What's all the hubbub, Bub?

Here's the deal, Angel Adams needs to take her songs off of paper and to your ears. You may know her as the drummer from the now long gone indie pop rock band, Eric and the Adams OR you may just know her as the kid down the street...heck, you may not know her at all. What we want you to know for sure though, is that her songs are worth the time, effort and money to get them out to everyone who has ears to hear.

"I write for the kids who have nothing, for the underdogs, for the broken-hearted and for the champions. I don’t want to just write songs, I want to write songs that make people fall back in love with life again." - Angel

Here are the details: 10 song album, written, recorded, produced, mixed & mastered, and distributed...all for $6,800.00.  This is the amount that I need to raise in order to pay for the creation of the album, different fees that it will take to distribute the songs to Music Supervisors, A&R and get them into "catalogs" so that established artists have an opportunity to hear them and record them for the masses.  PS: I've already had a backer donate the entire cost for a studio...seriously...I'm speechless.

Now...for the "kicker"...I have to raise the ENTIRE amount in order to receive any of the dough, cash, monies, coinage...funds. 

No $$ is exchanged at all. This keeps us both safe in the event that we don't hit the goal...BUT if (when) we do hit the goal, I receive the funds (minus the kickstarter fee and the amazon charges) and we're well on our way to an album.  BONUS! IF more than $6,800.00 is raised then I get to keep that as well and put it to marketing, more songs or whatever else I might need to make this album the best possible...or some new sneakers to make me run faster (that last part is a joke).

How can you say no to these faces?

         That's me with the guitar and my sweet sister Jammie, circa 1977.

To my friends who have encouraged me, I am honored to have you in my life. Thank you for pushing me beyond my area of security.

To those of you who have NO idea who I am...wow. You amaze me with your heart by helping someone look past the "can nots" to the "always possible".  THANK YOU.

For a break down of the budget, please see FAQ or Update #2 under the update tab at the top of this page. THANKS!
