Who is Loup-Garou?What do you get when you throw a bunch of musicians and songwriters from all over the country into a small room on the south side of Birmingham, Alabama? The Band Loup-Garou! From as far away as California and New York, the members of Loup-Garou are a custom blend of choice flavors percolating together into a sound that many listeners have struggled to describe. Are they folk? Are they Americana? A classically trained tint is introduced thanks to the viola playing of Mollie. Trading in his tuba for a bass guitar, Jeremy brings a big band energy to the rhythm section. All of this compliments the silky and distinct voice of Shawna and the dynamic guitar playing and vocals of Ian. Jazz/punk hybrid drummer Matt Herbert rounds out this eclectic group of folks who simply clicked from the first night they met. Come see Loup-Garou sometime and see if you can figure out what they sound like!! Its truly a wonderful mystery!
What is 'The Place We Met' (working title)?'The Place We Met' Is our first studio produced album. We start recording on June 2nd with 'Navajo' and will be working on it continuously throughout the summer. thats why we need you your help!
What We Need & What You GetSo what do we need? The funds to help us fully record our album! Being an independent original band isn't easy, but it's worth it. It's a labor of love, and slowly but surely we've been saving our pennies to go in the studio, but we need your help! We're looking to raise some extra funds so that we can finish recording our album and get our sounds out there to the world. Your contribution to this project will go towards the cost of studio time, physical album production, distribution, and, if there is any left over, possibly adding an extra song or two to the album. Every little bit helps!
Where is the Money Going:
Producing an album isn't cheap and this is what we're planning on spending money on:
Recording cost including studio time, mixing and mastering, Physical album production and distibution, & Digital Distribution.
