Everything has led to now....

If you know me, you know that what I love to do more than anything is sing. I have been lucky enough to have spent years singing music I love and creating shows from other people's music. Then 4 years ago I reached out and asked for your help and support to create my first EP, What's Mine. It was a huge success and I am so grateful for that experience and all of the love you showed me through the entire process. It taught me so much about what kind of artist I am and how lucky I am to have the support of so many incredible people.  We got some incredible press on that EP.  take a look....

Since the last EP I have been touring all over the country.  There is nothing better than meeting new friends and fans in different cities across the US.  Here are a few clips from live shows....

During those years I started spending a lot of time in Nashville, a town that has long held a special place in my heart because I lived there for 2 years after college before moving to New York. I started writing new music.  I have been lucky enough to collaborate with some incredible songwriters.  After The Pulse Nightclub shooting I went straight back to Nashville and sat down with Shane Stevens and Stephony Smith and we wrote a single that I then recorded and released called Love Can Take Us There.

Now that I have started co-writing so much more, I am addicted to it! For me it has always been hard to put my thoughts to paper but I have felt so inspired by my fellow co-writers and I cant wait to write more. Shane Stevens, an incredible songwriter/ producer, came to NY to do our podcast.  (www.ilovemywifepodcast.com) After we recorded the show we went to dinner and he started asking me what I really want to do. After several hours, and glasses of wine, we came up with a plan. Its time for me to get back in the studio and record a new EP. He got me so excited, especially because he is going to co-produce and co-write the EP with me! We will spend 1 week in the studio in LA and will knock it out of the park! He has so many incredible connections in LA and knows we can take this EP to the next level. We plan to have MAJOR collaborations and exciting things to announce along the way....so let's get this thing going!

The budget....

We have put together a budget for this EP and it is $30,000 (minimum). That will cover the very best musicians, studios, producers, mixing, mastering, printing, distribution, photos, art design and everything else that goes into making a killer product. I know you will be proud of what we create and by supporting from the beginning you are enabling us to truly make the best kind of music we can make.

THIS is where YOU come in. It takes a lot of money to make an album, especially the kind that I want to make. Its truly time to level up and I can't think of a more exciting way to do it than with a 30 day kickstarter campaign! So I am asking YOU, my friends, family and fans to help me make this dream come true. I have developed a whole bunch of really cool rewards that you will receive (along with really good karma :) if you help support this project. There are lots of different levels depending on what you want to do. EVERY dollar counts and I am so grateful for the support and love that I feel from you all. Feel free to share this with anyone and everyone you know that loves good music. Its going to be a lot of fun and we can all experience this TOGETHER!

How Kickstarter works....

My team and I have set our fundraising goal of $30,000 (minimum) and it would be fantastic if we exceed that! If you like the idea of me making this new Studio EP, you can pledge money to make it happen. Every donation is backed by a reward that you can check out on the side of the page! We have 30 days to reach our goal, so the sooner the better! If we do then your card will be charged when time expires. If we don't achieve our goal, then no one will be charged and we will have to find a different way to fund the album. Funding on Kickstarter is ALL or NOTHING!

We don’t know where we will end up, but we are starting here, with you. This is the new music business, just you and us. We hope you join our team and spread the link to all your friends on all things social media, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. And don't forget to follow me on twitter https://twitter.com/theannesteele and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/therealAnneSteele  and Instagram www.instagram.com/theannesteele for updates on everything that is happening. I will also update on Kickstarter all the time!

Please take this journey with me and help these dreams become a reality!

Thank you in advance and I promise that I will take what you give and make something beautiful with it!

xoxo

Risks and challenges

We all know that set backs can happen at any time. Hopefully there will be none with this project. My plan for after this fundraising period is to schedule the studio, musicians, etc for as soon as possible and get the project under way. I will definitely keep all of you updated with specific dates that are scheduled for recording, photos of what I'm doing on my social media sites, and any other info that I can let you all know. I'm sure with the people I will be working with that everything will go smoothly and we will get this EP done in a timely and professional manner! And yes, it will kick-ass!
