"As a San Francisco native, I've been lucky to have grown up in a wealth of different musical communities. From Korean to Irish, Old Time/Bluegrass to Jazz, Balkan to Shape Notes, and more, these communities have become family. Some of my favorite memories include falling asleep by the fire as fiddles saw through the night, or singing harmonies with folks I'll know for many many years to come. Music has become the glue that holds my life together.

Not only do the music communities give me joy, but songwriting has become my most treasured form of self-expression. When I bring elements of the different musical communities into my own music, I create something that I can find comfort in wherever I go. I strive to weave threads of music traditions into the more current aspects of my songs.

As my twentieth birthday approaches, I notice how quickly my life and the world are changing. While the influences of my upbringing are still as fresh as possible, I'd like to take a snapshot of my current musical self, in the form of a CD. This Kickstarter project would allow me to create my first solo album, as well as pay homage to those who've helped me along the way.

Pledge money goes toward:

~ Studio sessions

~ Sound engineer

~ Feeding & compensating featured musical guests

~ Mixing, Mastering, Printing, & Distribution (I want to use the 'zero-carbon' digipak cd case!)

Every penny counts ~ Really, your kind help is much appreciated. I can't wait to make the über-special gifts for you all!

Thank you for stopping by.

All my best,
Zoë Yungmi Blank
