About

MUSIC THAT BUILDS BRIDGES

Hello Friends! I am so excited to create this full-length album with you! If you know me, you know that my music makes people feel good, and our world could use some more feel-good music right now. The kind of music that bridges hearts and minds, building belonging rather than walls. That's what my music is for.

With your support, I have been sharing my songs for the past 15 years all over the place. I have moved back and forth across the country, literally from coast to coast, gathering experiences, stories, highs and lows. I've put all those experiences into these songs, and I can't wait to share them with you. There are some brand new tunes, and even the ones you have heard live are going to be arranged uniquely on this album. I have assembled an amazing team of collaborators to bring this music to life at its fullest. (See my Updates section to meet some of them!)

I felt strongly in January that this was the right year to make the album, and have been doing pre-production for several months now. The plan is to begin recording in June, mix and master over the summer, and release the album by October. The $21,000 budget includes everything:

We are doing it ALL! Any amount raised over the budget will go toward PR and marketing, and additional expenses we run into along the way. 

THE GOAL

At the end of this 21-day campaign I'm going to make an album that I'm really proud of, and that YOU can be proud to have helped bring into the world. To do this we have to reach our goal. Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing platform and doesn't give project creators any of the funds unless the entire goal is reached. So we are ALL IN and GOING BIG. 

I am so grateful for your continued support, and I hope you will help me spread the word about this project!! Thank you in advance for bringing this album to life with me! Doing this with you makes it so much better. I love you!! XO Lara

Risks and challenges

Album: I don't foresee any major challenges to completing this project. I'll do everything I can to have an extremely high-quality finished product in your hands by the expected completion date. If unavoidable delays or setbacks do arise, I'll keep everyone informed and get back on track as quickly as possible.

Cover Songs: The digital covers and YouTube videos will be created after the album is completed so that I can stay focused. I'll do my best to get them to you in a timely way.

Concerts: My goal is to get private shows scheduled within one year of the date that the album is completed. We will find a mutually agreed upon date planned well in advance.
