WE DID IT!!!!! LET'S KEEP GOING!!!
_______________________________

Stretch Goal: 300 backers. 30K. VINYL!

Thank you so much to all those who backed thus far. WE ARE MAKING AN ALBUM! Still quite a few days left, so let's spread the word! #SleeplessNights
_______________________________

Oftentimes, melodies come to me in a stream of unconsciousness - between sleep and awake. I sit up half-asleep, record the melody on my phone and close my eyes again. On some occasions, these unsolicited inspirations result in sleepless nights.

I'm Rebecca Roubion, a Nashville-based singer-songwriter, and “Sleepless Nights” is my 1ST FULL-LENGTH ALBUM. With the help of folks like you, I’ve been able to release a few small projects, but I’ve always wanted to release a full-length record.

Thanks to your support I recorded songs that received label attention, and last year I signed a TV-film deal with Dualtone Records (a few songs made it onto TV-shows)! YOU have made this possible, people.

Even with this label partnership, I still need to fund my albums independently. Here’s where YOU come in.

I believe in these songs, and I believe in my calling to share them with you. YOU are the reason I do what I do, so I want YOU to be a part of it all! 

Step 1: Check out the reward packages to the right!

Step 2: Make your pledge by clicking the big green "Back This Project" button at the top-right! 

If you find a package you want, but want to give more, you can always add to the pledge amount at checkout! If you want to get really crazy, you can select them all! 

We have 30 days to reach $20k. If we do not reach $20k within 30 days, Kickstarter will not bill you, and I will NOT receive any funds for “Sleepless Nights.” 

But I know WE CAN DO IT!!


About the Project 


When I was a young girl singing at church, a music mentor of mine told me to stay after the service. I waited at the piano, and he told me to sit down and sing the song again. But this time he said, sing out. No inhibitions. No self-awareness.

That is what this record is for me. Sitting at a piano, singing out, telling stories from the depths of my soul.

These last 2 years, I’ve been writing and cowriting songs in Nashville, and this album (slated to release Spring 2016) is a collection of the songs I'm most excited about!


The Need 

We’re already halfway through recording, but I really want this to be a collaborative effort between myself and all of you.

YOUR SUPPORT will fund the entire album: studio time, producer, engineer, players, digital editing, mixing, mastering, album artwork, replication and marketing!

You were going to buy the record anyway, right? Why not pre-purchase it here, get it before it’s released, AND get to be a part of the whole journey!?


The Rewards
   

It all starts at just 15 smacks. Not only will you receive the album, you can get cool stuff along the way the more you give! 

I want my music to have a lasting impact on peoples' lives, so included in the $150 tier is this bracelet I designed with Emily Howard of Consider the Wldflwrs in partnership with The Mocha Club. 20% of the proceeds for this tier will go to the education of hundreds of children in need overseas!

Stretch-Goal


If we reach $30,000, WE'RE GOING VINYL! "Sleepless Nights" will be printed the old-fashioned way, and all backers will receive a signed copy! Let's spin the album on our vintage record players, drink red wine, sit back and soak in all the syrupy details of each song!


Closing 

Lastly, I want to thank each and every one of you for your support. If you love music, believe in honest art, plant seeds and watch them grow, chase your dreams, then I want you to be a part of this project.

Risks and challenges

Once the project is successfully funded, I will be personally assembling each and every reward package. It will take time and energy to get the rewards shipped out. Coordinating any of my interactive tiers requires time and resources.

Please know that the est. delivery date is an estimation, and although the date could pass before you receive my rewards, I guarantee I will deliver them as soon as possible.

I will send updates to backers during the whole delivery process.

Please let me know if there are any issues with shipped goods - I appreciate you support and patience!
