We are Gavin and Jess, aka The Kondoors. We have been a couple for 15 years and have somehow managed to sing, write and perform together, without killing each other!

We knew when we first sang together we had something special. People couldn’t tell who was singing what and amazingly, we found that people wanted to come to our gigs.

The most important thing for us musically is to be real. All our songs have ended up reflecting our relationship and everything that has gone on over that time. It has been a hard and emotional journey at times, to the point of giving up, but what we have created we are really proud of. Our passion and love of what we do and sharing this with you is what has kept us determined to keep going, despite it being such a hard industry to break through in.

Realness is so important to us, not only with our approach to songwriting, but also with our recording methods. We do everything in a raw way to give a real sound which is the heart of our music. We want to honour the old and heartfelt sounds of those great records from back in the day and also have elements of today in the sound too. This can be pretty costly, once we’ve paid for all the musicians, studio, producer, mixing, mastering, PR, Promo etc, as an unsigned act without funding, we simply can’t afford to do much more. We made our first album this year at Monnow Valley Studio in Wales. It was recorded live, 11 songs in 3 days. It probably cost us about £10k to do and would have been impossible if it wasn’t for deciding to spend money from family and friends, given as a wedding present (we already had an oven and fridge) and most of our savings. We can’t wait to release it, but before we do we want to do one more thing.

A huge dream of ours has always been to go to Nashville and make an EP, but we have never had the time or money to do it.

SO amazing people……

We really need your help!

We have just booked a return flight to Nashville.

8th-25th Jan.

We have been given the opportunity to work with the legendary Producer Ray Kennedy (Willie Nelson,Solomon Burke, Taylor Swift/ Joan Osbourne).

BUT here’s the thing… we don’t have the money to pay for him, the studio or any musicians yet.

On top of that, we also have the opportunity to work with songwriters who have worked with Aretha in the Muscle Shoals/Memphis scene.

If we could raise £5,000 we could make all this happen and it would be a dream come true. It would also mean we can share this dream with you, the people who are so supportive of us and what we do.

In return for your help and support, we have some fun rewards for you (if you are kind enough to pledge) and if we go over budget (which would be unreal) then we can make vinyls of our album, pay for marketing, PR and maybe even another EP. Every little bit helps!

Your support so far has been amazing and we are so grateful. We have so much more we’d like to do and share with you and we’d love it if you would come on this adventure with us.

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Thank you in advance

Gavin and Jess xx
