I HAVE FINISHED RECORDING MY DEBUT EP! Your help is needed for mixing, mastering, replication & distribution so I can then share it with you! Thanks!!
"Ships are safe in the harbor, but that's not what ships were built for." -Anonymous.
One of my favorite quotes. I'm an artist trying to get my "ship out of the harbor", if you will. For many of you who don't know me, my name is Emily Simonian. I'm an Orange County based singer/songwriter.
I've been singing ever since I could breathe, writing ever since I learned how, and dreaming the entire way. In August 2009, I began my first professional solo recording project. I stumbled into a recording studio with 5 original songs that I still feel certain will gain attention and generate larger things for my music career. Cost of studio time, having to pay musicians, production and physical replication costs for creating a high caliber project like this is very pricey, so it should come as no surprise when I tell you that a year later, I'm still not finished with my 5 song EP ("extended play", meaning 5 songs or less).
Here's where you come in. Kick-Starter is a phenomenal company that is letting me accept donations toward the finishing of my EP, and there's something in it for you, too! Check out the rewards you'll receive for donating even $5!!! You're getting good karma and a lotta bang for your buck, as well as being part of a musical endeavor that could go down in history!
I'd like to thank you in advance for your generosity, love and support, and invite you to check out my website for more information on me as an artist.
Feel free to join my social networks to keep updated on my latest project developments.
