Singer-songwriter Sarah Tollerson heads into the studio in Nashville to record her first Music City release.
Be sure to check out the project video above to see my sweet dance moves!!
**To keep things exciting, here's the new goal for the final stretch: If we make it to $5500, I will reenact the Hound Dog video exclusively for backers. That's right, backers will pay for my embarrassment! ;-) In addition to that, there are many expenses beyond the original goal that your pledges will help cover: remaining recording costs, printing, marketing, distribution fees, etc.**
Hello friends! It's been 5 long years since I've shared a new collection of songs with you, and I'm so excited to finally be able to do just that!
We're taking my best tunes and turning them into sonic treats that will make your toes tap, eyes tear up, and your ears smile. The magic will happen in the musical hotspot of East Nashville, Tennessee, at Mr. Lemons, the studio of producer Neilson Hubbard. We start tracking on August 6th, and will have an album in your hands (or your hard drive) by November at the latest.
Your contributions will go directly to:
- Happy and inspired studio time
- Incredible professional musicians
- The man turning the knobs (engineer)
- Making the songs sparkle (production)
- The final snazzy touches (mixing & mastering)
I'll be covering the physical CDs, digital distribution, photo shoot, marketing, and all the the other fun things that go along with releasing an exciting record. If we happen to raise more than the goal, you can rest assured that your generous dollars will be used to make the album even better.
Any amount helps, and you don't have to pledge at the intervals listed. If there's a different reward package you'd like, let me know and we'll see if we can create it. Let's do this together!
I am endlessly grateful for your support, and can't wait to share this new music with you.
More fun facts:
- Two songs on the upcoming album were written with my friend and talented duet partner, Joseph Patton.
- Neilson is a bit of a rockstar himself. Listen for his songs and productions in Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Bones, and the major motion picture, Something Borrowed.
- "The Big Fantastic" is Sarah's beloved first band from Georgia. "Fallen Back In" features the outstanding musicianship of Patrick Rives, Alec Wooden, and Trevor Wooden.
- Mr. Lemons is named after a cat.
