Here’s the news, from The Honeycutters Kickstarter page.
“We realize that saving the world (whatever that actually means) is lofty goal, but we figure it’s worth a try. And what better way to do it than with music? If you’re not familiar with the music we make, please take a listen: www.myspace.com/thehoneycutters.
We thank you all so much for being so kind in your reception of our first album, “Irene”. Amanda has written enough material for two more full band releases- maybe more. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Our dream is to record our next full band studio release at Echo Mountain Studio here in Asheville. We believe that if something is worth doing at all, it’s worth doing kick-ass awesome. If we meet our goal here, we know we will be able to put out a sophomore effort that will showcase our growth as a band while still capturing the sweetly original americana sound you’ve told us you love. We already know you love the songs, most of them have been live audience approved!”
Kickstarter seems to be working out well for a number of local artists. Earlier this year, Aaron Woody Wood made his goal and has been recording a new album at Echo Mountain Studios. Hip-hop artist Adam Strange reached his goal as well. And a group of local mural artists got enough support to head to Miami to paint at Art Basel — that campaign continues to earn pledges.
