Sponsor a Day in the Studio! 

Hello friends, family and fellow music lovers! 
After two years of creating, crafting and performing our music, The Sweet Goodbyes (that's us!!) are excited to head into the studio on March 25th, 2017 to begin recording our first full-length album.  We are proud of the songs we've written and produced together and feel that what we have to share is important. Our music is about authentic human experience and our celebrated connection to the earth and each other.  We believe this message is needed in our current cultural and political climate and WE NEED HELP getting our music and our message out into the world. This is where YOU come in. 

The Details: 
We are thrilled to be recording with the talented Michael Connolly at Empty Sea Studios in Seattle, WA (http://www.emptysea.com/recording/studio-recording/). Not only does Michael have an impeccable ear for acoustic recordings, he is also an amazing multi-instrumentalist who will be able to tastefully embellish our songs. 

A day at Empty Sea Studios will cost us $500. To give you and idea of what that buys us...8 hours in the studio gives us enough recording time to lay out the tracks for 2-3 songs (without any extra instrumentation). Our goal is to lock down 5 days in the studio to record the basic tracks for our entire album. The cost for 5 days of recording will be approximately $2500.  We are hopeful that we can find 10 people who would like to buy us a HALF-DAY in the studio (for $250) or 5 donors who would like to buy us ONE WHOLE DAY in the studio for $500. And heck, we're not opposed to finding donors who might want to donate more than a day either...will you be one of our Studio Day Donors? 

**All of our Studio Day Donors will have the option to be included in our album liner notes and of course will also be the first to receive a copy of our album before it is officially released.** 

Looking forward: 
The donations collected during this initial fundraising campaign will go directly to our first 5 studio sessions. Any excess donations will go towards mixing and mastering the album. In April, we will be launching a crowdfunding campaign to secure the remaining funds needed to mix, master and produce the actual CD. Our plan is to release our album by August 1st, 2017. 

We recognize that this is a big ask and understand that not everyone's financial circumstances allow them to make such a generous contribution to a project like this. We are so very grateful for your consideration.  If you are able and interested in becoming a Studio Day Donor (any amount), please email Amber and Lisa at: thesweetgoodbyes@gmail.com so that we can set up your donation. Thank you so much for your support!

New Album Crowdfunding to begin soon! 

Hello! The Sweet Goodbyes are coming out of our winter hibernation and are thrilled to be planning for our first Kickstarter campaign launch in early April! We will be asking for support from our friends and fans and perfect strangers who believe in our music. We feel very strongly that more than ever, the music that we are making is important. It is necessary for our world in these times of chaos. The harmonies we are weaving and the lyrics we are singing need to be accessible to folks outside of the live shows we play. We've been told over and over again that our music soothes the soul, it moves the spirit, and it ignites positivity in those who hear it. Now is the perfect time to illuminate the masses with our songs. Will you help The Sweet Goodbyes record our debut album??? Stay tuned....
