Hey! I'm Cara Frew :)

I’m a South African born Singer Songwriter and Performer. Music has always been my passion and a huge part of my life. I’m a hard worker and have been getting a lot of traction lately which has helped to grow and develop my music to further my career.

I released 3 hit songs last year. “Falling,” “Invisible” and “Only High With You.” The first two I put out independently with success, both reaching #1 on the South African charts. Because of this, Sony Music Entertainment was alerted to me and they offered a licensing deal for the third single and subsequently an album. This is a great step forward as they market and distribute to a much wider audience than I would be able to on my own. This will help me reach the next level as an artist.

I’m currently working on my 10 track debut album and looking to retain full master recording rights so that I can keep artistic control of my music and stay true to myself. Recording and production costs don’t come cheap so I’m crowd funding to get the necessary resources to finish the project.

This is where you lovely, generous people come in. Any contribution would be of great assistance!

I am looking for $30,000 to complete my project, please find breakdown of costs below:

$6,000 (For songwriting sessions and studio costs $500 per session X 12 sessions)

$18,000 (For production of 10 songs $1,800 per song production X 10 songs)

$6,000 (For mix and mastering $500 per mix and master X 10 songs)

What will you get? You will get the satisfaction of being a supporter of Music and the Arts, which enhance our lives so greatly and you will be helping me fulfill a life long dream! So please get involved and don’t forget to check the rewards section as I’m offering some pretty cool give aways :)

As a way of me giving back, I will be giving all proceeds from sales of one of my songs towards funding children’s education in my country, I currently work closely with Lapeng pre school in Johannesburg CBD.

Watch my Music Video for "Falling"

Watch my Music Video is for "Invisible." 

Please don't hesitate to contact me for any more information!

Thanks so much for your precious time, I really appreciate it :)

Risks and challenges

I understand that I am working in a very competitive industry with high barriers of entry. Once my project is funded, I will make sure to make the most of my release. This will require great PR, marketing, strategy, radio plugging and social media experts but the project has already been licensed to Sony Music Entertainment World Wide so this risk has been minimized and lies in their execution. I not only believe in the expertise of the Sony corporation but I believe that my album will stand out and hold it's own among the best in the world :) If you want to be a part of something incredible, please get involved xxx
