I am a singer songwriter of Turkish origin, based in London.
 
I am in the process of recording my next EP, which is, as well as being very exciting, also pretty costy and I do need your support.
 
So far I have released an album of my Turkish songs, an EP of my English songs and a couple of singles. I have collaborated with several bands such as Sam and The Womp, The Egg, Oojami, have produced several tracks with the great drummer/producer Tansay Omar.
 

I am a singer who loves writing at least as much performing. I love the whole process from the sparkles of melody and lyric falls out from your mind, all the way to producing, elaborating and finding them a home in your mp3 players!

I am very lucky to have a band of incredible musicians as well. Paul Tkachenko, Dan Lipman, Tansay Omar, Fatih Ebrem and Pablo Dominguez will be joining me on recording as well, after several performances we had together.

I will produce this EP with Raz Olsher, who has hit the charts a couple of years ago with his production of Bom Bom/Sam and The Womp.

 
We have the studio booked, songs written and ripe to be recorded, all the team ready to go! However I need money to be able to finish it and could really really do with some support :)  
I do need money to pay for the studio and production time, mixing, mastering and printing CD's.
 

I will deliver you 4 songs by mid January. And by the end of January or beginning of February, I will be sharing my first video of the EP. I have loads and loads of songs I wrote both in English and Turkish and have gone through a long thought process to pick the next 4 and finally decided on 4 tracks which I think at this moment are a very spot on reflection of different influences on my music and of the incredible musicians I work with. Apart from one dance track (produced with electronic dance pioneers 'The Egg')  which will be a bonus, all the rest are a blend of subtle Turkish flavours, folk, and dreaminess.

Risks and challenges

Once we have the money, there shouldn't be any obstacles! We have a wonderful team and worked together in harmony several times.
Yet, obviously, there is the 'you never know' element. Hmmm, I think the most possible mess up can be with timings of my rewards. there might be delays, I must say. I would however keep you informed about these as soon as they appear! the delays wouldn't be longer than 2 months and you WILL receive your reward guaranteed.. !

Included in my rewards are live performances by my band or myself. I would love to book a date and time thats suitable to you but I would appreciate your understanding that we might not be free and hopefully via communication we can set a date suitable for us both.
