Hi! I'm Catherine Elms, an unsigned dark cabaret singer-songwriter from Swansea, UK. This summer I've been recording my second studio EP, titled 'So Far From Whole', and I need your help to fund the final day in the studio!
The piano, vocals, and guitars have all been recorded - I just need 1 final studio session to complete the drum parts and then the 4-track EP is ready for mixing and mastering.
The entire EP has been self-funded - the studio time, promotional material, artwork, and photography have all been funded from my own money. I'm just shy of the last £200 to cover the final studio day, so if you can help me fund this last little piece of the project, we can make it happen. :)
This will be my first studio EP in 6 years, and I'm so excited to share it with everyone. You can check out my previous work at www.catherineelms.co.uk. The song in the video is 'Not Enough', the 4th track of the EP.
Please consider backing this campaign, and if you like it, share it with your friends. :)
UPDATE: thank you to everyone who helped me reach my target already! I've now set myself a stretch goal of £300. If I reach this new target, I will be able to organise a livestream gig exclusive to all backers! If successful, you will each receive an access code to a private online gig, taking place the week before the release on 23rd October (online gig date tbc). I'm £66 away from the stretch goal, and there's only 8 days to go so it's definitely achievable and I'd really look forward to doing it for everyone - please share this with your friends to help me get there.
Full disclaimer re profit: my goal is £220 which will fund the studio day in its entirety, after Paypal and Kickstarter fees are taken out. All additional funds made from this EP will be put towards recording my next project.
Risks and challenges
I've carefully planned 'So Far From Whole' with enough time between the studio date, the mixing process, the printing process, and the launch date. There's always a challenge in ensuring that everything gets done within the designated timeframe without too many delays or overrunning. That said, I've been super careful to put safeguards in, and I am 100% committed to making sure this EP is done and ready in time for the launch party in October!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
