Josh Netsky has released several self-produced and self released albums and EP's over the past few years from his home in Rochester, NY.
Down and Under is his first studio recorded, professionally mixed and mastered full length. The album was recorded in the basement of engineer Kent Wilson's beautiful stone house in Rochester and mixed by Jonathan Visger of Absofacto and Dale Earnhardt JR JR.
Check out some clips from the album in the video! Almost every song on the album will also be accompanied by a music video by Josh's brother Adam Netsky.
The album is being mastered by Joe Lambert who has mastered some of my favorite recent albums by Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Sharon Van Etten, etc. in New York. Yes, I stopped referring to myself in the third person there to make that point... back to original form - Josh will VERY much appreciate any help you're willing to provide toward paying for the album and spreading the word!
What We Need & What You Get
We're looking to raise $2,000 or more to help cover production costs. This includes recording, mixing, mastering, replicating and packaging the album. Our current goal is enough money to help in the costs significantly - it will not cover the entire costs. The more money we raise, the higher the potential for the album!
There are many reward options listed alongside the page - and remember you can donate in between any of the options as well.
This is my first venture into creating an independent album and reaching out to others for production (mixing and mastering). The mixing and mastering have been done by two of my absolute favorite people making music (and making it sound good) today!
Your contributions will help me to make sure I can produce a great sounding album - and on top of that we'll be using the music to create music videos that we've tossed around many intriguing ideas for.
Other Ways You Can Help
The most important way you could help is to donate - no matter how much you're willing to put into the project it will mean SO much to me if you can help in our fundraising.
The next best thing you could do is to share our project with friends and family - let them know what we're working on and what they can do to help us! Any form of sharing will be greatly appreciated.
