us the other day why we decided to do a KickStarter Campaign to help fund our new
album, "Hold On." We thought long and hard about doing it, in all
honesty, because it's a lot to ask of your fans...
Ultimately, we decided to go for it for two reasons: 1)
We came up with an idea for a video that would show off the music, our personalities,
and an innovative approach we don't think anyone has tried before. 2)
We knew it was the only way we would be able to offer some of the really cool kick-back
rewards we're offering up!!!
really proud of what we came up with. Our program isn't about donation or
investment - it's about being able to offer you a piece of ourselves and our dream.
It's a perfect platform to let you into the process and make you a big part of making
