Thank you so much for visiting my page. I am very excited about this project.  I have 35 days to reach my goal of $17,500.  If I DO NOT reach my goal by the 35th day, I will not receive ANY funding and anyone who donated will have their money returned to them.  This is risky but I'm just gonna put my trust out there.  Let's make this happen together!  :)

WHO IS THIS MIRANDA CHICK?

I am incredibly passionate about music. I've been writing ever since I was big enough to crawl up onto the piano bench and reach the keys. I’ve always loved creating my own songs. I was trained in classical Royal Conservatory piano but always had an interesting way of learning music. I played strictly by ear. I listened to my instructors play a song and it was as though I had this invisible recorder in my ear that played the music back to me. Even if I had only heard it once, I would then play it back to my teachers while "pretending" to read the sheet music. Sneaky, I know. 

I got away with it for a little while but inevitably, every teacher I had would "let me go" after a few months. My 4th teacher finally caught on and told my mother that I would be much better off in a composing class. She said I kept trying to add my own spin on classic Mozart and Beethoven pieces. I mean, really?  What did she know. :) Sooooo, my mother put me into a more creative class and Ahhhhh, Freedom!.... I've been writing ever since!

WHY THIS PROJECT IS SPECIAL TO ME:

This album will be very special to me for a number of reasons. Of most significance, is that the last few years have been filled with a tremendous amount of personal and spiritual growth. It has helped me with my writing and it's right there in my music. I believe as an artist in the world, we have a voice. Not just through our music, but as people. People look up to you and cherish you and your art. They listen. I take this very seriously. Perhaps a message in one of my songs may help someone to feel like they are not alone, or help them through a difficult time. Maybe watching me follow my dream and do what I love might just inspire someone else to believe they can do the same. We all have our own ways of changing the world. This is mine. 

HOW YOU ARE HELPING ME:

With your contributions, I will be able to record all of these songs while working with some of the most incredible producers and amazing musicians. I'll be able to mix, master & package the album and get that sucker up on iTunes, Amazon and every other site there is. This will also be a giant stepping-stone in my career, finally having an album that truly represents me as a singer- songwriter and artist. I am an Indie artist that wants to create, promote, and perform without being under the control of a record label. I have had some wonderful success placing my songs on television series, feature and Indie films, and I expect to have even more success doing so with the songs on this album. So really, with your help, you won't just be helping me make an album. You will be helping me continue the success of my music career in a huge way. :)

WHERE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS WILL GO:

I will be recording an EP album which is half of a full album. 6 songs. It's what all the cool kids are doing lately. :)  I have funded one of the songs on my own and now I need help with finishing my album.

Here's where your contributions will go:

~Producer's fees -  $2850/song x 5 =  $14,250

~Studio Engineer fees  -  approx. $2000

~Studio Rental - TBD

~Musicians (drummer/guitar/bass)  -  approx. $1875 for 5 songs

~Mixing & Mastering   $1800 (6 songs)

~Album Artwork  $700 (album cover shoot) / $350 (album artwork)

~CD hard copy set up and duplication  $400 (1st run)

As you can see, I am asking for much less than what I will need.  If I don't reach my projected goal of $17,500 by the end date, I will not receive any of the funds and will not be able to record my album.  Anyone who has contributed will have their money returned to them.  I am, however, putting it out there I will surpass my goal!!  In my dream world, I will raise more and be able to shoot a music video as well!!

WHAT YOU GET FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION:

CHALLENGES:

It’s always kind of a tough thing putting up a site like this and asking for help. Especially asking for money. I'm one of those people that likes to let people know that I've got it all covered and that I can do it all myself. Turns out I can’t do this myself. Facing this, I now believe that allowing others in to help is a sign of strength. Trusting that people love you and will show up for you is a real challenge. However, it is now a challenge that I willingly accept. That being said, I am not asking of you with expectation. If you feel like you want to help and you can, amazing! If you can't, that's ok too! There are other ways to share in this campaign. For instance, I'd love for you to tweet about it, share it on Facebook or send the link to your family and friends.  Help me make some noise and spread the word!! I appreciate any help you can give! 

 Thank you so much for your support. I will forever be grateful. 

 Love,

 Miranda

Risks and challenges

Organizing this campaign has been incredibly challenging. Asking people for help is something I am taking very seriously. I have put in countless hours just researching costs for my project, filming and editing my video, carefully writing every word on this page, organizing my rewards and my costs for shipping and materials and budgeting exactly what I will need to make this all happen. It has turned into a full time job! :)
I promise you that I won't take even a dollar raised for granted. Every penny of this campaign will go towards this album. This will be something I am so incredibly proud of and I am so grateful that you will be a part of it.
