Nicolas Bearde's "You're Sensational", Jazz for the Soul
My name is Nicolas Bearde and I am a singer, songwriter, jazz recording artist, and educator. Many of you might know something about me and my music, but if not, I would like to tell you a little bit about where I have been and where I am going.
Fresh from the LMC Jazz Festival in Croatia, this past month, and stops in Berlin, Germany and Zurich, Switzerland, I'm ready to finish work on my fourth album. It's joyful and exhilarating to be back in the studio after spending the last few years performing all over the globe. I've traveled far and near, from California to New York, Mexico to Canada and to so many wonderful stops throughout Europe, Russia and the Far East. And by the way, that includes Siberia (yes, I did say Siberia, the coldest place on earth!!!!) The music that I'm doing for this project will take me back to my Jazz and R&B roots and will focus on my original compositions and the music of some great contemporary songwriters like Jon Lucien and Stevie Wonder.
My producing partners, legendary bassist, Alphonso Johnson, Grammy winning songwriter/producer, Larry Batiste and Grammy-nominated producer, Bud Spangler and I have been clocking a lot of time writing songs, recording, mapping out the production and laying out a marketing plan. And now we need your financial participation ($$$) to help finish the project. I am thrilled about the new music we're doing and I hope you'll be a part of making this new CD a reality. Check out the rewards panel to the right to see the exclusive, personalized, and amazingly cool gifts we've got lined up for you when you pledge, and read below to see why your support is so important to us.
The Kickstarter campaign is a crowd funding program that allows INDEPENDENT ARTISTS to reach out to fans, friends and others to help create projects like this. Here's how it works:
The money you pledge in exchange for rewards will allow us to complete the project and YOU will get lots of good music and other stuff. If we don't reach our goal before the deadline we get no money at all and the backers accounts are not charged. If we exceed our $21,600 goal on the other hand (and we hope we do), the additional funds will be used to enhance production and promotion. So don't hold back!! The more you give the more REWARDS you get.
It is a major slice of heaven to work with these legendary producers and the amazingly talented musicians who are signed on to this project. We've already recorded two remarkable tracks, "You're Sensational" written by Jon Lucien, and "Shower the People" written by James Taylor, with renowned bassist, Alphonso Johnson (Weather Report), keyboardist, David "Creatchy' Garfield, (George Benson), drummer, Mike Shapiro and Brazilian guitarist, Kleber Jorge (Sergio Mendes band) and I can't wait to finish the project. I think you're gonna love it!
