In January, Matt Butler started work on the first Everyone Orchestra studio album in Brooklyn, NY. Butler recruited some of EO’s most famous alumni for the session, including Jon Fishman (Phish), Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band), Al Schnier (moe.), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) Steve Kimock, Marco Benevento, Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), Jamie Masefield (Jazz Mandolin Project) and Jans Ingber (The Motet).

The Brooklyn Sessions album is almost ready for release but Butler looking for some additional help via Kickstarter. As he explains, “To date, this project has been self-produced and self-funded and I am almost ready to release the music. But, I need your help to raise funds for final stages of finishing the album and to get this EO Studio Series off the ground. With your support this will be the first of many incredible EO studio collaborations to come.” Fans who donate money will receive everything from an advance download to autographed photos and a special thanks in the album’s liner notes.
