Alayna is making a new record! Pledge and get sweet stuff :)
Hi, Friends and Family!
After my first duo EP project "The Real Thing" recorded with my best friend Sara Zebley (aka "Zeb"), I am excited to announce that I'm making a new CD! This will be my DEBUT SOLO EP! It will have 6 tracks, and be recorded in Nashville and produced by Bill Warner of WarnerWorks. Oh, and in the video....Monkey Head is a prop in Bill's studio. He says it helps artists sing better :)
My journey in Nashville so far has been unforgettable, and I only have a positive outlook at the future. I've been working on many new things for this coming year and I cannot wait to share them with you all!
I've been thinking about a Kickstarter campaign for a little over a month now, trying to decide if I would humble myself to ask for help in creating the new CD or silently fumble around looking for funding. And I've chosen Kickstarter, because I have hope and a determination for a bright future as a full-time musician.
So friends and family, I would like to ask if you would consider contributing to my new EP. The estimated total cost for the new CD is likely to be between $7000-$8000. However, I'm only raising $3000 and will take responsibility for the other half.
Here are some of the expenses I will need to cover:
*Studio Time *Mixing/Mastering *Producer/Engineer *Session Musicians *Photography/Artwork *Duplication *Promotion
THANK YOU!! to everyone who has supported me over the past few years. Your kindness and encouraging words have truly made a difference in my life. I will do my best to be a good steward of your money, give an account of how I spent it, and in return provide excellent rewards (listed on the right side of the page) !!
I should also mention that if the full $3000 is not raised, I will not receive ANY of the pledged money. So if I've raised $2,999, it will not be received. If I meet and/or exceed $3000, I will be forever grateful and humbled, and the money will be put towards other things, such as a tour and/or a music video.
I believe that we can do this together! If you have any questions about the project at all, please do not hesitate to send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
