This project was successfully funded on February 7, 2012.
About this project
I’m Tracey Thomas, a singer-songwriter from Akron, Ohio. For the past 30 years I've been making my own brand of adult dark-pop music. After nearly 5 years out of the public spotlight, I’ve been invigorated by a batch of new songs I wrote with my longtime friend and producer Ryan Humbert.
This new group of songs has me so excited that I’m ready to record a new full-length album of original material to release this Summer!
The album will be called “The Queen of Nothing” and will feature 9 songs co-written with Ryan Humbert, one song written by my son Cory Thomas, one song written by Ryan Humbert and my own version of a classic 80’s pop song by The Waterboys.
Like the last record, “Ghost Town,” this album will be produced by my old friend Ryan Humbert. And also like the last record, I’ll be doing this record without the help of a record label. Making an album as an independent artist takes a lot of hard work, creativity and, last but not least, money. That being said, there really is no such thing as a truly "independent" artist, and that’s where you come in.
I’m asking you, my longtime fans, friends, family or anyone else who happens to see this page to take a listen to some of my past work and consider helping me make this new album come to life.
It’s no small task, but I’m excited to be able to move ahead and bring you the best music I can make. Starting Friday, January 13th you can be a part of my new album too!
For 25 days I will have this Kickstarter.com page where you can give a gift to help us make this new album! No matter how big or small your gift, you become part of the album and part of the music. Every penny we raise on Kickstarter will go DIRECTLY to funding this new album, including:
Recording • Mixing • Mastering • Manufacturing
HOWEVER: If we don’t meet our goal by February 6th, 2012, your donation is refunded, I don’t get to send you your exclusive rewards, and we're back to where we started. But if we do meet our goal, you’ll get some really cool music, gifts, rewards, one-of-a-kind items, surprises and more. And if we go over our goal amount, better still! We’ll have even more money to get the job done, and do it the right way!
If with your support we achieve our goal, you will have helped me produce what I feel will be the finest album of my career. Please help us meet, exceed and blow away the goal!
Thank you for your ongoing love and support throughout the years. Your help is SO VERY appreciated!
P.S. We only have 25 days to make this dream come true! That’s just $100 a day! Tell a friend and please help us spread the word!!
