So I never thought being a musician was a real possibility for me. I was just going to be a mom. Then MY mom forced me to audition for American Idol two seasons ago. I laughed at this. Then laughed AND cried when I found myself in the top ten finalists. I went on the American Idols live tour. I came home and realized I had a shot at being a mom that provides for her son......by singing. Miraculous :) I had incredible people wanting to work with me so I spent a year writing and recording 23 of my own original songs. Who knew I could write more than journal entries? I then spent many months "Label Shopping". It wasnt cool. But I need money to finish the recordings then mix and master, so I met with every major label around. I have the need to control my time, music and money being a mom. Labels have the need to control my time, music and money being money grubbing suits. It didnt work out for either of us. Then I was recently shown Kickstarter. DING DING DING.
The bottom line....
Sharing my words and voice wasnt even my choice, its my fate. I HAVE to share. My songs come from my heart (cheesy, goll I know, but true) I will never try to be someone Im not and Im very proud of that. Someone Im not is a rich woman. I need $15,000 for the following:
*To hire musicians to re-record 7 of my original songs
*Rent studio space
*To mix and master the songs
*To prep for releasing the EP (photoshoot, art, duplication,packaging)
*And to hook you fine folks up for helping me out :)
Thank you for taking the time to read and watch. THANK YOU A MILLION TRILLION TIMES IF YOU PLEDGE EVEN A TINY BIT.... I promise it will be worth it. Please feel free to further investigate the inner workings of Megan "Tilly bomb" Joy:
