Hello!

My name is Sarah Miles. If you don’t know me, I am a NYC indie singer/songwriter. For those of you who do know me and my music… well, yay!  I am thrilled that you have taken the time to come check out my kickstarter campaign.

This past year, I wrote a song a week.  A few of these songs started emerging as true stand-outs in my repertoire.  I just had this feeling that they were really worth sharing, so I started playing them in live shows.  I shared them at a New York Songwriter’s Circle showcase at The Bitter End and on college campuses across the country, and the response was so wonderful and gratifying!   So, here I am now, feeling the need to get back into the recording studio again so that I can get these tunes out into the world.  I carefully hand-picked what I think are 5 great tracks for this EP and I am so SO excited about it!  

Here is the tough part; the cost of making a record adds up pretty darn quickly, and in order to make this album the best it can be, I need your money to help finish it up and make it AWESOME. If you are willing to become a part of this campaign, you will hear previews of the tracks as well as blog updates and other special surprises that you won’t find on facebook or anywhere else. It’s just stuff for you only!  You will be a part of the record making process.  Here’s how it’s gonna go down…

If I can make it to my $10,000 goal… I will be able to pay the musicians on the record, pay my producer, mix and master the album, create CD design, and of course manufacture the album as a real physical disc that you can hold!  If I don’t make it to $10,000 you get your money back and the project gets put on the back burner.

If I am lucky enough to go over my goal, that money will help me pay for the cost of promoting the album including radio airplay, and other PR. And more importantly, I will be able to make some new Sarah Miles t-shirts :)

I don’t have a financial backer or a record label providing me with money on this project. Whatever you can give, even if it’s one dollar, I will be so grateful!

I can’t thank you guys enough for all of your love and support. I wouldn’t be able to do what I truly love without you!!!

xoxo Sarah

Risks and challenges

With any creative project, set backs should be expected. But I will not let them keep me down!

There are a lot of risks involved in making a record. There is a TON of work that goes into it, and many people are involved. One of the biggest challenges for me specifically is that there are so many things to worry about in terms of promoting it, playing shows, and just basically getting enough people to hear it.

Thankfully, I am lucky to be working with wonderfully talented people that make it easier to focus on the music. I feel confident in moving forward with this Kickstarter campaign. It’s great to be able to connect with fans while I go through the process of creating my EP. I am so happy to have everyone with me for the ride.

In the unlikelihood of any delays, I will of course keep everyone posted and let them know what is going on!
