Ericka Corban NEW Solo Album

Dear friends- Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to read this. As most of you know I was recently on Season 12 of The Voice, for a minute. ;) When I first knocked on that door I thought it would determine whether or not my music was meant for more than just friends and family. I didn’t know what to expect going into it but I learned that reality TV is not what it seems. I was not able to pick my blind audition song and as much as the show is about "the voice," it's just as much about the song. It's not a song I would have picked as it did not represent my vocal ability or style as well as I would have liked.

I’ve battled through a myriad of emotions since that experience and even planned to just give up on my dreams. But I’ve learned a great deal since then and realized that anyone who has ever accomplished anything worthwhile in this life has failed a number of times. It’s the courage to get up and continue that makes all the difference.  

     If you’re reading this, then I’m here today still dreaming, because of you. Your love and support has encouraged my heart and inspired me to keep going. It’s been over 6 years since I’ve done a project like this…(we’ve had a few more babies, life, crazy, etc.) These new songs are straight from my heart and I would love for you to be an integral part in making them come to life.


Where the Funding will go:

We plan to use your pledges to pay for recording, mastering, printing and (hopefully) marketing the new album. Since we are our own label, we aren’t receiving any backing from music corporations. Specifically, we’ll be using the proceeds to:  

• Fulfill Kickstarter rewards  • Compensate our co-producer, engineer, and musicians.
• Rent studio time and equipment to track the drums, (everything else will be done in our home studio.)
• Mixing & Mastering
 • Printing physical copies of the CD
• Anything extra (God willing) will go toward marketing/publicity and touring activities so we can see more of you on the road. 


What you get out of it:

First and (I hope) foremost, you’ll get the satisfaction of helping an independent artist.  

Second, you’ll be using your voice and your wallet to tell music corporations that you are a valid audience that deserves a say in the music being made. (That’s why Indie Music exists.)

Third, you’ll get exclusive (kickstarter backer only) swag: Autographed CDs, T-shirts, Hoodies, early downloads, unreleased song download, tickets to my cd release party, invitation to pizza packing party, house concerts, and more... AND knowing in your heart that you made this project come to life.

Next Step 

I can’t do this without your help. I am so honored that you would even consider taking this journey with me.

Please share our campaign on your social media pages. Your donation and participation makes you a part of the story just as much as we are.

 I am so grateful for and humbled by your support.

 -Ericka 

Risks and challenges

We have written all the songs and have begun the recording process, but will need some time as we meet with the other musicians and work on the final production of the individual songs, and the album as a whole.
