About this project
**Note about the private burlesque shows! I've gotten a lot of requests to offer them outside of LA - so I've just added a few new packages for outside of LA shows. However you have to pay my travel costs - so keep that in mind!
We've reached the $5k goal! Thank you SO much to everyone who contributed! HOWEVER, IF WE RAISE MORE MONEY WE CAN TURN THIS EP INTO A FULL-LENGTH RECORD! THE NEW CHALLENGE IS $10,000! IF WE CAN RAISE $10K I CAN BRING YOU 10 NEW SONGS INSTEAD OF JUST 5! YOU ARE THE ONES WHO CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN!
To help achieve this goal, I've created a cool new Nikki Lynn Katt iPhone speaker that you can ADD-ON to your pledge for only $10!
I'm now also offering single items from different reward tiers as ADD-ONS!
Scroll all the way down to see how to order your ADD-ONS!
MORE INFO ABOUT THE PROJECT:
This is for my first fully-produced comedy music EP, entitled "DANCE YOUR HATE AWAY"! It's a concept album: a blend of electronic dance music with comedy lyrics... the world's first of its kind by a female artist! You could say it's like a female fronted version of The Lonely Island (my heroes!) In the past I've been stuck with just me and my guitar, but if we raise enough money here, my tunes will have the opportunity to be realized into their full glory! I will create EDM versions of your favorites, such as WHEN I'M WITH YOU, as well as record new songs, such as THAI MASSAGE LADY! (I'm probably going to re-release the current pop recording of your favorite, DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE BALLS [#DFATB!] because it's just too perfect the way that it is! You can get that song NOW with any package you buy!)
You may know me from this:
Or maybe this:
This new project is an enormous undertaking for me. I want to make an album that is sonically spectacular, diverging from my old sound, and that new sound costs money! This is the absolute minimum I need to score the kind of producers that I want, but the more money we raise here, the better the quality of the record. Plus, if we raise more than my goal, I can make more music videos for you!

Now, add this to the mix: I've started taking burlesque dancing lessons from Hells Belles Burlesque to try and match my otherwise awkward posture to my new sexy sound! Let's just say, it's been interesting... I'm pretty bad at it right now, but I promise to get better! However, these girls are AMAZING and I'm so lucky because they are going to dance with me at my LIVE ALBUM RELEASE SHOW that you can either attend in person in Los Angeles or via live webcast from wherever you are in the world! It's going to be an epic comedy electronic dance music burlesque concert spectacular! Let's hope that by then I won't look totally stupid dancing up there with them at the show!
I will announce the date of the album release show and make tickets available to you down the line, or you can buy VIP all-access passes in advance of learning the date of the show in one of the packages I'm offering here.
In the meantime, YOU CAN MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN HERE by contributing to my campaign! I promise to make you a product that will increase your overall happiness!!
I am so grateful that you have made it to these words on my page. Thank you so much in advance for being the kind of person who helps make awesome things happen in the world!
You can get a sneak peek at some of the swag items being offered in the various reward packages below! Please keep in mind that these images are mock ups of the designs. These are not final prints because the items don't exist yet - you are helping to create these items by pledging to this campaign! So just giving you a heads up that some of these items may turn out to be slightly different than the mock up design. Thank you in advance for your understanding!
In the meantime, enjoy! And thanks so much for being a part of this!

HOW TO GET YOUR ADD-ONS!
If you'd like an add-on and you've already pledged, all you have to do is click “Manage Pledge” and add the cost of the add-on to your current pledge. If you haven't pledged yet and you want an add-on item, just add the cost of the add-on to your pledge at the time of pledging. I'll send out a survey after the campaign is over where you can specify which add-ons you've ordered.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING OF ADD-ON ITEMS: If your current pledge does not already include shipping and you are ordering from outside the US, please add an additional $20 to cover extra shipping costs. You do NOT have to add this amount if your current reward already includes an item or items that are being shipped to you internationally.
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk for me in even initiating this campaign is the possibility of not getting funded. I previously launched a campaign for the same project at a higher goal because I had set a pretty ambitious delivery deadline of December 2013 and it was going to cost a lot more money to get this project done that quickly. So I set a new deadline of March 2014 and it's going to be a lot easier to get this project done for a lot less money with a more realistic deadline. I was also originally going to record 10 tracks and now it might be more like 5 or 6 tracks depending on how quickly we can get each track done. So, this record will be shorter and delivered a little bit later - but if we can reach the more realistic $5k goal, at least it will exist as opposed to not exist!
The challenge for my team will probably be that this is a brand new genre of music for all of us and the experimental nature of what we are trying to pull off could cause delays that we can't now predict. BUT, if this record gets funded, everyone will get all of their rewards on time, by hell or high water!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
