Our NEW CD project

We are continuing to raise funds to get this AMAZING CD project finished! Everyone who pre-purchases the music gets exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the creation of this CD via video blogs, mp3s, and more.   

If you're new to us, we write and perform songs about our journey to living powerfully, authentically, with open hearts and minds. We're raising the funds to finish the CD that we were born to make - at a level of audio excellence allowing for placement into film and TV. 

The music industry has changed dramatically and the usual sources of financing that existed do not exist in the same way anymore.   This, other changes in the industry, and a desire to keep their own songs and creative freedom leaves musicians (and their fans) looking for ways to get music made at a level of quality that fully expresses its beauty and power.  

We, like many artists today, are fan-funding the bands first CD 'Ricochet' - meaning we are going directly to our fans to get this project funded. In return for your contribution, you receive great stuff: our new CD with special perks, merchandise, concerts, personalized songs and more. You become a part of the All Souls' circle, with access to exclusive behind-the-scenes blog posts, mp3s and videos giving you the inside scoop each step of the way.

Here is the Indiegogo Campaign video. This has ended but we continue aiming for the goal. We will have a new version of the video soon!  

This is a 'Sneak Peek' at one of the songs (in progress) on the CD.

With the money we raise, we’ll finish recording, mixing, mastering & pressing the first 1000 CDs. The total amount required for this type of project is minimally 11-15K. Our goal is set for $12,000; added to what we have already spent on recording, we will have the funds to produce the CDs. :) Keep in mind that the average small label or vanity project will spend anywhere from $25,000 to $200,000 on a full-length CD. Our budget is tight enough that we feel we can create a world-class project for less than 15K. Even if we don't reach our goal, we will still apply all of the funds we raise toward the project and keep moving forward. If we surpass our goal, the rest will be used for making LPs (yaaaaay!), marketing, booking and promotion, hiring a PR team to bring our music to a wider audience. We also have a huge wish to fund our music videos, as video is now essential to successful marketing. 

You can also join the team by sharing our funding campaign with other music lovers. Crowdfunding works by friends and fans contributing to the campaign and spreading the word far and wide. So please email, post and tweet to your heart's content! :-)




Big Sonic Kisses,
