r.e.l. and the EP adventure

$8,322

Hi party people!

So, from the name of this kickstarter campaign, you’ve probably realized that I’m working on my first EP right now! 

I’ve been writing and performing my music around Los Angeles with a band of super talented musicans for the past year, and about two months ago, began working with Grammy Nominated and two time Juno Award winning Producer, Dan Burns, on recording an EP for all you folks at home :)

 This process has made me realize just how much goes into bringing my songs to life and how many amazingly talented people are involved. Myself, rapper/songwriter Carol Antoinette, producer Dan Burns, musician Zac Rae (Lana Del Ray, Gotye, My Brightest Diamond), and legendary mastering engineer Greg Calbi (St. Vincent, Sara Bareilles, Talking Heads) were all involved with just the first track, “All That Bite”, which I’m stoked to share with you guys. AND a huge thanks goes out to director, Jillian Dudley, for making this video and directing the music video coming out soon!

My goal is to have my full EP—that’s 5 songs plus a bonus track of “All That Bite” stripped down—recorded, mixed, mastered, and ready for release by early September, and to do that I need your help in whatever way you can!

 Here’s how it all works: when you pledge for any of the items below, you get a digital download of the new EP, PLUS access to exclusive updates like pictures or video from the studios, unreleased songs, goofy outtakes and more.

Thanks to Kickstarter, I’ll be able to take you along with me on my EP adventure, and I’m so excited for the ride!

Forever yours,

r.e.l.

Risks and challenges

Here are a few thing that you should know:
- It's all or nothing. If the goal of $8,000 isn’t met, no money leaves your account and no rewards will be sent out.
- More money means I can put even more time into the production of this EP. Even if the goal is already met, you can still contribute and receive rewards!
The project is already in motion, your help will make it move faster and be the best it can be. Not meeting my funding goal means that it'll take longer before you get to hear new tracks and see new music videos. I've waited long enough to share my new music and music videos with you, let's make it happen now!
