Hello Everyone! It's time to get real here. I usually don't talk about the struggles with you. Most of the time all you see is the fun and exciting pictures on my social media sites, but these past few years have been really hard. I always preach the power of vulnerability to all of you. Now it's time that I share mine with you. 

A few years ago I found myself in a place that many artists find themselves in at one point or another in their careers. I had completely lost myself. I had a lot of amazing things going on around me in my career, but I knew that in reality things were unraveling. I realized that I had trusted the wrong people with many things in my career and life. I knew I had to get myself out of the situation no matter what the consequences. So, I made the choice to leave the situation. This was, of course, easier said than done and left me broken emotionally and financially. It also left me doing a lot of damage control to make sure that I could even keep going with my career. In a lot of ways I was back at square one and was honestly completely defeated.  I had help from my family and some of the best friends a girl could ask for. They helped me be able to stay in Nashville and hold on by the skin of my teeth.  I managed to maintain momentum, but in reality and behind the scenes I thought that I was going to have to throw in the towel and go back to teaching full time. 

In the middle of this rebuilding, I also lost someone extremely dear to me to suicide. This was a person that I thought was going to be in my life for the long haul and someone that was there for me many times during all this craziness. There are never any answers to why these things happen. As hard as it was and still is to move forward after a tragedy like this, I know that I want to use any voice that I have to help raise awareness for suicide prevention. So, I will be donating 5% of my total project donations to this cause. Throughout my kickstarter campaign, I will also be releasing projects and original songs that will help in supporting suicide prevention. 

The reason that I say all this is because I have honestly come to a realistic point in my career where I need to make some changes. Changes with my music, my team and my strategy. I have spent these past few years holding on to this dream and now it is time to dig in deep and come out on the other side. Here's the truth... I need your help. You all have always pulled through for me and I wouldn't be here and I definitely wouldn't of made it through these past few years without your support along the way. I know many of you didn't realize the impact you've had on me, but because of you all following my career, buying my music, coming to my shows, singing along and dancing to my originals, sending me comments and messages of encouragement and overall just being awesome FRANS (friends+fans=FRANS), I'm STILL HERE.  I'm meant to do this with my life. That is the one thing that I know. If I reach this goal, then I will be able to confidently create an amazing new project. This will propel me forward on a new path, one that I want you all to join me on.  I have so many great songs and amazing projects I want to share with you! Let's reach this goal and make it happen!

Here are some of the costs that you will be contributing to:

- Recording/Mixing/Mastering

- Digital and Physical Uploading/Duplication

- Project Promotion

When you become a backer, you will receive rewards. The rewards will vary depending on the amount you give. These rewards will be things like free digital download, signed physical copy of the album, signed/personalized 8x10, custom Camille Rae merchandise, Camille Rae virtual and live concerts, a personalized original song written by me, a shout out on the album thank you's, and even a day in the studio with me! 

So, how does all this sound to you? Are you in? Anything that you can contribute to this project is beyond appreciated and cherished. I promise to work through the many obstacles to make this project the best one yet in my career. As an independent artist, I depend on my FRANS to be able to do what I was put on this earth to do. That is to bring you quality and meaningful music and help as many people as I can along the way. I know we can do this and I'm so excited to take this journey with all of you! 

Love, 

Camille Rae

Risks and challenges

Every project has risks. My biggest risk is recording the project before the kickstarted ends. It will be challenging to be creative and consistent with the posts and marketing to keep fans interested in donating and it is always a challenge to crowd fund or raise money in general. To overcome this, I plan on consistently posting and advertising as well as engaging with my FRANS. I will be descriptive and informative about prizes and will most importantly create an amazing project!
