I've spent the last year working on music that I'm really proud of. SO...it's finally time...LETS MAKE AN ALBUM!!!
Everyone has a dream. Everyone has a passion. Everyone has a purpose....well this is mine.
This is me...
Living My Dreams!
I've been involved in the performing arts for as long as I can remember...theatre companies, dance companies, choirs, background dancer, background singer, tv host, commercials, modeling...you name it, but very few people know that all I've ever really wanted to do is sing, to perform as a solo artist. WELL...what better way to let people know than to show them...you!
Even with all of my involvement in the arts, I've never fully dedicated myself to one specific craft, until now. I finally decided to dedicate all of my time to the thing that I love the most...music! I've spent the last year working on music and music alone. I've been focusing my time on writing new material, which I'm happy to say, I'm really proud of. I've had to put so much of myself into my music that I've been able to learn and grow, both as an artist and as a person, and I'm so anxious to share it with all of you. I'm working with new musicians and producers, who are AMAZING, and NOW......its finally time to take my music to the next level. Im ready to record my very first album! YAAAAAAAAAY!!
This is NOT an R&B album!!!
I'm proud to announce that this is NOT an R&B album. Well, primarily because I'm not an R&B singer. But also because my music can't be qualified as one specific genre. I absolutely looooooove R&B, but it seems that young females are expected to sing R&B or "radio" music these days. As much as I'm anticipating hearing my music on the radio, the music I make reflects the person I am, which encompasses way too much to fit into one genre of music. So expect to hear a variety of sounds. Yes, I am different. I work really hard to stay true to myself, but it's tough in a society where people are influenced by boundaries, restrictions, stereotypes, and other societal norms. But, I think my own way and I express myself...which is where my music comes in...GET IT?!!!
REAL MUSIC + GOOD MUSIC = MY MUSIC!!!
I'm making real, good music...let me explain. I believe that whenever you create something from an honest place...it is great! It is true, it is real and it will be felt, because it reflects true emotion. (Jay-z taught me that) This means that not every song will make the radio, but every song will be from a real place and therefore be able to touch and connect with real people. This does not at all exclude fun! Fun is just as necessary as any other part of life. I am TRULY silly, and I LOOOOOOOOOOVE TO DANCE so expect fun/dance music, but it will all be done in my own special way. You'll hear pop music, rock music, soul music, funk, and of course, some R&B. You will experience a little bit of everything, just as we do in life...cause that's just the way it is.
I NEED YOU!!!
I want you to come with me on a journey. We can learn to be ourselves and not be afraid of what the outcome may be or what others may think. I need to know your stories of triumph, failure, and indifference...this will help inspire me along the way. THIS IS GONNA BE AWSOME!!!!!
As you can see, I'm super excited about this whole project. I'm going keep you updated throughout the entire process. I'm also going need your input for ideas along the way like: what my album cover should be and the name of the album. It's going to be super duper fun!!!
Everything else is in place and ready to go, all I need is your support. The goal is $20,000. All the money will go toward the album: paying the musicians, producers, engineers, for studio time, equipment, mixing and mastering the cd, people who will be filming the process etc., so EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS! If we raise more than our goal we will use the rest of the money to make...MY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO!!!! WOOHOO!!! Extra funds will also go toward promoting the album, so become a backer and let's make this dream a reality.
OH...ONE minor/MAJOR DETAIL...the only way I can go forward with the project is if I get FULLY funded, otherwise nobody pays a cent and the campaign is over...and there's no album. :(
SO HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT. I THINK WE'RE GONNA DO SOMETHING GREAT!!!!
***ALL PRIZES THAT DO NOT REQUIRE THE ALBUM TO BE COMPLETE MAY BE SENT EARLIER THAN THE LISTED DELIVERY DATE***
