BY PLEDGING, YOU CAN PRE-ORDER A CD or get other rewards!
Hi! My name is Elizabeth South and I need your help. I only have a few more days left in this campaign to reach my goal. If you are reading this right now, then I want you to know that I think you are truly awesome! I am so incredibly excited that I get the opportunity to record and release my second CD! I'm even more excited that you will get to help me with this project and be a part of a team! I need your help to raise $5,000 dollars for my music and videos projects before July 29th at 9:51 p.m. or I will lose all of the money already pledged so far. Also, please share this link with all your friends whom you think can also help!
What do I hope to accomplish?
I would love to be able to release my second album, which will be called, “Do It Afraid.” I have already recorded nine songs and need help with one more song that will be called "Don't Give Up (On Your Love)." I also need help with the CD duplication as well. I want to add a lyric book in the digipak this time. Another thing I am trying to do is to release a 3rd Music Video for the new song, “Don't Give Up (On Your Love),” off this album. This new song is going to be an upbeat really cool techno rock dance song and it has turned out so well that my video person (Ben Pearson who is filming the movie "Blue Like Jazz") is excited to film this song. In addition, he has agreed to do another beautiful and simpler video with lead singer from White Heart, Rick Florian, for the song, "Do It Afraid."
The new "Do It Afraid" album will include songs that I have either written by myself, or co-written with producer/songwriter Billy Smiley (White Heart) and one song with George Cocchini (DC Talk). Once I am done recording and mastering the album here in Nashville TN this summer, it will be released and I will have physical digipak copies for sale. It should be released no later than by the Fall of this year IF I can raise the money I need. I hope that with this album, I will gain lots of amazing fans (like you!) and share a message dear to my heart that will hopefully encourage you as much as it has me in my own journey.
What is the money specifically for?
There are so many costs that go into recording an Album and filming Music Videos. In fact, a lot of major labels spend tens of thousands of dollars, if not more, on their artists' CD's and Videos. Here are some of the costs that your money will help cover: Production -Recording engineer -Studio space -Musicians -Mixing -Mastering -Album artwork -CD replication, packaging and shipping, Music Video camera work, Director and editor fees, make-up person, clothing, filming, editing, and hiring Rick Florian for the video.
How does this Kickstarter thing work?
Over to the right side of this page, you can see a list of different prizes, for different amounts of pledges. Once you decide on which pledge amount you would like to give, you click on the green button in the upper right-hand corner that says, "Back this Project," and it will walk you through the steps.
Remember that this is an ALL or NOTHING fundraiser. So, if I am just one dollar short of $5,000 by the deadline, then your pledge doesn't go through and you get all your money back, and I don't get any of the money to help me with my projects... AND you won't get any of the cool rewards. Although the final amount can not be under the goal amount by the deadline, it can definitely go over!!! And, I'm only pledging the lowest amount that would be helpful to me, but I really need a whole lot more! So . . . . if you all give above and beyond, all the extra money will still go into the Album and Video and will help me even more!!! You can even give as low as $1. It all counts! So please keep giving over the amount even if I reach my pledge if you can or want to!
I really hope that you'll become a part of this project. I feel incredibly honored to even have such a great opportunity to work with people willing to support my music and all the wonderful producers, engineers, musicians, and video people. YOU are what makes all this happen!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I am SO grateful to those who have already given!
Love and God bless you,
Please note that all the details of the rewards will be communicated with you individually at the end of the campaign if my goal is met.
