Cotton Candy ☆ Magical First Date!

コットンキャンディー☆魔法の初デート!

My first song is going to be released soon! I've been working with local artist Yuuya senpai to produce a J-pop inspired song! It's almost done, and we're going to call it, "Cotton Candy ☆ Magical First Date!" I helped write some of the cutest lyrics ever, and I can't wait to share it with all of you!
私のデビューソングがリリースされます!この曲は同じ地元デトロイトのアーティスト、ゆうやさんと一緒に制作中です。あと少しで完成します!タイトルは「コットンキャンディー☆魔法の初デート!」私も歌詞作りに参加して、とてもかわいい歌に仕上がってます!皆と一緒に歌うのが楽しみです☆

Here's a demo, I hope you like it so far!
デモを準備したので聴いてください!

But, that's not all!
でも、それだけではありません!

I'm excited to share with you that I'm in process to sign to an agency in Japan, and I'm currently getting ready to fulfill my childhood dream: to perform in Japan! I'll keep you updated as we learn more!
私の子供の頃からの夢は日本で活動することです!そして、その夢が叶いそうです!私は日本の事務所さんとお話中で、近々日本に行くことになりそうです!詳しい情報はまた教えるね!

And, guess what?
しかも、しかも!

We shared our demo with our agent and they loved it! And if we do a good production, our agents are willing to support the promotion and distribution of our project in Japan! This is very exciting! So we quickly put together a special "Team Cotton Candy" to turn this into my dream project!
事務所さんにデモを送ってみたよ!そしたら、とても反応がよかった!もし正式なリリースがあったらプロモーションの応援をしてくれるって!すごく嬉しいです。だから、夢のプロジェクトを達成するために「チーム・コットンキャンディー」を結成することにしました!

*・*:.。..。.:*The Dream Project*:.。. .。.:*・*

夢のプロジェクト☆

We came up with many ideas, and we decided that it will be best to send a cute promotional package to our agency in Japan.
たくさんのアイデアの考えたけど、日本の事務所さんにはかわいいPRパッケージを送ることにしたの。

But, instead of just sending a song and some photos, we think it's a great opportunity to involve more artists to make this a dream project. So for the promotional package we are going to produce a photobook CD to add more tracks and photos that people can keep as a fun souvenir.
でも、完成した曲や写真を送るだけではなく、仲間を集めて夢のプロジェクトにしたいって思ったの。だから、PRパッケージもちゃんとした写真集とCDを作ることにしたよ!きっとその方がみんなも喜ぶよね!

And with your help, we might be able to make it come true!
みんなの応援があればきっとできると思う!

*+。゚・Our Kickstarter Goal (●`・д・´●)・゚。+*

プロジェクトの目標☆

Our goal is to produce a package of 100 CDs and 25 photobooks to distribute to our related partners! We have budgeted for additional content and the cost to produce the minimum amount of sets we need.
私たちの目標は事務所や仲間に配るPRパッケージに必要なCD100セットと写真集25冊を出版することです!コンテンツを増やして、パッケージを制作するために最小限で必要な予算をを計算しました!

The more successful we are, the more we will do!
成功したらもっともtっと素敵なプロジェクトにするよ!

Risks and challenges

Since we will start the design and production of the packaging and prizes after we reach our goal, the availability of the song may be delayed depending on the timing of achievement. The project planning will also be live throughout the fundraising process and end results will most likely vary from any sample or demo file that will be shared during the period. Release party date is not confirmed yet, and will vary depending on the timing of our project fulfillment. We appreciate your understanding. Thank you very much for your support.
今回のプロジェクトのパッケージとプレゼントのデザインとプロダクションは目標を達成してからの開始となるため、最終的な楽曲のリリースとプレゼントの発送日程が遅れる場合がございます。また、プロジェクト計画も支援機関の間は常に調整されるため、完成品はコンセプトや試作品と異なる場合がございます。リリースパーティーは日程と場所が決定していません。プロジェクトの状況次第で変更する可能性があります。大勢の方に喜んで頂けるプロジェクトを完成するため、チームは最善を尽くしますので、ご了承の程よろしくお願い致します。皆様の応援とご支援に大変感謝しております。本当にありがとうございます。
