Hey! I'm Anne-Claire and I'm a singer-songwriter out of Durham, NC. This November, I invite you to help me complete my second full length album!

An interview with Anne-Claire:

I've been writing and collaborating with a fabulous band and in March 2017 I released the single from this record, 'Second Time'

I have 9 new songs that I'm ready to record at the Fidelitorium in Kernersville, NC. 

The funds raised via Kickstarter will go to:

- Paying my band and other musicians 

- Paying for studio time + my sound engineer

- Mixing/Mastering the record 

- CD manufacturing and design

Last time we raised around $7,000 out of a $5,000 goal! This time around I'm renting out a professional studio for a full week, paying my band a daily stipend, plus working with strings and horns. I'm going all-in for this recording!

If you're unable to donate, please PLEASE share the project - - exposure is what makes crowdsourcing work.

Rewards

Rewards include t-shirts, enamel pins, and prints designed for this project by North Carolina artists, in addition to special music events for donors at higher price points.

Risks and challenges
