Tuesday, October 1, the GRAMMY-nominated and Dove Award winning band The Choir is launching a month-long Kickstarter campaign to fund their upcoming 15th studio release along with a brand new live album. Partnering with Livestream, The Choir will broadcast a free online acoustic concert tomorrow evening from 8-9pm CST to celebrate the upcoming album releases.
The members of The Choir - comprised of Steve Hindalong, Derri Daugherty, Tim Chandler, and Dan Michaels - are thrilled to be recording new music and continuing their musical journey after many years together.
"Music is a journey for us," shares Daugherty. "It's this path that we've been going down, and as we've traveled it more and more over the years through the release of our independent albums, tours and being connected through social media, we've realized that not only is it a journey for us but that it's a journey for our audience too. They have truly become part of our story." Click here to find out more about this campaign with a video interview featuring Daugherty and Hindalong.
Continuing their tradition of creating a weekend experience built around the release of new albums, an exclusive group of Choir supporters will have the opportunity to attend the recording for the live album on March 1 of next year in Nashville. In addition to securing Gold Circle seating, these fans will be part of the closed rehearsal that day, dinner with The Choir and spend the following day sharing private excursions around the city.
Daugherty continues, "By working in partnership with our listeners, we believe we will have the ability to spend more time in the studio to craft songs, create and experiment. We think by doing that we're going to inspire ourselves and from that inspiration we're going to make music that will inspire others. We feel like at this point we can make one of the best records we've ever done."
