Worum geht es in dem Projekt?
Gløde is the sound of the five-piece band around Simon Glöde, the young singer/songwriter from northern Germany. Growing up in and around Denmark, Simon has always been making music independently and continues to do so with his band out of Hamburg.
After playing hundreds of mostly self-booked shows all around the world over the past four years and the independent release of his ‘Boogie’-EP, Simon settled in the city of Hamburg, which has since served as both base and as inspiration for the songs, the friends, the team and the sound that is now called ‘Gløde’.
The songs are creative works of the band’s past two years together, expressing the struggle of finding a natural balance in an urban surrounding, and have been captured by producer Sebastian Gimm in intense live-sessions.

Was sind die Ziele und wer ist die Zielgruppe?
The goal is to make a fully independent album with 10 songs. The cost of this is around €20,000 and includes production, mixing, mastering and a music video. It does not include promotion, as we will be looking for partners once the album is finished. The missing amount will be supplied by the band and kind foundations.
Warum sollte jemand dieses Projekt unterstützen?
This is music for dancing, for laughing and for crying and this album will make it possible for us to go out and share our joy of making music for years to come.
Was passiert mit dem Geld bei erfolgreicher Finanzierung?
The money will be used to pay for production (including rental costs etc.), mixing by Ryan Gilligan (for whom Simon once scrubbed floors during his time at Electric Lady Studios in New York), mastering, and finally the production of a music video.
Wer steht hinter dem Projekt?
Simon Glöde on vocals and songs, Julian Elsesser on guitar, Martin Baumgartner on bass, Max Schneider on drums, Tom Gatza on keys and synths and Sebastian Gimm on the knobs.
There are no managers or labels floating around. We’re very proud to be making this journey on our own for now. This album is a big step and making it is a dream come true, doing everything how we think it should be.
This makes this crowdfunding campaign all the more important for us - we can’t do this without you!
