Hello! Nessa Rica here!
I’m an independent singer/songwriter originally from Sydney, Australia but now residing in LA LA Land! It's been six years since the release of my last EP, ‘Journey’, and its time for something new and I want you to be a part of it!
My Story. My Journey.Music has always been my passion but was put on the back burner because I became convinced that a higher education and a stable job was more important. Then last year, I was laid off from two jobs for bogus, involuntary reasons that were beyond my control. You could say it was all “Too Much” to handle.
Instead of allowing these circumstances to weigh me down and make me feel irrelevant, I decided to take time to refocus and figure out who I was and what I was called to do. I pushed myself to schedule studio time with my amazingly talented friends and producers - Jesse Barrera and JBird.
I just knew I had pursue the urge to create. I needed to create. I felt as if God placed me on a mandatory sabbatical in order to be vulnerable in the creation of music and words to express my life’s experiences. From letdowns, let goes and heartaches, to joy, happiness and contentment.
I feel this incredible responsibility to share my story through music. If you had told me 10 years ago that I would be given the opportunity to live in another country, be surrounded by amazing and talented people and to pursue music, I wouldn’t have believed you! I had to leave my comfort to move into new territory. It was frightening, to say the least, but it has been THE most rewarding experience of my life – an experience and opportunity I am forever grateful for.
As an independent artist, every journey I step into starts and ends with you. For YOU are my record label, listeners, promoters, and supporters – you are how my music gets shared with the world.
By way of Kickstarter, it will help me in covering the costs of making this new record and I need your help.
These funds will go towards:
- Studio time
- Visual Content
In return, I have some pretty cool rewards like: exclusive merchandise, foodie hang outs, songwriting sessions and even an opportunity to have a song written about you on this record! I hope to release this record by the end of 2017. But if we do not reach our goal, your money will be returned back to you and this project will be postponed. A successful outcome of this campaign would mean the world to me!
I am overwhelmed and humbled by the amount of love and support I’ve been shown throughout the years; in my life and through my music. Thank you in advance for the support!
Risks and challenges
The possible setbacks could be scheduling delays in the recording process. This includes time needed for tracking, editing, post-production, mixing, mastering, design/packaging and duplication. Antoher would be in fulfilling the Kickstarter rewards. If there are any complications with this, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you ASAP.
Ultimately, if I don't reach my funding goal of $5000, all the backers will get their money back & the whole project will be postponed. But I believe we can do this!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
