The Heavy Hearts DEBUT LP on Kickstarter

LMS & Zac's Debut LP needs your help! This June, our first ever LP goes into production with Birmingham's own, Les Nuby of Verbana!

Here we go, folks! Zac and I are finally teaming up with the one and only, Les Nuby (Verbana & Vulture Whale), to record our first EVER full-length album inside of Birmingham's infamous, Ole Elegante Studios.

The album (yet to be named) is going to be comprised of 13 of our best songs that we have been performing for the past year all over the southeast. We begin recording Friday, June 28, 2013, and hope to complete our production adventures before November or December!

In order to deliver on this long awaited endeavor, we need YOUR help. Here are just a few examples of what we plan on doing with your hard-earned money & gracious givings:

1.) pay musicians--their talent is worth it.

2.) pay our producer, Les--his creativity and artistic genius with this project WILL make the difference.

3.) pay someone awesome (Jason Hamric) to mix & master it--this man will make us sound radio profesh!

4.) pay someone to help us design our album artwork and layout so you get a beautiful hard copy you'll be proud to own.

5.) pay for our record to be duplicated and manufactured.

That's all, folks! That's all it takes to make a record. Now, selling a record is going to be a whole different ball game for us... but we just need your help to make it!

We are giving everyone 2 months to help out, a time limit that just so happens to be before both Christmas & mine and Zac's birthdays (wink wink) so you know what our birthday wishes are!
We love you all and cannot wait to give you this album!

Our biggest challenge will be time-management! Between my two jobs, Zac having just graduated from BSC, and Les having a full-time job plus three beautiful girls to care for, we will have to be diligent and intentional about the time we spend together to make sure we get all 13 songs recorded.

Our second biggest challenge will be working within the budget we raise! We have set our amount for $3,000 to compensate for all the help, time, and efforts that go into making this album, but it's still going to be a little scary, wondering at the end of it all, will we have enough for pressing the record into a nice package for our fans?

Thank you for your patience, love, and support as we embark on this incredible journey and endeavor to make our music come to life!
