HELLO, FRIENDS, FAMILY, and FANS!!!

Thank you so much for visiting my KICKSTARTER Campaign. Here we go....

I am Irene Diaz... an independent singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, CA. I have been playing and writing music since I was 15 years old. At the age of 23 I started taking songwriting more seriously and haven't looked back. 

My music has been influenced by a wide range of artists including Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Fiona Apple, Nina Simone... but most importantly by the love that I experience in my own life. I am here to bring you a soulful sound that comes from the heart hoping that you too will experience the power of love behind these songs. I've been doing everything on my own without the help of any label, and trust me it hasn't been easy, but I've met great people along the way, people who have believed in what I've been trying to do, and for them I am truly grateful. 

THE PROJECT: I LOVE YOU MADLY EP

'I Love You Madly' will be my first studio EP, recorded at Alcove Studios in North Hollywood, Ca. It will be a 5 track EP all self-produced alongside Dave Pearson and Carolyn Cardoza. We will be recording I Love You Madly, Crazy Love, I Am Woman, Tricky Game, and My Sweetest Sin. 

The recording process has taken many turns in various directions. Most of my songs as you know are minimal, but since taking the role as head producer and working with a great team of people, they all seem to have evolved into a beautiful sound.

With the help of your pledge, this project will go a long way. 
Your contribution will go towards: Recording, Mastering, Packaging, Artwork, Merchandise, a Music Video, and anything left over will go towards touring.

PLEASE & THANK YOU!!!

Watch the video, share, and donate. Any amount will help, $5, $25, $100, $1000. It all adds up. Your contribution will not go unnoticed, along with the rewards given, you will also receive my never-ending gratitude for being a part of this project. Please join me on my journey as an independent artist as this won't be possible without your help. 

Yours Truly,

Irene Diaz

Risks and challenges

The challenge is raising enough money to help with the expenses that go into making an EP. If we don't make the $8,000, we don't get anything. If this occurs it means the project will be delayed and I will probably first cry my heart out, recoup, then continue doing my music. :)
