With this project, "Live, Love, Dream," I plan to finally share with the world some fresh songs that I've been writing from a new season of life. I hope this music will inspire honesty and commitment in relationships & marriages, innocence and purity when falling in love, and perseverance in the times of testing and waiting for the right one. Some of these songs came out of my own journey with being real and honest with my heart and some came out of just simply dreaming of love while in the waiting myself.
Today we live in a world where the divorce percentage is so high and standard for purity is so low. And we hear such a negative and selfish voice singing to the world what love looks like. I want another voice to be heard, music cherishing the gift of love. I believe in what Blaise Pascal said, “It’s not those who write the laws that have the greatest impact on society. It’s those who write the songs.”
I have 8-10 songs I'd like to record here in Norway. In order to record, produce, mix, master, pay musicians, etc to make this happen, the cost is going to be a lot more than my minimal goal of 40.000NOK/$5,000USD. This minimal goal will allow me to receive the money raised here and record at least an EP. Yet I really believe in these songs and it would be really hard to only record a few. So any money over this goal will go to my main goal which is to record a full album. I plan to release singles out first as they are completed and work in the studio throughout this winter and spring of 2016. I hope to be finished & ready to release the final work by summer 2016. If I receive over triple my minimum set goal, I may even be able to record a music video if you want to be so generous!
As I turn 30 years old this October, I want to celebrate in a way of giving something authentic and different of myself to share with the world. This is also a fun opportunity to collaborate together with friends around the globe to make this happen!
Risks and challenges
My greatest challenge after raising the minimal goal is really to decide which songs to record first. Because I believe in all of them and the different messages they each carry needs to be heard. It will be hard if I don't get enough money to record all of them. Also I have a great network of musicians and artists that are friends of mine but one challenge I will face is deciding which musicians to specifically work with to get the sound I am wanting to create with my music. I don't want to compromise on this record and I believe the right producer will help bring this out.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
