Pre-order now and meet Jihae on tour. "Like Bowie whispering secrets to the Velvet Underground" - Dave Stewart

Dear friends, 

Illusion of You is the most exciting and compelling album I have been working on to date, I co-produced with Jean-Luc Sinclair and executive produced by Dave Stewart. 

After many years of my previous independent releases, I've learned the steps it takes to release an album. Finishing the album is just a start. To really make an impact, great marketing, PR, and tours are a must. 

The only thing missing is a budget. 

Instead of betting on a lottery ticket or waiting for the music industry to change, I'm turning to you... my listeners, my tribe to be a part of this album.

PRE-ORDER ILLUSION OF YOU & OR OTHER GOODS OFFERED & SHARE THIS PROJECT WITH YOUR FRIENDS! 

All of your contributions will go to final mixing/recording, mastering, album artwork, cd/vinyl manufacturing, marketing (4-5 music videos), PR (print, digital, radio) and touring (20+cities) for this album.  

I am so very excited to have you join me in making history with independent music! 

Thank you!

 Peace&Love, 

Jihae
