Recording my best songwriting to date: 5-6 originals and re-imagined Russian folk tunes, shooting 2 music videos, hiring a press agent!
3. Hire Talented Russian-American Press Agent to Spread the Word to Major Cultural Institutions, Educational Programs, Songwriting Houses, and Fans!!
This past year I've had tremendous success with my newest songs and the re-arranged Russian folk tunes that I've been playing in my live performances. I finally feel like I've hit on the style that I've been working toward all along and know exactly what my sound is. I love incorporating the Russsian folk songs into my set because they are special to me and reflect who I am both musically and personally.
I toured this program to New York City Public Schools this year and I wish you could have seen how these ESL kids reacted to the bilingual tunes. I found that they identified with my Russian-American journey because they were also straddling the differences between two cultures. This music is meaningful not just to me, but to a larger bicultural American audience.
I am setting out to record an EP (5-6 perfect songs) to shop around as a demo to films, songwriting and licensing houses, and important cultural institutions. On the EP will be: Kiss Me Fast, Twenty-Five, Cape Cod, Oy Moroz Moroz, and one more Russian tune.
I've already sent off Kiss Me Fast and Twenty-Five for mixing and mastering to a stellar engineer named Damon Whittemore who works with artists like Paul McCartney and the Berlin Philharmonic. He told me he loves these songs - something engineers NEVER do :) I take that as a great sign.
I plan to spend a tight $2000 on the recordings and two promotional music videos. The other $3000 is going to be used to hire an exceptional Russian-American press agent to do the important work of spreading the word about my new, exciting release and getting this music in front of the right people.
I hope that you will be able to help me to accomplish this next step. I believe in this music and I think this is the key to reaching the next level I seek.
Thank you and much love,
