LET’S GET STARTED!
Welcome from a GIRL NAMED JAKE! I’m excited to crowdfund “IGNITION”, my debut studio album. Anyone who’s ever met me (or will in the future… Yaaay!!) has experienced my passion for interacting with people on a personal level. It’s my thing.
Thanks to Kickstarter, I have the opportunity to create something BIG while still maintaining the intimacy with fans that I love!
WHO IS A GIRL NAMED JAKE AND WHY THIS CAMPAIGN?
Once upon a Time. . . There was starry-eyed child with uncontainable energy, optimism and a dream to Educate, Entertain and Inspire!
The one constant throughout my rather unconventional life, is my passionate love for music and using it as a way to really help and connect with people. I’ve always imagined the kind of life I wanted to live, inspiring and helping people on an international scale. I once believed Medicine and Doctors Without Borders was my path. Now, I know performing and this album are where I truly begin the quest.
The amazing producers who approached me about recording with them last year, created the opportunity for me to start taking action. Now I'm ready to ignite my future with a great team and amazing fans!
For the curious, at the top right corner of this page, click on "See Full Bio" for my colorful journey to becoming a GIRL NAMED JAKE. It's essentially my search for the courage to risk becoming a professional entertainer!
ABOUT THE ALBUM
I’m humbled by the major pro behind me on this project, with experience working alongside Chicago AND Bon Jovi. We met while I was performing as a guest entertainer on cruise ships in 2015. My producer is going to help bring a truly world-class album to life. Your financial generosity will pay for musicians, arrangers, studio recording, production, marketing, and everything else! I literally cannot do this album without you!!
The content of IGNITION will be a blend of songs composed by yours truly, a few powerful originals written by other very talented people and covers of great tunes from across the Ages. All of course with the infusion of my unique flavor and soulful expression!
Side Note: I’m currently working through the approval process to donate a percentage of every album sold to a children’s charity. I’m super excited to keep the promise I made to my beautiful friend Denise Khan, who died of breast cancer in 2012. It was her wish for people to contribute to children in hospital care to honor her memory - here’s me working to do that!
Thanks to friends and fans from around the planet for teaching me that my unique voice, untamable spirit, unconventional life adventure, and my ‘Jake’ness, deserve to be finally showcased and celebrated!
I appreciate you. You are amazing!!
Risks and challenges
This album WILL happen or your money back!! ☺
Kickstarter is all-or-nothing and costs you zero unless we reach our $25,000 goal, so let's do it! I'm REALLY excited to be able to send you your rewards but need to hit target in order to do so!
Though there is always a risk of delays and unexpected detours in any process, we are working hard to ensure all of the pledge rewards can be delivered on time.
All funds raised over and above our goal will be targeted towards better quality everything, as well as for potential marketing, video and touring opportunities!
I promise vulnerable authenticity in keeping everyone informed and updated as the journey to "IGNITION!" unfolds.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
