Greetings + Salutations! I'm Rashida Clendening aka Audio Angel. Super stoked to share this project with you - I'm creating/completing my studio Debut Release featuring my newest music project Ex-Pyramids.
Many of you know, I've been singing and performing in the SF/BAY AREA for 15 years and in that time, mannnnnnny of you have encouragingly asked, "When are you going to make your OWN album?" Whelp, THE TIME HAS COME! Ex-Pyramids is me + my producer/drummer/best friend Mike Reed (Sol Americano, The Telephones, Daly City Records). We use live instrumentation, sampling and programming to span electronic music genres. We like booty bass, gospel, video game noises and kittens. Can you hear it?
HOW YOUR PLEDGE CAN HELP: At the end of May, I'll be hiring Miles DeIaco of the amazing Different Fur Studios to co-produce, record, engineer, mix and master our album. Producing a physical CD for sale to be completed by end of June. Additional funding will also go towards compensating additional musicians and the video for the album's first single. Further funding would be toward a mini-tour of the East Coast in Fall or Winter.
You might notice that this all appears to be happening rather quickly! I’ve always been one who works great with deadlines and I let this upcoming performance opportunity be my inspiration – From 6/30 to 7/4 I’ll be the artist-at-large (performing with any + everbody!) at The High Sierra Music Festival! It’s going to be an awesome way to share my music with many new friends! Please comment if you'll be there!
So as of today (4/20), we have our studio time all booked and are working in our home studios to be ready to for the end of May! So please contribute and spread the word if you like and be prepared to receive in return our ridiculous gratitude, infectious inspiration and of course our music w/ some delicious REWARDS!
Lots of love + harmony always - Rashida, your Audio Angel
