A harpist fuses her songwriting with a modern, indie rock production sound. Pre-order her music to fund the CD!
I am a singer/songwriter and harpist living in the Seattle area. Right now I’m in the middle of recording my first EP (a six-track album). Making this CD has been a goal of mine for a few years. Now that crowdfunding help is available, I think it's time to make this dream a reality!
I’ve selected a talented producer, picked my best songs, began the recording process, and set my sails for an early Summer release date. What I need help with now is the funding! Here’s a snapshot of the current budget:
- RATE: $1000 production fee per song (paid to the producer/sound engineer; includes mastering). REMAINING: three songs.
- RATE: $300 per day at the studio. REMAINING: seven days (includes recording instruments and vocals, and mixing).
- RATE: Approx. $200 per song for string instrumentation. REMAINING: four songs.
The project has brought some amazing highs...such as hearing my songs transform in the hands of the producer and spending all-day sessions at a remarkable studio. I hope that you will want to be a “mini-producer” by contributing to the financial target. I would be incredibly grateful for your support, and in return you will receive updates on the project, creative thank-you gifts, and my harp-based pop CD before the official release.
UPDATE: The target has been met, so anything extra will go towards promoting the new music.
