Help The Sations Record Their Debut Album
We’ve won first place in our category at the International Songwriting Competition! We need your help to make our debut album.Auckland
We’re excited to tell you that we’ve won first place in this year's International Songwriting Competition (ISC), the Christian category for our song ‘Floodgates’! ISC gets over 18,000 entries from all over the world. This year's judges included Coldplay Dua Lipa, and Kari Jobe. Previous winners of the competition include: Bastille, Kimbra, Passenger, Gin Wigmore, and For King & Country.
This is great, but there’s no prize money with it, so the challenge remains about how to fund our first album. We were counting on some other work to help fund it, but due to Covid 19, this evaporated. Maybe you could help us get the album to come to life? Every little contribution will help!
We are a family band, made up of husband and wife Dom and Laura, and our sister Rachel. We write from our hearts, not shying away from the sometimes-harsh realities of life, love and faith.
Since we started in 2018, we’ve released five singles. Listen here on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/0Z8pYQ1HmTLaPhrbIQ7EHa?si=M9exWhJ4RC-h71mqvBC0TA We’ve done as much as we can by pouring our own resources into these. Earlier this year at Festival One 2020 we opened for two time Grammy winner, Lauren Daigle, alongside Paper Cranes 折り鶴. Our single ‘Thank You’ debuted at #10 on the NZ Hot Music charts, and #1 on the LifeFm YouChart. ‘Floodgates’ made it to Spotify's "New Music Friday Christian" playlist in 2019. Our Christmas song ‘You Are Christmas’ was also a finalist in the Radio New Zealand song competition, last year, and premiered live at the Auckland Town Hall, with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra.
Making great music isn’t cheap, so we’re asking for your support!

WOW! We can't believe that we have met our fund-raising goal. It wouldn't have been possible without you all, and we are so touched by your generosity!!!
When we started this campaign, we always knew that it would be a tough year to try and fund-raise. Never the less, we felt a strong call to go ahead with it anyway. We fell so blessed by you all.
In terms of the progress of the album, the mix of the first three songs have come back, and we couldn't be happier with the way they have turned out. We are so excited to share them with you!
We will commence recording the remainder of the songs for the album at the start of next year. Please keep us in your prayers, and we will keep you in ours. xx
