All I want to do with this life is Inspire. I am creating a music/film project to do just that. I want you to join this opportunity.
Ever since I was young, all I've ever wanted to do was make a difference in this world. When I found music at a young age, I saw the opportunity I had to impact the lives of many through music. My goal in life has changed; now, my only mission is to Inspire. With F.A.M.E, I have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend a unique 8-week songwriting, recording, and performance program at FAME, An Artist Development Company in Minneapolis. Out of dozens of applications and referrals from local and national talent scouts FAME accepts only a few clients for each 8-week session. I was blessed, honored, and humbled when I found that they had personally chose to want to work with me, after hearing my story.
Throughtut this process I will be working on a full length recording of my own original music written, composed, recorded, and engineered with nationally recognized producers who have worked with The Black Eyed Peas, Snoop Dogg, Atmosphere, Justin Bieber, Talib Kweli, Kaboose, Taio Cruz, Doomtree , Brother Ali, Cloud Cult, Les Nubiens and many other major recording artists. A Documentary of the entire process will also be shot.
I am underway in the writing phase of this process, and now I am looking to complete this project which is anticipated to be released in July 2013.
At FAME, I will receive hands on training from the best performance coaches, vocal , songwriting coaches in the business. As well as hands on expertise from record producers, and music business experts available in the Twin Cities, on how to launch a lasting successful career in music. In addition to all of this, I will be given a new website, logo, business plan, a consultation with an entertainment attorney, and performing slots at exclusive concert events in Minneapolis, MN Denver, CO and San Juan, Puerto Rico. I want to take all of you along for the ride with me.
This Kickstarter is really a question to those that know me and maybe some who do not. My vision for where I want to go with music is unlike anything you might have heard or seen before. I want to make music that is not so much about me as it is for you. What are we facing in the world today big and small that we can have a conversation about? Can we come together to make a records that really touch what's happening in the real world, in our real lives; in our relationships; in our hearts? My goal is to make music that changes peoples lives and Inspires you in your daily journey to be the best you, that you can be.
With this opportunity I believe that I can take that vision with this group of legendary producers and hit the studio to make music and that means a reality. With your help I think we can start something something amazing that can change the lives of many. Right now we are focused on making our costs to produce and record the album along with the behind the scenes documentary. When we are ready we are going with an all out social media campaign to get this seen and heard across the globe. The great thing is that the more we are able to raise through this Kickstarter campaign, the more we can put into the production and distribution of this record and documentary.
I have never been more focused about this vision or goal than anything else and life. I believe I was put here to make a difference. Music is just a tool to Inspire - I plan on using the gift of music to do just that; Inspire. I feel that this opportunity is the best shot I have right now to make a step toward being a nationally recognized recording artist, and helping to spread a more positive flavor of music to audiences everywhere.
Everyone in my life who has and will support me, For those who listen and shared my music online, follow me on social media, and give me positive feedback in person from my hometown to all over the country, your love is what motivates me. I’m asking you to come together with me to bring this music to the world. You are a part of something very special, I’ll be forever thankful.
