In the year 2007, on the small island of Puerto Rico, Julian Brau and Rebecca Adorno met through mutual friends and immediately decided to work on music together.
Their layered, gloomy and murmur-like approach to songwriting captured the attention of close relatives and friends who pushed them to release their music to an audience. They named their creation Suturee, which is not a real word but could be used to describe someone who has been sutured.
After many hours of recording and mixing the songs in Julian's small studio in Puerto Rico, an album was born. It was self released in 2008 and named, Suturee. The album garnered great reviews including a feature on National Public Radio. By 2009, Julian and Rebecca relocated to New York and began working on their sophomore album.
The album, Skim the Surface, features new musical elements, contributions, and friends, including members Ryan Correira in 2009, and Raul Reymundi in 2012 during the completion of the album. It is the year 2012, and after 3 years in the making, the album is done!
During these three years the band was able to cover the costs of recording, mixing and mastering without any kind of label backing. But the time has come to press the record and they will be needing your support to make this happen.
Where is your money going?
Or why are we trying to raise at least $8,000?
Your contributions will help us immensely!
Before pressing the record, our songs must be mastered for vinyl! Once the mastering is done we need to cover the costs of the vinyl pressing and the artwork.
We also plan to shoot at least one music video and create merch to accompany our record release.
Perks are gifts you get for helping us out! Some of them include: band merch, digital downloads of Skim the Surface, a special in-studio performance, vinyl copy of the album, a copy of our first album (not that many copies left!), executive producer credit on our music video and record, or a cover of your favorite song!
