Wise Innocence: A New Album by Alicia Mathewson

$12,846

159

My new album, Wise Innocence, marks the next phase in a personal and creative journey started many years ago, when I was called to make music in service of others. 

After 12 years in NYC and writing/producing my original musical Love According to Luc, I took a short detour through the Middle East and landed back home on Cape Cod. During that time I released Winds of Sinai in 2009 and Isn't It Amazing in 2012. 

These songs have been heard live by thousands of people in settings from solo shows to yoga studios to festivals - and by many more through the recordings. One of my most rewarding experiences is hearing from those who have been touched in some way by my music. Listeners have shared stories of how a particular track or album has catalyzed transformation and empowerment for them. Along the way, people have asked for more recordings and over the past year I have felt excited and inspired to write. 

Wise Innocence came to me in the process of writing and I knew right away that it was to be the album's title. I wanted to honor the truth of the challenges, struggles, and changes we all experience, while still finding a way to go forward with joy. 

Once we accept our inevitable loss of innocence and choose to continue to open our hearts, we enter a place of wisdom. We experience all the intuition and knowledge that has brought us to our present moment -- truly the best way to live.

Through a blend of my songs and sacred chants, Wise Innocence will be an album that reflects the love, abundance, and compassion that I feel today and that I want to share with the world – for we need much more of it.

The songs are written, special guests are lined up (including outstanding musicians such as Fugan Dineen and Catie Flynn) and time is in the books with the awesome Jon Evans of Brick Hill Studios (you may know Jon from his bass work on tour with Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos and others!).

Now is the time for Wise Innocence. Thank you for being a part of my journey; I hope that my music inspires you to walk your journey. 

Risks and challenges

These days, undertaking any music project is an inherently risky and challenging effort. As an independent singer/songwriter, producing an album is a true labor of love. While technology has certainly lowered the cost of some aspects of the recording and distribution process, there are still real costs associated with putting out an album and that is a risk.

I have set a realistic budget to cover producer fees, studio time, recording/mixing/mastering, session musicians, and CD pressing/promotion. In addition to some seed money of my own, your contributions to this campaign will help to cover those costs and bring Wise Innocence to the world!
