We are The Archers, a folk/rock band from Victoria BC and we've been a band since our grade 12 year of high school.
Over the past two years we have achieved things we never thought possible when we started: We won the title of BC's Best teen Band of 2011, released a home-recorded EP, completed two western Canadian tours, we were promoted by a victoria radio station (The Zone@91.3) in the month of June via their 'Zone Band of the Month' program, played a few local Vancouver Island festivals including Rifflandia 4 and 5, and most recently we were nominated for the Young Performer of the Year Award in the 2012 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
We are now ready to head into studio to record our first full-length album. We have the producer, the studio, and the material; all we need is the money.
We are asking for $7000 via IndieGoGo, but the entire project will take much more than that. In return for your pledges we will be offering you rewards such as:
-signed hard copies
-VIP tickets to shows
-and much more
The more you give the more you get. If you are not in the position to help financially you can always help by telling your friends and family, sharing this link, and passing it along to anyone you think might be interested. Anything you can do is appreciated. All the money we get from your pledges will go towards studio costs and producer fees. We will be providing you with updates during pre-production and recording so you can see how your pledges are helping us.
We’re excited to see what doors may open for us with the recording of this album. For all our fans who have supported us thus far a huge thank you to you; we wouldn't be anywhere without your support.
A special thank you to Dave Wallace of Innovate Imageworks for filming and editing our video for us, to Jon Williams of The Zone@91.3 for lending us his voice for the voice overs, and Adam Sutherland of Infinity Studio for lending us his studio free of charge, for the time it took to shoot the voice over scenes. We couldn't have done it without you, so thank you!
