10-track album by NY singer-songwriter Leila.
To all of my lovely friends and supporters,
For many months now I have been recording my first full-length album with the help of talented producer/engineer/guitarist, Dan Berry. All of the songs on this album are original (written by moi) and dying to be released.
This is where you come in! As easy and cheap as it may be to download music nowadays, making it is a whole different story. It's EXPENSIVE.
The combined costs of mixing/mastering (i.e. all the technical stuff needed to make this album sound professional), CD replication, and album photography/design are going to cost me $2,800 (yes, sounds like a random number - but I really did my homework!) As I'm sure most of you know, most 21-year olds fresh out of college don't typically have this much money.
By making a pledge on my Kickstarter, you are becoming a part of my first full-length album. I have spent the past few years of my life writing and nurturing these songs and I would love nothing more than to share them with all of you. Unfortunately I can't do that without your help!
One thing you all must know about Kickstarter: IF I DO NOT REACH THE GOAL AMOUNT, I WILL NOT GET ANY OF THE MONEY!!!! So while I'm shaking in my boots, I hope that provides you more incentive to HELP A GIRL OUT! I have come up with numerous rewards that I will be delighted to give you as gratitude for your contribution(s), and a little good karma never hurt anybody ;)
Let's make some music!
With a whole lot of love and optimism,
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
