Better Together: You can be a part of the making of my debut album!

(la version française est en bas)

Better Together:

I love the African proverb that says, "It takes a village to raise a child,"  (Opinions on parenting aside) ☺ because I think it points to something that is universally true... community matters.  John Donne's poem "No Man Is an Island" points to the same truth...that we need each other; we are all connected.  I truly believe that we are better together...and together we can do more than we could alone.

That's why I am reaching out to you my fans, my community to help me make this album.  Already, this album project has been an intensely collaborative effort of friends, family and other contributors...every one of us contributing what we can to make the collective whole, my debut album, a total success!  It's true, I can't make this album by myself....but more importantly I don't want to make this album by myself. I love that this is a project that I am doing with all of you because at the end of the day this music is for you!  How great is that?! ☺

My hope and prayer is that you and everyone else that hears my album will be totally blessed and encouraged by all of the songs written for this project....because they were written with you in mind and in heart.  You can help me make this a reality, by donating whatever you can to this project.  Whether you can give a single dollar or a million dollars, every dollar counts and every dollar is deeply appreciated!  We need to raise $25,000 in 30 days or this project can’t go forward!

So Why $25,000?

I know this might seem like a lot of money, but to be honest it is pretty bare-bones…most major labels spend about 10 times that amount just to record an artist’s album (crazy right?!).  However, because of the generosity of a lot of kind and talented friends (including this project’s producers) who are doing things at a cut-rate for me, I will be able to record a professional sounding album that can compete on EVERY level in today’s music industry!  Awesome, right?!

What will the album be like?

So this will be a “pop” album…but truthfully, I tend to write songs with a little bit of a folk flair…One of my producers calls it “folk-a-pop” haha. :) Really, my songs are just honest, authentic songs about real life.  Trust me, when I say the production on this album will be great, lots of strings, sweet drums grooves and guitar licks!

But it will still be the same kind of music my fans have come to expect, melody and lyric driven music that can still sound great all stripped down and acoustic…best of both worlds, I’d say! ☺

Why am I asking you, my fans, to get involved?

Kickstarter is an amazing platform that helps artists, like me, connect with their fan base in a unique way.  I may not have a label or manager or all of that….BUT I do have YOU and Kickstarter, and together we can make an album!  Love that! ☺

Who can contribute?

Anyone! Everyone!  It doesn’t matter if you live in Paris, France or Paris, TX.  All donations are handled online through Kickstarter and Amazon, so it’s super easy to become a partner on this project!  Here’s a link if you have additional questions.

When will the album come out?

I’m aiming to release this record August/September 2012.  We are recording all of June, so once it’s a done…there won’t be any waiting around or long drawn out build up…This Kickstarter project IS the build up!  By getting involved now, you will know exactly what, when, where and how you can get my new album!

Thank you SO very much for believing in this project and me!  You guys are the best!!

Version française

Mieux Ensemble:

J'aime le proverbe africain qui dit: "Il faut un village pour élever un enfant», (avis sur le rôle parental à part) ☺ parce que je pense qu'il parle de quelque chose qui est universellement vrai ... la communauté est importante. Le poème de John Donne "Aucun homme n'est une île" tend vers la même vérité ... que nous ayons besoin les uns des autres; nous sommes tous interconnectés.  Je crois vraiment que nous sommes mieux ensemble ... et ensemble nous pouvons faire plus que ce que nous ne pourrions faire seul.


C'est pourquoi je suis en contact avec vous mes fans, qui forment ma communauté pour m'aider à réaliser cet album. Tout d'abords; ce projet émane d'un effort collectif impliquant amis, famille et collaborateurs.  Tous ont fait leur possible pour m'aider à développer cette œuvre et l'ammener vers son succès.  C'est vrai, je ne veux, et ne peux faire cet album seule.  J'aime l'idée de voir ce projet se bâtir avec vous tous, car finalement, cette musique est pour vous! (Génial, non?)


Mon espoir et ma prière sont que vous (et le monde entier) soyez totalement bénis et encouragés par toutes les chansons écrites pour cet album.  Parce qu'elles ont été écrites en pensant à vous. Vous pouvez m'aider à réaliser ce projet, en donnant ce que vous pouvez.  Peu importe si vous pouvez donner un seul dollar ou un million de dollars, croyez-moi, chaque dollar compte et chaque dollar est très apprécié! Nous avons besoin de collecter $25 000 en 30 jours ou ce projet ne pourra pas lancer!

Alors pourquoi $25 000 ?

Je sais que cela peut sembler beaucoup d'argent, néanmoins cette somme représente le strict minimum.  La plupart des grands labels dépensent environ 10 fois ce montant pour enregistrer l'album d'un artiste (incroyable, non ?). Toutefois, grâce à la générosité et aux talents de mes amis (surtout les producteurs de ce projet, tous bénévoles) je serais capable d'enregistrer un album, professionnel d'un haut niveau de qualité, qui pourra être présenter dans l'industrie de la musique.

Ce album, à quoi ressemble t il?

Ce sera donc un album pop... mais honnêtement, j'ai tendance à écrire des chansons un peu flair folk ... Un de mes producteurs appelle ça le « folk-a-pop » haha. ☺ Mais vraiment, mes chansons sont juste honnêtes, chansons avec les thèmes qui sont inspirés de la vie quotidienne, la vie réelle. Croyez-moi quand je dis que la production de cet album sera formidable, avec beaucoup de beaux accords, de percussions et de rythme.  Mais il sera toujours le même style musical tant apprécié par mes fans.  La musique, la mélodie, les paroles fonctionnent soit avec un groupe, soit en acoustique.  Je dirais, c’est le meilleur des deux! ☺

Pourquoi je vous demande, mes fans, à s’engager avec moi?

Kickstarter est une plate-forme étonnante qui aide les artistes, comme moi, à se connecter avec leur base de fans d'une manière unique. Même si je n'ai pas de manager ou de label, ce n’est pas grave parce que j’ai vous et Kickstarter, et ensemble nous pouvons lancer cet album! C’est nickel! ☺

Qui peut contribuer?

N'importe qui! N’importe où !  Peu importe où vous habitez… soit à Paris, France soit à Paris, Texas. Tous les dons sont traités en ligne par Kickstarter et Amazon.  Il est donc très facile de devenir un partenaire sur ce projet! Voici un lien si vous avez des questions supplémentaires (Je suis désolée, c’est disponible qu’en anglais).

Quand l'album sortira?

Normalement, ce album va sortir en août ou septembre 2012. Nous enregistrons toutes les chansons en juin, donc une fois que c'est fait ... il n'y aura pas beaucoup d’attente avant le lancement... Ce projet Kickstarter est l'attente!  Ce qui veut dire que, maintenant, vous savez exactement quoi, quand, et comment vous pouvez obtenir mon nouvel album!

Je vous remercie beaucoup d'avoir cru en ce projet et en moi!  Merci à tout le monde, vous êtes les meilleurs!
