We’re getting started on album number 5! The album doesn’t have a title just yet, but we have a list of 10-12 songs we are working with and we’ve already begun recording 2 tracks and have plans to release our next single very soon!
To keep this project affordable, we are recording parts of the album at our studio and parts at Recording Art's Studio where we are working with the awesome producer, Marco Delmar! For those of you who have been following us, this is the same producer that we worked with on our album, Into Bloom, so we are excited to be making steps towards our next studio album with Marco! We really can't wait to release this next batch of music!
Of course it does take some time to produce all of this as Independent musicians who are also touring and teaching, so we'll keep you all posted along the steps of our journey! Having money coming in to keep the project going will be very helpful to us and will certainly move our timeline for completion into the sooner rather than later category!
The fundraising money is to cover:
-Studio time -Production -Session musician fees -Music distribution fees -Reproduction
If money is raised above our goal, we will plan to put the money towards radio and press and promotional costs for the album.
Anyone who contributes $15 or more will get the link to download the mp3s of the album when its complete!
Beyond this album, we are also nurturing the creative baby seedlings of our next soundscapes album and another concept album as well! Lots of music coming through and we are so excited to share our visions with you!
Join us on our journey to seeing our vision for this album into the world!
Lots of love to you all!

PS – So why a gofundme? In the past we have hosted our crowdfunding through the Pledge Music platform which was a pre-order platform that was an all or nothing funding situation. Unfortunately, Pledge Music went under this year, taking with it more than $10 million of artists hard earned funding! Fortunately, we made it out of the situation much better than some of the artists who were impacted, as they only took $600 of our funding with them when they went bankrupt, whereas some artists suffered in the 100k range, which is truly devastating for an Indie Musician! So this time we choose gofundme! Also, because of the gofundme pay-as-you-go format, we will really be able to keep our project moving along with funds coming in throughout the process, rather than coming to us later in the game, once our goal is met. After a bit of research, we really felt like the gofundme crowdfunding platform is the best and safest option for us at this time.
