About

Hello friends, family, and fans! You are here on my Kickstarter because this year I plan to record some music for you! I have wanted to get in the studio for a long time and begin recording the originals that I have been pouring my heart into, but haven't had the finances or the time. After being on American Idol this past season, I really got the boost I needed in my music career to begin pushing towards bringing my own songs to life. This EP is not going to sound like today's Contemporary Christian Music. It's not going to be a cookie-cutter worship record. I want to create my own sound. I want to dig deeper into what I believe the Lord is calling me to - authenticity. I believe that branching into a new space of creativity will allow me to expand my artistry into somewhere I have never been, and I'm so excited and ready to explore that.

My producer, Jacob Early, is one of the best in the business. I've known Jacob for a few years now, and I'm so grateful for how he has encouraged and supported me as a friend and an artist. He is such a pleasure to work with. Jacob truly has my best interest in mind, and I know he is going to kill this record. His skill is impeccable, but his artistry is what really speaks for itself. With the two of us navigating where to go creatively, I have complete confidence that together, we will create something incredible. 

What I need to cover:

- Producer 

- Engineer for mastering 

- Musicians 

- Artwork 

- Photography 

- Disc manufacturing 

- Marketing to promote the EP

If I do happen to exceed my goal to $25,000 or more, I could create 1-2 music videos with a stellar videographer. 

Thank you so much for believing in me. Thank you to those who supported me before American Idol, and those who got to know me through American Idol. I truly can't express my gratitude enough. I hope you choose to back this EP and go on this journey with me!

Risks and challenges

Honestly, it's all up from here. Once the project is funded, we will have complete freedom to start recording the EP and hit the ground running. We will be able to go in what ever artistic direction we feel lead to go, and that is what excites me! I believe that we will be able to get the finished EP to you by February or potentially earlier.
It's gonna be incredible and I can't wait to make this with you.
