Hey ya'll! If you are here, then you may or may not know me. My name is Brandi Richardson and I am so excited to join the many beautiful artists of the Kickstarter family and to announce to you that I am going to be recording my very first full length album!  It has been a long road getting these songs ready for recording. Hours upon hours of writing, and thinking, and praying, and more writing. It truly has been an adventure. 

As you probably all know, recording an album is not something that one can usually do alone. So I will be working with a great producer here in Utah as well as other musicians who are willing to give of their talents for the cause. But not only do I need them, but I also need YOU! Having a sufficient amount of funds is essential when completing an album and putting it all together. 

So here I am, asking YOU to help me make it happen! I am needing to raise $5,000 to complete the album. This amount will cover studio time, production, musicians, and photography. If we go over that goal, then I will be extremely grateful and  it will be used for distribution, album art, and travel for shows once the album has been released. 

HOW IT WORKS    -----    

I have 30 days to raise the full $5,000 but if that goal is not reached within that amount of time, no one's card is charged and unfortunately the album cannot be recorded.......so that is why I really need your help!

A little about me...

I started writing music when I was very young, just trying to find as many cool sounds on the piano as I could. I was captivated by film scores and later began writing orchestral music using a piano and my home computer. I haven't received requests from any film industries quite yet, but you never know what can happen.              

Growing up in North Carolina I always loved the sound of country and folk music but it wasn't until I moved to Utah when I really started to appreciate it. It started to slowly change and influence my writing and it was then that the magic really started happening. Folk and country music to me, in it's purest and most raw form reveals so many truths about the human soul. It's a beautiful thing.

Songs are kind of like little children. They are born, they grow, they change, and eventually they are ready to go out and see the world. And for the world to see them! 

So here I stand. My songs are finally ready and I need you all now more than ever. They encompass so many different feelings and places from my life so sharing that tender part of me with the world is a big step. So thank you for wanting to be a part of the movement! 

I cannot express my love and gratitude enough for your love and support. It means the whole world to me and I could not do it without you. So please take a gander at the rewards to the right and choose the best option that works for you. I promise you that every single cent helps!

Obtaining the necessary funds is probably the hardest part, but thankfully Kickstarter has provided a way for us to share our stories with you and ask for your support. Thank you for helping me reach my dream!
