We are a mixture of pop musicians, part-time hippies and chansonniers and have been making funk, soul, folk, and liedermaching-infused groove music since 2008. With our next, crowdfunded album, we are setting out to evolve our acoustic sound while staying true to our beginnings, playing music on the streets and in pubs. superreligion.org soundcloud.com/valentinethetruebelievers facebook.com/valentinethetruebelievers

What is this project all about?

We would like to have our album mixed, mastered and produced. The recordings are already done - now we need a fresh pair of ears and outside knowledge: As capable as our drummer Maik is when it comes to recording, as inexperienced are we as a band when it comes to stereo images, sound effects and fine tuning. This is why we are looking for a studio to help us mold hundreds of single tracks into one cohesive album.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Our previous CDs ("Mélodie de Séjour", 2011, and "Platt du Jour", 2012) were entirely self-produced. Our goal now is to not simply make another full-length album but to evolve our sound. And we realize that we need help in order to achieve this. Well, and for that we need: money. Because we want to be able to pay the people we employ for this fairly.

This project is for everyone who has seen us play live before or who has heard our music on one of our recordings, for everyone who has been asking us for years when the next album is coming out, and everyone who is only just getting to know us now, in short: for everyone who wants to support us!

Why would you support this project?

Only with your support is this album going to be really great! Sure, we would probably finish the album on our own even after a failed crowdfunding campaign - but every CD we would sell, we would sell with tears in our eyes, knowing that it could have been made to sound so much better...
Also, we have come up with a number of different "Thank You"s for every supporter: from a "Believer" burlap bag to a private concert.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

Our low-budget financial plan (without buffer) looks like this: 2,000 Euros for mixing and mastering and 1,500 Euros production cost (incl. art work by Jakob Adebahr).

The Burlap bags and T-Shirts will produced espescially for this project and will be paid by ourselves.

Who are the people behind the project?

We, the band, are the people behind this project:

Valentina (vocals, glockenspiel, kazoo, melodica, booking)
and her Believers
Viktor (violin, vocals)
Tine (accordeon, setlists)
Lars (bass, busdriver)
Maik a.k.a. Jatta Wakiki (drums, recordings, stage technician)
Malte (lyrics, guitar, booking)

Thank you for your support!

Yours Valentine & The True Believers
