WOW- Thank you so much for the unbelievable outpouring of support!! Even though we have met our goal, any contributions you continue to make will be put to good use! Your continued support in the project will be used for guest musicians,travel expenses and promotion- CD release parties and concerts and such. This is going to be awesome!!
My name is Bella Betts. I am 11 years old, a Colorado native, I have 4 hens, and I am making my first album! I love to play music- I play the mandolin, the fiddle, the guitar and I sing. Music is very special to me and brings me great joy- I have loved it for as long as I can remember. For me, it is an ongoing journey, an adventure and there is always something new to learn.
I’m super excited about what I’m going to learn in this stage of my musical journey. The process of making a CD, collaborating with other musicians, working on musical arrangements, and growing as a musician is going to be wonderful!
The music on my album will be a mix of many styles. What I like to do is take music from all styles and use my ear, and “tools” from my musical toolbox to create something that is true to the song but unique at the same time. My tools are: my ear, music theory, and my imagination. There will be lots of great tunes on the album- some originals – some covers of songs that are old-time, bluegrass, and contemporary.
So here’s where you come in- as I am learning, making an album is really expensive! And I can’t do it without you- since I’m just 11!! You have to pay for all kinds of things when you make a record- a producer, musicians, recording time, mixing, mastering, cool art, environmentally friendly packaging- it’s so much math!!
Oh and did I mention the guest musicians?? I have asked some of my friends who are awesome musicians to be on the album. Oh I hope they say yes!
And if you say YES! You get all kinds of fun rewards- and you get to be a part of my musical adventure!
Thank you so very much for your support!
‘Tis the season to spread joy and merriment- why not give the gift of supporting a young musician…
