This is me, Aimee Bobruk. I live and write in the room you saw in this video.
And I have a dream of finishing the recording of my second album.
Last year I wrote over 30 songs in my little room. I recently put these self-made demos on a CD and shared them with one of my musical heroes, producer and engineer, Brian Beattie.He has recorded musicians like: Daniel Johnston, Bill Callahan, Roky Erickson, Okkervil River, and Shearwater.
Brian listened to my new songs and smiled really big, "Let's make a record!"
So far, we've recorded 3 songs for my new full length album.
Listen to a sample of what we've done so far! http://wp.me/pFkAY-2d
I have 10 more songs to track.
But right now I don't have enough money to finish the recording process.
It takes about $1,000 to record one song in a professional studio.
I am an independent musician, which means I pay for everything "out of pocket" (i.e. my personal credit card--ouch). I pay for the recording, mixing, mastering and packaging of my own music.
You Can Help: Pledge Goal $10,000 in Six WeeksI have set a goal to raise $10,000 from Oct 3-Nov 13. $10,000 would fund the studio costs (paying the producer/engineer and studio time) for exactly 10 more songs. I actually need more than $10,000. Paying for the musicians, printing the CD, and then finally marketing it through publicity and radio campaigns costs around an additional $8,000. But I want to set a reasonable goal, and $10,000 would make a tremendous difference by providing me with the means to simply record my songs, as envisioned in Brian's studio.
All or Nothing
If the $10,000 pledge goal is reached in 6 weeks, then I will be awarded the money, and be able to finish the recording of my new album. But if the pledge money is not reached, then I receive nothing at all, and the record will remain unfinished.
