About

Hello!

My name is Allie and I play the ukulele! I like to sing & write & play the ukulele. With your help, I will be recording my first EP on an eco-friendly, handmade ukulele!

With a lot of hard work, love & ukulele I will be able to create my small space in the music world!

I plan on using your pledges towards: studio costs, mixing & mastering, travel expense & actual printing costs.  

I will be doing all marketing & graphics myself, partnering together with a local photographer & my talented sister will be providing original artwork for the album!  & Throughout the entire process I will sourceeco-friendly & local businesses, of course!

I'm able to keep recording costs fairly low, staying local, but one important aspect of my campaign is a new, eco-friendly ukulele. In order to keep furthering my musical career it is essential that I upgrade to an instrument that will resonate proper sound quality.  Being a true supporter of all things local & sustainable, I found a ukulele maker less than 20 miles from my home! Ukuleles were originally made of koa wood, native to Hawaii, however, I am choosing a ukulele that will be handmade of myrtle wood, which is native to the Pacific NW, where I live. :)

Quick recap....

Your pledge $ will be spent on....

-Studio time 

-Mastering

-CD printing 

-Promotion

-Handmade ukulele with eco-friendly materials!

....Did you know..it actually takes 5-10 hours to record 1 song? Add studio time, then a good chunk of $ for making it all good smoooothly together & printing onto the final product..At my goal of $2,200 I'm still taking a bite myself & able to make a great sounding EP for everyone to enjoy!

But, when will I actually get the EP, you ask??

Have no fear! I am in the works with several, talented musicians & producers getting everything lined up! You will stay updated during recording & producing, planning on printing & being ready for your listening pleasures, by this September! 

With even a $1, you can help support my goal to record my 1st EP on an eco-friendly, handmade ukulele!
