Hello, Music Nerds!
Thank you for showing an interest in The Deltahorse's fundraising campaign and for considering to pledge towards our upcoming new album. We truly appreciate your support.
For what it's worth this journey should be a rewarding one for all of us.
Straight From The Horse's Mouth
We are three musicians from different origins and alternate influences who have never been in the same place at the same time. We are scattered all over the globe but we connect online to create our music. The chances are good that you won't be able to tell just by listening to our songs - that what you are hearing does not sound like we all just connect through the virtual whiteboard of file swapping. Our music sounds more like three friends who meet up over some good wine and have fun playing whilst creating a signature sound. The three of us are, Berlin based Sash, Vadim Zeberg from Belfast and Dana Colley from Boston. Call us the Triple B-Brothers if you like, or simply The Deltahorse.
"Mammoth slabs of thunderous bass and sax riffs..." Joshua Pickard | BEATS PER MINUTE, USA
"Zeberg swings a slinky falsetto; it's an appealing contrast to Colley's swaggering bari sax..." Jim Santo | BIG TAKEOVER, USA
"Unlike anything else you're bound to come across this year..." Chris Kubak | STRIKER BILL, USA
Fundraising Mission And Purpose
Everyone's got a mission in life and our's is to create the grooviest, grittiest, shmexiest music we hear in our heads and feel in our warm hearts whilst exploring that twisted field called songwriting. We pour our blood sweat and tears into the process, it takes a lot of time and even more energy doing what we do. Forming all those weird riffs, sound bits and lyrics into songs is what makes us feel alive.
People keep telling us we are creating some good stuff and we feel that the time has come for us to finally release our full album. As far as our songwriting goes... we have written about half of the songs needed for the album and we plan on finishing up on it and releasing it by autumn 2015 (touch wood).
We need your support to make it happen.
Please take a look at how much budget is needed and what it's for.
Funding The Bill
Minimum Project Budget: $4.500 | The minimum funding goal for this campaign was set to as low as $4.500. By reaching the minimum goal we would be able to cover costs for the manufacturing of at least 300 CD's at Disc Makers (4-panel-Digipack), album mastering, ISRC codes needed for album, artwork and graphic design, 15% campaign fee, costs for materials and rewards.
Flex Goal no.1: $7.000 | At this point we would be able to start promotion of our album and secure some brief online distribution deal and promo.
Flex Goal no.2: more than $7.000 | At this point we would be able to come up with a low budget video on top. Being able to promote our album in a manner that will do the crazy amount of work invested justice is what we are aiming for.
The full amount received at the end of our fundraising will be used in its entirety to cover just the mechanical costs for producing, releasing or promoting of our album and the manufacturing of rewards.
We are thankful for your support and we want this fundraising to be an exciting and rewarding experience for all of us. We are pleased to announce some really great and personal rewards like Dana's woodblock printing, mixtapes or some beautiful stencil art.

The Story So Far
Dana and I released The Deltahorse's debut EP in 2013 on Bandcamp, together with the great help of Australian musician TJ Eckleberg who collaborated as singer-songwriter and injected some great lyrical storytelling. After lots of hard work, some dead ends we managed to get our EP out into the music blogosphere, it's been doing the rounds for a while now - there are some nice interviews, responses and reviews out there.
2014 sees Vadim sitting in the saddle, taking over the vocal duties and pulling at the listeners heart strings. The Deltahorse is still a running horse, kicking off its signature sounds and working towards the release of a full album. We couldn't be more excited about it and judging from the response we've been receiving on our latest single "Easy Life" a lot of you, our dear friends and supporters, are too!
Thanks for bearing with us.
Sash | The Deltahorse
