The short version: I want to independently record, produce and digitally release my debut album (Molehills), but I need funding to be able to afford the recording equipment required to do so.
The long version: I am currently going through an incredibly painful break up; one that has not only uprooted my life, but also made me question my own worth. I want to take all of my pain and turn it into something good. I don't really have much going for me at the moment, and I need something that I can pour my energies into.
Although I am a capable musician, I can't take myself seriously with the equipment (or lack thereof) that I am currently using to create my music.
All I am asking for is enough to afford basic home recording equipment including:
- A Focusrite bundle (a mic, interface and studio headphones)
- An electric guitar (I am currently using an acoustic and an amp plugin. It sounds bad)
- The necessary cables, components and tools that I need for home recording
- Licensing, streaming and sales platforms that the album will be distributed through.
I do not need anything more than that.
Here is an example of my current sound, recorded with my phone: Fall Away
Imagine how much cooler it would be if I could recorded it properly :)
As I say in the campaign video, I will appreciate any and all help I can get.
