In order to release their first album, Stringus Khan, a fast-growing bluegrass project from Dayton, Ohio, is raising money on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. Titled Colorado Speedbump and set for release on March 13th, this project has until January 30th to reach its funding goal.
Founded by Ben Clonch and Max Nunery, Stringus Khan has been around since the summer of 2018. Since then the band has played shows at some of Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus Ohio's best venues for up-and-coming artists. Together with Ben Clonch (Guitar/Vocals), the band's current lineup includes Rob Spahr (Bass/Vocals), Jenny Walker (Vocals), Kevin Cretsos (Banjo), Evan Lane (Mandolin/ Dobro), and Robbie Marion (Fiddle). Although Max Nunery is no longer a member he still remains a close friend of the band.
While still a few months from release there are many reasons to be excited for Colorado Speedbump. In the first place, a band's first album is always something to be excited about. In addition, the band is also brought in two Grammy award winners to help record the album. The first of the two is Jeremy Garrett of Grammy award-winning The Infamous String Dusters who produced the album. Furthermore, the album was mastered by Grammy winner David Glaser. For those not familiar with David Glaser, he has mastered an impressive catalog of albums. Some of his notable credits include mastering albums from the Grateful Dead, Yonder Mountain String Band, and more.
The Kickstarter campaign for Colorado Speedbump has a goal of $3,000 and runs until January 30th, 2020. In order for the band to receive any funding from the campaign, the band must hit its goal. That being said the band is offering multiple levels of rewards for those who back the campaign. Depending on much you pledge you could even get Stringus Kahn to play a concert at your house. Even though we hope you pledge, regardless if you do or not be sure to follow the band on Facebook to stay up to date with all the great things this band does.
The Kickstarter campaign met its funding goal on January 29th.
