Ever since I released my album Heart of Me I have been promising y'all more new music. To that end I've spent the last couple years trying to find the right label who believes in my music as much as I do. I felt like that was the best way to go since that is what most people do. I've had people make offers and promises and they either didn't come through or they wanted me to change my music to fit what they had in mind. When I wrote my song Tears for Hallelujah I realized that I needed to get it recorded and released regardless of if I could find a label for it or not. That song has already touched peoples lives far more than I ever expected. And my song The Real You is probably the song I am most excited about recording after Tears for Hallelujah. So I've decided to just do this myself. I know exactly who I want to do the songs and now just need to pay the guys haha. I know this seems like a lot for two songs but to do them right AND get them released it will cost at least this much. Ideally I'd like to raise enough to record six new songs and release a second album but for now my goal is to get these first two songs out and go from there. Depending on how much I raise I will be recording additional songs as well. I can't tell you how much your support means to me! Thank you all so much!!

Risks and challenges

The challenge with this project from the start has been the financing. Once I have that in place it's just a matter of getting in the studio and recording the songs. So once the money is there the music will follow shortly there after.
