I'm making my debut album! Help me make this dream come true and be a part of this with me!

Where to begin? First of all, thank you so much for all the wonderful support y'all have given me. These amazing last few months and your continued support has really inspired me to pursue my dream of making music - and this, for me, is the most important next step.

THE PROJECT
Making it to the quarterfinals of this last competition was unreal - but I don't want it to stop there. I want to make my first professional album - with your help. The hardest part of getting cut this last time was the fact that it happened before you got a say in the outcome. I owe everything to you guys, and the amazing thing about doing my album this way is that it will be exactly the kind of music I want to share, and you can all be a part of it. I will keep you updated every step of the way, and can even get your input as we go. It's going to be an amazing ride.

HOW MONEY WILL BE USED
Oh man, guys - making an album is no small task. There are so many things that go into it... musicians, producers, studio time, equipment, mixing/mastering, album cover photo shoot, CD production and printing... it all adds up FAST. And I want to do this the right way so the end product is something that we can really be proud of. My goal amount is really I think the bare minimum to make this right. If we're so lucky to make anything above and beyond that, the better the album will be and the better we can promote it!

WHY KICKSTARTER?
One of the best parts of these last few months of being on the show was without a doubt the amazingly talented and wonderful group of artists that I met. We really became this family - and being around them has taught me so much and inspired me to really pursue this. Truthfully, I've been really inspired by seeing the amazing support my new family has been getting on kickstarter, and I think it's so awesome that we can all do this and be a part of this new era of artist-driven music where we can be ourselves, make music our way, and best of all, share it with you. :)

The most exciting part of kickstarter is that I get to take this project on with you! You'll be there every step of the way. I can post updates, questions, get your input - and since it's really you guys and your wonderful support that has inspired me to do this, I can't think of a better way to make this happen.

Thank you guys again SO MUCH for everything. Y'all have been nothing short of amazing, and it really would be a dream come true to be able to do this with all of you.

Let's do this!!!
