Hi, my name is Jaya Bremer and for those of you who don't know me, I am a musician in Victoria, BC.
I am set to begin recording my first solo EP from June 15th to June 21st, you might wonder why my GoFundMe is only getting going now, but the truth is its really hard to ask for help, but I am letting myself fall into your hands friends, family and peers, and hoping that you believe in me and trust that I will make extraordinary use of every penny that is donated, and make a great album!
I have been a very active part of Victoria's music scene for the last five years, with jazz performances, Patsy Cline tributes, Indie rock shows with Wise Child and solo sets.
Over the last few years I have invested a great deal in my collaborative project Wise Child, with whom I recorded two albums, but my desire to persevere with my solo project JAYA has grown and grown, and I have honed around 60 songs down to Seven that I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to share with all of you.
This is going to be a game changer for everything that comes next for me musically. This album will enable me to tour, push it to radio, and promote this project as I see fit. I will gain independence as an artist.
I feel like one heck of a lucky girl to have the team of people on board that I do. Kevin Corbett drummer and bassist extraordinaire, recording artist and multi-instrumentalist TOVI, and Sound Engineer/Producer Damian Wiseman, all of whom I met and had the pleasure of working with at The Banff Centre of the Arts.
This project is going to cost $8,000 in total. I am asking your help in getting me half way there. Here's a break down of what goes in to making an album :)
- Studio/week: $600
- Sound Engineer/week: $2,200
- Mixing/ 3 days: $800
- Hired Musicians: $1,500

- Gear Rentals: $400
- Printing CDs: 200 x $3.00 = $600
- Album art: $200
- Marketing/Promotion $1,000

With EVERY donation given you will receive a download of the album as soon as it becomes available, or a physical cd.
Let's continue to make art.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
Risks and challenges
Risks or challenges I could encounter on this project could be data loss such as a computer crash with the tracks on it, but I am working with professionals that will be taking all precautions by backing up all data on external drives.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
