This EP will feature a handful of original songs I've written and performed over the last few years. Each song represents a moment in time and together, they tell a story.
Your donations will fund:
- The recording, mixing and mastering of my Debut EP album
- The recording studio time and space (Big Orange Sheep)
- Compensation of the featured musicians, album producer and studio engineers
- The use of a videographer to document the recording journey
- Marketing and distribution of the EP
- Kickstarter fees (what are these?)
What is an EP, you ask? EP stands for "Extended Player" and according to musicindustryhowto.com, "...it is a collection of songs by a musician, which is used to raise awareness of their talent. It's usually longer than a single (hence the word 'extended' in the EP definition of 'extended player'), but shorter than an album."
A few of the featured musicians you'll hear on this EP:
- Johnny Cuomo, guitarist
- Leah Rankin, cellist
- Mark Minoogian, bassist
Producer- Alex Gehring
Mix Engineer- Jacob Powell
I had the privilege of working with both Johnny Cuomo & Alex Gehring on my single released in 2016, Welcome Home.
I am thrilled to have this creative, talented team by my side!
A bit about me:
I grew up immersed in music -- surrounded by a nurturing, artistic community in my childhood home of Austin, Texas.
An inner voice of melodies has always narrated and brought color to my life, so when I began putting words and music together, I knew I had found my language. My musical style as a singer-songwriter is influenced by a variety of genres, but can best be described as indie-pop with a soundtrack-esque quality.
The moment I said "YES!" to New York City in 2014 was the moment the trajectory of my life took a radical shift along a path I could never have dreamed! To be creating and performing in a city so grand, so inspiring, and so challenging, well, it is both equally humbling and amazing.
And now, here we are, almost four years later! I am ready to bring together this collection of my original songs to be recorded and shared!
Thank you for taking the time to learn about this project and THANK YOU for your contributions! I cannot wait to share these songs with you!

Risks and challenges
The main risk and challenge in this endeavor will be not hitting my $12K Kickstarter goal. If the goal is not met, I do not receive any of the funds (your donations will not be kept). This will inhibit the making of this EP.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
