About this project

Dear potential supporter, 

Unfortunately, being on a television show doesn't come with all the perks that we as a society associate it with. It's like a revolving door... it'll pick you up and slam you right back down to the ground. 

My only true passion in life is music and my one goal is to be able to have my music recorded and accessible to those around me because I want to be able to touch people. I want people to hear my music and just feel like they know someone else out there gets how they feel and that they are NOT alone.

I wish that being on TV would've enabled me to have to tools and means to create an album without having to ask for help (due to my independent nature). However, what I love about Kickstarter is it makes it possible for people like myself, people with such a strong passion to fulfill their dreams, to reach out to those who believe in them to help make it a reality.

I don't think people realize how much goes into an album, all the costs, time, stress... But costs are the one thing holding me back right now, everything else.. I've got.

It's crazy to think that not only are the recording fees, but there is so so much more that goes into: traveling&board, recording, instrumentalists, videography, photography for graphics for the album, mixing/mastering, duplication, distribution, a publicist to get everything out there and SO MUCH MORE.

To be quite honest, it makes me sick to my stomach thinking of all the things that need to be paid for just to make this album. But regardless of if this album were to end up a total failure, MY DREAM is to at the very least be able to see my thoughts, my melodies, lyrics, compositions come to life and reach those who do appreciate my artistry.

I am truly so thankful for any and ALL help given to this project and I'd like to say thank you in advance for believing in me and making this dream of mine a reality.

Love you all, 
Jillian <3

Risks and challenges

My only true worry is that I get desperately sick and have to postpone the recording, however, in which case I would simply reschedule studio time.
