the Greenhaus recording studio. There, Riley Geare will be engineering, editing, producing, and generally collaborating. $500 should go to mixing and mastering with Adam Gonzasales of Telegraph Mastering. $1000 will go to Evan James Atwood who has been graciously helping me on a music video to promote these new songs!! The photo above is a still of the video we have been working on, and our friend Kerry Yamaucci did the make up ;* They have been incredibly amazing to work with and have been getting me pumped up to get this stuff out there!!
With your help, I will be able to record my music and continue my passion! I've been so grateful for all the love and support my community has given me and I'm hoping to give it back...
