About this project

Exciting news!! I spent spring break in Nashville working with Jimmy Nichols and very talented musicians in the studio!! It was the best experience of my entire life!! We recorded 3 songs "Blue Jean Girl", "How Far", and "Hero in Heels". I can't wait to share samples of the tracks with you very soon!! 

Thank you so much for all the love and support you’ve shown me this past year! I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I released my first all original EP “Live, Laugh, Love”.  It has been so awesome reading all of your kind messages and hearing your reactions to my songs. I’ve been working really hard and I've grown a lot vocally and as writer this past year. I'm very passionate about my songwriting and through my love for writing I've written over 100 songs now. Each song is a gift from God, I am so thankful to have this gift of music to share with you. It is my hope that I can make a difference and inspire others with my songs. I have shared some of them with you online and at my live shows, but some of them I have been holding back just for this project! I love surprises and I can't wait to share my songs with you!  

I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with Jimmy Nichols (music director for Faith Hill, top session player and producer) and Judy Rodman (CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, awarding wining vocal coach, hit songwriter, and producer) on my first full length all original CD project! The plan is to record 10 of my original songs with A list musicians at Starstruck Studios on Music Row in Nashville, TN. It has always been my dream to learn from and work with the best musicians in the world and now it is really happening!  I’ve been working really hard this past year. I did over 100 shows in 7 different states and I sold a 1,000 CD’s in just 6 months. I’ve been saving all my money for this project, but I can’t do it all by myself… so here’s where you come in. You can help me make my “Wildest Dreams” a reality by pre-purchasing my CD and/or contributing towards my goal of $25,000. The money from this Kickstarter project will cover paying for time in the studio, musicians, engineering, mixing, and mastering and production of the album. This project is not the average project, it is a master recording session with A list musicians, producer, and engineer.

So you may be wondering how does Kickstarter work?

I set a goal of $25,000. Then you can pledge any amount you'd like! In return for your contribution, you'll get fantastic stuff like pre-release downloads, a limited edition t-shirt, an autographed copy of the album before it’s released, a personal concert, hand written lyrics just for you, your own personal song, or your name in the thank you notes of my CD, VIP guest--all depending on how much you give. (the rewards are listed to your right)

Kickstarter is an ALL or NOTHING fundraiser.

That means if I don't raise $25,000 by the deadline April 28th,  none of you will be charged, and this project will be delayed until I can raise the needed funds.

Thank you so much for believing in me and my music and for making this happen- I couldn’t do it without you!! I am forever grateful for your love and kindness!! You all mean the world to me:)!!!!

Love and Hugs,

Kelsey Klingensmith
