Thank you for checking out this Kickstarter page, watching the video, and reading about this project! I have wanted to put together an album of my music for a long time, and with your involvement in this project, it can finally happen!

"Abby Lyons," the debut album, consists of all original songs by Abby Lyons, and features the talents of many musicians, including:

  • Abby Lyons: Piano, Vocals, Ukulele
  • JP Yepez: Guitar, Ukulele, Sound Engineer
  • Michael Ohlinger: Drumset, Tabla, Glockenspiel
  • Yvette Holzwarth: Violin, Vocals
  • Rachel Iba: Violin, Vocals
  • Henry Webster: Violin  
  • Sara Cubarsi: Violin
  • Elsa Lund: Vocals
  • Louis Coy: Vocals, Clarinet
  • Linnea Sablosky: Vocals, Ukulele
  • Luigi Polcari: Cello
  • David Mason: Cello
  • Madison Chase: Cello
  • Nicole Ying: Celeste
  • Sarah Rice: Harp
  • Giancarlo Arzu: Electric Bass  
  • Hannah Dexter: Acoustic Bass

Phew, that's a lot of people! All of these musicians generously volunteered their time and talents for this record, occasionally being paid with guacamole and banana muffins (but not those two things together!).

The album has already been fully recorded at the Dizzy Gillespie Digital Recording Studio at CalArts. All that is needed now is to pay for mixing, mastering, and album production.

This is where you come in!

We only have 30 days to raise $2,500. If the money is not raised by the deadline, it will be returned to you. Check out the cool rewards on the side, because you might find something you really want (like awesome new music!!)!

Sometimes art requires patronage to exist. Sadly, I will not have the funds to complete this project without your help. Please help make this project a reality!!

 Thank you so much for your support! You are going to love this music!
