About

Hello everybody! Thank you for taking the time to check out my project. You should know that this album means the world to me and I appreciate each and every one of you that pledge. I also appreciate those of you that cannot pledge, as I have really struggled as well. I ask all of you (pledging or not) to please pass this along to everyone that you know. I have a hefty goal to reach, and I believe it can happen, but not without active participation from everyone. If even half of the people that read this donate $1 (that's so little to one person these days)...I will reach my goal. Here on Kickstarter, it's all or nothing. If we don't reach the goal, no funding will be provided at all. Please reach out. This is your chance to make a difference. $1 WILL make a HUGE difference.

A little more about me, for those that want to know:

My entire life has led me up to this moment. This album is happening...finally! Music is my calling. It's more to me than a hobby, or something that makes me feel better, or something that moves me. True, it is all of those things, but it is also all that I am. Dramatic? Sure, but true none-the-less. I tried to be someone else. I tried for 8 years. I cannot survive without being myself. I am music. I live for music. Even if no one else likes what I create, I have to do it.

I have started and run my own business, I have organized events, created and built huge projects, worked over a dozen jobs of differend fields, etc. I have been so many people already at the age of 31 and none of those faces fit me like the face I wear now. My true self. No matter what I try to do, I will always just be a girl that needs to express herself through music. Period. That is all I need and all I want. I don't mind working my BUTT off to do so, but as I have learned over the past year...the more you work, the less time you have to create, perform, record...you get the drift. Working 80+ hours a week does not leave any time left over for art. Art...the one thing keeping my sanity.

I listen to all kinds of music. I really do mean ALL kinds of music. I am inspired by it all. I do wonder how some of the popular music that I hear makes so much money and how some of the brilliant music that I hear makes none. We are the only way to change this. I want to thank Kickstarter for providing an avenue to promote change. I hope the best for every artist on this site and I hope that you reach your goals. If not the first time, then somehow and someway. This is why we live...all of us...the only reason. Our art. This is why we get up at 6am after 3 hours of sleep and work all day and all night with an hour break...then go home and fight off the drooping eyes just to hold our instruments, our paintbrushes, our cameras...our hearts and souls on our sleeves for the world to judge...all for what? Do you know the answer? If you do, then go pledge...if not to my project...pledge to someone you believe in.

I believe that this album will make a huge impact on others as it has on myself. My heart and soul has gone into every note so far and will continue to do so. You can hear the EP on my website www.VictoriaLoveMusic.com. I encourage you to listen...really listen.

I moved back home to Houston, TX last year to live with my parents, save money, and record this album. After a 2 month set back from a major surgery and a year of working, I am finally with my EP in hand. Thank you to everyone that has helped me get this far. You all know who you are. My family for their undying love, faith, and support,. Thank you to my very close friends in Austin, TX who I have barely seen over the past year. I miss you all more than words can express. Thank you to my producer, Roz, for being the genius behind this project and making my dreams come to life. you have truly changed my life. Thank you to the musicians that have given their beautiful gift of musical talent to help shape this project. Thank you to every artist that has and will continue to inspire me. And thank you to all of you for reading this, for listening to and supporting artists everywhere, and for pledging.
