A very SPECIAL thanks to Chip Doll for his $1,285 donation....I am in awe and forever grateful. An additional thanks to Daniel and Jeffrey for taking me over my goal which is currently at $1,120!!!
The album is currently in mastering.....and now thanks to all of you, I'll be able to press up my hard copies and set this up for release!! With the extra money from your donations and everything I make over my goal for the next 9 days, I'm hiring a publicist to help spread the word and get my music on more radio stations and magazines.
This is all too exciting, and I just have to thank you again for being part of this. Artists like me can't make it without fans like you.
I'm now working on my handwritten lyrics and autographed copies for my bigger backers, and my personal requested cover songs dedicated to you!
You have my love and deepest thanks forever

This Friday I opened for the legendary band Jefferson Starship at Open Borders in Thousand Oaks, CA. It was truly one of the most amazing nights of my life. I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be opening for them again on the East Coast in October! New York New York here I come!
You all rock my world.....$3,351! And a very special thank you to backer John Beck who donated $1,000 dollars this morning! I'm in awe....all of you are my angels. I couldn't do this without you. 16 days left to reach my goal! The album is halfway done and I can't wait to share this with you, I'm so proud of what we have so far!
In two weeks alone, I've raised almost $2,000 dollars. Please enjoy this free download of my cover "Wicked Game" originally recorded by Chris Isaak, as my token of how grateful I am for your support and belief in me.
Full length interview with Warren Huart and Mimi Page:
The making of "Colorblind":
Mimi Page is not only my name, it's my musical identity. I've been writing songs since the age of 5 and at 15 years old I decided to go against the odds of a stormy, ever changing music industry and make it my career. After moderate success from my independently released EPs and Singles, I'm now in the studio co-producing my debut full length record with Warren Huart (The Fray, James Blunt, Aerosmith). With your kickstarter help, I'll be able to finance physical copies, professional mixing and mastering, PR to help promote and get my name out there to even more people, and start touring!
Getting signed by a major label and having the financial backing for record production, promotion and touring is getting harder and harder every year. As a young, independent solo artist I knew I'd have to make sacrifices in all areas of my life in order to make my dream a reality, and for the past 7 years I've been saving enough money from my day jobs to build a very modest home studio to write, record and produce all of my music. Thanks to social networking and a ton of demo tape submissions, I've gotten 3 of my songs on Sirius/XM radio, charted #1 on Amazon.com, #1 on CD Baby.com and #11 on iTunes in electronica for bestselling single, licensed songs to several independent films and MTV's "The Real World", and most importantly connected with thousands of listeners all over the world who write me daily expressing how much my music moves them. All of this done in the small space of my studio apartment.
I'm now taking my career to the next level. I am currently in the studio perfecting all my original songs with producer Warren Huart and am set to release my debut full length record within the next few months. With the success of my first two EPs and various singles, I know that this record will be a success. I'm financing all of this with my day job which makes my options of mixing/mastering, merchandise, promotion and touring almost nonexistent. I'm blessed to have reached the success I have through word of mouth, but I can do so much more if given the chance.
With your donations, I'll be able to fund the mixing/mastering of my record, promotion, physical copies of my albums (not just digital), merchandise (T-shirts, accessories, posters, stickers, etc), and tour!
Make my dreams come true, and know in your heart that you helped make it happen.
"New" charted #5 on Sirius/XM Radio's Chill station and #1 on Soma.FM Lush
