UPDATE: I didn't meet my goal for a huge production, full-length album... this time! But I AM making some new music regardless! It will most likely be an EP. I want the world to hear the new and exciting direction my music is going. Who knows, maybe if it goes over well we will do this again and make the goal for a full-length album. In the meantime, if you still want to contribute to the current music I'm making (I promise you'll love it), head over to www.leahthemusic.com and there is a "Donate" button for you. Cheers!!
I am an emerging celtc-metal artist and songwriter from Vancouver, BC Canada.
In 2012 I released my debut independant album "Of Earth and Angels."
People have described me as "The ENYA of heavy metal" and "Loreena Mckennitt meets Delain."
I'm very influenced by celtic, world, and new age music as well as my love for symphonic metal. Fusing different genres together is a challenge I enjoy and that others seem to enjoy hearing!
I have a growing fanbase through the internet, purely from word-of-mouth and social media, since I haven't had the time to promote my music from touring (I'm a stay at home mom). Despite that fact, I'm absolutely amazed at the number of enthusiastic fans I've gained and continue to gain every day!
That is pretty amazing, especially because while I'm committed to being a full-time mother, people are discovering my music all over the world and raving about my album!
This is great! But now fans want MORE from me. If you liked my first album, there is a LOT more where that came from!!
What I Need & What You Get
A production like mine is not cheap, but it's nothing compared to what big labels spend! The following is an estimate, and one category may need more than the other category, but for simplicity's sake:
- $1000 for pre-production
- $10000 will pay for my producer and studio time
- $5000 will pay for musicians
- $8000 for mixing and mastering (this would be a bargain).
- $3,000 for album artwork, photography, and replication
- $3,000+ publicity and radio promotion (U.S., Latin America, Europe)
- $5,000+ videography and editing for official video releases
*** If we can raise more than our goal, we can take the music worldwide. That means radio and press, tv and film, official videos and MUCH more.
I've chosen a flexible campaign, which means I can if I don't hit the campaign goal, I can still use the funding that is raised. But it will mean we will need to re-evaluate where and how the money is spent and adjust it accordingly.
Depending of the size of your generosity, all contributors will get something very special from me :-)
In the meantime - I really want to give back, and so for a time, I am making my debut album "Of Earth & Angels" free for digital download!!
You can get that HERE
Also, my Christmas EP is also free :)
