Below the Surface, a Debut Album by Joy Weiser

$15,257

79

I hope to record an album, singing classical songs and music from theater, television and film. It will represent the music that inspires me to sing and touches my heart. The album will be produced in a professional studio with live musicians and personalized orchestrations, making each song unique.  I plan to include 10-15 tracks on this CD.

I have been singing my entire life, and in 2013, I was selected as a finalist out of 75,000 acts to sing on stage in Las Vegas for America's Got Talent. This album represents the next step in my journey as a performer.

In addition to producing  and distributing the CD, I will be marketing my songs on my website (www.joyweiser.com) as well as on iTunes.

This album will help me share my music and voice with a broader audience.  

Thank you for your support of my dream.

Risks and challenges

After a lifetime of singing, and for many of those years professionally, this is my first attempt recording a complete and comprehensive musical body of work. So often I am asked for a CD of my singing, and I am left with an answer that has left me embarrassed. With this album, I will now be able to share some of my favorite songs and arrangements.

I am very excited to get into the process of producing my first complete album and learn copyright laws and licensing, recording studio practices, and working with a producer and arranger. In addition, I am up to the challenge and am prepared for managing studio costs, musician costs, costs of producing (duplicating, graphic design, mixing and mastering, and photography), as well as post-production marketing.

The largest challenge for me has been to select the best songs and arrangements for the album. My goal is to appeal to the broadest audience, while still being true to the message I want to share. I have enjoyed the process over the last year of searching through over a thousand songs to select the right ones for my debut album.

I hope with my broad range, after all I am an Alto who loves to sing High C, I can offer songs you will enjoy and with original arrangements.

My dream is to give the listener a piece of my heart in every song.
