Hi, I'm Lena Collins and welcome to my kickstarter for the physical release of my debut E.P. "Lay Your Ghosts". My first new music release since the Initial Thought "Brainstorm E.P" back in 2014. Bit cringey hearing this version again but here we go... XD
Before you're too put off of this project, please take a listen to this teaser from the "Lay Your Ghosts" E.P. It's a lot more developed now! (Silent Dream is the second of the four snippets, starting around 19 seconds in)
I'm going to say that regardless of whether or not this kickstarter meets its target or not, my E.P will get released. However it will only be in a digital format unless the kickstarter makes its goal.
The E.P. is currently completely recorded and the final mixing process has begun.
The Lay Your Ghosts E.P will be my first solo release, comprising of four songs written over the past couple of years. These are songs that either have never been recorded before, or never got the full recorded treatment they deserved.
Future Sight, Silent Dream and In Control started out as songs I wrote in my previous band, Initial Thought. Future Sight was a staple of our live performances and got recorded as a demo, Silent Dream was released on our only physical release, The Brainstorm E.P", which was a very bare bones recording, and In Control was never recorded at all. Tired is the most recent of the four songs and has only been performed live a few times, so it takes pride of place here as well. As the title implies, I'm giving these older songs their place to rest before diving into brand new songs for a full-length album.
Plan of Action:
Throughout July: Mixing and mastering
Mid July: Finalise album artwork
Early August (if Kickstarter successful): order physical CDs
September 18th: Release Day! All physical CDs will be shipped out and emails sent with digital files (if kickstarter successful)
Of my £250 goal:
£125 is for the manufacture of 100 physical discs and album covers.
The remaining £125 is for postage of the physical E.Ps to the 50 people who backed this project, and towards the cost of having the E.P available on digital platforms (Spotify, iTunes, etc)
Thanks for taking the time to look at my kickstarter :-)
Risks and challenges
Risk is at a minimum here, with the recording completed and plenty of time to get everything ready for release day. The only maybe is whether or not the E.P gets a physical and digital release or only a digital release.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
