"Inner Workings" by Jessi Trigger

$18,295

The Final Countdown!!!!

I actually have 20 total songs written that we could possibly record, if we raised enough! Whereas songs initially had cost about $1600/song, now they only cost me only $1250/song because the startup costs have already been met. So this is the most strategic time to support. 

How far do you think we can get?

New Song Video!

Thank You!!!

Wow. Thank you so much for joining me in this!! For me, this project is about more than just recording songs. The whole journey has been about reconnecting with my artist heart that got buried under life’s pressures, pains, and rejections. It's about the inner workings of my heart and the hearts of those I love.

It means so much to me that you would come alongside me in this journey. I need support in every way possible—encouragement, prayer, financial, whatever you can think of. It feels like one of the most vulnerable times of my life. But it also feels really good.

Because, “oh, it’s so good to be known”…

What does the money go toward?

Every penny of what you donate will go toward making this album a reality. The money you give will help fund professional studio time, engineering, mixing, mastering, and duplication. This takes my music from something I could record in my bedroom to something high quality and professional.

Why give now instead of later?

Donating now is super important because you'll be supporting me in the most direct way possible. Basically, the more money we can raise together DURING THE KICKSTARTER, the more songs I can record!

Risks and challenges

As with any creative project, there could be delays, but I have set the album release date for May of 2016 to make sure I give this project enough time to be its very best.

Of course, the project could take longer (but likely, less time). I have already written the material, booked a studio, chosen a producer, and rehearsed with my band. Now all we have to do is fund the project!
