Southern California’s Lobate Scarp, headed up by Progarchy’s very own Adam Sears, recently announced a kickstarter to help fund their second studio album. From spacey album art courtesy of David A. Hardy to well-crafted progressive songs, Lobate Scarp deliver on all fronts. The band has announced that Billy Sherwood and Jon Davison of Yes, and Ryo Okumoto Spock’s Beard are scheduled to make guest appearances. Rich Mouser, whose mixing repertoire includes Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic, and The Neal Morse Band, will once again mix the album, as well as join as a producer. There are multiple pledge levels with different rewards for each level. Definitely check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/timeandspace/lobate-scarps-2nd-studio-album
It’s a tough world out there for any line of work these days. I can only imagine how tough it is to make a go of it in the music industry, particularly in a genre where the fan base is spread so thinly across the globe. Kickstarters give fans of the genre the opportunity to support their favorite artists. If you haven’t heard Lobate Scarp yet, check out their recent EP and their first album.
