Hello Friends,

Your visit here means a lot to us. Talkative has been very busy these last few months putting together our first full length LP. We’ve recorded, mixed and mastered it and we need your help releasing it!


Talkative began in the winter of 2010 and after four years of hard work and three self-recorded EP's we’ve created HOT FRUIT BARBEQUE. It’s due out June 29th and we’re very excited to share it with you! With your help we can release a full color deluxe LP complete with visual artwork and masterful sounds. This is not only a chance for us to share something we think is creative and powerful but a record that is very much a part of Cascadia, which most of you are too.



We’re asking for $1500. In contrast to many crowd funds, we’re really only asking for less than half of what we need! This goes almost exclusively to cutting the album on vinyl and distributing it. This doesn’t include mastering, mixing or paying for the engineer. Like we said, it’s recorded! Now it needs a way for you all to enjoy it. Should we surpass our goal we will use it to push the record further. This means that the money will be used to bring this record to you and everything beyond our goal will print extra copies and get them into physical record stores. 

$800 - Mixing/Mastering

$1900 - Vinyl Production

$2700 - Estimated Total Cost

Fret not if we don’t reach our goal, persistence will prevail and we will release this record if it means selling our shoes, but please, don’t make us sell our shoes! We will use whatever we receive to put towards the record, you will still get the record if our goal is not met.

This funding will help release our record, in full color, on vinyl. This helps out Portland music in a few different ways. Jeff Bond did a wonderful job recording it. He is one of Portland’s premier Audio Engineers and created an environment which Talkative thrived in. This will help him get further in the audio world! Aaron Sullivan out of Eugene, OR is creating the artwork for the album. He’s such a wonderful artist and we love to showcase his work like we did on Light Years. Finally it will put yet another record of the current Portland music climate on the books adding to the catalog of our generations sound.

If you can’t donate, please share this message with your friends. The old fashioned 'word of mouth' here goes a long way! If you’d like to help, please contact us, we could always use a hand getting sweet shows with cool bands! Thanks for listening, we appreciate all who support us!
