About this project

Hi There! My name is Kelcy Lee. 

I am a new Singer and Songwriter breaking in to the Country Music genre.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a passion for Country music.  My burning desire has always been to become a Country Singer.  My parents would not consider moving to Nashville until I graduated High School.  So I hit the books hard and graduated 2 years early at the age of 16. My parents kept their end of the promise, and we relocated to Tennessee.  I have been blessed with opportunities to open for well known acts and be showcased as a songwriter. 

I have been blessed with a huge break!  Steve Bishir, A Nashville-based recording Engineer, Producer, Mixer who has worked on numerous recordings for over 20 years. He has received 5 Grammy awards and has mixed over 100 #1 Singles wants to work with me.  Here is his discography.  http://www.discogs.com/artist/Steve+Bishir#p=1&t=Credits_All&s=year_desc&per=250 He wants to record 3 of my songs, Welcome To My Rebel Side A fun and swampy song about being PC by day and letting your hair down at night, Girls Are Heroes Too, a song that is dedicated and recognizes the Woman who serve in our Armed Forces,  and Pulling Up Weeds, a sassy song about weeding out the people who drag you down!  We wants to do a radio ready EP!  What does that mean?  A Radio Ready EP means that a song has been mastered to play on radio.  He is allowing me to have  creative control!  This is huge for an artist!  Talk about living the dream... I get to record my own original songs that have heartfelt passion with fabulous musicians, a Grammy winning producer to mix it and make it the best it can be and ready for radio release in the future!  I have managed to save some funds but I still I don’t have enough funds to make this possible. This is where you come in. 

Luckily, Kickstarter.com has created a wonderful way for friends, family, and FANS to back this project. I need $11,500. Why so costly? $7,000 goes toward the producer, musicians, mixing, mastering fees. The $3200 will go towards promotional items such as Photos, Bumper Stickers, Sunglasses, Dog Tags, putting the songs on a disc, and the balance to Kickstarter fees etc. With a contribution as little as $1, you help me move closer to making this reality.  If 575 people contributed just $20 I could reach my goal.  Anything you can give is and will be greatly appreciated. Even if its just "forwarding" this page to all of your friends. 

So what is in it for you?   A Cooooool WIN, WIN scenario.   If the goal is reached, you get cool prizes like pre-releases of music and rewards, and I get the opportunity to record the songs with an awesome Producer. You will receive your incentive for helping reach this goal upon completion of the EP. (On the right side of this page, you will see pledge amounts, and prizes for certain pledges. All of my prizes are designed to thank you sincerely for every dollar you contribute.

What’s the catch? If I do not reach my goal within 30 days, every cent will be refunded to you, you don‘t get prizes, and this opportunity will not exist until someday in the future when I have been able to save the money money or signed by a label (but then I wont be able to sing what I want to sing the label will dictate what I will sing.)

Although there is a rule for being under the goal amount, there is no rule for going over the asked amount. Should there be any extra money it would go towards promotion, merchandise, and possibly radio tour, music video, etc....So please, make sure to spread the word, and tell EVERYONE!


Thank you for sharing and participating in making this opportunity become reality!  Enjoy the song that I co-wrote just for this opportunity!  =]


Love, Kelcy Lee
