THE JOURNEY WILL CONTINUE...

ANNA & LEVI APPEARED ON GOOD MORNING TEXAS. WATCH IT HERE.

A Few Words From Anna

I've been working on a lot of new material over the past couple of years, drawing inspiration from a wide range of sources. Along the way, I've rediscovered my love for the piano, resulting in many hours spent composing and translating the sounds in my head into music. I've always loved telling stories in my songs, and I'm really looking forward to bringing these new stories to life!

Propelled by bouts of insomnia, many of my new songs are about personal experiences, including phobias, friendships, childhood memories, personal struggles, and even dreams. I've shared a lot of these new originals in venues around Dallas, as solo gigs with my keyboard. I cannot wait to begin recording them to include the instrumental and vocal layers that I hear in my head.

I will be working with Levi Bradford – a wonderfully talented producer – on this project, and with your support we are ready to make my first full length record! I'm pleased to announce it will be released on Levi's new record label, Noise Umbrella. I'm so excited to work with Levi, as he is very down to earth, amazingly talented, and we have really connected on the vision for this record.

With your support, you will help launch the new Noise Umbrella label as well as my CD!

A Few Words From Levi:

I’m excited to be producing the new Anna Thomas record and I’m thrilled to have her as the first release for Noise Umbrella records. She has a lot of diverse material and we are really going to be pushing the creative envelope – which excites me! 

I love that she is open to exploring a variety of different sounds. This record is going to take a little time as it will have so many unique styles and we will be exploring each track to create something you will be proud to be a part of. 

With your help, we can make a great record and get the new Noise Umbrella label up and running. I can’t wait for you to hear her songs – the way I hear them in my head. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Risks and challenges

What are the Risks?
Without your help, we won't be able to record the new record or launch the Noise Umbrella label. Kickstarter is a all or nothing system.

As Levi said in our video, making a 14 song record is expensive.
Some of our expenses include:
Drum room plus engineer - $500
Artwork, photo shoot and cd design $1000.00
Mastering - $1500
Mixing -$1500
CD duplication - $1500
Specialty Musicians - $1,000
Promotion for both the CD and the new Noise Umbrella Label - $500.00
Gear and producing costs - $2000

AS SOON AS YOU SUPPORT THIS KICKSTARTER PROJECT, PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU'VE DONE IT, AND SPREAD THE LINK FAR AND WIDE.

Thank you!

Respectfully,
Anna & Levi
