After playing solo for three years, the avant garde songwriting project from Vancouver's Robyn Jacob has been joined by a cast of local all star musicians. Together they are a powerful group of formidable talent, and they flesh out the beautiful and mind twisting songs Robyn has composed, creating a unique sound you won't hear anywhere else in Vancouver.
This spring, they are excited to be working with engineer Corwin Fox on an EP showcasing their sound in the studio. This campaign helps support them in creating this record, where the funding would otherwise be coming out of their own pockets. By donating to this campaign, you are enabling Fist Full o' Snacks to grow and share their music with you. You are letting them spend less time worrying about the extra musical aspects of running a six piece band, and more time actually making music.
Fist Full o' Snacks has been joined by Kevin Romain on drums, Jeff Gammon on upright bass, and Lindy Grey, Celina Kurz, and Emma Postl on vocals. We are excited to bring you five new songs, that have been previously unrecorded, and showcase the incredible power that the full band has given Robyn Jacob's (keys and vocals) songwriting.
We are following our passion for the music, and playing music together, and have been playing in the local music scene for years. We know what it's like to play a great show, pay out the sound guy and the venue, split the remaining door money between the bands, and then have enough to go for pizza together - and that's all. Though it's not always like that, and each venue and show is different, we are not drawn to this profession for the money.
With this recording project set to get underway, we are asking you if you can donate a few dollars to our campaign, so that we can more easily share what we are excited about with you and the public. Every dollar makes it a little bit easier for us to do what we do best - play music! With only a limited amount of resources and infrastructure for arts funding in the country right now, it is up to musicians to find their own way to get a project off the ground.
We believe in the music we are putting on this record, and can't wait to share it with all of you. Everyone has worked really hard to get the challenging tunes together, and are excited to show off all the hard work!
Thanks for considering donating to our campaign, it is very very much appreciated.
Robyn and Fist Full o' Snacks
