Yes, the rumors are true! Our debut record, Rhythms & Roots, is finished–well, almost. We are getting ready to put it out to the public, but we need your help. We are rolling this out slowly because we are hoping to generate some additional funding in order to… well, get it out to the public!
Making a record, as you might imagine, costs a lot of money. We’ve invested thousands of dollars thus far, and now, as we prepare to officially release Rhythms & Roots, we are hoping our friends and fans will contribute a bit more for it so we can vociferously tell the world about it with help from a radio promoter and publicist. To do that, we’ll be launching a PledgeMusic campaign in the days ahead. So, stay tuned for details about how your participation in the launch of Rhythms & Roots (and what you’ll get for contributing a little more for your copy) will reap you!
