My name is Sasha Daniel and I'm excited to announce that I’m recording my debut album!
Welcome and THANK YOU for taking the time to watch my video and read about this project.
It’s Happening: I’m recording an album and I’m absolutely THRILLED to share this process with you! Before jumping right in and telling you all about this project, I want to share a bit about my background and explain how I got to this point:
Seven years ago I moved to New York from Israel. What I wanted more than anything was to grow as an artist and a human being. The uncompromising, independent journey of making music has been the most exciting, invigorating, life changing experience of my life, and there are no words to describe how my dream of growth has exceeded all my expectations.
When I started writing songs in English four years ago, I had no idea I'd get this far. Through exploration and collaboration, I am proud to say that I’ve discovered my own voice, and I’d like to share it with you. Here is a taste of what I've done in the past few years:
All the songs on this upcoming album talk about heartfelt moments and realizations that I’ve experienced in the past few years. In order to capture those as truthfully as possible it’s important to record and share them now, while they are vivid in my mind’s eye.
On December 14th Dov Igel, Max Oleartchik, Mathias Kunzli and myself are going into a studio to spend three full days recording eight songs. A few days later I will fly to Los Angeles for a week to work 10 hour days with my childhood friend, Anna "Annalog" Feller, an incredibly talented musician and producer. Together we will record vocals, keyboards (and other cool sounds) which will bring the album to completion. In order to do all the above we need to raise $12,000. This money will go toward:
·Mixing and mastering
If we raise money BEYOND our goal we'll be able to pay for PR services, distribute the music to wider audience, create a new music video and finally, start funding our next tour! :)
There are a lot of great, unique gifts waiting for you! :) Check them out -------->
I can't thank you enough for reading this far :) With ALL my LOVE and GRATITUDE—let’s make an album!
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge we’ll face while making this album is completing it within the allotted time, without exceeding the budget.
At the moment, each step is carefully planned out but, with all creative ventures, there can be unexpected delays and setbacks. A lot people are involved with this project and all of us want to make something GREAT so we won't compromise the quality of the final result. The beauty of making something completely independently is that NOBODY can tell you how to do things or stifle your creativity. I will do everything in my power to stick to the plan but I also need to remain flexible when things are not going as we thought they would. Most importantly, to me, I want to enjoy the process of creating this album and live my life to the fullest. This means enjoying and embracing the surprises that come along.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
