Thanks for being here! You guys know me as a singer and songwriter from NYC. I self-funded and released my first 2 EP’s, “Mantra” and “Winning Hand” and singles, and I’m excited to do it again, for my brand new record!
These past few years, I’ve been passionately inspired, writing numerous songs that flow from my pure love of music. Soulful power ballad “Overwhelmed,” self-empowered “Pet,” anthemic rock n’ roll joy of “Freedom,” and poetic “Chelsea Summer Nights” express my artistic vision. I honestly feel so deeply excited about these new songs and can’t wait for you to hear them!
I’m happy to be an independent artist, which means I have full creative freedom, but I also need to fund everything myself: recording, mixing, mastering, pressing, website, pr, everything! This is where I need your help.
Thanks to PledgeMusic, I feel lucky to have an opportunity where you and I together, can make this record! YOU are my brand new team! (Definitely a generous and good-looking team, I do say).
How does this work?
1. PLEDGE With your pledge of any of the exclusives below, you’ll receive abundant gifts and interactive experiences I’ve never made available or done before, automatically get a digital download of the record, and unlock special behind-the-scenes UPDATES! As I record in the studio for the next few months, I’ll share little glimpses of magic from my creative process…videos, photos, mp3’s…and an early release of my new music, so you can be the FIRST to hear it! The goal is to show you how much I appreciate your support, and I’d love to do that in person when possible.
2. When we reach 100% of my campaign goal, a portion of the pledges will go to the Lionheart Foundation, a wonderful charity that brings love and healing into the world. Gorgeous.
Let’s see what we can do? Please PLEDGE what you can, and tell everyone you know! I have plans to start recording later this year, and I really need your help to make this happen. Together, we can make what I believe will be my absolute best record yet! :)
Thank you thank you THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I look forward to sharing this journey with you, and genuinely appreciate you pledging!
With great love and appreciation!
“Lay with me rock n roll beauty. Sing to me of Bobby McGee. Touch me like there is redemption. The more pleasure the more we are free.
There are no promises at night. But there’s eternity within your light.”
-Chelsea Summer Nights
