NEW MUSIC IS HERE... 

BE THE FIRST TO GET IT

Dear friends, family, long-time and new fans,

It's been 7 years since producing my last album, "Sand and Rain". 

Since then, I have been inspired by:

  • my 3 beautiful babies 
  • risk-takers
  • heartbreak and healing
  • incredible musicians and faithful friends
  • the power of creation

My perspective has expanded since my last record. I've been forced to do some incredibly difficult things, cry, patch up what hurts, and rewire my mind. You've been there before, I know you get it.

The music I've held inside of me during these years of change and contemplation is about as authentic as I can be. This new music is the real me.

THE RECORD

The EP record is a mini album of about 5 of my songs. It's about waking up, stepping into the light, and catching that inspiring breeze that blows us into where we're meant to be. 

These songs are about the incredible beauty I find amid the pain, and the love that grows from loss. It's about being brave, human, and alive. 

These songs are dedicated to you, my early supporters who have been such a strength to me.

MAKING IT HAPPEN

In October 2017, I'll be spending a week in a cozy Seattle recording studio, Hall of Justice. (The inside looks like an IKEA apartment - I'll post pics!). I'll be working side by side the incredibly talented and renowned producer Andy Park. I've got the best musicians in Seattle to bring you my newest work. It's going to be amazing - I can't wait! 

Here's where I need your help. Your donated funds for this project will pay for:

  • Studio recording time, paying musicians, and mixing 
  • Mastering (adjusting levels and sound quality)
  • CD production and delivery
  • Photography and album design
  • Promotion (press kits, videos, hiring a publicist)
  • Paying a babysitter to help at home while I'm in the studio 

This project is only possible if it's fully funded by you, my supporter. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your contributions and for believing in my work. I am only a conduit of the music intended and written for you, the listener. 

Make your donation by selecting from a pledge level at the side-bar on the right. Remember, your pledge will only be collected if the project goal is met by backers.

As a supporter of this campaign, you are my own VIP and will receive the album before anyone else. And a big hug from me if I see you!

Please SHARE this campaign with friends and family who would enjoy the music. I'd love to exceed my goal so I can plan the next record and get my music out to more people. If 500 people donate $30, the campaign will be funded!

I'll be releasing singles of the album in 2017, followed by a final release in the spring of 2018. You will each have priority access to the album.

Thank you again for being an early backer of the dream team. It means more than you'll ever know.

With love and so much gratitude,

Angela

PS - The campaign runs for only 30 days and ends on SEPTEMBER 13!

Risks and challenges

Like any large-scale project, there are factors that can cause delays. Everything hangs on studio time, musicians, traffic, mastering, CD production, promotion, the US Postal Service, and...my babysitter. If any of these are delayed, there could be a hold up in getting you the album by the determined date.

We'll do our very best to get you your CD or concert or personal phone call as soon as possible. As an early backer, you mean so very much to the future of this music and we value you enormously. Thank you for your patience as we put everything together into something you can hold and listen to. Again, thank you for your incredible support.
