We Were Lovers is making our DEBUT album 'Pyramids' and we need YOUR help!
We've spent the last year recording our first full length album and we can't wait to share it with you! BUT we need your help to get it professionally mixed, mastered and released and into your headphones and stereos around the world. By pre-ordering the album, you will not only be a part of WWL' story, but you will also receive some sweet exclusives and unique experiences, not to mention the satisfaction of knowing you're helping us get closer to making our dreams come true and bringing our passion to life!
Who is WWL?
WWL is Ash Lamothe and Elsa Gebremichael, Electro / Pop duo from Saskatoon, SK, CANADA. We've been working hard over the last 4 years, and in that time have released two EP's - the latest recorded in NYC with Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House, TV On The Radio, Grizzly Bear), toured North America multiple times playing at festivals like SXSW in Austin, TX, NXNE & CMW in Toronto, and have opened for awesome artists - Tegan and Sara, Mother Mother, Janelle Monae, Diamond Rings, The Arkells, and more.
We also just made our first music video with Sica Films for our new single 'Islands'! Check it out - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vy84Y87tRvM
What is this project all about?
Our project is to mix, master and professionally release our debut album, 'Pyramids'. We have the opportunity to work with a producer in LA to mix and master our album and his expertise and talent will take our songs to a high quality professional level. This is important to us because we want to give you the best audio experience we can.
A lot of things go along with professionally releasing an album and we want to make sure we have all of these things in place for this release. Along with mixing and mastering the album, your contributions will help us make some other amazing things happen! Such as:
- Album Art
- CD Production (no vinyl at this time, but definitely in the future)
- Publicity (gets the album more exposure and attention)
- Make Another Music Video (for our second Single)!
- Fly to LA to work with a Creative Director and showcase for Industry Professionals
What do YOU get?
First of all, EVERY contribution, no matter the size, means so incredibly much to us. You truly will be a part of our story and this album, and by helping us make this project happen you're helping us get closer to realizing our dreams. To show you how much we appreciate you, for every donation we've put together some sweet packages and the more you donate, the more awesome the perks and exclusives are!
WAIT. There's MORE???
YES!!! Once we reach our funding goal for this project, and for every dollar raised above our goal, we will donate 25% of the overage to GIRLS ROCK CAMP TORONTO. We strongly believe in the importance of music for kids, especially girls, and would love to be able to contribute to this great organization. For more info, check out - http://girlsrocktoronto.org/
THANK YOU SOOO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
WE LOVE YOU! XOXOXO
Love, Elsa & Ash
