About this project

JADE ALSTON
JADE ALSTON

My name is Jade Alston and I am ready to record my first album, We Will Live!

I was recently diagnosed with a potentially fatal heart condition called Myocarditis, which is the cause of 20% of sudden deaths in young adults. Through this experience I have gained a new found appreciation and understanding of time, life and my dreams. 

That is exactly why I am here today asking you to help support me and my dream of creating my first studio album, We Will Live! The funds raised will be used for studio time, cd production, packaging, mix and mastering and marketing/promotions. 

The album will be a full length and will mostly include live instrumentation. My goal is to create a timeless, organic sound that will resonate with audiences around the world.

I want to thank Brandon Davis of American Dreaming magazine who will help with project management.

Risks and challenges

One of the challenges will be finding the right music (beats) that aligns with my vision for the album.

Another challenge will be coordinating schedules between studios, producers and musicians to meet my November release.

The biggest challenge will be coordinating the entire project and making sure it meets the highest quality standard. This will be especially challenging because I'll be working with limited budget.
