About this project

Hi, my name is Lola and I´m a english/german 26 year old Singer-Songwriter, Illustrator and Poet from Berlin, Germany. Currently, I´m working on my very first debut album. My heart longs for nothing more than to sing and tell my stories and touch your heart deeply within. I worked hard and passionately for the last 5 years, composing and writing my songs to share with you. 

Here is one of my first finished songs I put on Soundcloud, recently:

| WHERE YOU COME IN | 

I have a hard time asking for help. My inner idealist and independent voice tells me to resist it. That I can do anything I set my mind to and am capable of absolutely anything. And yet, some of the most beautiful exchanges in my life have been when I’ve needed aid. When my vulnerability was all I could display. I need your help: Making music takes a lot. A lot of time, a lot of energy, a lot of perseverance, and a lot of resources and a LOT of believe to keep working into the uncertain. With the current state of my life, I simply cannot carry the weight by myself. So, I’m asking if you’ll help me to make it possible. Your participation will help fund my next steps:

1) Creating my very first music video for the song "Those Beautiful Boys"

Here is an exclusive song preview for you :) 

2) Creating a homepage, have a photo shooting and digital artwork for my single "Those Beautiful Boys"

3) Financing my very first online release in the UK with the help of a pr agency 

| Project Goal |

The goal of this project is to raise enough money to finance a viral marketing campaign and shooting my first music video. I sadly do not have the funds to do this, but this is where you come in! 

I worked tirelessly night and day while living in Berlin, Germany. It was one of the most grueling experiences of my life, but somehow I scraped together enough money to support my talent. I want this project to be bigger and better !

So I aim to raise €5000 to produce videos, play live with professional hired musicians I need and to make more music I can release and promote around the world!

I want to produce something professional in hopes of gaining a team who will help me become more successful at booking shows, touring, and promoting my music. Any extra money being raised by this campaign, will be invested directly into new song productions, buying the right equipment to extend my live shows, and/or ( even better ) pay my team both on and off stage. Dream big! 

My music has a electronic poppy indie sound.. it is very mysterious and playful at times and emotionally raw at others. Inspired by my icons like Kate Bush, Björk, Jessie Ware, Minni Riperton and Massive Attack only to name a few... I wrote about my life as a small girl in the big city. As a young artist looking for love, feeling isolated from reality and creating my own imaginary bubble of dreams.. filled with an orchestra you get that Walt Disney feel of romance and desire.. of a world where everything seems a little more sparkly and euphoric... but in the next moment you land on hard grounds of reality. 

I want to share with you all of my tales, thoughts and express my deepest secrets in order to move you as deeply as I can. I am brimming over with ideas and I am extremely excited about the possible results for this project with your kind help - of course!  SO THANK YOU <3
