$3,068

Last year, I released my debut album and learned so much! After it's reception, travels to NYC and the formation of strong bonds with brilliant musicians, I had an intense itch to get back in the studio. Together with co-producer, Justin Mantooth and a team of the best, "Want Me" came to life! To say the song haunted me is an understatement. I had been sitting on it since before Caged Bird Sings Songs About Red Beard hit, last July, and I could hear it in my head everywhere I went... It demanded to be heard!

Now that it's out it's music video time!

A music video is an essential part of propelling a recording artist's career to the next level and I want to reach as many ears in this world as I can! Your support has meant everything to me... I don't even know if that word does what I feel justice. You help me to stay fearless, focused and inspire me to push my pen, even when it's hardest to write. I expose my heart, darkness and scars because of how alone I have felt in my life. I don't want anyone else to feel that. You keep me alive.

With your help I can reach more hearts that can't find their voices into today's music industry landscape.

The total cost of this undertaking is $4K but $2500 helps me get started with the shooting of my video and means I can pay the crew and talent that will be featured! I am teaming up Method Media (Responsible for videos from SSION and more!) to bring you a striking, sharp and sexy video that reintroduces me and that will feature one of Kansas City's fiercest talents.

Anything above $2500 helps with the total cost of the music video (post-production, distribution and PR). It also insures that I can get back in the studio and deliver my new single to you! Many shows are coming up to support these singles and my debut album and your donations also help me pay my brilliant band of musicians and tour across the nation!

Risks and challenges

The only reward that may take some time, outside of the August projection, is the listening party for the new single. I want the record to sound 100% all that it can be! Depending on musician coordination, studio availability and more, the date could move.

I will be sure to keep every backer updated on shipping snafus and date moves but am not anticipating any issues with delivery of the album, video or in-studio listening party!

Method Media has an extensive resume and their work can be seen in recent brilliance from SSION and more. They are KC based and have the equipment and crew to deliver a video that is high quality, industry standard and that will make you proud!
