WHO WE ARE
We are a folk rock band from South Louisiana, playing our own special mix of bluegrass, blues, and outlaw country. We started out two years ago at a songwriter competition, quickly gained local acclaim and began playing wherever we could - from the streets of New Orleans to Dallas honky-tonks to regional festivals.

WHAT WE’RE DOING
The last couple of years we’ve been writing and improving our songs and presenting fun, energetic shows to people everywhere we go. We think it’s time to channel this music into an album that our fans can take home and enjoy after the show is over. The album will be titled “Gunslinger” and will feature many of our original songs with one or two covers thrown in. We have been in the studio recording tracks for this album for a few months now, but we need your help to finish recording and turn those raw data files into a complete album.
WHAT WE NEED
Here’s how much money we need to get this album done right…
$1500 for studio costs: recording, mixing, and mastering the music for the album
$1250 to press the album onto CDs and set up digital publishing (iTunes, amazon mp3, etc)
$1500 for merchandise (t-shirts, posters, etc)
$350 for photography and video
$250 for recording expenses: new drum heads, new strings, session musicians
$300 for IndieGoGo fees
WHAT YOU GET
In return for contributing to this project, you get something back from us! Of course you can pre-buy the album ($10 for digital album or $25 for CD plus T-shirt). But if you’re really awesome and want to contribute more we have some special perks for you – like a prize pack full of Rayo Brothers goodies, a unique cover of any song you choose, or a private show at your home or event! Even if you can only pitch in two bucks we really appreciate it, and we will send you a single from the new album months before the album release.
