Hi, I’m Arsena! I’m a Charlotte-based singer-songwriter. I dedicated my life to making music full-time six years ago, and I am excited to embark upon the studio recording of my sophomore album, “Sleep Talking”!!!

Recording a full-length project is an incredibly exciting and vulnerable process, and I want you to join me!

One of the biggest surprises to my non-creative friends is the cost to record a professional album. There’s a lot that goes into making an album sound great and do more than collect dust on my hard drive. The funds from this campaign will be spent on:

-Studio Production (i.e. producer, musicians, tracking/studio time)
-Post-Production (i.e. mixing, mastering)
-CD Duplication (getting physical CDs made)
-Marketing/Promotions (release concert, social media marketing, photo/video shoot etc.)
-& Store Items (check below)

So as you can see, it’s important that this campaign in 100% Funded! I’m counting on your support so I’ve created some pre-order items you might find useful – CD’s, release concert tickets, one-of-a-kind vinyl records, house concerts, exclusive listening sessions, photo shoots, lots of things really – so you can support at the level that works best for you!

Your generosity is MUCH APPRECIATED.

Again, I want you to be apart of the process so check back here regularly for:

-Exclusive behind the scenes footage
-Video Blogs + Updates
-& More!

Excited beyond words,
Arsena
