General information

Sundayers have been supporting Commons and free music for seven years. Our first demo and the two later albums were published under Creative Commons licenses, and completely self-edited, with no intermediaries influencing our way to perceiving music.

We've always believed in collective composition of our songs, in the benefits of sharing, and the understanding of the culture as a right, not a privilege.

Our project has grown up thanks to you, who have been listening to us, supporting us and coming to our shows.

Now we need you to participate as co-producers in our next album in order for it to come true.

Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.

The album will consist of twelve songs, which will enable you to enjoy the powerful and creative blend of styles that define us. Lots of work put into composing and shaping the album together and including the new members to the band results in flawless harmony and originality of each song.

It will be registered at Safe Creative (http://www.safecreative.org) under a Creative Commons 3.0 license, ment for any user to enjoy listening, downloading and sharing our songs (as long as it's non-profit driven).

If we manage to achieve the minimum amount of money needed to record and edit the album, we'll invest in promotion, a videoclip and participating in a live performance workshop to improve our shows.

Why this is important

We believe this should be important to everybody, so to you as well ! Our creation is dedicated to anyone interested in supporting new ways of cultural exchange, new ways of understanding music and interacting with the musicians, where profit and success are not the main targets.

We're making some videos of our rehearsals and the album recording process where you'll be the main character, going with us to the studio. That way you'll be able to listen and give your opinion about our work through Goteo and our social networks.

Here's a photovideo of our tour in Germany in June 2012:

Goals of the crowdfunding campaign

We want our third album to be published and prove that music and creativity are not in crisis. We're able to get by without music industry or intermediaries taking advantage of the artists to keep an unfair and more and more obsolete business.

Help us to change the musical prospect and prove that 'another way of creating is possible'!

Team and experience

Los Sundayers is a band of ten members. We've been hiting stages for seven years with our mix of reggae, funk, ska, swing, rock etc. He have a brass section, drums, percussion, bass, keys, guitar and two female singers.
