Jan 7, 2017 - Brighter In The Dark 2017 CD RELEASE TOUR! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS! 

We hope you this finds you snuggled in somewhere today drinking a hot frothy beverage and enjoying MAXIMUM COZE. 

Personally, we have no intention of getting out of our pajamas today, as the snow continues to fall here in South Philly. We're currently at Ty's mom's house, enjoying her soulful Jewish cooking, packing on the pounds (totally worth it), and readying ourselves for a very busy 2017. 

Next up: The 2017 CD RELEASE TOUR

Later this month, we'll be kicking off our CD release tours for Brighter In The Dark in the NORTHWEST, with many dates all across the U.S. (and hopefully beyond!) to follow. We're excited to have special guest musicians, including a full band (for the first time ever) on select shows, and all shows will feature lots of tunes from the new album. 

Please come out and help us celebrate! We can toast to a new year, new music, and a new chance to make the world a better place. 

The shows listed below are just the beginning, so be sure to check back for more dates. If your town is not listed, write to us with your suggestions. Better yet, host a house concert or private party

And once again, thanks for being the absolute best part of our 2016. Because of you, we got to unleash our creative beasts, collaborate with some of our favorite musicians, and go make the best album either of us has ever made. Over the past couple weeks, we've mailed out nearly a thousand packages* to those of you who Kickstarted and pre-ordered last year. We hope you are enjoying the new music as your COZE STATUS reaches peak levels! 

All the love, all the time, 

Ty & Ingrid

10/27/16 Behind the scenes video, pre-order the CD! 

We are holding in our hands the finished master of Mouths of Babes' first full-length album, "Brighter In The Dark." Yes, it's finally DONE! We couldn't be prouder of how it turned out or more grateful that we got to make it. And we can't WAIT for you to hear it. In the next few weeks, we'll be finishing up the album artwork and mailing out Kickstarter rewards and pre-orders.

Which reminds us...

YOU CAN NOW PRE-ORDER THE NEW CD!

We've just made "Brighter in the Dark" available for pre-order for a limited time right here. Holiday season is almost here, so even if you're already a Kickstarter backer, you can add additional copies of the CD to your rewards package. We'll get everything to you in time for the holidays. 

And now, as a little treat, we've put together this behind-the-scenes video to give you a little glimpse of what it was like making the album:



Oh, and if you're in the NORTHEAST in NOVEMBER, we're playing a few shows. Hope to see you!

2016 WEST COAST TOUR! 

Our 2016 WEST COAST TOUR is almost here! We'll only be out west once this year, and it's now. So check out the full list of shows and get your tickets over at our show page.

Can't wait to see you, California and northwest peeps!

WE DID IT! This calls for a montage. 

Woo hoo! WE DID IT! 

796 backers...$56,110...goal surpassed...THREE stretch goals nailed. Incredible! Thank you to each of our backers for your amazing, epic support! Y'all knocked it out of the park. 

It's difficult to express how much this means to us. Perhaps it's best said with a montage.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We love you and we can't wait for you to hear what we're cooking up! 

Love, 
Ty & Ingrid

Stretch Goal #2 IN THE BAG. 24 hours left! 

WOW! We just reached our SECOND STRETCH GOAL! We are really feeling the love, y'all. We're thrilled to have a budget for tour support, and we're excited to send our $25 & up backers your GREATEST HITS albums. 

AND we still have 24 hours to reach for Stretch Goal #3: Music Videos - $55,000! If you've been enjoying our ridiculous little videos during this campaign, imagine what we could do with a little professional help (flash mob, anyone?). 

Because we love you, if we reach this goal, all backers at the $40 level and up will get a hanky that says, "All the feelings, all the time." Because you need it. For your feelings.

Only 24 hours left to become a backer!

On the road again... 

