EMME PACKER SAYS:

LOOKS LIKE WE'VE REACHED OUR FIRST GOAL. BUT LET'S REACH OUR 2ND!!! $5000 TO GET STARTED ON A NEW RECORD

Speaking of the NEW RECORD

I set the 'funding goal' low here because if we didn't reach it, we wouldn't get any of it. But we are looking forward to reaching higher than our goal so that we can get in the studio and release something new, different, and fresh for the fans.

 $1,500 gets us the new song and the release of the music video. But if we reach $5,000- that will get us an E.P. to release digitally. If we reach $10,000- we are able to release a new full length album. Anything above that will just put us further to getting it printed on VINYL and CD, getting me out on the road, and get the promotion it needs to be successful!

You ask, Why does it cost that much? Well let me tell you! As an artist, we have to pay an hourly fee in the studio...then a fee to the musicians that play on the record. And a fee for a producer, and an engineer. We spend countless days, weeks and months in the recording studio, getting it just as always dreamed... AND THEN!!! ..... we spend more countless days and weeks mixing the songs, getting them mastered, then promoted, marketed, and printed.. the LIST GOES ON!

That is why I need YOUR help.

I hope that you find something fun here worth pledging some money to this cause! I love you and thank you for this kindness, support and generosity! 

Emme.

You can find previous records on iTunes, Amazon, and CDbaby.

    RARE SONGS: I've decided to add this reward due to suggestions from a few fans. I will record 5 rare songs of mine on Garageband and burn them to a disc for you. These are songs that will never go on a record....songs that I wrote and don't have a home amongst others as a project. Because I never play them live anymore, I will need to re-learn them to record them for you! If you attend live shows frequently, you can probably pick your favorites and let me know!
