Hello friends and community! My name is Kate Targan. I am a singer/songwriter, healer and educator currently living in San Francisco, CA. I've been happily singing professionally for the last 15 years in and around the Bay Area. I am now headed to Tiny Telephone Studios in November to record my second album called "The Circus." I can't believe it's actually happening but after 6 plus years, MANY ups and downs, a lot of unforeseen obstacles and lots of inner work, here I am 1 month away from my goal. 

The main theme/question running through my album "The Circus" is how can one stay centered, grounded and creative in a world full of constant distraction? My intention is to create music that is emotional and powerful. My intention is to also make music that helps you feel more alive and connected to your own life path and longings. 

I would LOVE for you to join me on this creative journey and contribute in any way you can. The cool thing about crowdfunding is that this creative process becomes a collective creative process and we are all in it together! SO AWESOME. I would be deeply grateful for any support you can give towards this album and thrilled to have you along for the ride. 

Your contributions will go towards the following:

Studio fees (12 days in the studio), producer fees, studio musician fees (5-7 musicians recording 5-7 full days), string arrangements (those are deceptively pricey!), mixing, mastering and distribution. 


Rewards:

There are LOTS of fun rewards I am offering to give thanks. Some of these include the prelaunch digital download of my album, private voice lessons, healing sessions, a behind the scenes look at the editing process at Tiny Telephone Studios, house concerts and much more!

Thank you again SO MUCH from the bottom of my heart for your support and contributions to my kickstarter campaign. You are an essential and integral role in this album coming to life and I am so excited to be in this creative process TOGETHER! 

Deepest Gratitude,

Kate Targan

Risks and challenges

As some of you may know, if I don't get the full $15k funding by the end of this campaign I will lose all of the money that has been previously pledged by all backers. It is vital that I hit this $15k mark so that I can move forward and record the album.

Please share this campaign with your friends and family so they too have the opportunity to contribute!
