ABOUT Rachel Lynn Sebastian

Hi there everyone :) Rachel Lynn, here. First of all, thank you so much for coming to our page. I'd like to start by telling you a little about my recording career so far:

This is my first cohesive project since my debut album, NEW DAY in 2006. Since then, I've written and recorded over 25 singles in collaborative projects across the world. Some of my singles have been placed in feature films, on Rock Band, received rave online,  and on-air T.V. and Radio reviews, as well as radio play from Los Angeles to London.  I was also a nominee in 2011 for the Hollywood Music in Media Awards - Best Female Vocalist - as well as recognized as a Top Five Vocalist in Singer Universe Magazine.

Why does this project matter to me?

I'm a radical believer in following your HEART and living life as if it is your last day on earth. Gratitude rushes through my veins when I realize how amazing FREE WILL is and how BLESSED I am to be doing what I love. The extremes of my life have colored my story book in ways I could never have imagined. Living this lifestyle has led me from scraping pennies from under my car seat in order to pay the rent to receiving a third of my entire year's income from a 6-hour vocal session - from applying for foodstamps to touring Asia in five-star hotels. I've experienced the full spectrum of life; and, now, yet again at a crossroads, I choose to continue with my solo career - my love of music - my love for sharing my passion with all of you - NO MATTER WHAT.

WHY NOW?

The truth is I've always believed in myself. I've always seen myself IN FRONT OF TENS of THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE in amphitheaters and stadiums all over the world. But, there was a moment just a month ago when I realized that I was "waiting" on SOMEONE ELSE to tell me I was good enough to do it. I was waiting on the "right band" to form - waiting on management - or a record deal - or a booking agent - whatever - someone - someTHING - ANYTHING to confirm that I was good enough.

You know what the truth is, my dear friends? The truth is that YOU are the only people whose acceptance really matters to me. And over the years, YOU have been so incredibly supportive and confirming of my own beliefs with your beliefs in my talent, voice, songwriting and WHO I AM. That is SO very meaningful to me.

IN OTHER WORDS

TOGETHER...WE the PEOPLE hold the power. And in 2012, now, we will show the world that Meaningful, Passionate and Independent music WILL have a GLOBAL IMPACT. 

WHAT IS 'Raven Heart' ABOUT?

'Raven Heart' is the name of my future son...really.

And this entire album is a passionate, powerful and inspiring story of a woman's struggle: the struggle maintaining a relationship, hoping for a family, while burning deep deep deep inside to realize a dream to go on the road, to entertain and inspire the masses, to make a better life for herself, her family, her future family, and the WORLD.

Isn't that what so many of you have faced? A time in your life where you've given so much of yourself and wonder what it would be like to be on the other side? I truly believe that when we give to ourselves, because of our interconnectedness, that we are truly giving to each other.

My purpose in life is what I'm doing right now: this project. I believe with all of my heart that it will lead to the coming together of people of all backgrounds - a necessary evolution in consciousness at such a changing time.

'RAVEN HEART'

Raven...my little Raven Heart

One day you'll wake and

show me who you are

I won't let go...no, never never, no

A little light, shining inside

reminding me I'm not alone

and I've so much to live for

Don't stop knocking at my door

I'll be ready one day

and I ask you to wait

wait for me...wait for me...

I'm gonna make it better for us

I need to be sure when you come

that you're well taken care of

There's already so much love

I'll be ready one day

and I ask you to wait

wait for me...wait for me...

WHAT WILL THE MUSIC BE LIKE?

The music is SIMPLY INCREDIBLE. The songs are FULLY PRODUCED (so don't be confused by the solo acoustic spot in the above video). It is a mixture of Rock, Soul, Blues and world music.  There are Passionate Rock Ballads - Soulful Blues - Danceable Swing Beats - and even a Lullaby. Think 'Adele' meets 'Kings of Leon' meets 'Tracy Chapman'.  Although it seems diverse, somehow it ALL FLOWS together and is an incredibly cohesive project. You can check out my older music HERE to hear my voice and get a sample of my writing style if you're not already familiar:

http://www.RachelLynnSebastian.com

In all honesty, I've never written a better album in my life. The melodies are SO gorgeous and equally catchy. We hope to have at least one of the songs recorded and online before the Kickstarter is over.

