Ok, ok…I know what this looks like. I’m just another girl with a guitar singing songs about love, life and self-discovery. But don’t be fooled...I've got new songs and they are busting out of the seams to be recorded so that others can hear. And my hope is that the music I make will reach someone, will connect with someone, and will possibly even uplift someone. That's what makes it all worth it.
As of right now, I have exactly one month before I go into the studio. The dates are set to go finish my second full-length album at the end of June. I'm so excited about this one because it's been a few years since I released my debut album (2007) and I have a lot of new songs I want to share. I've also developed a better sense of what I feel is my authentic sound. This album will be simple and beautiful and I can hardly wait to finish it. I've also started playing with a cellist, Naomi Steckman, who is going to accompany me- so be excited because she is an amazing cellist.
Getting back to the project...the money that is awarded through my kickstarter campaign is going to go toward finishing this album. Then the money that is raised beyond the set goal will go toward touring expenses. After the album is finished, I'll be touring to release and promote the new album, so any extra money that is raised will be very helpful.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you'd like to hear a sample of what the album will sound like, go to biancamerkley.com for a free download of a song entitled, "I Never Knew." Thanks again!
Good question. To be more specific, here's how I have figured it out:
1. Recoding costs in the studio = $1500
2. Mixing and mastering costs = $1000
3. Printing physical copies of CD's = $500
That would be fabulous!! If by chance I raise more money, then that will really help as well since I've got tour dates I'm setting up in Utah, Idaho and Virginia as of right now. So since that all costs a pretty penny just in traveling costs alone, anything extra over the $3000 will also be put to good use in helping me go on tour- so I can make it to you live if you happen to not live in NYC.
