THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR LOVE & SUPPORT. . . 

This album was inspired by my Mom who passed away from cancer in January of 2013 and to legendary music producer Phil Ramone who also passed recently. She inspired me to never give up and he was my mentor and friend who guided me to write this album.

With my music, I hope to inspire people who are facing challenges in their life. I've used music to heal and hope that this project in return will help others and if I'm able to inspire someone to face adversity and grow, then I'll feel happy & successful. 

Proceeds of album sales will be given to a cancer organization to aid in the help of cancer research.

Shadow. (Nominated as "Best Music Video" 2009 at the Hollywood Film Festival. Directed & produced by Bryan William Robbins)

The album will be full length and will have at least 10 songs on it. The $14,000 is the minimum for this album which would pay for:

musicians/ production/studio/producer for 10-14 songs

mastering 

art work 

physical cds 

music video 

I am hoping, with the help of everyone, we might be able to go over funding which will allow me to do a mini tour. 

To make this release exciting - will be releasing digital singles to you EXCLUSIVELY before they're officially released. After you receive the chosen singles from the album you will receive the full length album.

There are no words to express how THANKFUL & APPRECIATIVE  I am for your support with this new album. Your support means the world.

Stretch Goals!

If we reach the following stretch goals - you will receive the following:

$16,000 each backer will receive a phone singing telegram. I will call anyone you wish for any special occasion and sing them a song of your choice and tell them you love them

$17,000 mini tour on the west & east coast and all backers will receive free tickets to one performance of their choice

Momma music video dedicated to my Mom. 

Thank you very much for viewing my project. I'd be honored if you join me on this musical journey. 

 BIO:

Franki Love is an award-winning singer/songwriter/pianist. A classically trained pianist, she grew up playing the piano at age four. Love started her career by performing at local coffee shops in Los Angeles and then winning the attention of many notable producers and musicians. She garnered success at the L.A. Music Awards as "Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year" and winning single of the year for her song "Shadow". Her song "Shadow" also was recognized by the "Billboard International Song" contest. The music video "Shadow" was on the Grammy ballot 2011 for "Best Music Video" and was also nominated as Best Music Video at The Hollywood Film Festival. Love's song "Love Like It's Never Gonna Hurt" won "best song" from Songwriter Universe and she has also won awards from ASCAP. Besides her solo artist career she also composes and performs music for TV, movies, and video games, such as singing the English-language opening and ending songs used in Media.Vision's role-playing game Wild ARMs 4, being the voice in "E" entertainment and "Monster" and many other commercials. She has been involved in composing music for projects with Tony Kaye, director of American History X. Franki's self-titled debut album was released independently in 2007. Franki successfully funded her sophomore album "Now Is The Time" in 2011 through Kickstarter and recorded her first 2 singles of her album with producer Warren Huart (The Fray). She has performed internationally at "The Castle of Chambord" and at "Cannes Film Festival" 2012 in France. In her spare time Franki donates her time and efforts to Soldiers' Angels, a non-profit organization providing aid and comfort to soldiers.

Risks and challenges

This is my second full length album (have released 1 full length album & 2 EP albums, so it's my fourth official album release). Having the experience of releasing albums before I feel confident that things will go very smoothly. The biggest concern I think we'd run into is going over time in the studio, however, that is not a huge risk.
