My first venture into making an album couldn't be done without the help from people such as yourself...thank you for reading about my upcoming project!  I am going to record my first album this spring and am raising funds to make this happen.  All funds that are raised will be going directly into the production of this album covering studio rental costs, paying musicians who will record with me, mixing and printing the CDs.   There will be anywhere from 11 to 12 songs on my album.  Some of the titles of the songs are, "Stay", "Shine", "Eyes", "Free".  These songs were written about my life and the lives of others who have been an inspiration to me.  For audio samples of the songs I will be recording, please visit my website, www.alisonacton.com!  These songs are made complete by sharing them with people...so thank you in advance for helping me to create fully!

Risks and challenges

Five kids. The biggest challenge to completing this project is most definitely the blessing of my large family. In high demand during the day...I have learned that I must put order and boundaries upon my daily life in order to make time to complete this project. I wish I had all the time in the world! Four months to live in an airstream with my guitar and just devote hours upon hours. Yet...I get to be a mommy and a wife....and a musician. So, balance and time management are my biggest challenges.