But, right now we're stuck in pre-production phase without the financial backing to move forward into production where the finishing magic happens. 

I've worked with SO many gifted musicians and producers over the years. BELIEVE ME that choosing a producer was very hard decision to make when it came down to it. Imagine knowing over 200 producers and 20 of them are your CLOSE friends.

In the final analysis, it came down to working with a production company (Demo Doctors) that is teamed with all-star musicians (see above) and a stellar recording facility (Skip Saylor Studios) that could work within a reasonable budget. We were quoted $1,000 a song. I was simply astounded at the value. You see, I've worked with producers that have charged up to $2,500 for one song (not including live musicians). Live musicians ALONE would be $600 per song @ $150 a pop. And this quote includes vocal production, production, live musicians AND mixing.

Please believe me when I say we will ALL be very proud of the finished product.

WHAT ABOUT MY TOUR? AM I COMING TO YOUR TOWN?

YES! I am coming to your town. :)  I just downsized from a Ford Explorer to a good ol' dependable and economical 5-speed Toyota Camry to make a LENGTHY and exciting trip in and out of all 48 mainland states.

In the bigger cities I will be hitting up music venues and also performing at local festivals and philanthropic events. However, the BULK of my tour will be in booking my house concert series.

House concerts are an ingenious way to tour. This unique concert setting allows fans to have a blast promoting and hosting a live performance for their own friends and family in their own space. It is also an amazingly intimate venue. Imagine a listening-room where my voice rings out and otherwise a pin drop can be heard. I'm so incredibly excited to get to know you all on a more intimate, familiar level.

WHAT IS YOUR MARKETING PLAN?

We already have an L.A.-based newspaper and one magazine on board to review our CD for print reviews, and we haven't even started marketing. We also have several online radio stations ready to promote us as well.

The real work for me will be maintaining a steady stream of content on the social networking sites and continuously blogging on my tour.

I will also be contacting all local (genre-specific and college) radio stations to book interviews and live on-air performances.

The Tour in itself, of course, is a MAJOR form of marketing because "live and in-person" will, for all the ages, be more impressive than any form of media.

These are the starter things that we can do with a minimum budget and we will make the most out of what we have at the grass-roots level.

Ideally, of course, additional funding will come and we will be able to set up a full-blown college radio marketing campaign (the next best thing to main-stream, and,  in my opinion, THE BEST form of radio). We would also be able to fund social networking advertising as well as other online tools that increase website traffic.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I REACH MY GOAL? SHOULD YOU STILL PLEDGE?

YES, for the LOVE OF MUSIC. YES, PLEASE! Our budget is an exact budget as discussed above and we have asked for the exact amount we'll need for the record. We haven't even over-budgeted for the 5% that Kickstarter will rightfully take for hosting us or the 3-5% that Amazon will take for processing your credit card payments.

We kept the budget at a minimum. We did this because it is Kickstarter policy that the full amount be pledged. In other words, we must be 100% funded, or we will not receive one dime of your pledges.

Anything that is pledged over our budget WILL be used for the remaining recording expenses, tour expenses and marketing.

In fact, I know many of you (worldwide) are very successful (and rightfully so) and have been offering your financial backing for years and have just simply said, "let me know." If you would like to invest in our project outside of Kickstarter with a greater amount than $10,000 (the Kickstarter limit) please contact me directly, and I can refer you to my lawyer, and we can draw up a business plan that makes sense for both of us.

YOU DON'T SEE A REWARD THAT YOU'RE EXCITED ABOUT : ( WHAT CAN YOU DO?

In the above case, PLEASE GO AHEAD AND PLEDGE an amount that makes you FEEL GOOD and email me your idea. In your email please propose what reward you would like to receive (outside of anything listed in the rewards section) and we will come up with a great plan that works for both of us.

I WANT YOU TO BE EXCITED for your reward, and THAT is how it will be if we work together.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

We (myself, the producers, studio owner, engineers, musicians AND my loving family, friends and loyal fans) are EXTREMELY grateful for each and every contribution.

A special thanks to Thomas Valle-Guatemala, Roxie Sakura and Peggy Glen for their generous help on the making of this Kickstarter page.

TOGETHER WE THE PEOPLE will MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. You are LOVED.
