About

For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed telling and hearing stories. I honestly believe that the most powerful stories we can tell are the ones which speak truthfully of the struggles and triumphs we have faced. If we are willing to make ourselves vulnerable, we can connect with others in their pain and also celebrate with them in their victories. 

Having spent the last 3 or 4 years coming up with words and melodies in my quiet time, I was inspired last summer to sit down at the piano and see if I could learn enough to put some of my songs to music. I taught myself some chords and instantly felt a release and a certainty that this was what I should be pursuing. Every time I have completed a song, God has given me a clear word to share it with a specific person and I now believe that He is telling me to go further and make them available to everyone. 

This EP is made up of songs that have been written during a time of change and fear in my life. They speak of God's faithfulness and unfailing love, as well as His ability to make beauty out of even the hardest circumstances. 

I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about this project but more than anything I am so excited to share these songs that have been on my heart for so long. My desire is that these songs would bring peace to those who hear them.

As of now I am working with a small group of musicians and friends to pull together arrangements for the songs and finalise the details of how this EP will sound. Once all the funds are raised, the next stage will be to begin recording in July with a goal of having the EP completed by the end of August. Pre-release for backers will take place in early September with promotion and marketing continuing throughout the month. The final EP launch will take place at the end of September. As I work on this EP, I will also be working and continuing to serve on the music team at my church. 

Risks and challenges

This project relies heavily on my ability to pull together a team of musicians and creatives to help me in achieving this goal. For me, this is why fundraising is so key. My goal is to be able to properly reimburse people for their time and talents.

I have a clear vision for this EP and a passion and determination to see it through as I truly believe that it has the potential to impact many people.

The biggest challenge to a project like this is unexpected additional costs. Any money raised over the target amount will be put towards these things and upon successful completion of the project, will go towards marketing the EP.
