WINTER TIME IS WHEN THINGS slow down just a bit here in the Ocooch. Everyone gets a little less busy, and we start to plan our lives around potlucks, woodstoves, and quiet evenings around the fire, playing music.
In our house, however, we've got a bit of summer busy-ness lingering, because we're about to record our second album, "Ocooch Mountain Home." We've written a handful of tunes and songs that we're really proud of, and we've added in a few choice covers that we dearly love. In a matter of a few short weeks, we'll be recording them with the help of producer Tom Herbers, who's bringing his two-inch-tape machine down here to Viroqua to capture us in mostly live takes. Then, after the holiday, it's off to St. Louis and beyond on our next tour.
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP! We dream of a day when some friendly, hard-hustling manager takes up our cause... then we're all caviar, limousines, and penthouse suites.... In the meantime, we're building this band with a lot of sweat and a lot of help from you.
Please check out our Kickstarter page for the details. We put together some really fun rewards (and of course, you can pre-order the CD there) and we think you'll like it.
Thanks so much for everything!!!!
Oh--and our Kickstarter video features "The Broke (Ass) Waltz," one of the new songs on the record.
