My name is Zach, and I am a member of the Virginia based rock band Mae. Over the 9 or 10 years of touring and creating with the small collective, I naturally began to explore my own musical ideas which did not mesh with the sonic aesthetic of Mae. Those ideas have evolved into a small collection of songs that I want to record. The desire I have to record the songs and the curiosity in how they will end up sounding is too persistent to ignore.

I am using the Indiegogo platform out of necessity, as I am currently enrolled to acquire a Master's Degree at Old Dominion University which demands financial priority. The completion of this small project depends on you, the donor. I want to express the degree of my reliance on you via the perks I offer. I wanted to keep this funding as simple as possible so I did not include many price points and did not exceed $50. I will not ask you to donate any amount of money that is not reflective of what you will receive in return. I will not promise anything that cannot be delivered from my own house to yours.

Finally, this is an experiment. If I do succeed in the production and sale of vinyl, then I want to reward those who donate. Any profit made from the sale of this product will be given, in part, back to those donors. If I make any profit from the sale of this record, then I will take half of whatever I receive though sales over an extended period of time and split it amongst those who donated $50, the highest amount possible to donate.

All of you who donate (however much you donate) will be regularly informed on every aspect of the process and will be mentioned by name on the final product.

I have set the funding goal for $3500. This is meant to include recording costs, money to help pay for an initial vinyl pressing, shirts, and incidentals.

I've included a demo song for you to check out. Just click over on the "Gallery" tab.

I miss Mae. This guy's book "Guilt. Doubt. Indolence." is also a quick, fun read.

Hey everyone, Zach here. I'm surprised and flattered to see the Unsung Zeros love in the comments. Thanks! Please check out the campaign. If you have any questions at all about anything, I'll be checking back in to this thread frequently to address them. Or, just comment on the campaign page linked above. I hope everyone is having a grand Monday. Thanks!
