Rachael Claire is an inspirational singer songwriter with a down to earth sound and she wants to create her first full length album!
I've been writing songs for over four years on the mandolin and piano and I want to be able to share them with you all. Last April, I put together a swift demo album of 5 songs and it has been a huge hit! Now I want to professionally record at least 12 of my songs to release on my first full length album of original music.
The following local/national musicians will be helping me with this project:
Deborah Joy- vocals
Ariele Macadangdang- violin
Willis Koa- cello
Brad Hatfield- guitar
Josh Eid-Ries- guitar
Evan Hyde- percussion
Brian Drews- piano
Benje Daneman- flugelhorn
I am planning on recording at Western Sound Studios in Kalamazoo, MI. They will do a fantastic job of recording and mixing and I'm super pumped to start this process! The funds raised from this project will go towards the recording and mixing fees. The monies will also go towards the mastering and production of the first batch of my cds.
The only thing is, with kickstarter, I have to raise my goal amount by the date that I set or else I don't get anything (and you don't get charged). Help me share my passion for music with the world by spreading the word and signing up to win some awesome prizes!
Thank you so much for your support!
Peace and Love,
The money that I receive after the goal amount will go towards the mastering and production costs, photography, website design and hopefully to pay the musicians!
