As a fellow music lover I wanted to invite you to join me in supporting an exciting new music project, Friends with the Weather, from some of my favorite musicians and songwriters: Seth Hendricks, Chris Good, and David Hupp. This project is their first album of original music in over 6 years and the first time that they're recording in a professional studio, with an outside producer (Seth Bernard!!), with the support of a well-respected indie label (Earthwork Music) and a whole crew of top-notch professional players (mostly from the Ann Arbor/MI music communities).
Friends with the Weather is in the final 10 days of a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their debut album. Both lyrically and musically, this is music that I believe the world needs!
If you're interested in learning more please visit http://kck.st/28TbYt4 to see their kickstarter video and read up on the great rewards available for backers from pre-order levels ($15) to house concerts ($1500) and a whole slew of options in between.
Here's a taste of the project with the first 2 singles off the album and a special live, acoustic session recording of a cover song that will be a featured kickstarter reward.

A community of talented & soulful friends & collaborators coming together to breathe life & intention into this new project. Bringing a harmonious depth and groove and spirit to the songs while honoring the many paths (funk, soul, jazz, rock, world music, pop, folk, bluegrass) in which all of the contributors have travelled.
