Help us build our new studio, The Candy Shop!

Hey! Our names are Aaron, Lorenzo and Justin. We're the production team behind musical acts such as CANDY, Omgimjoe, Skyrenzo, Aaron Rizzo, Doctors Who Smoke, Terrorbyte and many, many more. 

We've recently embarked on a journey to start our own recording studio/production space, "The Candy Shop." If you're a Syracuse native, you may be familiar with the legendary More Sound Recording Studio. We will be taking over the Studio B location as our own.

We're incredibly excited to start this endeavor, but building a studio has many startup costs. These costs include things like computers, studio monitors, workstations, acoustic treatment, preamps/AD conversion/outboard gear, etc. The purpose of this fundraiser is to earn enough so that we land on our feet when the lease of the studio starts. We are planning to have the studio open by early March.

We want this fundraiser to be a transparent, mutually beneficial and interactive experience, so we are offering discounted recording studio services in exchange for specific tiers of donations. Here's what you'll get:

TIER 1: $1-$9: a personal thank you and a shoutout on the CANDY page

TIER 2: $10-$24: a CANDY sticker mailed to you

TIER 3: $25
 - $99
 = A limited edition CANDY sample pack

TIER 4: $100
= 3 hours of studio time [$150 value]

TIER 5: $250 = A mix and master of your song (up to 45 multi-tracks and 5 minutes in length) [$500 value]

TIER 6: $350 = One 8-hour day in The Candy Shop [$500 value]

TIER 7: $1,000+ = A song written, produced, mixed and mastered by The Candy Shop

- All attended studio bookings are dependent on engineer availability and cannot be redeemed until after the opening day of The Candy Shop**
- All attended studio bookings will require a negative COVID-19 test within 96 hours of the session**
- Tier 4 includes Tiers 1,2 & 3**

*****SUPER IMPORTANT*****: PLEASE leave us your email address so we can contact you about the tier that you donated within! This is crucial if you wish to receive the benefit in that tier.

We can't thank you enough for supporting us in this endeavor. It's been our dream to open our own studio and it is finally a possibility. 

We'll be posting updated pictures of the space as we go. Cheers!
