Sally aka Black Swift ist gerade dabei ein erstes Album zu veröffentlichen. Das Album wurde mit Musikern aus Deutschland und den USA aufgenommen. 
Der Stil spannt sich von Tarantinohaften Road-Trip Rockern über Morricone bis zu Tom Waits.

Da das Mischen, Mastern, Pressen, das Design und die Promotion viel Geld kosten, haben Black Swift eine Kampagne hier gestartet. 
Sie haben ihr erstes Ziel, den Betrag von 2000 Euro über Beiträge zu erzielen bereits erreicht. Dies wird allerdings nur die Kosten für das Mischen und Mastern abdecken. Die gesammten Kosten der Produktion betragen über 5000,- Euro.
Die Kampange ist bereits erfolgreich, das Projekt steht hier auf der ersten Musikseite von Indigogo. Es sind nur noch wenige Stunden bis zum Ende. Jetzt besteht direkt die Möglichkeit dich noch zu beteiligen, wie z.B. einen Download oder eine CD mit einem Booklet mit Abbildungen der Kollagen zu bestellen.  Auch ein Wohnzimmerkonzert kann gebucht werden.
Neben der Music stehen die Collagen, die sich auf Songs der CD beziehen, aber eigenständige Kunstwerke sind. All die schönen (und weitere) Dinge können direkt auf der Indigogoseite der Künstlerin erworben werden, der Erlös fließt direkt in die Produktion der neuen Platte. 
Sei ein Teil davon!
Danke!

Black Swift's First Full-Length Album

With your help, Black Swift is independently releasing their first full-length album, titled "The World Howls". 

Rough Snippets (unmixed/unmastered) of songs on the upcoming album


What is this project all about?

Black Swift is songwriter, blues/indie rocker, and artist Sally Grayson. She has been working steadily on a new album for over a year. The bones of the songs were written by Sally, but the rest has come from a variety of musicians who helped arrange and record in numerous places in America and Germany.
 
Sally is excited to combine two things that she loves on this project: Music AND Art. She’s been working on a series of collages that connect to the songs on this record. They will be printed in the CD booklet as a miniature art catalogue.


What is the project goal and who is the project for? 

The aim is to raise the funds necessary to release the album and promote it. “The World Howls” is an independent project. To this point, Sally has used her own finances to fund the album production and promotion.
 
She does not yet have the help of a record label and needs YOU!

 

Why should you support this project?

You want to support independent musicians who take matters into their own hands and create what matters most to them. You want to be a part of helping to release a quality, incredible-sounding record.
 

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?

These funds will go directly to mixing, mastering, and designing the album. This is the first step and the bare essentials of what is needed. The second step is to raise the funds for pressing the CD and GEMA costs (fees for pressing a CD in Germany). The third step is to raise the funds to professionally promote the record. We want to get this record into the hands of people who will love it – and to do that they need to know about it.
 

Who are the people behind this project?

Here is a list of many of the amazing musicians and artists that have helped Sally along the way:
 

How can you be a part of this too?

Listed here are many great perks to choose from. Whether it is actually buying the CD, purchasing artwork, or ordering a live kitchen show (with stove diving), these are essentially gifts that you can buy for yourself, that you will be happy and surprised by later when you receive them.
 
You could also order them for someone you love! If you are interested in original artwork be sure to order FAST and reserve your favorite piece before it’s gone! Be sure to note that Markus Merkle (www.markusmerkle.com) has donated 4 of his beautiful collages toward this campaign- get them before they are gone!

From Sally:
 
“Whether you’re able to financially contribute or not, it’s important that the word gets spread! Please pass this along to your friends on Facebook and Twitter, email it, whatever and however you think best. It would mean so much to me to have your help in any way.
 
THANK YOU! We’re going to do this! I’m so excited about these songs, this record, the artwork, and doing this together with others – including you!”
