This Is The Beginning
This project is full of stories, feelings, emotions, and life. My hope is that once it's finished and ready to be shared with the world, the things I have experienced will bring comfort to anyone and everyone who has ever felt the same way.
$3,500 is my goal for this campaign. This will cover the necessities, the bare minimum, but attaining more than that is the ultimate vision. Going above and beyond what the campaign is reaching for will enable us to accomplish even more with this project. There are so many things included in the recording process, as well as the artistic aspect of the merchandise, EP, and all of the help behind the scenes that the more we gain above the goal, the more we are able to enhance the EP. We would also love to have the funds to support small tours outside of Memphis in an effort to share our music beyond our city limits.
There are a ton of perks! So take a look at the list to your right :)
Some of the challenges this project may run into are like most first projects. The fundraising goal is modest, but sometimes money doesn't stretch far enough. We are currently in the hunt for the right company to create and print our merchandise. Our time in the studio may take a bit longer than expected and even menial tasks like transportation to gigs and shows can be a challenge. But it is our hope that at the end of the day we are able to produce art to the best of our ability.
This project is very special to me. It's the first EP I've ever made, but definitely not the last. My band is incredibly helpful and patient with me in the creative process; they are all geniuses of their own and I am beyond thankful for all of them. They have taken my vision and understood it. We are a team, and I couldn't do this without them.
I can't help but become incredibly connected to music, especially when I write and it comes from a vulnerable place in my heart. I want to create music that will stir within people a sense of understanding, and the knowledge that they aren't alone. Some of the music that will be on this EP is a bit theatrical as well, which I hope will be something that all of you as my supporters and audience can latch onto :)
Other Ways You Can Help!
Share, share, share! Donating funds to this is definitely the immediate and most important need, but you can never go wrong with sharing this video on your websites, facebook pages, emails, to your friends, family, co-workers...pets. We need all the support we can get, as well as your prayers and encouragement along the way.
Let's make music :)
