A girl and a piano get together to create a sonic revolution with a cast of Orcas Island musicians and a place to record it all.
I am ecstatic to announce the launch my third solo album. The title of my upcoming album “From the Direct Box of the Soul” is a representation of how deeply personal the journey of being a songwriter is to me and where I tap into for the inspiration of my songs. I was lucky enough to discover early in my life that through music I have a way of expressing the inner tapestry of life’s journey with all its big questions as well as celebrating the humor of being human mixed with finding the divinity of love and the truth of how to let it all go into sonic form.
Reaching the Goal
I am taking a leap with this kickstarter event as an unsigned artist in the hopes of by reaching out to my friends and family, audience members as well as the community in which I live to come together and play a part in making this album happen. One thing with Kickstarter is that we can raise more than the goal amount but if we don’t reach our goal we get nothing for the album and you have no obligation to your pledge amount.
There are many stages of creation in a project such as this to pull together. First you have the writing of the songs and crafting them into solid form. Then there is lining up all the artists that will be contributing to the overall production- the web designer, the photographer, the artwork designer, the musicians and the engineer and studio itself. After that is supreme bliss of recording. Then it is followed by hours of mixing and mastering in the studio to create the final sonic product. After that you have the post-production of putting together the CD artwork and sending it off to press. With your contribution on this project you will be helping me hire some of Orcas Island’s most talented musicians- Martin Lund, Carolyn Cruso, Bruce Harvie, Andrew Moore, Armando Nunes and Anita Orne as well as violinist Joel Gamble from Seattle and my friend Jake Perrine as co-producer and sound engineer for the album. The funds will also go to the making of the CD, the artwork and duplication, not to mention helping bring this incredible music into to the world!
