Wake Up Laughing: Recording + Album

Wake Up Laughing is in the Studio!

Thank you to all our friends and family that have supported Wake Up Laughing since our musical journey began in the winter of 2013. We've been working and playing hard, bringing high energy shows, original music, and lots of laughter to Montezuma County and the surrounding Four Corners region. We've amassed quite a collection of original songs in the last few years. It's time to plant some new seeds for Wake Up Laughing...

Recording, mixing, mastering, and producing a professional album brings together a team of people. We've begun recording with local recording professional Dale X Allen at -Dead End Ranch- here in Dolores, Colorado. We've saved up funds from playing local shows over the last year to kick start this recording process. To get through the next steps, we are kindly asking for the finacial assistance of our supportive community. Help us turn these seeds into a growing tree so we may spread Wake Up Laughing's "good vibes music" far and wide!

This process will take place over the next few months. Wake Up Laughing's crowd sourcing campaign is open now to get ready for what's to come. The sooner you can help, the easier it will be for us to move forward with our plan.

Here's Our Plan:

- Finish recording tracks for Wake Up Laughing's 12 song LP with -vintage recording pro- Dale X Allen

- Digital Mixing and Mastering with Dale's Audio Engineer Cris Burns in Austin, Texas

- Original Album Design and Artwork with help from local Artists and Graphic Designers

- Bulk printing/pressing of the completed Wake Up Laughing Album and registering our original songs on a national level

We are so grateful for our supportive community and we appreciate any way that you can help us reach our goals!

Much Love and Appreciation,
Kevin ❤ Mary ❤ Isaac
