The Blackbird Sessions

Recorded at the Historic Blackbird Studio in Nashville,TN, The Blackbird Sessions is a crossroads album in many ways for Sugar Lime Blue.  Signaling the end of an era while simultaneously ushering in a new one.   Started prior to the CoVid pandemic with basic tracking completed shortly after the release of their 3rd album, Narcoluptuous(added on 120 FM Stations), production came to a stand still at the loss of founding member and bassist Russ Dean.  

Ashley and Dave Beth remained committed to seeing the album to completion and enlisted the help of Bassist, Joe Bass(Brian Howe),  and Keyboardist, Scott Guberman(Phil Lesh).  The album itself touches on several genres and Sugar Lime Blue firmly cements itself as an eclectic tour de force with fare sampling Modern Blues Rock, Reggae, Vocal Jazz and Country.  Sugar Lime Blue remains a strong presence in the Americana/Jam Band scene having played national festivals alongside mainstays Umphreys McGee, Moe, Ween, The Wood Brothers, and Buddy Guy among others.  

Fundraising Goal: Offset production and promotion costs for The Blackbird Sessions

Target: $7,500

Great Press for the Lead Single Burn It!! 

This reviewer captures what the SLB sound is all about!! 

"On the surface, it might all sound pretty familiar, but when you listen, when you properly get your ear in, it isn’t the simplicity of blues-rock that you hear, but a more profound richness garnered from genres near and far." Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture 2022

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions.

When Will the Album be completed?  The Blackbird Sessions is scheduled for release to radio on September 1st 2022 and for physical retail distribution on October 1st. 

Is there a minimum I can contribute?  Good news, there is no minimum!  Using the donation button you can set how ever much you would like to contribute, large or small.  

I would like to pay more for an item to help support your endeavors, is that possible?  Yes.  The easiest way to add more money to your purchase is to select the items you want to purchase and then, add the "Donation" item to your cart.  This will allow you to select an additional amount to add to your purchase!

What is the crowdfunding money used for?  We are glad you asked!  Being an indie band we incur so many costs that some bands may have covered by labels and other backers.  Beyond the cost of manufacturing products, we have expenditures going out to back up musicians, studio costs, mastering, production, design, and that's just the first part!  If we want our album to be heard, all money contributed, past the creation costs will be used in promotion.  From radio, to press, and social media we will use every market to get the word out!  Think of yourself, as the record label and promoters of Sugar Lime Blue rolled into one! 

How will I know if you reach your Goal?  Make sure to sign up for our email list at the top of this page.  We will be giving regular updates here as well as messaging our list throughout the campaign!

How long do I have to donate?  The campaign officially will run for 3 weeks but beyond that all purchases still help out as we tour the album, march sales are critical to our effort to make this business of making music make sense! 

Can I share this with my friends who love music? Please share as much and as often as you can!  You can post the link www.sugarlimeblue.com/crowdfunding on your facebook, twitter, blog or other favorite places. Thanks so much for helping!
