About

Hellllooooo beautiful people!!! 

I am so excited to be here on Kickstarter heading this campaign. My name is Kasey, in case you missed that and, I am ready to record my second album!! Woohooo!!!

Back in 2014 I released my debut, self-titled EP. That was such an accomplishment for me, because it forced to me to step WAY outside of my comfort zone. But that's where the magic happens right? 

I have to say, some pretty magical things have happened since that release. I embraced my desire to become a singer-songwriter, which was a big deal for me since I originally moved to New York City for acting. I've played with some incredible musicians, put out a few music (and rap) videos and toured all around the country. It's been a beautiful ride and I'm ready to take another BIG step on my journey! 

I've spent the last couple of years writing a good amount of new tunes and it's time to put them out into the WORLD! 

I wanted to go ahead and get a jump start on this project so I got a pretty good looking (and also extremely talented) crew together and we started recording my song "Harder if We Don't." This song is special to me because it represents that idea of stepping out of our comfort zone. Look at this crew! 

As you can see, it takes a handful of people just to record one song! And we are just getting started :) 

Making a record really does require a lot of hands, ears, talents and masterminds. So, I have set my goal at $15,000. This money will go towards paying my producer and musicians, renting the studio, mixing and mastering the songs, a graphic artist for album artwork and printing CD's. YEP, It's A LOT! But we can do it :))) 

I am so excited to be launching this campaign at this time because I've been making my way across the country sharing my music for almost TWO MONTHS!

I've seen so many incredible things and met too many awesome people. I will be wrapping up this adventure over the next month and a half and I am hoping to hit the studio ASAP when I return to NYC! 

When I first decided to do a Kickstarter campaign I felt A LOT of resistance, but the more I thought about it the more excited I got because this is an opportunity to involve fans, family and friends all around the world on my journey of making a new record! That's pretty rad! 

So, I want to say THANK YOU! Thank you for being here. Thank you for all of your support and love you have shown me up to this point! Thank you for all that you continue to show! It really does mean the WORLD to me! I am SO EXCITED about this project and even more excited that YOU get to be a part of it! 

With all my love and gratitude, 

Kasey 

 

Risks and challenges

Making a record always takes longer than I think it will! There are many things that can pop up along the way with scheduling musicians and needing more production time. But I have confidence that with this financial goal met I will be touring with new music in hand by this time next year!

I will do my VERY BEST to keep you in the loop and always appreciate your patience :)
