Thank you for taking the time to check out my fundraising campaign! 

My name is Liz Longley.  I am a singer/songwriter currently living in Nashville, TN.  Two years ago, I graduated from college and released my third album.  Ever since, I've been touring the US and writing songs full-time... dreaming up the day when I'd be able to record my next CD.  The time is NOW, and the project starts with YOU!  

Typically, a record label funds an album with a price tag upward of a hundred thousand dollars. Because I am an independent artist without the backing of a record label, I've put together a budget plan to make the album for $35,000.  

  • PRODUCTION, ENGINEERING & MIXING: $16,000
  • WORLD CLASS MUSICIANS: $8,000
  • STUDIO TIME: $5,500
  • CD DESIGN & PRESSING: $3,500
  • MASTERING THE CD: $2,000

If we can raise the funds, I'll be able to make my dream album and deliver it right to your doorstep.

**If we do not reach $35,000, the project will not be funded (your credit card will not be charged) and no prizes will be sent out.  So let's do this!!**   

      WHAT YOU CAN DO:  

  • Check out the "THANK YOU PACKAGES" & pick your favorite! -->  Choose from signed guitars, private concerts, personalized songs, album collections, limited edition packages and more. 
  • HELP SPREAD THE WORD through Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Email, Texts, Phones, Postcards, Telegrams... ;) Your word will be hugely helpful in making this project possible!

If by chance we raise MORE than our goal, the extra money will go toward promotion, radio, touring, merchandise... all stuff that goes into making an independent record release a success!

I can't thank you enough for all the support you've given me along the way... and I can't wait to say we did this together!!

Love always, 

LL
