Help Uh Huh Baby Yeah! Make A Record!
by Kevin Fletcher
(Louisville, KY, USA)
UHBY! has been offered the chance to record with Jeff Sahyoun (letlive.) and need your help to make it happen!
Uh Huh Baby Yeah! have been going strong for almost ten years. Sean and Kevin started living out the dream in the early months of 2004, not knowing the journey they were embarking on would dictate the decisions we made for the rest of our lives
Now, with 2 albums, thousands of units sold, countless tours nationwide including a stint as the official catering band for Vans Warped Tour 2013, and the future at our fingertips, UHBY! have nowhere to go but up. However, we would not have been able to do what we have done so far without you. And the same goes for the future. A golden opportunity has presented itself in the form of Jeff Sahyoun (guitarist/songwriter of letlive.) who has offered to take us under his wing and record our 3rd album.
Jeff is the studio mastermind behind letlive.'s 2 latest LPs, Fake History and The Blackest Beautiful and has appeared on countless works for Interscope Records, Sony Records, Drive Thru Records and more!
This is an amazing opportunity that has befallen UHBY! and is the next step in advancing our music, careers and lives. Once recorded, this 3rd album will open more doors for us than we ever dreamed possible.
We Can't Do This Without YOU!
The cost of recording isn't cheap; and of course, nothing in life is free. Add the cost of mixing, mastering, traveling to Los Angeles, CA, lodging and food, and you've got a pretty hefty bill.
Let's break it down this way:
Cost of recording: $2,500
Cost of mixing/mastering: $1,000
Cost of travel/lodging: $1,000
Cost of food: $500
We understand $5,000 is a lot of money; otherwise, we'd have it ourselves to just dish out for the costs. This is a huge sum of money and it won't be easy to raise it without your help. That's why we've put together some awesome perks to reward you for contributing to the cause; some practical and others just downright ludicrous!
Want to get your name tattooed on a band member? Want to win a Squire bass signed by the band? What about the wolf mask from the 'Dances With Wolves' music video? Or are you down to party? Want the boys to throw a house party/show at your house? There's so much to choose from, and it's right at your fingertips!
Check out all of our perks for contributing to the right. Find the amount/perk that's right for you and go for it. There's no one stopping you but YOU!
Once again, we understand this is a lot of money. And we also understand the possibility is strong that we may not reach our goal. We're totally prepared to accept that and can assure you that ANY and ALL funds raised, regardless of amount, will be used solely for the purpose of recording this album.
Music Needs Us
Over the course of the last 4/5 years, we've fully funded everything we've done. From mixing/mastering/pressing/distribution of our last 2 albums - all the way down to our merch designs and printing - we've had to pay out of pocket to fund our dream. And what is our dream exactly?
To make a career of our talents. We want to become a household name. We want our music to grace the ears of every person in the world. There's so much missing in music today that we have the ability to give back, and we want YOU to be part of that. Help us take music back and breathe new life into a once flourishing industry. The danger is missing from rock & roll. Too many acts are playing it safe and lying down, doing whatever they're told. That's not us. We thrive on rebellion. ROCK & ROLL thrives on rebellion.
So, let's do this together. Help us join the ranks of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Queen - all the bands that created music that sparked something in people. All the bands that made people question authority and think for themselves.
We can do this. YOU can do this.
Can't Donate? That's ok!
We totally understand if you're unable to make a contribution. Money is tight and it certainly doesn't grow on trees. But you can still help! You've got a Facebook, right? Tumblr? Twitter? What about a blog or website? Share this with ALL your friends/followers/family and help us get the word out!
We can't thank you enough for what you've already done for us. We just want to give back. We want you to have the most amazing album we can possibly create, and we're so close to making it.
So take a look at what we have to offer. If something strikes your fancy, or if you just want to contribute a couple bucks, have at it.
And please, don't forget to share.
See you all soon!
Uh Huh Baby Yeah!
