We are June, Thuy, and Ryan and we are the band, Soft Shadows, from Portland, OR. For one year we have been actively playing shows in our hometown, hitting the pavement hard in successfully completing a west coast tour and recorded a debut full-length album, "Reverb Is For Lovers", which we're excited to announce is finished!
album was completed close to home, with only trusted hands working on
it. David Kruk, who is a long time friend of June, mastered the album in
Los Angeles. Our next step is to release this album that we have very
intimately produced ourselves. We did everything on our own from writing
to creating the album artwork because we wanted every detail to be
perfect, and paid for everything out of our own pockets. Being a musician
during this internet age, it's becoming more and more of a requirement
to be a jack-of-all-trades (booking, social media promoting, webmaster,
general managing etc...). As artists with daytime jobs, there's so much
we can do that's beyond our scope, such as solid promotion to a bigger
audience, that we feel this album deserves. Through a 2-week Indiegogo
campaign, we're hoping to raise funds for a professional radio campaign
towards independent, non-commercial radio stations which will help reach
new listeners. The goal of $1500 would help cover the cost
of one month of radio promotion. Any funds beyond that will go towards
gas money for tour and merchandise (hopefully t-shirts coming soon)!
your generous contributions, you have the chance to pre-order our debut
album, "Reverb Is For Lovers"! The release date is set October 22nd,
2013 - very soon! We also put together a bunch of other fun perks to be a
part of you can check out on the right-hand side of this page. If you're located outside of the US, please add $10 to cover for international costs if the package requires shipping.
We couldn't have made it this far to worry about such things if it weren't for everyone who has supported us along the way. Your contribution means greatly to us, not only because it'll help physically fund in our music endeavors, but inspirationally as well in having faith in our craft. Thank you-
P.S. For the artwork perks, here's a general idea of Thuy's sketches and work.
