With this campaign we hope to fund and promote the pressing and release of our debut album „Left Unsaid“. Beside the pressing of CDs we would like to produce a limited edition of Vinyls. With Roads&Shoes it was always our wish to create music without limitations, without constraints, without compromises or pressure. From the very beginning we knew that the journey is the reward. Thank you for tagging along on this exciting journey!
Since 2016 we are working on our debut album. So far we have been on the road as an acoustic duo but the studio recordings gave us the opportunity to let our imagination run wild. We took several month and experimented with all kinds of instruments and arrangements to find the perfect sound. We finished the recordings a short while ago and are now approaching the next step: Releasing the album on CD and Vinyl.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
We would like to release „Left Unsaid“ in April/May on all established platforms. Download, CD and our heart's desire – on Vinyl. This campaign is therefor directed to all of you who love music and support bands by going on concerts and buying the songs.
Why would you support this project?
Our music is wanderlust & homesickness, love of adventure & feeling of security, it means the wish to change everything & to feel totally happy in the moment! These are the contrasts of life that are pushing us to write our songs. We want to inspire, to be thought provoking and to bring happiness to those who hear our songs. By supporting this project you are helping us to realize this dream.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
Releasing an album has many steps which have to be financed like GEMA fee, promotion or making the music available on platforms like iTunes and spotify. Besides that there is the actual pressing of CDs, designing the artwork, printing the cover and booklet both for CD and Vinyl. Formost the last is an expensive wish that we would love to realize. And if we achieve our second goal we have many ideas for great music videos.
Who are the people behind the project?
