Conan & the Malis needs your help to fulfill their dream project “GOING FOR A WALK”. With your support, they will be able to make this album a reality. A project like this needs a lot of dog training, composing, recording, producing, mixing, mastering, then video shooting, video editing, photo shooting, designing, the list continues but lets not forget of course, lots and lots of love. Last year was a rollercoaster of work for these dogs to finish writing their first album, and now they are seeking help, fellow dog owners, to help us make this a reality.
 
Who is Conan & the Malis?
 
 
 
 
 
Conan the Daschund and his loyal three Malinois bros were stuck at home during the lockdown so they decided to start an 80’s rock band to help get by and make ends meet. These four dogs have always gone for walks together since the Rhythm Twins, Quinto and Quenten, were born, vaccinated and dewormed. But so far, nobody has written Dog ‘N’ Roll music with important dog themes, with song titles like “Going for a Walk”, “All of the Butts”, “Dog N’ Roll”, “Chasing the Cats”, “Son of a Bitch” and “I found a Stick”. This is why Conan & the Malis are here, giving a voice to an entire generation of dogs and their dog owners as well as raising awareness to the great misconception that Belgian Shepherd Malinois are an evil dangerous breed.
 
 
 
 
Why GoFundMe?
 
Conan & the Malis is like a family project that came to life after numerous nights of brainstorming while going for walks with the dogs. From funny conversations about which dog would be which musician and why, taking in consideration their doggonalities, to song ideas, lyrics and music composition, it ended up transformed into a ton of hours and days of recording in the studio with the most incredible engineer we could have ever asked for. Although the project took a very fast paced professional turn, that even took us to Belgium for a while, we were lucky that the people involved are still a close circle like a giant family who simply enjoy the idea of Quinto, Quenten, Flecho and Conan having a rock band and rocking other dogs out.
So you can say the album is very far in its conception, but yet so far from being a reality.
 
Albums need a big investment to exist, there's a lot more than just recording. Things like, video shooting and editing, photos, CD pressing, merchandise designing and printing, promotion, the list goes on and on with things that make the project be really far from being officially done. That’s where you come in!

The epidemic was hard on everyone, but no industry felt it harder than the music industry. All shows and tours, the majority of any musicians income, were cancelled almost overnight. GoFundMe is a way for me to help raise funds to complete the album and at the same time to organize a good pre-sale of the album in order to make it the best it can be before it gets released! It’s also great because this way we can offer more than we would have thought to produce on our own thanks to you, our beloved dog lovers.
Over the past year, things have been very hard, I've had almost zero income from music so any donation or support would be extremely appreciated.
 
About the artist
 
Raise your axes! My name is Patri Grief and I'm a musician from Spain. I've been playing guitar for the past 17 years and I've been featured in quite a few music projects from other countries such as Canada or Belgium as well as my own band Norwald, which has toured the nation. So don't worry, these dogs have been properly taught on how to riff off! Conan & The Malis is for me a way to mix two of the most important things in my life: music, my big passion in life, and dogs, as I don't recall a day in my life in which I hadn't had quite a few around. My mother (a dog educator) always taught me how to treat them right and how to understand them and their behavior, so pretty much I've become a person who, most of the time, understands dogs better than their owners. Thanks mum!
