I would like to record a 10 track album, hold an album release gig and follow up with gigs in as many venues as possible that will have me.
At the end of it I intend to donate 30% of the profit from cd sales to Change Your World movement - they work closely with Tenaganita, Suka Society and Agape Restoration Centre, and aims to help those who are victims of abuse, modern day slavery and human trafficking.
I am a music graduate and songwriting has always topped the list in my book. I released an E.P. titled Spring Cleaning a year after graduation, and after that it dwindled to sporadic dabbling. I had a lot of trouble believing that being a successful songwriter is something achievable, so for a long time I did not take it too seriously. However the desire never died and the voices in my head refused to shut up. After many pity parties I came to realize I have to just go forth (pardon the pun) despite of fear as nobody can chase my dreams for me. So here I am, just recently venturing into the life of a freelance musician - teaching, singing for weddings, gigging my originals, and trying to complete 3 more songs by December to have enough material for a good album.
How I Plan To Go Forth
The funds provided by this campaign will go into
i) the making of the album - some I could complete with my own resources, but the rest will have to be recorded in a studio, hiring musicians, an audio engineer for the recording sessions, mixing and mastering the tracks.
ii) Printing and distributing
iii) Album artwork
iv) Hosting a release gig (renting place, renting equipment, hiring live sound engineer, ushers)
