"Eliza and the Organix" will be an eclectic album that draws from jazz, blues, folk, and cabaret. Help me make it happen!
Hi everyone! This CD is the fruition of years of songwriting and a great deal of collaboration with awesome musicians, and I am very excited to finally put something concrete together out of all that.
The goal of this Kickstarter project is to fund the mixing, mastering, and distribution of a CD of modest length which will be available in the form of hard copies and digital download.
I am a college student, a guitarist, and a songwriter. Some of you may have seen me play before, but I know a lot of you haven't as well, so I'll try to tell you a little bit about my music. At its core, it's just me and my guitar, but it's a lot more than that. Some of it is acoustic and some of it is electric, some of it involves a lot of people other than myself, and some of it is pretty stripped down. I always have trouble succinctly explaining my music in a few words, but I think of it mostly as an eclectic blend of blues-jazz with folk and cabaret.
Irony. Humor. Wit. Poetry. Intensity. Energy. Melodrama. These are the words that I would use to describe my music. My strongest influences include Beck, Cake, Morphine, Manu Chao, and Puerto Muerto.
I am really excited about making something this personal, and-- I think-- really great, and I am really grateful to everyone who is helping to make this possible! So thank you-- yes, you-- personally for your support! Every little bit that you donate is getting this CD a little bit closer to becoming a reality!
