Hold Your Horses - First album

 

Hi!

 

We’re Hold Your Horses! a polyphonic pop band from Paris. We’re on a mission to record our first studio album.

 

For this we need your help.

Up until now, we’ve remained independent and unsigned. Rather than wait for a record deal, we want to move forward on our own… But making an album is expensive. You may not know it, but there’s wide range of costs that add up quickly. We’re going to record in July in a wonderful studio called Mikrokosm in Lyon.

On top of the cost of actually recording, we need to practice and pay for transportation. After that comes the tricky and expensive mixing and mastering phase. Then we have to press our album onto CDs and vinyls and pay for complicated sounding things like “mechanical reproduction rights”. Last, but not least, we want to hire a press agent to promote our album and help spread the love.

 

We’ve done the math and all this will cost us upwards of 12,000€ (or roughly $15,000)

 

We’ve already saved up some money…but we want this album (our first) to be the best in the world…

 

AND THAT'S WHERE YOU COME IN!

 

We need to raise 10,000 €.

Any donation big or small will be greatly appreciated. By donating, you help us…but you’re also a winner! Check out the sidebar on the right to see the gifts and goodies we’ll give you in exchange including pre-ordering our album! Just think: you’ll have our music before everybody else! If by some miracle we raise more than our target, the CD will look even better and we might even be able to make a new music video, so don’t hesitate to keep on giving!

 

Thanks a lot for your support!

 

We really appreciate it!

 

Love,

Hold Your Horses!
