Crowdfunding

Since 2014 we have been working on our first album. It took a long time, with many interruptions due to other work, and life in general, but early 2016 we had all the songs ready in a rough version and we went for it. Planning was to record everything before the summer, to mix during the summer, print and release after the summer. We ran a crowdfunding campain in spring 2016 in order to finance pressing, artwork, and mechanical rights. The campain was a great succes, and donators from Holland, France and Greece brought together almost 100% of the funding target, which paid a substantial part of the production.
Now that we are finally ready to press the CD, we would like once more to emphasize our gratitude to the crowdfunders. While we managed to make this CD within a relatively small budget – for the high quality product that it is –  that small budget was for us here in Greece a big sum of money which we could not afford to pay all on our own.  And apart of financial support, it also felt great to know you people were waiting for us to finish the project! We hope you will enjoy the results! Our thanks also go to our musician friends who put their time and energy into this project without being paid. We will post some information on each of you on this site as soon as we find the time!

Some crowdfunders are:

Christophoros Rizos, Kostas Katsilis, Joop Caspers, Wouter Hollanders, Marjoleine Schoeman, Inez Huizinga, Leonieke Verhoog, Gretha Hollanders, Rob van Maanen, Irene van Donselaar, Trinet Constandse, Toos Andriesse, Maarten Grachten, Izhar Elias, Jules Fransen, Carl Cleves, Bernard Meulman, Ronald Rietman, Ben Engbers, and many others who prefer to remain anonymous.

Thank you very much and enjoy music and other beautiful things in life!
