Hi everybody! My name is Molly Brown. Welcome to the KickStarter Campaign that will hopefully fund my very first, long awaited EP.
Before I break down the final goal of this project for you, let me tell you a little about my music and myself. I’m a 23 year old singer, songwriter and musician. I was born in beautiful Toronto, Canada and had a very musical upbringing. My parents strategically placed guitars all over the house in hopes that I would pick one up and start my musical education early. Well, their scheme worked. I’ve been playing guitar since the age of 8 and writing songs since then, too.
In 2009, I got accepted into Berklee College of Music in Boston, a school that I’d been dreaming about since I was young… and it truly changed me. I had to work harder than I’ve ever worked in my entire life… and thankfully, I was able to come out the other side knowing that I had become the best possible version of myself, a highly-educated musician, and an artist who was truly serious about performing and writing.
Which is why I moved to Nashville, Tennessee in February of 2014. Music City, USA is a haven for a singer/songwriter like myself. I’ve truly come into my own since I’ve been here. I’m performing every week, writing as much as I can, working as a session musician, pitching songs to publishers... and I even just released my very first Music Video for a song that’s going to be on the EP. I’m incredibly proud of this song. It’s called “Travel in Twos”. You can find a link to the music video HERE -->
But there’s something that I’ve been missing … and this is where you come in. It’s time for me to finally put the rest of these songs, these parts of me that I’ve been performing for years, but haven’t yet distributed to you out into the world. And I need your help.
So, this is how it works. If you become a ‘Backer’ of this project, you can choose to contribute any amount of money that you want. I, in return, will send you a pledge package or reward depending on how much you donate, including a copy of the EP once it’s finished. My campaign will be online and running for 30 DAYS ONLY. If I don’t reach the goal before then… your credit card won’t be charged and all of that money disappears. It’s all or nothing.
This is what your donation is going to go toward:
- Recording the material
- Paying the musicians who will play with me
- Producing the material
- Mixing the material
- Mastering the material
- Making physical copies (CD’s) of the material
- Digital Release of the material (Amazon, Spotify, iTunes)
- Marketing & Promotion
So, that’s about it. I truly hope that you decide to become a part of my project. It may seem crazy to bet on someone like this… but I’ve never been more sure of something in my entire life. This EP is going to make a lot of noise. You’re going to love it.
Thank you for watching and helping to make my dream come true.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge that I'm going to face while completing this project is the fact that I'm doing everything by myself. Like most musicians on Kickstarter, I'm unsigned and have no management team to work with. Being my own manager/booking agent/web designer/publicist is a lot of work... but luckily, I already have 10 years worth of experience! I have always been in control of my own music career. While attending Berklee, I educated myself in many areas of Music Business that would help me further my success. So... yes, it's going to take time. It's going to be a challenge... but I'm prepared and EXCITED to finally get to work on my dream!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
