About this project

Dear Friends, 

I am very excited to be putting together my very first debut EP as an artist! As an artist, I am exploring, expanding, and challenging myself, and this process is taking me to places that I have never been musically or visually. To learn more in-depth on how this project came about and how I ended up rapping, see the video above)!

I should probably say that this might come as a shock to my friends becuase I am pop songwriter and have been working mostly "behind the scenes". Here are some examples of songs I have worked on:

Good Boy hit #4 on BIllboard Kpop Charts and was in the Top 10 for over 6 weeks.

 Redeemed by Romana hit the Radio Top 10 Charts in Portugal!

UPDATE ON 1.23.2014:

Please check out my cover video snippet of Rap God. The most received request throughout this kickstarter campaign was "Where can we see you rap?" There are two places you can see me rap now!

Also another BIG BIG UPDATE! Remember when I was telling you about the single that is coming out on a major label? I can finally tell you now that that it is out on Sony Music Entertainment! You can find it on VEVO starting this Friday 1.24.2014. The title is Champion - BornIMusic & Justine. Will post a link as soon as it is available!

Teaser: 

-----------------------------------

When doing your own project for the first time, it is truly exciting, but it can get really overwhelming, as it almost seems like an infinite number of stuff you have to prepare….and it adds up! For example, you need to write and record awesome music, find producers and engineers, plan for mixing and mastering, manufacture cds, design album art, plan for making a compelling video, wardrobe and makeup, find a location, find a video crew, get equipment such quality cameras and lights, make a website, create a logo, find designers and stylists etc. Wow…that is a lot for one person to do….that’s why I have assembled an amazing team to help me! ☺ 

 Working hard at the site of a music video shoot:

You can even check out the entire team here:

http://www.fieramusic.com/home/?page_id=844

Budget: Honestly, major labels use over $100,000 to have the kind of quality in audio and video and marketing to launch a new artist properly. We don't have that kind of money, but I promise we won't let that stop us. We are resourceful people here and we would like the chance to show you what we can do with not even one tenth of the typical budget. The team at Fiera Music and several of my other professional associates who believe in this project have volunteered their time or resources (or heavily discounted their rates) to make this happen. Whereas it would be much easier to work with a $10,000 budget, we have chosen to set the bar modestly for our goal amount at $4000 so hopefully we can realistically exceed our Kickstarter goal amount. :D

I guess now is a good time to remind you that Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing platform. If we don’t raise at least to the $4000 mark, then it’s like it never happened and while you do get all your money back, we would be very disappointed and temporarily screwed ☹. But you guys wouldn’t let that happen to us, would you? ;) Didn’t think so! ☺ 

Seriously though, every penny counts and we promise to make get the best quality bang for the buck and we promise any extra money that is collected, it will go straight to enhancing quality (i.e. more money, higher quality camera). All of your contributions directly affect the scale and quality of what we are able to do and the more we collect, the less we have to compromise on anything. So……..I have put together some attractive rewards to put you over the edge and help you pull out your wallet! ☺ 

 Check out the mockup of the logo t-shirt! 

 Check out the mockup of the logo mirror! 

 Check out the calendar card! 

So definitely pre-order because here is a chance for you to be a part of history and affect its course. To let you in on a little secret-a song that I am featured on is in negotiations with a major label to be released soon! Now, how cool would it be to say that you were one of the people who believed in this project first and pre-ordered and then heard it on the radio in the future? Think of all the bragging rights you would have ☺ 

In this upcoming year, I will be in full artist mode as I dedicate 2014 into realizing this vision. Some challenges we might face are schedule setbacks due relying on favors and dealing with a barebones budget, and getting material out in a timely manner, as well as on artist development side in such as deciding on final songs to make the EP and overall artist direction. However, I assure you that the people on this team and involved in this project are literally some of the best in the world, so if it does delay the timetable a bit, I am willing to wait a little to get the best possible outcome possible.

There will be a lot for me to learn, as I am new to being an artist, but as you can see, I am very passionate about this project and can tell you with certainty that, someway, somehow, we will make it happen!

Risks and challenges

We ask that you please be patient with us until the EP is complete. It is still a work in progress and we plan to complete one song, one music video at a time. Our plan is to release to you as soon as the singles come out so you can enjoy them while you wait for your hardcopy EP and DVD. On the other hand, if things go really, really smoothly, we might all have it in our hands earlier than we thought! Let's hope for the best!! Thank you for your support!! :)

FAQ

  • No. Champion is a separate single released by Fiera Music/Sony Music Entertainment with Born I Music featuring Justine. It is stylistically a little different from what we anticipate Justine's EP to sound like.

    Last updated:
  • As we are working with a limited budget and crew, we have to work on one single at a time in order to assure a timely release. When all the songs are complete, you will receive the hardcopy of the EP. In the meantime, please enjoy each single as it comes out along with it's music video. Thank you!

    Super deal alert: 4 hour video chat with Justine. CAN INCLUDE A CO-WRITING SESSION. One main difference here: the 4 hours is a good block of time so that's why we actually have time to co-write as well. So those of you interested in writing with a major label songwriter/artist, here is your chance! This could also be a great opportunity for you as if the song turns out really great, I might even shop it to the major labels!
