Somewhere between jazzy rockabilly retro-pop...
Is my world of feisty folk. And IN JOY was my gateway there- using the space of songwriting to find higher meaning in the heavy, the joy in the journey, and trusting all good grooves lead to home ;) That's where the original concept IN JOY came from. And now, IN JOY, VOL 2.
I'm a songwriter and music therapist.
Songs are my meditation, my livelihood. They're my magic trick, my mystery, my way of finding sense in chaos. Since my debut album IN JOY (2011), songwriting and music therapy have taken me clear around the globe, and back to L.A. The crème de la crème of my songs along the way have become IN JOY, VOL 2.
This is where you come in-
I'm not on a major label, I'm an independent artist. I manage songwriting to rehearsals to production and financing, designing to manufacturing, shipping, booking. And did you know it takes 250-750 online streams before we make $1? So I truly am employed by my fans. Here's what goes into a 99¢ download, and what your pledge will support:
So I'm inviting you
To be my label, my feisty folk army. And in exchange for your pledge, you'll get exclusive rewards and experiences. If you connect with what I'm about and want to support what I have to offer, check out the rewards and give what feels good...
If you're interested to make an angel investment or match pledges, then I definitely already love you. And you are an actual angel. Please contact me directly firstname.lastname@example.org
These rewards are available only on Kickstarter for the next 30 days, or until sold out. Your pledge will help me and my band take this farther than we ever could on our own. And you'll be joining a music family that stands for more than just a good time. So wherever you are around the world, whatever you're going thru, I hope it finds you, in joy. ~Sara
BONUS FUN FACT!
Mike Post is the hardest working moose I know, and he specializes in vintage and analog recording. So listen up music nerds: my new album is old school. We tracked thru a bunch of tube amps and gear, then mixed to tape through a 1973 Auditronics 110A board. It goes by "Grandson" and was made in Memphis for places like, oh say, Stax Records. So if you're still reading, then you know I mean it when I say- grab yuh good pair of headphones and enjoy the track-by-track digital preview of the vinyl IJV2 experience.
