MYKKET MORTON: we look back onto a year with a bunch of live gigs, a year of doing studio work and recording, a year filled with experience shared with you, sorts of ups and downs. It's been a good year with lot of fun and joy, smaller and not so small gigs and we've been together with you. We are thankful and happy. Let us invite you to join our way into a "New World", to share the next steps with us. We'd appreciate that by heart.
We are somewhat proud to see what has been achieved within this short time. But we realize that we need you now to do the next steps. CD: done by ourselves, yes! :) Hey, and we managed to produce a Vinyl on our own too! But we'd like to visit you on tour: the "New World"- Tour has to and will come. And there are a lot of things to manage, videos, promotion everywhere, taking new pictures, advertising, band bus maintenance, some technical stuff to get our work done better. Join us, get into that boat we row and do some strokes with us: new songs are arising and want to be played the "New World" wants to be toured.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
You who've attended a show with us know: we are a live band. We like to play live. We like to play for you even more and better yet. We want to share our music with you. 40+ concerts later we know: you are ageless and timeless. You are 2 years old and 90. And between. You love your freedom of your own interpretations and emotions. Own compositions performed with real instruments, rhythmically often boppy unconventionally. You who this project MYKKET MORTON is for are kind of like ourselves.
Why would you support this project?
We do an own style, but we could name some elements as pop, some indie, add folk and noticable parts of rock and ska, if we had to ;) We make music by heart and are writing lyrics by hand. Our lifes are different and sometimes upside down and back. Everything is possible. Mourning, crying, shouting, being angry and soft and cuddly or goofy. Our aim is to reach and touch you by our music. And every album, every disc, every song, which comes to life as a product arising indepently, aside from conventions and music industry is strenghthening a living music culture. So join us, be our companion for some strokes or more while we are rowing that boat into a "New World".
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
A lot of Fotoshooting, new videos, merchandise, press material, posters, t-shirts, sticker and other merch stuff and so on (what would you like to have us come up with?). There is a need to fix and tune some instruments, a mixing console, because Emil is heavily expanding his set, ear protection/monitoring, preparing our band bus for the tour and preparation and planning and realiation of the tour itself.

And there are you, the crowd, who are supporting us, now for a year already, and our families who are an invaluable support at our concerts too. So again, let's row that boat together to new adventures, emotions, friendships ... whereever it will run to. Ahoi!
