Music is so broad and wide in it's variety nowadays that it's hard to be successful in a modern industry. I hope to start young, with the help of my family, to allow people all over to enjoy my music that I write.

Currently, I'm a student at a music school, about to take a journey to a sixth form somewhere to study what I love. 'Project Armia' is only the start, with the 11 Track album 'Armia' needing to be recorded, presented and listened to by anyone anywhere. All the songs are original, both melody and lyrics, and will feature a few artists my age who are all wanting the same dream.

The money will be used as such, sent to a parents account:
£800 for studio time
£400 for mixing and finalising tracks
£300 for printing and distributing

It does seem ambitious, but I've always aimed high. You can listen to some of my music (home recorded in not the best quality, but still as real as ever) at www.soundcloud.com/kavanacrossley.

Another twist in this story is that my dear friend Tommy Highwood is starting up his clothing and fashion company 'Untucked', in which I hope money raised from the aftermath of this project will help to give him a boost in his ideas as a designer.

This project is only the start of many. I just want people to hear my work.

Risks and challenges

No record-making is easy, and anyone familiar with the music industry will know that. A first problem I had to overcome was writing the songs first. However I've had plenty of time to come up with a range and variety of ideas for this 11 Track album, with the best 11 ideas I have being chosen.

Another is recording the album. Luckily being in a music college, I am able to find friends more than capable of helping me produce good music with their instrument playing, and hard work and rehearsals won't go amiss.

After the funding is done, work'll start straight away in the studio. It will be hard work, but I'll be motivated not only by the time pressure but also by the fact that it was hard work getting here, and too late to waste any time.

It'll be tough to get my album selling via rucksacks and the like, but I'll take it to anywhere I can find to sell. Then it's onwards and upwards to make more music.
