A new album is coming and a Kickstarter is now live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1616248143/rob-nance-new-album
The last year and half has been a blast. Lost Souls and Locked Doors was officially released in June 2013 and along with trusty sidekick brother Jordan, plus other musician friends, we have played well over 200 shows in support. Some have been great, others have been crap, but we’ve put significant time and resources into playing and travelling all over the place and it’s been great.
This fall, with the help of some of the same characters as before, and with the addition of some new faces, we will make a new full length record. We plan on doing most of the work in the mountains of North Carolina where we are all comfortable and lucky to have talent and expertise available.
Of course, even working with friends and under favorable conditions requires both time and at least a baseline of cost. We’re asking for a little more this time around for three reasons:
1) Recording. Those involved in the project want to make sure we are comfortable and thorough in the recording process. Last time, necessity dictated that work had to be done as expeditiously as possible. Now, with a little experience, we want to make sure we get it right.
2) Promotion. Touring has brought slow (sometimes very slow) growth to our listening audience but there is now a network of friends and fans that have supported us and we look forward to building on that. Therefore, with a little more funding, we’d like to do a full promotional push and tour for the release of the new album.
3) Vinyl. We’d like to have at least a small batch of vinyl albums available. It’s expensive. Most scenarios call for a minimum run of something like 300 records at a cost of around $10 a piece to press. It’s not cheap but we believe it to be a worthwhile goal.
As this project rumbles forward like a three legged dog chasing a wet squirrel, things are coming together but we’ll need some help to catch that little bastard. We ask for your support in making a solid album that will be delivered in early 2015.
Thanks for your interest and hope to see you soon,
