MY STORY

Music has always been something I gravitated to as a child. Music was my escape; my safe place. I can remember spending hours in my bedroom singing and dancing in front of the mirror as I listened to my favorite artists. As I searched for my own self expression, I began writing poetry. I was a shy, awkward kid growing up so writing became a way I could express myself without feeling judged. With each piece I wrote, came melodies, which quickly turned into songs. Throughout my formative years, I continued to nurture my songwriting ability and by doing so I discovered another passion. In elementary school I was introduced to several different instruments and from there I was hooked on this music "thing". As I entered highschool, I joined our school's marching band and finally felt welcomed in this great big world.

Shortly after I graduated, I moved to Orlando, Florida. Not long after getting here, I started taking music more seriously and began developing myself as an artist. During that time I met three amazingly talented girls that would change my life forever. We became friends quickly and formed a singing group called, 'Urbanesque'. However, after a few years we decided to pursue our own individual projects and disbanded.

Now on my own, I've set my sights on really becoming the artist I've always dreamed about being. Inspired by artists like India Arie and John Mayer, I taught myself how to play the guitar. I felt I needed something that would help me bring the songs I've been writing all these years to life. The guitar was a perfect fit! As I honed in on my craft, I went to every open mic I could; I just wanted to be heard.

I've had the opportunity to open for some of my favorite artists, perform at major festivals and through music I've been able to show my support for causes which affect many women in our society.

While on this journey, I met Shaun Fisher who took me under his wing and believed in me enough to produce the music I've been working on. I've met some incredibly talented musicians who have all contributed to the creation of this album and whom I'm honored to now call my friends.

I'm proud to know that with all the challenges and set backs I've faced through the years, I can finally say my album is complete! Mixing, mastering and duplication are also done, as well! Countless hours and a lot of love has gone into creating this album. However, there is still so much more left to do...and this is where you come in.

WHY I NEED YOUR HELP

With no major record label, I need YOU to help give this album the wings it needs to be heard. Many of you have been supporting me for years and some of you are new to my music....and now you get to be apart of this dream with me! I have 30 days to raise $12,000. The funds raised will go towards:

-Marketing/Promotion

-An awesome music video

-A mini tour (I wanna see youuuu!)

I’m grateful for your support and promise complete transparency during the entire process.

WHAT YOU'LL GET OUT OF IT

If you haven't backed a project on Kickstarter before, the deal is YOU get all kinds of cool rewards like signed CD's, t-shirts, house concerts and more, in exchange for pledging money to help me bring the final stages of my album release to life. If the goal is not met within 30 days, no credit cards are charged. Kickstarter is ALL or nothing.

If you look over to the right, I've put together some rewards for you that I know you'll love! You can pledge an amount attached to a reward or whatever you would like. It's up to you!

WHY I AM DOING THIS

This album is about so many things, but mainly its an album I hope will encourage, strengthen and bring faith to anyone who believes that anything in life is possible. I want to inspire the next generation of girls that were like me growing up. The girl that never fit in, but never gave up on the voice inside of her that said she could do it.

I write from a very personal place so, you'll hear songs on the album about falling in love, breaking up, the need for acceptance, finding your independence and more; topics we all can relate to in one way or another. There are also a few feel good tracks that you can sit back and just vibe to! This album is a reflection of me and I hope of many others around the world.

Risks and challenges

Fortunately, the risks to this project are few. The album is already recorded and it sounds amazing. This project is about insuring a successful release, promotion and tour. After my project is funded, some of the risks might include getting the rewards to you in a timely manner, but I'm working with a great team that is helping me keep on track with deadlines. I am dedicated to making this dream a reality!

I'm so grateful for your support. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
