The Grammy Twins are back as Waking Aurora.  We need your support in the “re-Inventing of Eve"! 

SUPPORT THE US LAUNCH OF GRAMMY-NOMINATED ACT WAKING AURORA!

The Rock Alternative songwriting sister act Waking Aurora, headed up by twin sisters and four-time Grammy Award nominees, Jennifer & Sarah Ray, are asking for your support for their official USA launch in early 2013! 

At the 2010 Grammy Awards, Sisters Jennifer & Sarah Ray (then known as the NYC duo Inventing Eve) were nominated in four categories for their song “Beautiful By My Scars” (2009 CD, Stumbling Toward Destiny).

Now under the management of the infamous multi-platinum British producer Robin Millar of Sade and Fine Young Cannibals, and CJ Gagne at Trifecta Music Group, this dynamic sister act is ready to launch officially, stateside! 

This past year has been spent in the studio together with Millar and accomplished Oasis and Noel Gallagher producer Paul Stacey. A groundbreaking new album has been written and recorded under the artistic direction and production of Millar and Stacey. This album will reveal a more organic, socially-aware, vulnerable and grown-up side of this duo - a true reflection of their journey from Inventing Eve to Waking Aurora.

Now, fans are eager for Jennifer and Sarah’s return to the USA. January 2013 will mark the return of this accomplished sister act to New York City, for the Trifecta Music Group major US launch of Waking Aurora. 

What We Need & What You Get

Here is a basic breakdown of where your contribution will be used:

  • Your enthusiastic financial support will contribute toward the final production, promotion and release of the much-anticipated debut album of Waking Aurora!  Also on the horizon: special television appearances, exclusive radio interviews and a multi-city US tour!  Join the movement and help to awaken Aurora!
  • We have several unique perks available for donors of varying amounts!
  • Of course we would love to meet our financial goal and with the help of our friends, family, supporters and fans, it’s certainly reachable. Should we fall short, every penny donated will still go toward bringing our music directly to you!

The Impact

There are several chartiable causes which are dear to our hearts (International Justice Mission (IJM), Greenpeace, Save the Children, the CNN Freedom Project). If we reach our goal, we will be enabled to make a more valuable contribution toward bettering the state of our world.

We proved ourselves capable of acheiving success as Inventing Eve.  As Waking Aurora, we want to set the bar even higher.
