Love Notes: (from yourself to yourself)
Sunflower Summit is a Chicago based singer/songwriter and band. Her debut record, Love Notes, is all about the highs and lows on the journey to self-love. The record's mission is to represent how mental health and self-love highly impact one's perspective, with a focus on being kinder to herself and the people around her, and reveling in the highs of self-love and community love. Sunflower Summit intends each song to give the listener a hug - reassurance - that no matter where in life they may be, everything is going to work out the way it should.
Sunflower Summit wants every woman and individual out there to feel empowered by their femininity and inner strength and beauty. The music on the record is vocally driven, accompanied by rhythmic ukulele riffs, viola and cello. Delicate sounds paired with powerful, image-heavy lyrics, each song explores the ways self-love manifests itself in nature, in stress, in rest, in perseverance, in sadness, and in joy. Sunflower Summit strongly believes in the power of story telling, and hopes that in sharing her story, others will be inspired to share their own and to move closer to who they want to be.
The funding from this platform will go towards creating the record; it will pay for our brilliant Sound Engineer, Rick, and our string players Drew and Anna, and of course, the digital and physical distribution of the album. Additional funding will procure merch, including stickers, t-shirts and bracelets, that will later be sold to offset costs. Merchandise will be produced by globally conscious organizations, such as MudLove (mission to provide clean water to high-need communities in Africa), and Causegear (mission to provide counselling and education to women rescued from human trafficking).

Risks and challenges
The Challenges Ahead: The Timing
Sunflower Summit is working with exceptional musicians throughout the Greater Chicago Land area and Wisconsin. Because everyone working on this album is spread out, rehearsal time is limited and the funding will provide for 10 studio hours that must be used efficiently and productively.
The recording date for all musicians is likely July 13th, but may change in the case of an unforeseen event. The release date and the distribution of digital and physical records is an estimated to be released by the end of August.
Should there be a change to tentative dates we have set, you we will be updated you on when you will be able to download early versions of the record and receive a physical record.
