Right Hand Shade Album Kickstarter Campaign

We’re Right Hand Shade and we’re excited to share our Kickstarter campaign to record our upcoming album at Old Bear Studio! This campaign is raising funds in order to produce, record, mix, and master our second studio album.   

The band had written new material, and we were looking for a creative space to develop the songs. We connected with Chris Hoisington & Old Bear Studio. Chris is one of the founders of Old Bear and is a member of the award-winning and Billboard-charting act The Brothers McClurg. He and Old Bear have facilitated production on dozens of projects in the Christian music industry. 

We’ve already recorded the songs for the album at Old Bear Studio and we’re so excited for you to hear them. As you might imagine, the costs of recording at the professional level add up quickly.

While we are amazed at the opportunity to work with such world-class talent, we also recognize that we have some real challenges to overcome. We had the album fully funded with 2020 bookings but lost them due to the pandemic. We had booked a summer tour including main stage appearances at festivals like River Rock, Connect Festival, and SoulFest, appearances at our favorite summer camps, opening slots for major national touring acts, and concerts at many venues across New England. As one after another venue canceled all summer events, we watched the recording funds that we were counting on disappear.

We held a Drive-In Concert fundraiser in June of 2020, one of the first of its kind to offset some of the loss of funds. We’re so grateful for our fans who came out to support us for that event, but we still need your help!

We know that right now is a challenging time for so many people, so it is a delicate thing to ask for financial support. But we ALSO know that we serve a God who is FAITHFUL, who ALWAYS keeps His promises, and we do not believe that He has opened the door and inspired these songs only to leave us without the means to bring them to those who need to hear them. We believe that God is going to supernaturally provide for us to make this album a reality, so that He gets all the glory.

To support this campaign, click below and you’ll be guided through the process. We need your help to make this album a reality. Would you consider donating to our campaign? We’d also love your help in inviting all of your contacts in your social media network to join us as well. Help us spread the word!

In order to make sure everyone gets something special in addition to the new album, we’ve put together several personalized gifts from our updated line of merch in exchange for your generosity. You can check those out below. 

We’ve been humbled by how God’s intentional has already open so many doors for our band, and we’re so excited to share this next step with you! As long as He gives us this platform, we’re going to point back to Him with our message that He has a future and a hope for every one of us. Your contribution will enable us to reach many more people with that message.

THANK YOU so much for checking out our kickstarter campaign. We can’t wait to see what God does with this music! With your support, we can make an impact together that reaches so much farther than any of us could reach on our own. Let’s live loud to see more people impacted for the kingdom!
