A classical crossover album, blending contemporary favourites with traditional Korean instruments!
Hey everyone! Thank you for looking at my project!
I have a dream...
My dream is to share my music with you...
As a performer, I have been lucky enough to travel the world, doing something that I love for a living. This is something I am eternally grateful for; a blessing which I remember and cherish every time I set foot on stage.
As a recording artist, I haven’t been as fortunate, finding a reputable label willing to offer a contract worth signing is almost impossible, and It is for this reason that I have made the decision to record my latest album independently, releasing the finished product at a price we all can afford through Kickstarter making sure to stay true to its originality.
With this album, I will incorporate elements of classical music with that of my home country, South Korea.
I aim to marry traditional Asian music with the talents of colleagues I have been fortunate enough to meet along the path of my musical journey, and build upon the classical crossover success of artists like Myleene Klass, Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban - releasing material that is as accessible as it will be well recorded!
Please have a listen to a track I worked on for this album.It is with a Korean Traditional Flute, Daegeum and the full orchestra.
The £50,000 target for this Kickstarter will cover all aspects of the album’s recording process, as well as the packaging and promotion of the product. Whilst available as a digital download for only £1, I want to make the physical copies of this as beautiful as the music itself, so the packaging will only be of the highest quality.
A full itinerary of aspects of the recording process covered can be found here:
Hiring Recording studio.
Orchestra (Chamber Orchestra Size: Approximately 30 people)
I truly believe that we live in an era where, for the first time, artists can begin to produce commercially successful music without the interference of record labels. By starting this Kickstarter project, I hope to involve each and every one of you in the recording process, creating an album that is truly collaborative - made with equal amounts of love, care and attention.
So, thank you for taking the time to look at this project - your support means the world to me. And, even if you can’t pledge, please spread the word.... Sharing is caring after all!
Thanking you all in advance,

My creative team and I will work as hard as we can to meet all the needs, and challenges of completing and delivering the album on time. Unexpected production delays and surprises can sometimes occur - in such an event we will do whatever we can to resolve all issues and ensure that Kickstarter backers are kept fully informed and up to date. Also, email address of my personal manager will be provided for Kickstarter Backers who can assist you for any questions you may have.
