lovers and friends,
we've reached more than 60% of the goal and that's just fantastic! i thank you all so much from the bottom of my melodramatic heart! <3
i've updated the project site with two new releases that will be part of the EP we're crowdfunding here! hope you enjoy 'another life' and 'fog & quicksand'!
i'm raising money to release my first EP with 5 songs. here are more sound bites of what the EP will consist of:
... the money will cover the costs of:
- studio fees
285 monthly (x5) = 1425 €
piano rental = 300 €
- equipment for live performances
effect pedals ≈ 275 €
i've been renting space, equipment, and time in the nadel eins studio in berlin-wedding since april this year and will conclude my recordings for my upcoming EP (most likely) in august. to mend the hole in my bank account that this artistic necessity has dug, and to be able to invest $$$ in gear for better live performances, i'm asking you for nothing but a tiny bit of your freshly printed euros.
The EP will be recorded, mixed, mastered and finally released with the help of friendly musician friends, the people from nadel eins studio, and me!
Take a glimps at the artwork. It was created by my talented friends André Fau & Bruna Scorsatto. Here's the cover of the second single release preceding the EP:
hounds was my first single release early july this year. listen to it on spotify:
The release will not only be a wonderful fabulous high quality product of my music that you can listen to whenever you feel like it, but it will also help me book gigs at bigger venues and grow as an artist in general (through applying for festivals, to record labels or booking agencies) ...
That's why your support matters so much to me as a singer, composer, and performer! <3
if you wish to contribute to my project, you're free to choose the sum, of course. However, there are certain tiers tied to certain sums. so you might wanna look into that, too. for example, you'll get two song booklets with guitar tab and/or piano accompaniment for hounds & another life. in this bundle, you'll also receive download codes for all the releases (all singles & the entire EP)
Nansea (ˈnænsi) is the musical moniker of Berlin-based musician Marek Polgesek. With their music, they create a queer indie/chamber pop sound that goes beyond the traditional singer-songwriter style, while paying tribute to gender nonconforming artists that inspire them. Their sound has been described as a ‘more whimsical Rufus Wrainwright’ and reminiscent of Jeff Buckley and The Irrepressibles. The themes of Nansea's music address their individual experience of the world, with its clashes between hetero-normative constraints, and the incredibly diverse countercultures that arise from it.
Risks and challenges
Renting a studio to record my EP requires a monthly payment of the fees, a lot of planning and coordinating with fellow musicians and others involved. The project is a safe bet, because the majority of the work is as good as done!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
