Who are you? 

Hi! I'm Priska, many of you know me as Priscilla Liang. I'm a singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, CA. Growing up I was bullied for a number of years and music really saved me. I used to feel like nothing I had to say was valid and I had difficulty connecting with my peers. It wasn't until I performed my first song live that this completely changed; once I was on stage baring my soul, all my fears melted away and I learned so much about myself and the people who were kind enough to listen. Since penning my first song at 16, I've continued to write songs about heartache, loss, and finding your own voice. 

In the 10 years I've been a singer/songwriter, I've had the chance to work and collaborate with some incredible musicians and play on stages around the world–in Boston, Singapore, Beijing, Mexico City, and even Los Angeles. I've been working towards completing a solo project for years now, but in each past attempt, I wasn't completely ready... until now. 

I'm running this Kickstarter to help fund a five song EP that will be produced by the incredible drummer and producer, Abraham Kim.

I finally have a set of songs that really showcase who I am as a musician and a storyteller, and I absolutely can't wait to share them with you. Some of the songs on the album have been with me for years and some are brand new–the old songs have matured along with me and the new songs display who I am today. I have a group of talented musicians and good friends that I know will bring their skills, technique, and heart to set a tremendous vibe for the album. The album will blend together acoustic sounds with soaring melodies, all set to soulful vocals.

I can't do this without you–I need your help to fund my very first EP. Will you go on this journey with me?

How can I help?

I wouldn't be where I am without this beautiful, supportive community; I'm so thankful for you! Here's how you can pitch in so we can make this EP happen together!

1) Support - Take a look at some of the rewards on the right-hand-side and choose to back the ones you're diggin'. (Have I mentioned homemade Priska Jam?)

2) Share - Re-post this Kickstarter page on FB, TW, IG & beyond to share it with your friends and family. It's honestly a huge help!

What is all my money going towards? 

I promise to stretch every single dollar that you contribute because 1) I want all of us to get our money's worth and 2) because my tiger mom would kill me if I didn't. 

The bulk of the budget is going to go towards the following:

  • Music Production 20%
  • Mixing/Engineering 20%
  • Mastering 10%
  • Musicians 20%
  • Physical Copies of the CD 14%
  • Merchandise 10%
  • Kickstarter fee 6%

What will I get out of it? 

I'll jump through hoops for you <3

Risks and challenges

My biggest challenge is not getting the project funded. We've got the songs, musicians, engineer, and producer all ready. We just need your help to get funded so we can hit "Go".
