I am taking chances and asking for your hand in helping me record and release my first ever solo album. 

Falls is a full length album written by Whitney Ballen, that is expected to be released in early 2014. 

These songs were written in and inspired by the Pacific Northwest, which will always and forever be my home.

Early this December, I will be hibernating for three days inside the Old Fire House, a building that carries so many memories of Seattle music history, in order to record my new album. To capture the sound of this space, all recording will take place when the building is empty, after hours and throughout the night. 

_____________________________________________________________

This album was written with all of these things in mind:

mysteries of the fog, morning dew, downpour, grey skies, cold feet, crisp air, dry hands, cracked lips, fleece jackets, wool blankets, pine needles, heavy green moss, candlelight, cold river water, mountain shadows, evergreen trees, and falls.

Risks and challenges

The songs are already written, their titles are set, and my studio time is booked. I will be funding the recording costs for this project on my own, including studio hours and engineer fees. However, in order to make this album available to listeners, I need to have it mixed & mastered, duplicated, and packaged.

Every dollar is a kind contribution and can help further my dream of releasing my first ever solo album to a larger audience, where my true sounds and songs are revealed.
