Okay guys, we just wanted to let you know everything that’s been going on! There’s so much happening!
So first things first: after releasing our first official music video (16,000 views in 3 weeks!) and single “Rolling in the Deep,” we began to think of ways we can keep up this momentum. We want to keep recording songs and filming music videos, so we came up with launching a Kickstarter project to raise the money. This past weekend we filmed the interviews and b-roll footage for the Kickstarter, and we will be launching the 30-day campaign sometime this summer, probably in June. If we are successful, we will be able to record, mix, and master 3 more singles, film 3 more music videos, and go on tour to Utah and Idaho this fall! We’ll announce the Kickstarter project everywhere, so look out for it!
Arizona School for the Arts
Second, we had a great time with the Arizona School for the Arts! We performed for two of their classes on Tuesday, May 7th, and it was so awesome! It was our first time performing with our pickups and amps and the loop station, so it was a game changer for us. Luckily everything worked properly (no electrical problems, feedback, or problems using our new loop station), and the students and teachers were so excited and supportive of us! Another really cool part of our ASA visit was that a rep from Eastman Strings came to see our show! He said that Eastman Strings might be interested in sponsoring us! Fingers crossed! Many thanks to Maria Simiz and Cindy Blandino for helping us set up our visit with ASA and for supporting us!
We are also looking into signing on with Dow Artists. Our mentor Deanna Swoboda has helped us with this contact, and it could mean a lot of tour dates for us in the next couple years! We would still book concerts, residencies, and school visits through our own efforts, but coupled with the efforts and connections of Dow Artists, we should be very busy in the coming months/years! We will update you as soon as we know if we are signing on with them.
Finally, this summer we will be arranging and recording a full-length Christmas album! We will be booking several Christmas concerts, too, so look forward to a fun Christmas concert for the whole family! Once we have the concert dates, we will post them to our website and announce the dates via all social media.
We are so excited guys! We truly appreciate your support, and we can’t wait to begin these next projects this summer! Talk to you soon!
