Music saved my life. It sounds dramatic, but its true. In my darkest hours, songs have held me and helped me, reaching into my world and reminding me I am not alone. Music gives me the spark I need to keep going. In honor of this journey, I'm making an album of songs I've written that share the theme of darkness and light. (plus lots of songs about women and nature- the finer sides of life!)

 Because music has such a profound impact on me personally, I put a high value on the writing, recording, and sharing of music. I'm honored that I get to serve the world in this way, and I aim to do it right. Since I quit my career in social work in 2011, I've written hundreds of songs and toured the country playing them (#folksinger.) I've also cleaned over 1,000 houses to make ends meet. Its a good life, but it isn't always a good living- especially for the songwriter who's just starting out. 

With your support, I'm excited to share my first album with the world. 

 Thank you for joining Team Daisy! 

Risks and challenges

As an independent artist self-publishing my first album, the biggest challenge I foresee is publicity and promotion: getting the music out there.

Once my goal is reached, I will be able to finish "Lightchasers" and share it with you. I hope to have all rewards fulfilled no later than spring of 2017. I'm currently on track to have the album to you this fall!

If my kickstarter exceeds the initial goal of 15k, I will be able to look into proper promotion, including: PR, radio promotion, licensing, and making an amazing music video. The sky is the limit, budget wise, and I will do the best I can with what I have.

Thanks for your support! Go Team Daisy!

    **SASS REWARD**

    Daisy's Guitar + House Show!

    I'll come play ya a show and leave you with a guitar! (I can also ship it if you want her sooner!)

    You can be the proud owner of Daisy's late 80s vintage Carvin electric guitar "Pepto." She's pink and has a perfect body- one solid piece of wood and amazing tone. She's been all around the country with Daisy since she bought her at age 15 with her 4-H money. Daisy played her first band gig on this guitar at age 16!

    Carvins like Pepto currently go for $650-$850, but Pepto needs a repair to be gig worthy (broken string peg- $200 repair to get her ready to rock & back to street value.) Sold as-is, OR I can have her repaired for an ex. Shipping included.

    Bonus: I'll sign my lil autograph on the geetar, if you want me to!
