SOFIJAZZ - Debut Album

$6,280

109


Hello everyone!

(Za Sprski, pogledajte ispod u donjem delu stranice!)

That meant - for Serbian scroll down. Because hey, guess where I am from?

My name is Sofija, but people call me Sofijazz, somehow my parents conveniently gave me a name that with just a double zz at the end makes a great jazz name. 

This is my first solo album recording that I am attempting to accomplish this year, should this Kickstarter campaign be successful. It will be a mixture of originals, jazz standards and some other interesting music that I am sure you’ll be intrigued and pleased to discover. I can honestly say that this is the moment I’ve been the most excited about my entire life, and I truly can’t wait to get the opportunity to share this music with all of you!

This project will feature some of my all time favorite musicians. People that I have worked with in the past but also people that I’ve admired for a long time and finally have an opportunity to work with. AND as a few of the rewards mention, you can come and visit us at the studio and even sing with us!

Coming from a young family of artists with 5 children, and from Serbia, I put my goal of $6200 at the minimum that I would need to complete this project. I understand that this is still a lot to ask for, and I will be extremely grateful and humbled if with your help we achieve that goal! Unfortunately, I also understand that we’ll need twice that amount to finish the album and triple that to get it heard!

If you have ever thought about how you can support independent musicians - this is the way to do it! I have worked all my life to create a work of art that’s honest, beautiful, and powerful, something that will hopefully touch people, and take you through a deeply personal emotional experience. Your help is instrumental in bringing my music to fruition. Any reward is extremely appreciated!

Your help will enable us to cover around a half of my budget for the entire album, all money raised will go towards: Studio, musicians (coming from various parts of the world) engineer, mixing & mastering.


9500$ If we surpass the goal, it will help us do the design, printing of CD’s, licensing and publishing

$13 000 If we surpass this one we will also be able to do music videos, marketing, radio play and worldwide distribution!

I have been a part of this industry since I first started touring as a very brave and imaginative 7 year old girl. I am hard-working and responsible for my supporters contributions.  I will absolutely do my best to make a lasting work of art in an economical fashion. 

I ask you to be part of my team and join me in this lovely dream.

Thank you profoundly for your support!

Sofija

Zdravo svima!

Moje ime je Sofija, ali me ljudi zovu Sofijazz. Igrom slucaja roditelji su mi dali super ime koje se sa samo dva ZZ na kraju pretvara u sjajno jazz umetnicko ime! Ja sam umetnica od rodjenja - stvarno! Kada se moja mama porodila mediji su najavili da se rodila mala umetnica Sofija, samo nisu znali da necu biti vizuelni umetnik poput mojih roditelja vec muzicar.

Ovo je moj prvi solo album koji pokusavam da snimim ove godine, ukoliko ova Kickstarter kampanja bude uspesna. Album ce se sadrzati od originala, jazz standarada i neke jos zanimljive muzike koja ce vam nadam se zaintrigirati i zadovoljiti culo sluha. Ja mogu iskreno da kazem, da je ovo najuzbudljiviji momenat u mom muzickom zivotu, i da zaista ne mogu da docekam da podelim ovu muziku sa vama. 

Ovaj projekat ce predstaviti neke od mojih omiljenih muzicara. Umetnika sa kojima sam vec saradjivala kao i ljudima koje pratim vec godinama i konacno imam priliku da radim s njima prvi put. TAKODJE kao sto mozete primetiti jedna od nagrada je da prisustvujete snimanju kao i da PEVATE s nama na albumu.

Ja poticem iz mlade porodice umetnika sa petoro dece, iz Srbije, i imajuci to u vidu razumem da je ovaj minimum za album od 6200$ (5590eur) izuzetno velika suma novca, ali zaista minimum da se ovaj projekat kompletira. Iz tog razloga cu biti izuzetno zahvalna i sretna za bilo koju donaciju, i presretna ako uspemo da dodjemo do cilja. Nazalost ja takodje razumem da cemo morati da dodjemo i do jos duplo vise novca ne bi li uspeli da album iznesemo pred svet da ga cuje.

Ako ste se ikada kapitali kaka podrzati nezavisne umetnike - ovo je pravi nacin! Mi ceo zivot radimo na stvaranju umetnickih dela koja su iskrena, prelepa i mocna, dela koja ce dotaci ljude i provesti kroz duboko licno emotivno i intelektualno iskustvo. U ovom momentu vasa pomoc je presudna u ozivljavanju ovog umetnickog dela. Svako preuzimanje nagrade je izuzetno cenjeno!

Vasa pomoc ce nas omoguciti da pokrijemo deo budzeta koji ce ici za placanje muzicara, studija, tonca, miksanja i masteringa. 


9500$ Ako nadmasimo ovaj budzetni cilj, pomocice nam da uradimo dizajniranje, stampanje diskova, licenciranje i izdavanje. 

12 000$ Ako nadmasimo ovaj cilj bicemo u mogucnosti i da uradimo spotove, marketing, radio promocije i svetsku distribuciju!


Ja sam deo ove industrije jos od 7. godine kada sam kao mala hrabra mastovita devojcica vec putovala po raznim turnejama. Izuzetno sam vredna i odgovorna za svaki doprinos mojih dragih prijatelja i pratilaca. Trudicu se da napravim trajno umetnicko delo na ekonomican nacin.

Budite i vi osoba pobedonosna i pridruzite mi se u ostvarenju sna!

Puno vam hvala na podrsci!

Sofija
