My name is Amy Atchley and I’m a singer songwriter in Austin, TX. I've been playing music for almost my whole life. It’s the passion of my youth and it is as true to me today as it was then when I was a little girl. I love to make music and I really love to share it with you.
I've got to be honest, though. Right now I’m feeling a little bit nervous.
Making music is the fun part. Asking for your help is not easy. But I come to you now and ask that you join me in creating something beautiful. With your contribution through Kickstarter, creative dreams are within reach for an independent artist like myself.
But I can’t do it without you.
I can promise that I will give everything that I've got to this project. My goal is to raise $2000. I know that sounds like a lot of money, but in the music recording industry, this is a modest amount. Your contribution will help to cover studio time, producer and musician fees, engineering, mixing, mastering, CD packaging, and finally marketing and promotion. The final cost will surely be much more than $2000 but with Kickstarter, it's an all or nothing proposition, so I thought we'd start with something achievable. The cool thing is we can raise more than $2000 but I'll need your help!
The recording will showcase my original songs and it will feature amazing Austin, TX talent backing me. Every dollar counts at whatever level. Please do what you can. If you can’t contribute financially, please support this by sharing with your friends, family and through your own social media networks.
Please help me finish this project and keep independent music alive. Thank you so much for helping make this happen! It’s gonna be a project that I’m proud to put out there and hopefully you will be very proud to have been a part of. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to share this experience with you! Thank you so much.
Amy has performed nationally from Austin to Los Angeles to New York with 3 independent releases, Speeding, Wish and Pretty Muse. She has spent time in the studio doing commercial work for Barbie, Mattel, Disney, the New York Lottery, and Ebay just to name a few. In recent years, Amy has stayed close to home raising two beautiful daughters and dedicated time to helping those in need in the Austin community at Meals on Wheels and More.
Risks and challenges
Making a record is a long and complex process. Once funded, I'll still have to mix and master the music. I'll also have to have the artwork created and have the CD's pressed. Finally, we'll have to get them all shipped out to you so there are lots of variables involved. I am positive that we'll get this done with your help and it's possible, but not probable, that we'll be late with the final product. Thank you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
