Stuck in The Fifties
Stuck in The Fifties
Stuck in The Fifties is a series of songs I have written and intend to produce as a submission for publishers. The songs explore a young woman's move to the capital, aged 18 - 22. Predictably, love features in some songs, but others also explore feminism, migration and personal growth. The fund aims to raise £1,000 to record the songs themselves; studio hiring times; instruments; credits; collaborations to create melodies, and any other miscellaneous costs that naturally arise with the project. At their crux, the songs explore identity, and I'm aiming for an eighties vibe with a strong, cohesive sonic sound throughout the whole repertoire of songs - just to give it that pop melody we hear in the charts. I'm a young professional working in London and find funding be pretty hard to come by, so gaining this amount will really help me to take my songwriting to the next stage and hopefully, to publishers.
And don't worry: I'm fully transparent - every time a cost arises, I'll post receipts both on your notifications and my page, alongside a description of the running success of the Kickstart fund. For example, if my funding reaches £850. Say a studio hire costs £400 for the day, I will deduct £400 from £850 to show a net of £450 so you can see what remains of the funding. There will be a real sense of community throughout my growing online presence, especially after I expand to Soundcloud and Spotify. There will also be chances to share forums with each other on platforms, giving you, my funders, inside opportunities to request tailored content, melodies and lyrics.

Risks and challenges
Challenges that face this funding are concerned predominantly with timing. I have written twelve songs, but require the resources to record them in high resolution. If I can raise enough £1,000 in this forty day period then this should resolve this project's main challenge, more may need to be requested. However, if this is the case, I will maintain full transparency with costs and fees in the forums - for both standard and exclusive access.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
