About this project

Hello friends, family, fans, and random stopper by-ers!!

My name is Lindsey Ray and I'm a singer/songwriter originally from the small town of Belfast, Maine and now living in Los Angeles, CA. I like cats, my favorite color is green and I'm an Aquarius. Just threw that in there in case you're interested in that kind of thing. : ) Okay now back to the point; I've lived in LA for 2 years and in that time I've been extremely fortunate to have been able to earn enough money in the music business to pay for my first full-length album. The album is done! Produced, mixed, mastered, and sent off to be pressed with good vibes. While that in itself is amazing and wonderful, the tough part is getting the album heard and in people's hands. This is the part where a recored label would promote like crazy and push the record to radio and then I would tour the world with thousands of fans screaming my name and singing along with me. Can you see it?? : ) Anyway, the fact is I don't have a record label behind me. It's just me. Little ol' Lindsey trying to make a go of it independently. Being indie is fantastic in a lot of ways since I get to make the kind of record that I want to make and I get to dress myself and do my own hair and stuff. I can also be as silly as I want and no one can tell me not to. The downside is of course that there is no money.

I've spent every bit of money I've made on making this record, getting a website, photos, etc. In a perfect world I would still have enough money to go to radio and build a solid fan base so I can tour the U.S. and have people show up! This is where YOU come in. Thanks to this amazing website Kickstarter, I've been able to set up a project to raise money to go to radio. I'm asking anyone and everyone who supports what I'm doing to help me out if you can. Even $1 would help! Seriously. No amount is too small. One dollar is better than no dollar. I would be grateful for any amount that you could spare to help further me in the pursuit of my dreams. I feel so fortunate to even be in the position I'm in with an album fully ready to go to the masses. I want to share it with you so badly!! If I can raise enough money to do a radio campaign then maybe just maybe enough people will hear my music that I'll be able to sell a bunch of records and tour the country, or even the world and you'll be totally responsible for it!! Every time you hear me on the radio on your way to work you'll know that YOU made it possible. How cool is that?!

What do you get in return for helping me so generously you ask? Why loads of fun giveaways from me to you! I'm giving away all sorts of good stuff. I'm even giving away homemade batches of delicious treats like scotcheroos (read description next to $225). This is good stuff people! Signed copies of the album and EP, handwritten lyrics, sheet music, house-parties, exclusive unreleased Lindsey Ray songs, you get the idea right? You help me, I help you. It's a win-win situation for both of us. It's like the olden days when you fix my car and I give you 10 chickens for it. Remember that? ( I don't either but I'm sure it happened.) If we don't reach the goal, no one is charged anything and there are no giveaways awarded. That would be sad huh? No fun at all. So we need to tell everyone we can about this and send them here to my Kickstarter profile so we can all win! Let's do it!!

xoxo
Lindsey
