Baroque flower reborn in modern sun, acoustic to jazz, electrophonic one.

Hello Everyone, 

I hope that you liked portions of my song, Argyle, for voice and violin duet from the video above, featuring Zach Brock. I wrote it earlier this year while performing in Chicago after my favorite street there. This track will be specially featured in the full ensemble album that I wish to record. In 2010, I released an EP album, Dorian, primarily a bass and voice duo album with the hopes of making and producing a full ensemble album inclusive of: piano, bass, percussion, and string. With your help, I can complete my first full ensemble recording.

 A friend and talented painter, Jacob Cartwright, states that I am a "forward thinking vocalist of jazz influence." Mark Turner, Senior Contributor to All About Jazz Magazine, states, “With the poise of an opera diva and an ability to scat like Ella Fitzgerald, New York-based singer Danielle Freeman possesses a voice that commands attention with beauty and control on her debut, Dorian." (December 28, 2010). To classify my music, it is based on an opera-jazz theme, a culmination and expansion of both genres. My music is a unification of classical forms with harmonic, rhythmic and improvisational forms of experimental jazz and soul. 

You can help me to reach my goal to raise $8,000 dollars to go towards: studio recording time and fees, hiring of musicians, rehearsing, mixing, mastering, album cover art and manufacturing costs. Any amount that you would like to contribute to my project is so greatly appreciated. Sharing my Kickstarter campaign with others is also helpful. To the right side are donation options with rewards where transactions are processed through secured Amazon.com. I have a month to reach $8,000 dollars in donations! A month starting today! Yes! Then, I can head into the studio with my best and favorite musicians to record music!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I would like to start recording the album in January of 2013 after the 2012 holidays and 2013 New Year. As I would like to be fully rehearsed, polished and prepared before we all head into the studio, scheduling conflicts may postpone recording with the ensemble and Acoustic Studio's availability. This may push my release a month or two further into 2013 if I need to record in February versus January 2013.

In regards to my vocal health, I consider myself to be a practicing healthy vocalist and person. I am an avid fruit and vegetable juicer, garlic, vitamin, and echinacea consumer who exercises regularly, there are rare occasions when I do come down with a cold or flu by no fault of my own. A cold or a flu can affect a singer's full vocal abilities, where they would need to be well before singing again. This could pose a delay in recording. However, whenever I have a vital singing engagement, I often take extra precautions with my health and seek more physical and vocal rest to ensure that I have an optimal performance.
