At only 13 years old, Jazmin Van Lelyveld-Gifford has been singing since age 3. With music running in her family and vibrantly through her community in Port Townsend, WA, Jazmin's passions have been nurtured and explored devotedly since early childhood.

Singing, playing piano, writing songs and dancing are huge parts of her world. She devotes countless hours to rehearsal, writing and performances, all with a commitment far beyond her young years. Jazmin's mother, Oceanna Van Lelyveld, is dedicated to supporting Jazmin's aspirations, and is running the Kickstarter campaign.

Now it's time to take the next step!

Jazmin will be working in Los AngelesCalifornia with producer/songwriter Brett Pemberton, accompanied by her mother, Oceanna. Brett has collaborated with multimillion selling songwriter Mark Mangold (Cher, Jordan Sparks, etc) as well as members of 25X platinum rock band, Queensryche. He also co-wrote the Seattle Mariners' theme-song (to be released soon), and many more. 

Studios and musicians are lined up and all Jazmin needs is your support to make the album and following promotional efforts a reality. The goal is that not only you, but also people currently unaware of Jazmin and her music will have a chance to discover it. This also means making music videos, online/print advertising, and eventually even touring!

Jazmin will be making an album independently (without a record label), but that doesn't mean by herself, it means WITH YOU... 

Minimum Goal: $3,000 will allow Jazmin to produce 3-5 songs. 

$3,000 is the minimum Jazmin needs to make the kind of music she wants to create. It will cover musicians' fees, studio time spent producing, writing, arranging, mixing, mastering, manufacturing of CD's, travel/accommodation expenses to Los Angeles, plus postage & shipping costs to send out all the rewards to backers - Kickstarter also takes 5% and Amazon 3-5%. 

Secondary Goal: $5,000 will allow her to produce 5-7 songs.

if Jazmin raises more than $5,000 she will be able to create an E.P  (Mini-album) of her music, make a basic music video, and begin promoting herself. Many other well-known young artists have taken advantage of a debut E.P., and the results can be tremendous. 

Ultimate Goal: $10,000 will allow her to produce an entire album!
A dream come true for Jazmin would be to produce a full-length album of original material and possibly some cover-songs to share with the world. She will also then be able to produce a full-quality music video, promotional videos, release an album, and promote herself to an even greater audience, and open up and amazing array of opportunities for her in the recording industry.  

Thank you so much for your time while reading, watching, listening, and supporting! 

Risks and challenges

The creative challenges of making an album and pouring our souls into the songs are always the deepest and most rewarding. But no matter how difficult striving for artistic excellence may be, it is always worth the energy. Jazmin's dedication to her talents has been the very focus of most of her life so far. At such a young age, she has enough passion for music to overcome any challenge ahead of her! Coupled with the support of her community at large, she will be able to flourish in her music career!
