The “Five for Congo” campaign ended on March 28th, and in 14 days we gave away 161,245 album downloads on Noisetrade! With approximately 8,000 people leaving a tip, we were able to raise $71,566! These funds will be given in full to World Relief to help with their work to bring peace and restoration to the DR Congo. The success of this campaign took us all off guard, and all I can say is that we’re amazed and thankful. What a joy! – Josh
For anyone who was bummed that the limited edition box set of “The Sea In Between” sold out the day that it was released…we have good news! We’ve done a more slimline redesign of the film’s casing, but with all the same goodies inside. It’s currently being manufactured and it’s scheduled to begin shipping in April. You can pre-order on “The Sea In Between” website or click on the product ad below.
After 2 sold out tours on the west coast and the northeast, I’m excited to team up with Brooklyn’s Mason Jar Music for the 3rd leg of our “Sea In Between” documentary release tour. This time we’ll be working our way through the southeast, with stops in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee. When we started these tours, I wasn’t sure how the audience would respond to a night comprising of the viewing full length film followed by an hour long performance with a cast of 12! But, I must say, the dynamic nature of the event has proven to create a really special evening, not only for the audience, but also for us! See you next week Southeast.
It’s my pleasure to announce that the “Studio Campaign” was a complete success! In the 5 weeks that we ran the campaign we were able to raise approximately $110,000 - with almost $45,000 of that arriving in the final 24 hours! Needless to say, I’m in total awe, deeply thankful, and above all excited to begin working on making the space a reality. With these funds we’ll be able to not only build the studio structure, but also furnish it with some choice pieces of recording hardware. A heartfelt “THANKS!” to all who helped to make this possible through your prayers, encouragement, and generous donations. My family and I feel incredibly loved and supported by you all. For those of you receiving the limited edition poster, they’ll be screen to printed shortly, so you can expect to receive a package by mail in early November. Thanks again everyone! ~ Josh
