DREAM BIG OR GO HOME!

Background: At this point in my career, not having an original album is holding me back. Many of you have followed me on this road from either my first performance at the 5th grade talent show to opening up for country artists like Blake Shelton, Gretchen Wilson, Ronnie Dunn and many others. For years many of my fans have been asking for a CD but I just haven't had the opportunity...until now!

Putting together an album is not easy. It takes the right people, the right studio, the perfect songs and much more. I am finally at a place where I have the tools and support to begin my solo project BUT it all stops here without you.

The goals of my project include: writing for and recording an album in Nashville and distributing the album on CD's and online.

The Studio: I have chosen Larry Beaird Music Group to do my recording in Nashville. They come highly recommended and have been great so far and I look forward to working with them. The session includes: a six piece band (bass, electric, steel & acoustic guitars, drums & piano), pre-production, charting & producing with Larry Beaird, all engineers, up to 15 hours of studio time for vocals/overdubs/mixes and the opportunity to pitch my songs at the "Evening With A Publisher" events. You can watch this video which explains the entire recording process from Larry himself!!   

The Writing:  I have been blessed by the opportunity to work with two amazing women (singer/songwriters themselves) who are helping me in the process of writing for this album; Nancy Beaudette and Connie Mims. They have been more than just co-writers to me, they are my mentors and most importantly now my friends. My first single, "In My Truck," will be one of a total of 5 songs that I will record in Nashville. The songs on the album include lyrics that are straight from the heart, have a little country attitude and often referencing my own life experiences. I hope all my songs are songs anyone can relate too. 

So....how does this work....

How do I pledge? On the right side of your screen are some suggestions for pledge donations. And as a thank you for helping me put this album together, I have organized a list of  kickback rewards. By pledging to this project you have the opportunity to be part of the entire process and to receive the album before it is even released! 

Don't see a reward or pledge that works for you? Then email me: shannajackmanmusic@gmail.com! Let’s work together to find a pledge that works best for you so you can still be part of the project!

What if I can't pledge at this time? If you are not able to support me with a monetary donation but still want to help me to fulfill this dream please share this project with others on your facebook page or any other social networking media. Spreading the word means just as much to me as a financial contribution!

I look forward to sharing this next step in my career with you! I can't say this enough, this can't happen without YOU. Let's work together make this project possible!

Thank you!!!

Love,

Shanna Jean

PS Special thanks to Brian, Zakk and Toft at 9b studios in Milford MA and Bill McGoldrick for helping me with my kickstarter video!!

Risks and challenges

My budget for this project includes studio costs, trip to Nashville to record and CD distribution costs.

If we do not reach our goal then the project does not get funded; your credit cards are never charged and we don't get to record the album.

On the positive side, if we raise more than our goal that money will go towards recording the first music video for "In My Truck" and/or any other marketing and additional expenses.

With your help you can be a part of helping me create this music for you.
