Let's Make an Album Together!!!

Hello Family, Friends and Fans!

Welcome to my kickstarter page! You are probably here because you heard that I am trying to fund my second album. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and read about my project!

Who I am

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Ashley Alexander, and I was born and raised in Manchester, NH. I have been singing and performing since I was a little girl. I fell in love with music at a very young age listening to artists like Reba McEntire and watching movies like the Wizard of Oz. My Mom always said I used to act out all of the scenes and sing every song. But come on, who doesn't love the Wizard of Oz? When I got a little older I saw Reba McEntire perform at the Wisconsin State Fair and it was all over. I knew I wanted to perform on stage just like her. All of a sudden I was collecting Reba CD's and listening to country music all the time. Soon I started taking singing lessons every week and performing in talent shows and plays, basically singing anywhere I could just so I could be on stage and entertain. In high school my sister and I sang together as a pop vocal duo and performed all over the country opening up for other artists and playing radio shows. We even earned a Los Angeles Music Award at the ages of 16 and 17. Having those opportunities made me realize that I wanted to pursue a music career. It is my passion. It is who I am.

My Journey

After high school I left New Hampshire and headed down to Boston to go to Berklee College of Music. In college I met amazing mentors and friends, all who helped me to become a better singer, songwriter, and most importantly a better person. After studying all styles of music I came back full circle to country music. During my last year I got a great opportunity to go to Nasvhille and record what became my first Album, Heaven on Earth.

When I released the album and started promoting it, I got to open up for Willie Nelson, Luke Bryan and Chuck Wicks. I even had the chance to perform the National Anthem at a NASCAR Nationwide Series race in my home state of New Hampshire! Just scratching the surface of catching that dream of the BIG STAGE. Now I’m here, in Los Angeles still trying, still pursuing. And I’m motivated to make a second album hoping it will take me one step closer to that big stage.

Making a second album

Since I moved to Los Angeles I've been lucky to play music with an AMAZING band, and they will be recording with me on this next release which is really exciting! This next album is a personal album. The hardships and triumphs that I've experienced...that we all experience as people pursuing dreams. That’s what this album will be about. I always write about personal experiences, things that resonate close to the heart. That’s what this journey is and I want you to share it with me. I want you to be a part of this dream. This album will be as much yours as it is mine and my band members. Music is a collaboration. So let's collaborate and make an amazing album!

Where the money will go

The money we raise will go to recording in the studio, mixing, mastering, art design, and packaging. In return, when you pledge you will be pre-ordering the album and receive it BEFORE it has been released to the public. You will also have the chance to receive special EXCLUSIVES on different pledge packages that I have made special for you! Some of these exclusives include your name in the credits, house concerts, handwritten lyric books, and a chance to NAME the album! In addition, I will be updating you with PLEDGER-ONLY behind the scene access through the whole process! You will be my record label!

If we don't reach $10,000 dollars by the end of these 60 days we don't get to keep any of the money. That means no credit cards will be charged, no rewards get sent out, and no album. Even if we reach $9999.99. So please spread the word around about this project to everyone you know! Every little bit counts!

Thank you!

This is going to be an exciting journey and I am looking forward to sharing it with you. Let’s see where this road takes us! LET'S MAKE AN ALBUM TOGETHER! :)

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read all of this. I wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for you believing in me and my music. This album will be for YOU! And I promise I'll make you proud!

***BIG THANKS to my dear friend Dave Fein for filming and editing my kickstarter video for me! I am so grateful to you & lucky to have such wonderful friends like you in my life that are supportive and want to help me reach my dream! :)

With SO MUCH LOVE and THANKS,

Ashley
