Support Above the Sun's Second Album

On September 27, 2017, Above the Sun played our first show at The Bitter End, the legendary club venue in Greenwich Village. In the time since then, we’ve put out our debut album Excitation accompanied by three incredible music videos, played dozens more shows in the New York City area and beyond, and even landed on the ballot for nomination at the upcoming 63rd Grammy Awards for our song Empty Words.  Fresh on the heels of our growing success, we are currently making our follow-up album to Excitation. Just recently, on October 30, we released a new single Cosmic Radio that will be featured on this new album. 

All these achievements are driven by our deep passion for making and sharing music and none of it would have been possible without the support of our friends, families, and fans. 2020 has been a challenging year for us all. With the COVID-19 pandemic, opportunities to perform and fund our creative projects have been significantly limited.

We are therefore asking for your financial support in this new endeavor. Your contribution will be put toward:

- Recording studio time
- Compensating the engineers and producers of the album
- Compensating additional musicians
- Design and production of album artwork

Music is a special force that brings joy, healing, and a sense of connectedness among those who experience it. Above the Sun stands for openness, love, and a strong community of people who celebrate the power of art. We will always remember your support, in both prosperous and uncertain times.Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

For your generosity, we will pledge you the following:

$10 - a handwritten thank you card

$20 - the above, plus a signed photograph of the band

$30 - the above, plus a signed handwritten lyric sheet to Cosmic Radio

$50 - the above, plus a signed CD copy of Excitation (while supplies last)

$100 - the above, plus comped admission to a future show

$200 - the above, plus a video call with a band member of your choosing

$500 - the above, plus an invitation to hang out with us when it is safe to do so

$1000 - the above, plus a song written for you to be featured in a future Above the Sun release
