About

HI FRIENDS! 

I'm Suzi Shelton and I'm working on a NEW MUSICAL PROJECT FOR FAMILIES with co-producers Greg Mayo (Jon Bon Jovi, America's Got Talent Band) and Dan Weiner (STOMP, America's Got Talent Band). You can be a part of it too! Yay! 

WHAT IS IT? A NEW ALBUM FOR FAMILIES that shares A POSITIVE MESSAGE! 

 This album is filled with songs about having fun like dancing in the sunshine and swimming in the water, as well as more serious topics like helping others and being true to yourself...doing what you feel in your heart, and doing what you think is right.  I think that these are important messages to send to kids today. 

WHAT'S THE INSPIRATION? 

I love making music for kids - seeing them laugh and smile. I also love playing music with amazing musicians, and lately I've been inspired by those around me.  I wrote a bunch of new songs last year and felt it was time to turn them into something special AND to showcase my talented band and musical friends! 

WHO WILL BE FEATURED ON THE ALBUM? 

In addition to Greg and Dan, who are integral pieces of this record, I'll be featuring many special guests including bass player Geoff Kraly (Paris Monster), Grammy Award Winner Tim Kubart (The Sunny Side Up Show, Tim Kubart and the Space Cadets), multi-instrumentalist Jeff Kerestes (Hamilton, Tim Kubart and the Space Cadets), singer/songwriters Amelia Robinson (Mil's Trills), Vered Ronen (Vered and the Babes, Baby In Tune), Katie Mullins (Katie Ha Ha Ha), and even my 13 year old daughter Emma! 

WHY KICKSTARTER? WE LOVE KICKSTARTER! 

The money that we earn from Kickstarter will help pay for the production of the album (recording, engineering, mixing and mastering), the artwork, the promotion, and hopefully a few music videos!

The EXCITING thing about Kickstarter is that it INVITES A WHOLE COMMUNITY of friends and family to BE A PART OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS!  We're just in the beginning stages, so there is room for kids to SING ON THE RECORD, DANCE IN THE MUSIC VIDEOS and even to COLLABORATE ON AN ORIGINAL SONG! 

Kickstarter is grassroots movement that seems appropriate for the indie music industry these days - a lot of it is done by word of mouth and social media, and it really takes a village! 

HOW WILL THE PROJECT BENEFIT OTHERS? 

Project supporters will have the opportunity to have MUSICAL PLAYDATES at their home, participate in SING WITH SUZI VIDEOSPERSONAL MUSICAL SKYPE sessions, own their own BLUE FIN FELT HAT, color in an original Sing A Long Coloring Book and MORE! 

This project also features a PAY IT FORWARD option where supporters can PAY FOR A CONCERT IN A SCHOOL THAT CAN’T AFFORD A MUSICAL PERFORMANCE! 

THE WARM FUZZIES of the album will hopefully be THE SONGS! THEY ARE FUN. THEY HAVE POSITIVE MESSAGES. THEY ARE FULL OF LOVE. AND YOU CAN HELP BRING THESE SONGS TO LIFE! 

A BIG THANK YOU to YOU!!! Thank you for your interest in backing this project!

I'm GRATEFUL for this opportunity to share my joy + work with wonderful people. I'm GRATEFUL to all of my friends and family members who continue to support what I do and believe in me.  I TRULY love what I do. Thank you for helping me to keep moving forward. 

All the best,

Suzi xoxoxo

Risks and challenges

There are always risks when making an album. Unexpected things can happen, but I have never felt more confident about my team! Both Greg and Dan are top notch musicians and professional producers who can overcome any technical challenges that may occur. Right now, our biggest challenge is funding the project. With your help, we anticipate our album to be released soon into the new year!
