SJP Records Her Debut Album. Help the Music Come to Life!

$13,733

Dear Backers,

My name is Samantha Joy Pearlman and I am a songwriter.  I've always been a writer, a singer, a storyteller, an entertainer, and an open-book ever since I can remember.  But now I've combined all my passions, my heartbreaks, and my joy into songwriting and it's time I share it with all of you.

With big change comes big breakthroughs.  This album, co-produced by my dear friends Andrew Fox and Graham Richman, is a culmination of a year of growth and self-discovery (or in hippie-dippie speak: my Saturn returning).  It is music that will make you smile, cry, shake your booty, rinse/repeat.  

Recording this album requires a lot of TLC and that means a lot of $$$.  If you donate to my campaign, you will be helping me pay for:

  • Booking a recording studio
  • Paying my producers and engineers for their time and work.
  • Paying my musicians who will perform with me on the album, and help me bring these songs to life 
  • Mixing and Mastering aka making me sound like a pop star

If I hit my goal, there are many more things that your dollars can help me accomplish. Any additional money you donate can go towards things like:

  • Hiring additional musicians to play on the album (think horn section, strings, percussion, etc.). 
  • Creating physical copies of the album on CD and vinyl 
  • Album artwork 
  • Digital distribution (spotify, apple music) 
  • Promotion
  • Live touring in a city near you

Thank you all for your support and without you, none of this would be possible.  I can't wait to share the music with you.

Love always,

Samantha Joy Pearlman

Risks and challenges

This is my first venture into recording an album so I'm bound to learn a LOT as I go. But I have amazing co-producers, Andrew Fox and Graham Richman, to help me steer this ship and with your monetary support, we will get the music to all of you!
