Hello!

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my PledgeMusic campaign! This album is a major life milestone that has been 30 years in the making. I’m also proud to be recording it independently, without the backing of a record label or industry executives. Over the past year, I came to the realization that in order to deliver the exact art I feel listener deserve, I needed to do things differently, from the songwriting to the melodies to the harmonies, to the production and the selection of the team I wanted around me.

Furthermore, the music industry is changing and I feel that you, as fans, hold the power and influence. You are the reason I am launching with PledgeMusic. I want to formally recognize and involve YOU, my loyal supporters, in both my career and my life. I’m not just “selling music,” I’m offering parts of my heart and soul.

All great endeavors require a lot of sacrifice and I am taking a leap of faith to do what I’m most passionate about. Through my music, I hope to convey emotions felt through facing my own mortality, experiencing love and loss, losing and finding faith, and living each day fully with passion.

Living each day with passion is something that stems from my life experiences facing challenges. I am incorporating a charity component to this campaign. The Johns Hopkins Division of Pediatric Oncology, where I was a patient for over 13 years, is near and dear to my heart and I want to give back to an organization that has given so much to me. They are a reason I am able to embark on this new journey. Together, we are also offering a handful of incredible options exclusively for PledgeMusic supporters.

With the help of my dear friend Tim of Tim Be Told, acting as producer, and a wonderful group of musician friends who will lend their talents, I hope to inspire, move, and challenge you with this music.

This album will be what you help make it and will rest in YOUR hands.

Not only is this debut album now available for pre-order, but you can also browse through the various options I’ve listed below. Not only will you get access to the album download, but you will also be provided with access to a steady stream of updates surrounding the release of this debut album including everything from exclusive videos, tracks, photos and more. For those who support, I hope to involve you in this experience!

Note: All prices include shipping and handling!

I’m so grateful for your support in this campaign and look forward to hearing from you as we work through the process of creating what I hope to be an amazing debut album.

With love and gratitude,
Jae

Come join me as my special guest as we spend a day at the annual Johns Hopkins Pediatric Oncology camp, Camp Sunrise. We’ll get a chance to spend time with 120 wonderful children. **

Camp Sunrise Camp Sunrise is a week-long, overnight summer camp held in early August in Maryland, for children who have been diagnosed with or have survived cancer. Campers are given the opportunity to establish strong peer relationships with the other children they can relate to that are going through the same experiences and feelings as they are with their cancer treatment. At Camp Sunrise, campers also gain independence from the regimen of cancer treatment, and enhance their self-confidence by trying new activities offered while attending the camp.

Established by the American Cancer Society in 1987, Camp Sunrise started with only seven campers. Today, Camp Sunrise is maintained and sponsored by Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Division of Pediatric Oncology.

**Note: You must make travel accommodations on your own to the campsite in Maryland. If you have prior questions or would prefer to try to work out travel, please email booking@jaejinmusic.com.
