ANNOUNCEMENT! WE STILL NEED YOU!
NEW GOAL = $10,000
NEW BACKER REWARD = Immediate Download of Unreleased Song!
1. The New Goal is $10,000! This extra $4,000 will cover the initial costs for "FIELDS" I paid for out of pocket (studio time, players, pre-production and photography). Any additional funds thereafter will go toward "FORESTS" !!
2. The New Reward - Anyone who has backed or will back this project will get a completely different song in addition to the record!!
This song was the first song my producer, Taylor Bray, and I worked on together in the studio as the forerunner for our work on "FIELDS" and "FORESTS"!
It's a song called "Falliday" (as in fall+holiday). Some of you may have heard it before, but this version is unreleased, fully-produced and completely re-imagined.
When will you get the song? Immediately after you back! There is a direct download link in the exclusive backer update called "Free Fully-Produced Song For Backers Only", found in the "Updates" tab above! All backers (both present and future) can go to the update to receive this reward right away!
So if you haven't pledged, the clock is ticking, and we still need you and want you to be a part!
Thanks to all of you, FIELDS is coming soon!
Songs, people, dreams, communities: they are like "FIELDS." Each start as tiny seeds, and if nurtured, grow into a harvest.
I am the seeds. YOU are the soil, water and sunlight. Together, WE are "FIELDS!"
I'm Rebecca Roubion, a Nashville-based singer-songwriter, and "FIELDS" is my official debut to the music industry. It is an independently-funded EP - which is like a mini-record - consisting of 4 songs! (You just heard snippets of them in the video!)This record is my baby - the wave I want to ride for the rest of my career. And it’s already sounding incredible, but I want YOU to be a part of it!

But I know WE CAN DO IT!!
About the Project
In the last few months, I have been working on two concept albums: "FIELDS" and "FORESTS."
"FIELDS" is a lighter, fun and airy soundtrack that will release first, whereas "FORESTS" is a darker, more haunting compilation set to release next year.
"FIELDS" IS WHAT WE'RE FUNDING HERE, and it is set to release this fall (woot woot!) - with YOUR HELP.
"FIELDS" is my first Nashville record! My producer and I really dug deep into the roots of these songs and then hired specific players according to the feel and message of of each tune.
We hand-picked my favorite studio piano in Nashville and had the opportunity to work in some of the most amazing spaces in this town. (You saw them in the video!)
Everything was thought out purposefully and intentionally in order the let these songs truly speak.
Now, I am more anxious than ever to give you this huge, juicy chunk of my heart, mind and soul.
Why do you need funds?
Funny you ask. I took the risk of beginning the record already because I have faith in YOU – in US – to yield it to completion! This record really is the "kick-start" to my dream, and I want it to be a collaborative effort between myself and all of the people who believe in what I do.
Right now, the initial expenses have been paid (things like great players and studio time), and all of the songs are recorded and waiting in the wings for your ears..
BUT in order to FINISH and RELEASE the album, we need YOUR SUPPORT to go toward things like: production, digital editing, mixing, mastering, album artwork, replication and distribution - Whew!
You were going to buy the record anyway, right? (RIGHT?! twitch, twitch.)
So, why not PRE-PURCHASE it here, get it BEFORE IT'S RELEASED, and BE A PART of the whole process?
If you do that, there are other stupid-awesome things you can get in addition to the record. Ahem, speak of the devil...
This journey we're on is being offered for a flat backer rate of 4 bucks. (FOUR. DOLLARS?! Whoa..I know...Calm down.)
Beyond the reward of receiving the "FIELDS" EP, the ability to participate in "FIELDS" itself makes this opportunity extremely cool.
Check out the array of rewards to the right! You can get loads of miscellaneous, exclusive "FIELDS" happies, ranging from:
- ITEMS: custom tshirts, limited edition posters, unreleased tracks, original worktapes and other stupid-awesome things.
- EXPERIENCES: a private VIP Listening Party in Nashville, a studio session hang, a live concert in your living room, or dinner with me and my producer at the illustrious, 5-course, delicious Nashville restaurant The Catbird Seat and other stupid-awesome things.
- SNEAK PEEKS: into (waiiitttt forrr ittt) "FORESTSSSS"!!!
And? AND?!?! (drum roll...)
One lucky backer gets MY KEYBOARD "CASSIE," who has been with me through the first ten years of my career!!!
Cassie and I wrote many songs, performed on many stages, and traveled to many places together - she is so dear to my heart. Why not give her away to someone who supports my dream?

Risks and challenges
Once the project is successfully funded (fingers crossed!), I will be personally assembling each and every reward package. That being that case, it will take time and energy to get the rewards shipped out. Likewise, 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 Kickstarter Updates to backers during the whole delivery process.
Please let me know if there are any issues with shipped goods - I so appreciate you support and patience!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
