Jess McAvoy Live

My Campaign is the all or nothing approach to my thirteenth recording. Arguably some of my best compositions that I have been saving till the right time, and for the opportunity to work with the best people. The strength of the compositions and this moment in my career are both poised to help me gain exponential new exposure in an international market. Personally, this record promises to be my best work yet, and a catalyst to the storyline of "Jess McAvoy the singer-songwriter". However, if I can’t raise the capital from an outside source, the record will not be made. I want to know the demand before I create the supply. - No demand, no Album.

What are you helping me do?

“The Women” will be released internationally and will be the centerpiece for a myriad of opportunities including new music videos, tours of Canada, the U.S., and Australia just to start. A single album gives an artist the opportunity to promote their craft with gusto for up to three years.

LISTEN TO DEMOS OF SONGS FROM "THE WOMEN" HERE!

The Nitty Gritty (where does the 30k go?)

Musician Fees:$3000                 (Bass,Drums,Guitar,Piano,Choir)

Should my project generate more funding than $30,000, I will be able to properly promote the record release internationally and get to create videos for the singles from “The Women” far more rapidly than is currently planned. The more the merrier, I say.

Perks, you say??

I have tried to think of perks that I would personally want to receive from my favorite artists.  Options start as low as $5 !

EVERY PLEDGE receives a download of three songs from my back catalog automatically, plus exclusive access to the weekly video diary of the making of.

I want you to be a part of the process from beginning to end.

Why this record is important.

I have been candid about my life and creative process since the very beginning. I am a passionate believer in leading by example. “The Women” will be the first time I reveal in full candor my relationships with very important women in my life. Friends, Lovers, and even my Mum. I don’t pull any punches.

It has been my dream since I was a young girl to see positive examples of women in the media who lead healthy, honest, and brave lives. I always set about to provide some of that missing example, while creating intelligent, accessible, quality music and performances. I believe this record will be a great platform to help me lead by example to a wide and diverse international audience.

I have pudding (proof)

“Into the Dark” 2006 received rave reviews in Australian press, including “Album of the Week” in Beat magazine (Melbourne); “An Album to treasure.”  4 ½ stars in The Age (Melbourne) toting “…forget the rest, Jess McAvoy is one of the best.”

“As the Sun Falls” (2008) was met with even more support from the media in Australia, including multiple spins on Australian National Youth Broadcaster Triple J, Hefty reviews in the print media and online, plus spinoff success of the single “The Sailor” after I released a performance of it (featuring Gotye) onto Youtube.
