Music is my dream and passion, and I push myself as far as I can go, both musically and personally... but without being able to fund a musical career, I have found myself almost at a stand still. I LOVE performing live, and an audience and their reactions will always be my favorite aspect of being a musician. To be where I want to be though, I need help.
I plan to record and release my first single as soon as possible. I have met with Redbooth Recording (redboothstudios.com) about producing my original song, and we have many ideas and A LOT of excitement. Meeting with the studio was a big step towards my professional goals. A nerve-racking step, but an exciting one nonetheless.
In addition to releasing my first ever single, I plan to work on my professional press kit and have promotional pictures taken, as well as order official Fiona Corinne merchandise (including t-shirts and stickers)! Most of the pictures associated with my musical career are from live performances, or are extremely outdated, so I desperately need to update. As for merchandise, I've never had anything with my name, logo or face on it other than fliers. I think merchandise, and t-shirts specifically, are an amazing way to grow and add to a fan base.
Any money raised beyond my goal will go immediately towards bringing you the best musical experience that I possibly can. That includes more studio time, adding to my press kit, enhancing live shows, creating more merchandise, and so much more.
Sidenote: I know that I write almost mechanically (and even in my video, I probably sound like I'm reading from a teleprompter)... I am an English teacher's daughter, and I don't know if I could force myself to talk any other way. That being said, everything I've said about my love and passion for music is true, it's not just some spiel. And outside of my musical career, I'm a real person that sometimes talks to much and loves hair dye and buys more nail polish than I could ever use. So please know that, my internet grammar aside, I am a 22 year old girl who loves to write and sing for anyone who will listen.

Risks and challenges
There are SO many obstacles that come with chasing a musical dream. Already, I've faced a lot of doors being closed in my face. Money was tight for me while growing up, and especially trying to pursue this crazy little dream of mine, it has never been easy. From equipment to traveling, to recording to merchandise, it's downright difficult to fund the career that I've always strived for. Despite these challenges, I have never stopped pushing, nor will I ever stop.
Time is a challenge, all on it's own. Finding the time to do anything, let alone write, perform and record, is almost impossible. I know that recording a single does not happen overnight. I am prepared to spend as many days, hours and weeks on this song as I have to (as well as shows, videos and updates to go along with it!).
No matter what life throws at me, I am more than ready to be the rockstar that I am and kick some ass. So my fingers are crossed for raising the money, and having the time... And I promise you, I will do anything in my power to be the musician you want to hear.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
