Project Description

I quit my job last fall to start writing this album. It's been on my bucket list for several years now to release an album and IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING. 

My mission is to be authentic and vulnerable in releasing a collection of songs that were written from a real place. I hope that you will find YOUR song on the album that speaks to you the way each of these songs have spoken to me. They were each written and chosen intentionally to be a part of the album. 

My goal is to raise at least $10,000 to recoup part of the cost of creating this album. If we raise $12k, I will be able to host a release show, and If we raise $15k, I will be able to release a music video for one of the songs on the album. As of now I am an independent artist, which means I have no record label or publisher to fund this album. The cost adds up with studio time, mastering, promotion, marketing, copyright, distribution, and compensation for my team members, amongst other things. In supporting me, you will not only be contributing to the release of this project but you will also be providing for other independent musicians and freelancers who I have been working with during the last few months. My team includes all of the musicians, my producer and engineer, my photographer, videographer, mastering engineer, campaign manager, and MYSELF. 

THANK YOU for making this album, my dream, a reality. I appreciate you more than you know and I hope you enjoy listening to the final product! The album is set to release in October! Please feel free to share this campaign with friends or family and if you'd like to stay updated on album details, follow me on social media. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

 

With love,

Zoe

The Campaign FAQs

I want to purchase more than one reward. Can I do that?

Absolutely! You are able to select and add multiple rewards to your cart.

I just want to contribute, and not purchase a reward. What do I do?

The first reward listed is Monetary Option. Select this reward, type in the amount you'd like to contribute, and that amount will be added to fund.

I want a certain reward, but I'd like to contribute more than the reward price. What do I do?

Select the reward you would like to purchase, and then select the "Monetary Option" reward and fill in the additional amount you would like to contribute.

What types of payment do you accept?

Paypal will be accepted.  Please let me know if Paypal is not an option for you and we will find another solution!

When will your album be released?

We are in the final mixing stage of the album and it is set to release mid-October! Follow me on social media to stay updated on shows, merchandise, and more release information! 

Why $10,000?

Making an album requires writing each of the songs, booking studio time, hiring a producer, engineer, musicians, and a mastering engineer. It also takes a lot of time to plan everything out. After several months of recording and producing the songs, more time and money go into marketing, promotion, distribution, photography, videography, merchandise, and more. 

A minimum of $10,000 will help to cover almost half of the cost to make this album.
