************************************************************************************************************************

It is believed that your ship is going to sail according to how you name it. It is also believed that ship with scarlet sails is a good omen, a sign of a dream that comes true.


THE STORY:
Hi! My name is Olya. I came to New York City with a backpack seven years ago as a language student so I’d be able to write my lyrics in English and connect with the world outside of my country.
As soon as I stepped on the streets of New York, I instantly fell in love with the city. I felt like it was my destiny’s call to try and get my music going in this magical place, where you feel so big and small at the same time, and your daily intake of inspiration is higher than most skyscrapers.

It was adventurous and maybe crazy, but I took the risk and gained acceptance to a school, so I was able to stay and work on my English and my music.

Not long after that I fell in love again. This time it was a boy who loved my songs and also happened to be an amazing musician, Brian Viglione (The Dresden Dolls, Nine Inch Nails, Violent Femmes). Brian and I started playing together and named our band, Scarlet Sails, after a novel about a dream that came true, and love that lights up the world.

 Today, joined by our fantastic guitarist, Mark Kohut, and Jesse Krakow, our badass bass player, we are presenting you with our first album, Future From The Past.



THE SONGS:
It all comes together- New York’s melting pot of cultures, rhythms and tones, dreams that come true, fears that get in the way, the future that was destined to be, the past that defines the course, and the present that gets created on the way - all in the songs that I wrote throughout past 7 years that I lived and breathed here - played by a kick ass band and recorded at Atlantic Sound Studio in Brooklyn by Grammy-winning production team, Nic Hard and Diko Shoturma, and mastered by the legendary, Greg Calbi.

 

 

 

Brooklyn! When I was a little girl and I listened to American music, I never, in my whole life would have thought that I could become a singer in a rock band in New York.  That seemed like a different universe to me. And now here I am. I want to tell you, no matter how big or small your dreams are, you gotta believe in them. They do come true if you stay true to them, you make a difference in the world by being true to them and to yourself, and that’s what Scarlet Sails is about.

So dreamers, believers, and doers, we want you on our team!
We can take our music and passion further together-
Every dollar of your donation directly puts your hands into the process with us and facilitates the momentum of the band, from fueling up the tour van, to allowing us to expand and manifest the conceptual work and caliber artists we collaborate with to bring you the BEST of our efforts.

Where does it all go?

As you know, even when generous, talented people help to work within your budget, things add up quickly! It took a lot to save up for this, but to date we've already invested out of pocket:
- $20,000 on recording, mixing, mastering, and paying our band
- $8,024 on the 1,000 CDs and 500 Vinyl
- $2,400 on PR for March & April
- $2,500 on artwork and first, beautiful video!

 WORTH EVERY LAST CENT.

The allocation of funds if our Kickstarter is successful and surpasses our goal will be key in taking things to the next level and ensure that we gain momentum with this album.  Touring and publicity work in tandem and are the biggest expenses for us. However, keeping our vinyl and merchandise in-stock for the tours, and coupling promotion with new videos and artistic ventures for you to soak up are the components which can help us complete the whole picture.  


This truly means EVERYTHING to us to have the opportunity to reach out to you, earn your support, and give all that we have to the life we've chosen.  Our band wants to give you the kind of albums that turn into old friends, and play shows for you that have you glowing for weeks. Everything you contribute makes a difference, so spread the word!
Love,
Olya, Brian, and the Scarlet Sails crew ~

Risks and challenges

The bulk of the architectural work is DONE, so fortunately, that means the risks and challenges are very minimal in terms of getting the music into your hands. There's always the potential for a bobble somewhere in the production line that would delay the printing of the CDs or vinyl for a short time, but luckily we've got pals in the merchandise business that are willing to lend a hand and help pick out any manufacturing wedgies that might creep up on us.
Fulfilling the rewards will be manageable, and we have allotted ample schedule time throughout the spring and summer for shipping and face to face rewards such as the drum lessons and house shows. We are looking forward to making the connection with you all.
