Hey all! We hope you have had an amazing summer and are enjoying what is left of it before all the craziness of fall begins!
By way of update, we wanted to happily announce that if all goes to plan, we will be recording our next album beginning this November! We are excited to work with producer Mitch Dane on this record, who has produced albums for great artists like Jars of Clay, Caedman's Call, and JJ Heller.
We say "if all goes to plan" because before production can begin, a couple things need to happen. For one, Dave needs to finish writing all the songs, and for two, we need to raise production costs...which brings us to our next announcement. **We will be launching a Kickstarter project on Thursday, September 5th.**
The total cost of the project will be $29,000 (yikes!), so we are trying our best to get the word out early on. This is where we can really use your help. On Sept. 5th, we are going to host a live online concert via U-Stream to "kick" things off. We will be featuring 2-3 brand new songs, taking requests, and singing songs you may have heard on our last album! We hope you will join us!
Lastly, we are currently putting together a "street team" to help us with promoting our KickStarter via twitter, facebook, ect, but we still need a lot more people to join! We will provide pre-written posts, links to videos, and everything you need to easily copy-paste to share with your friends. Every person added is a huge help, so please let us know if you're on board by sending us a message with your email address and the words "I'm in."
Once again, we owe MANY THANKS to everyone on this email list for helping us get started as The Gray Havens. We greatly appreciate your support. Cheers!
Dave and Licia
