Hi!
My name's Fern,
and I'm a singer/songwriter from Suffolk in England.

Music's always been a huge part of my life, and after releasing 2 EP’s and playing over 350 gigs, I really feel like I’m ready to make my first album!
 I've launched this kickstarter campaign in the hope that some of you lovely people out there will decide to help me out in return for some limited edition rewards!

I’ve managed to save just enough money to record the album, but need your help for all the essential extras. This includes the costs of mastering, producing, packaging & printing, as well as getting all of your rewards made and posted to you! Here’s a break down of where all the money I’m asking for will go:

I decided to use Kickstarter because of it's rewards system, and have really tried to offer as many different rewards as possible at lots of varied prices. I know what it's like to be limited on cash, and want to make sure that everyone who wants to help me out is able to. If you want to be an extra big help, I'd be incredibly grateful if you would share my campaign with all your friends, and anyone else who you think might be interested in helping me with my music!


I'm recording my album with David Booth at The Recording Booth, and have really enjoyed every second so far! I wanted to film clips of the recording process to remember it by, and thought it would also be a good opportunity to show people a 'behind the scenes' look at making an album. I'm filming whenever I can and uploading new clips to my facebook page every week. I'll be updating everyone on how this Kickstarter campaign is doing too! If you'd like to check them out click here: www.facebook.com/fernteathermusic (If you wanted to give my page a quick 'like' too that would be lovely)!

I really hope you decide to pledge to my campaign, and help me make this album the best that it can be :)

Thank you so much,
 Fern Xx

(Special thanks to Yellow Hill Media for filming my campaign video)

Risks and challenges

I'm aiming to get this album out in October 2015, and while this seems very achievable at the moment, there could always be unforeseen setbacks.
So far everything is running smoothly! I've done 3 days in the recording studio, and have everything lined up and ready to go :)

The most likely set back is that the rewards will take longer than expected to deliver, but I'll keep you updated about any sort of delay, and try very hard to get everything to you on time!
