Hail Lovers of Rock! Thanks for taking the time. Historically, musicians have always had Patrons. The 20th (and 21st) century idea of not having that kind of support & being sold like chewing gum is relatively new & not at all viable (or tasteful) for many of us. We're One Soul Thrust & we're lifelong, committed musicians who, in spite of that chewing gum analogy, continue to make music. Because we must. This isn't a path you choose; it chooses you. We have musicianship, experience, a unique & gifted songwriter & our own rock vibe when we play together. As time has passed, it has become more & more challenging to continue to release musical works. As you may know, it costs many thousands of dollars to properly record, produce & release an album of quality. Each album is an investment that indie artists make out of our own pockets. On top of that, gigs/shows are pay-to-play. (Translation: you pay to go to work, instead of the place where you work paying you for your time & services. Ludicrous, isn't it?) This unreal reality has driven a lot of us underground, into our own studios. Now the studio is great fun, but performance is where the most Magick is. It's our favourite thing to do & where we really shine because Things Happen. Things that never happened before & never happen again. That's The Art of Performance & it's crucial for Fans & Artists alike. It's a symbiotic relationship that must be fed for us all to grow within that Relationship. Performance is as Real as it ever gets. The Gift of the difficulty of producing any kind of musical work, especially an event - & a rock show must be an event - is that we see that DIY can really mean DIYWF (Do It Yourself With Friends). We realize that we need assistance in presenting shows, not to mention, we need assistance to simply continue to do everything a band does. Care to be a part of our work, making us a part of your World? It would be cool to have our Life Journeys intersect in this way. Help us continue to do what we do- make music, record it, video it, play it live- and help us raise the bar on the standards we're able to offer you, since in our experience, Lovers of Music are The Best.  Please read on...

Our 4th album. It'll take at least a month to record & an unknown amount of time to be mixed & mastered. "Unknown" because art isn't 2+2=4, Soulthrusters. :) (Plus people have other work that must be done, sometimes other musical projects to fit into a schedule and sometimes even day-jobs, since the industry went kaboom.) No costs are ever fixed but we budget & we're great at coming in on budget. Some examples of costs are...we need to pay our producer Alessandro Del Vecchio, who is the 5th member of this band & crucial to the project. There are travel fees, more than just an uber across town, because this globe is large & musicians end up in all kinds of places at any given moment in time. We must feed everyone whom we don't normally feed, pay for graphics & all other fees associated with every bit of getting an album into your hands. This wouldn't cover the full cost of a release nor a release show, but if for some beautiful reason we come in under budget on the album, the excess of this would go right into a theatre show for release.
