Lu'Ami Live @ Brighton Dome

My mission through my music is to empower others to release themselves from pressure! Pressure of the self, of society, and to realise that we are already incredible, we have the power within us to change anything we wish and we can be content no matter what is going on around us.

We all know life is not a piece of cake but we make it so much harder for ourselves when we react negatively or uncontrollably overthink things. It pains me so much to see people constantly at war with themselves when looking inwards can make life so much simpler and easy to deal with. By sharing my ongoing discoveries towards becoming the person I want to be, I hope to spread this message.

The EP.

The ‘Warriors’ EP is a message of personal growth and one of empowerment. Its about really coming into ourselves and understanding our strengths, weaknesses, what we will and wont allow, and using that to make our lives exactly how we want. Basically becoming badass warriors in own own lives!

This EP involves an amalgamation of feelings I think we've all felt, and situations we've probably all experienced. Its a journey from frustration,  resentment and feeling lost to taking responsibility, and the great power found in only needing ourselves.

The Songs.

RESPECT is about looking back on a toxic relationship years later and seeing what exactly went wrong from both sides, and seeing it as a lesson to learn from rather than a wound that eats you up. (not to mention purging out the last bit of 'screw you' towards this person)

LOVE is about facing fears, and taking a leap although unsure, to move forward with a new relationship while staying aware of our unconscious patterns, how falling for someone can cause us to lose ourselves or imbalance us, but also bring us new experiences, new lessons and the beautiful feeling of love.

LEMONS is a song I wrote about someone close to me when I just wanted to shake them and say "WAKE UP! Smell the words coming out your mouth, yeah?" Its about how our words and our actions create our reality. Whether consciously or unconsciously we complain or we are grateful, we are positive or negative. Life is what you make it, don't you know?

WARRIORS is about understanding that our problems are not outside of us. There is nothing within our lives that we do not have control over. Instead of constantly searching for 'the one' person or 'the one' thing exterior to fix us, we need to look inside, because we are the only 'one' who can make a change - we are the warriors of our own lives.

What Next?

Our timeline involves independently releasing the EP in November with PR for one month from Wilful PR. The EP launch will be another self-produced show involving merging different forms of art. I will be organising a tour for early next year around UK and Europe to promote the 'Warriors' EP. 

If we go over our target, any extra money will go towards the PR and the EP launch for 'Warriors'.

Risks and challenges

This project involves session musicians, a couple of producers and a lot of studio equipment. Once I have hired these professionals, I am trusting them to do the best job they can.

I have chosen incredible musicians that I play with regularly. They know the parts and are more than capable of making the tracks sounds IMMENSE. I have picked a highly recommended studio with a great producer that I have used before and am certain can deliver great work.

£900 in the studio covers two days, so if for any reason an instrument breaks or the computer or studio system fails (very unlikely), we will have to rearrange the days of recording and the release of the EP will be delayed.

We plan to record in August, but I won't be booking the studio until this Kickstarter is over. It will be dependant on the availability of the studio and the producer whether we can stick to this timeline. This is also true with the music video which will depend on the availability of the videographer and the time of the release. If timescale goes to plan, the release will be in November, and we will film the video December/Early Jan.

As I am an unsigned artist, I have no financial backing and will be saving the money for PR myself, as well as applying for funding for the EP launch. Hiring PR and launching the EP are both dependant on this money. Unforeseen personal circumstances could prevent me from saving enough money for the PR, and rejection from applications could mean a delay of the EP launch resulting in the EP not being released in this timeframe.

However, I am working around the clock and am determined to make this happen on time!

Thank you so much for all your support.
