BASICS

My name is Savannah Wheeler.  My music project is called Annie's Dream.  Your support will help me make my first 5 song EP, "Into the Ground".  This album consists of 5 Americana/Folk songs about heartbreak.  Writing these songs helped me through many painful nights.  After 6 years of writing, I have finally gotten up the courage to share my original music with the world, and I couldn't be more excited.  

GOAL

My goal is to raise $6,000 to record, mix, and master these tunes.  Through this album, I want to empower others to pursue their dreams, let go of their fear, and make their art!  As my good friend, peer, and teacher, Claire McKeown, tells me, "The world can never have enough music".  

ANNIE'S DREAM

Annie is my alter-ego.  She embraces her emotions.  She feels it, she shows it, she shares it, she let's it fuel beautiful music and soul-bearing lyrics.  Please help me to share these songs with the world.  YOU are the main ingredient in making this project successful. Thank you for your support!  

KICKSTARTER / WHAT I'll DO WITH YOUR SUPPORT

Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing platform.  If we reach the $6,000 goal, I receive the funds and I get to go into the studio in June 2015 and make my dream become reality.  If we don't reach the $6,000 goal, I don't receive any of the funds.  If by some chance we go over the $6,000 goal, the extra money will go towards adding more instrumentation, like string quartets and horns, and towards distribution and promotion.

Risks and challenges

After this music is recorded, I will personally be working on distribution and promotion. I plan to release the EP December 2015. If any obstacle occurs, I will be upfront with my Kickstarter backers and keep you updated on the process. No matter what, I will do everything in my power to finish the project quickly and thoroughly.
