In this stage of our journey, we have found ourselves in a unique position. We are momentarily not tied down to a specific record company. We’ve tossed around countless options looking ahead, but none seem as exciting as the possibility of doing this album with the people that we exist to serve. Instead of borrowing money from a corporation to fund this next project, we think it would be far more exciting if you guys would be our record label!

The people who take our music into their homes and churches are not simply “fans.” You are people we’ve shared our lives with, and you have given us permission to step into yours. It’s this ongoing relationship that inspires us to return the studio. With your help, we have 30 days to raise the necessary funds for pre-production, our producer, studio time, additional instruments & artists, mixing, mastering, printing, artwork, etc. Anything we’re able to bring in over $40k will allow us to record more songs/music and will be used for promotion & playing shows to support what we believe will be the best album we’ve put out to date!

Music, by nature, is communal. The only true difference between simple contextualized sound and “music” may be the fact that “music” is comprised of sounds we intend to share with other people. It’s this human element that draws us to the sounds we call music. Both the songwriter and the listener are looking for a sympathetic heart. (“Sympathetic,” by the way, is originally a musical term.) We both want to know that someone else in the world feels the way we feel about… well, anything. These sounds let us know that we are not alone.

Please join together with us and our community by becoming our record label and allowing us to bring you the songs that I’m most excited about. We will give you a front row seat on how things are progressing through the process and we promise to work hard to make you proud. Help us fund this next album together!

love,
JM
