My 1st album, "Song For You", will host variety songs & styles. It's dedicated to those who may have lost their path in life.
Jidam Kang is an award winning composer, singer-songwriter and worship leader who is looking to complete and release her first full length album with talented young musicians from Berklee College of Music.
About the ARTIST: I have a bachelor's degree in Film Scoring (with Voice principle) and Drum Performance. I have appeared in various forms of performances from worship concerts, contemporary / classical concerts, and written music for musical theater. Most recently, I had the great privilege to compose, orchestrate and conduct for the silent film, “Sunrise: A Song of Humans,” which premiered at Coolidge Corner Theatre in Boston. An article was written about this performance in the Boston Globe newspaper.
About the ALBUM: This project started over ten years ago when I initially had an overwhelming dream filled with light of hope and love. Since then, my life goal has never changed. That very goal was the belief that everyone has his or her own special gifts and talents to contribute to mankind. For me, without hesitation is in music. So, I would love to share my musical talents with those in need of comfort and love. This unwavering life goal has led me to produce this album, and it is stirring in my heart for many years now.
My first album will be a mixed compilation. "Song for You", the title song, is very special to me as it is going to be dedicated to people who may have lost their path in life. Along with this song, the album will host a variety of songs and styles. For example, bossanova, samba, jazz, soft rock, and classical: all are composed and arranged by myself, and lyrics in both Korean and English. I have been working with Boston based musicians over the past year in which they contributed to make my demos. They are talented, and educated from world renowned music schools such as Berklee College of Music. I could never have kept this project without their support and help. We all are very excited to finally release the album and share this music with you!
About your HELP: A total budget of this album is around $10,000, and this Kickstarter campaign will help cover some parts of the overall costs. Original compositions, orchestrations, musicians, engineer, and studio are all ready to go, but here is where I need your support: to finalize the process and head to studio. My fundraising goal here is to reach $3,000, only for recording and mixing. But If I exceed above this goal, the remaining dollar amounts will be contributed to producing the physical album (Mastering, album design, printing, pressing, and producing). So, FEEL FREE TO HELP EXCEED MY GOAL on Kickstarter!
