For the past year, I have been writing new songs, making demos and preparing to record my debut EP in January of 2019. I booked a recording studio, bought a plane ticket and was excited to be recording my very first EP in New York City, but in an unfortunate turn of events, I found out just days before my scheduled recording date that some of my crucial private funding had fallen through. 

Rather than cancel the recording and waste all of the hard work that my team and I had been doing for so many months, I’ve decided to turn to you, and ask for help. While we've been able to scrape together enough funds to get started on the recording process, there is still much work to be done and expenses to be covered before my music is ready for to be shared with you! 

Instead of signing to a record label, I have made the decision to release my debut EP independently. For those of you who may not know, many record labels strip artists of their creative control over what songs appear on the record, the style of the music, etc. It is very important to me that I create and release music that is true to who I am as an artist and musician! Because of this, I have created a Kickstarter campaign to hopefully raise a minimum of $25,000. All of the funds are crucial to helping me launch my career as a touring, independent artist and will go towards recording studio fees, studio engineer fees, mixing and mastering fees, promotion and marketing fees as well as tour support.

Every dollar counts, even if you only have $5 or $10 dollars to donate, anything you have to offer will help me get one step closer to releasing my debut EP! I will be deeply grateful for anything you have to give. I am so excited to share my new music with you!

Risks and challenges

My goal is to release my debut, five song EP in the summer of 2019 and go on tour shortly after the EP's release! Your contribution to this project will help me fund the whole recording process so I can share my new music with you! I can't wait for you guys to hear what I've been working on! Thank you all so much in advance for your love and support!
