After writing Black Marks on White Paper, LOVE the poet is back with a cinematic musical experience YOU can help bring to life!
Hi wonderful people!!! Thank you so much for checking out my Kickstarter page. I am beyond amped to share my work with you. I am a full time artist on a full time mission to create everything I can until my physical form shuts down. So, the purpose and drive behind my kickstarter project is to complete the production of my fourth major album entitled Gemini Moon. Gemini Moon (currently in production) is a very personal project, an extremely honest and candid look inside the mind of a conflicted poet; and a cinematic musical experience that highlights the dysfunctional nature of relationships, namely the one we have with ourselves (laced with kick ass music & lyrics!).
In order to secure the funds needed to make this project a reality I need your help! The goal is to raise at least $3,000 in 45 days! As a full time artist I believe that anything is possible because I live the impossibilities, so I know without a doubt that together WE can make this happen. I have created outrageously awesome incentives to go along with your pledges so create with me, connect with me, enjoy the works I have created over the last 10 years. Welcome to LOVE's Journey... I am pleased to have your company... let's make art, because art is everything and everything is art!
The money being raised here will go toward the production costs of the CD itself which covers studio time, producer, mixes, marketing, promotion etc. All extra money donated will go toward making this project even greater, getting it into more hands world wide, and whatever else artistic I can get into!
Check out all the options, and thank you so much in advance for your generous contribution to my life and music whether financial or simply in taking the time to forward this to your friends and family. See you at the release of our project 'Gemini Moon'. LET'S ROCK!
Please note: If the target amount is not pledged by the deadline that is posted, the project will not be funded, and the money that has been pledged will be returned to the donors. So, please help me SPREAD THE WORD!
Glance over to the right of your screen and check out the goodies you will get for your contributions ===============================================>
I have been writing for 20 years and I have delivered many projects into this world. My art is my legacy and I have given birth to just about every medium our wonderful creator as deemed me fit to create. This particular video is the precursor to the 'Gemini Moon' CD project. It was the trailer for my book 'Black Marks on White Paper' and the prototype for the tone of this upcoming album. The visual of 'Faithfulness' is profound. The audio will be just as riveting.
Much love to you and yours,
Michelle "LOVE the poet" Nelson