You guys, we have 3 DAYS LEFT to reach Stretch Goal #2 - $50,000 - Tour Support

We have a special treat for you if we get there: All backers at the $25 level and up will get an exclusive digital GREATEST HITS album of our favorite songs that we've ever recorded! The album will include songs from ALL our previous projects (Girlyman, Coyote Grace, Captain Gravel, The Garden Verge, Ty's solo album, and MoB's EP) as well as personal notes about each song.

Let's get this show on the road! kck.st/mouthsofbabes 

Mouths of Babes featured in The Huffington Post! 

Big thanks to the Huffington Post for an excellent live show review and interview!

"Tylan Greenstein (formerly of Girlyman) and Ingrid Elizabeth (formerly of Coyote Grace) are that charming musical couple that everyone wants to sit next to at the dinner party. Before I even heard them perform, I got the chance to be their dining companion when I met them on an Olivia Cruise. 

Once the two, who call themselves Mouths of Babes, did take the stage the next night, I was hooked. And I certainly wasn't alone. The pair was so popular onboard that they had to book a larger venue for their second show. 

No wonder. They are an accomplished match. Between the pair, they have created more than a dozen albums and performed in -- literally -- thousands of shows. Their genre? If I was forced to categorize it, I'd call it modern folk. It's powerful. It's romantic. It's giddy. And the two are insanely infectious together onstage, like a musical and a personal love fest all at once."

First stretch goal NAILED! And 5 days left. 

UH-mazing! Last night, we watched as you all helped us nail our FIRST STRETCH GOAL

Thank you to everyone who has jumped on this folky bandwagon of feelings thus far...we are amazed, inspired, and energized by your belief in us. It is difficult to describe how incredible it feels to have this community as our backup band - a virtual sea of kindred spirits offering support and love. Wow, y'all. 

We still have FIVE DAYS left to do as much as we can do with this momentum, so let's keep it going! Next up: 

STRETCH GOAL #2 - $50,000 - TOUR SUPPORT & MUSICIANS 
A huge part of releasing an album is taking it out on the road, but it's also one of the most expensive, and we can't always travel and far and wide as we'd like. Hitting this stretch goal would give us the leeway to travel to more cities for our CD release tours (possibly even internationally) and to bring along a musician or two when it makes sense to help fill out the sound. 

As a reward, we have a special treat for you: 

If we hit this stretch goal, ALL BACKERS at the $25 level and above will get an exclusive, digital SPECIALLY CURATED GREATEST HITS ALBUM of Ty & Ingrid's favorite songs they've ever recorded! The album will include songs from ALL our previous projects (Girlyman, Coyote Grace, Captain Gravel, The Garden Verge, Ty's solo album, and MoB's EP) as well as personal notes about each song. 

Five days...a lot can happen. So please keep sharing and let's make this Kickstarter one for the record books. ;)

Thank you again for your love and support! 

Love, Ty & Ingrid

Last chance to DOUBLE your impact!  

This is it, friends - the home stretch! We have less than a week left to take the Kickstarter for the first Mouths of Babes full-length album as far as it can go. Earlier in the campaign, Ty's dad Ron generously helped us meet our minimum goal by matching your pledges. 

Now, as we reach for our FIRST STRETCH GOAL, Ingrid's dad Steve has made his own offer: 

*TODAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2016* 
ALL PLEDGES WILL BE MATCHED UP TO $2,500!

 

"Like my uncle, Tom Eyen, who was about their age when he wrote the Broadway musical 'Dreamgirls,' Mouths of Babes is on the brink of reaching a new level. Let's help them cross the finish line with everything they need to get there." 

*Take Steve up on his offer and double your impact!* 

(Already a backer? All pledge increases will also be doubled today.) 

If we reach our FIRST STRETCH GOAL of $45,000 by next Thursday, February 25, we can put PUBLICITY & RADIO behind this album - a total game changer for an independent band like us. 

And as a "thank you," every backer will get an exclusive download of a song that WON'T be on the album! 

We know you've probably heard about this campaign a lot, so thanks for sticking with us. In less than one week, we'll go back to doing what we do best - making music. Until then, thank you for helping this project be all it can be! 

Much love, 
Ingrid & Ty
