Hey everyone! It’s been quite some time since the last KSMD, and while these won’t exactly be daily articles anymore as we begin to kick off our operations once again this Q4 of 2015, you can definitely expect to see a couple of new entries or so every week. Today’s KickStart Me Daily focuses on an alternative pop band which has some refreshing tunes I’m sure you will enjoy! I gave a few of their tracks a listen and was quite pleased with the sort of jazzy vibe they captured within their music. I’m pretty excited to share these guy’s with you all so without further ado, let’s jump right into it!
The band is called “Gwen and the Good Thing’s”, an alternative pop band to be exact, based out of London/Milton Keynes. They are a fairly new group, yet extremely talented and have been establishing themselves the past 10 months writing tons of music, playing live shows, and in general getting new people on board.
Live performances and shows are always a great thing, but I think it’s safe to say that one of the biggest goals for a band or an artist, is to release a record. With a handful of tracks already ready to go, Gwen and the Good Thing’s are now ready to begin recording their Debut EP. Of course, we know this always comes at a cost as the recording process can get quite pricey. The band is currently looking for £1500 to help cover the costs of studio time, mixing, mastering, and distribution.
Of course, I won’t advise you to help fund the project without giving them a listen first, I’m sure they will spark your interest!
