Also, check out this special video and original song dedicated to a dear friend who gave a 'Still Rolling' donation! The song is called 'Hey Now' and I am joined by the amazing Jennie Harney! Lots of love everyone : )
Today is the DAY!! We are shooting my second music video in Hoboken, NJ and I'm so thrilled! The creative team, the dancers, and the crew are top notch and I couldn't be prouder of the people involved with this project.
Although I only raised half of the desired goal, your donations, support, and excitement made it possible to make these videos a reality.
AND, there is still time to donate! Any further donations will go towards food costs, promotional materials, and the final editing process.
This journey has been a joy, a challenge, and something I've always dreamed of doing! THANK YOU!!
Look out for some sneak peak pictures, and an announcement of when the singles and videos will be available, as well as the official release party.
Hey everyone! We received the final cut to my first music video and it is AMAZING! We are now moving into pre-production for the second music video! Wahoo! Thank you to everyone who donated to make the first music video possible. Your generosity has made a dream come true! I can't wait until we officially release it. So stay tuned!
I know it's been some time since an update but just wanted to let you know, I and my team are hard at work in post-production for my first music video! We are getting so close, and I can't wait to release it! Stay tuned. Also, we still need to raise funds to do the second music video. So keep checking back and seeing what we're up to. Lots of love!
A week from today and we start filming for my first music video! Thank you all so much for continuing to donate, share, and support! Keep looking out for behind the scenes and all that jazz : ) I'm stoked!
So excited to say that the 2,000 dollar mark has been reached! Very cool and thank you to everyone who is sharing, liking, facebooking, tweeting, and emailing people about this project. Stay tuned for some more news!
I've met, worked with, and befriended so many people since moving to NYC, that it's been such an exciting time. And throughout it all, there's been someone who's always encouraged, supported, and helped me to press forward. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKJ4OL4Xouk
My first summer in NY, I auditioned for a new musical called Children of God where I met, who is now, my Producer and Manager of my debut singles and "˜Premiere Music Videos'. Little did I know that this small show, would start a friendship that has blossomed into a mentorship and working relationship. CB and I have collaborated together on over 7 productions, sang/performed all around the NYC area, and it's been a blessing!
Check him and his company out at Euphonixs, Inc ( www.euphonixs.com). He's always doing something exciting, and I'm so happy to be working with him on this project! Thank you CB!
Hey everyone! My best friend and generous backer of my 'Premiere Music Videos' created a new dance app called On Point Dance. It's fantastic and I'm so excited that it is finally available to the public.
We've been talking about our creative endeavors and watching him work through this project, has inspired me in so many ways. We've been celebrating this week, and it's revving me up to when we can all celebrate the release of my music videos. Wahoo!
PLEASE HELP ME to raise the remaining 60 percent, by donating today! Also, don't forget to download On Point Dance the ultimate dance app!
Over 100 DP's, Cinematographers, and Film Companies have submitted to work on my first music video. Holy moly! Lots of work to do and still working to raise another 3,135 dollars. Getting closer and closer! Pray a brain vessel doesn't pop...
To say I was excited was an understatement. The scene is absolutely gorgeous and the song "˜A Thousand and One Nights' is a tune that will stick in your head for days. It was my first national television experience, and to be surrounded by that level, and talent is something that truly inspired me.
About two months later, I realized that it was time to get serious about my music. I had always wanted to professionally record my songs, and I knew that if I had the opportunity to dance on screen again, I would do it! Especially if I could sing as well! So with the encouragement of my manager/mentor, we decided to have a listening party for a couple guests. I played 6 of my original songs. Some new, and some old. Tunes that I felt could have an impact, told a story, and had the greatest potential.
With their feedback, encouragement, and honesty, it was evident that "˜Crazy Girl' and "˜Walk Out The Door' were the ones to record. Yet, it was a hard decision. Living a performer's life from pay check to pay check, presented a challenge. But a challenge I was determined to overcome. As a result things fell into place. I found a performance group called Applause NYC who hired me right away, Broadway Dance Center called and asked me to teach Irish Dance lessons for the summer, I was asked to perform in Al Blackstone's show "˜Happy We'll Be' and then I booked my first Off Broadway Workshop "˜One For My Baby'. The doors for this to work out financially opened wide. I had the finances to cover all aspects of recording, arranging, mixing, mastering, and the singles came out better than I ever could've imagined. Then it was time to start preparing for the music videos.
As a result, in October I launched my GoFundMe page. I had never fundraised before and I did not know what to expect. Well...it has been awesome! To be shown such generosity by friends, family, fans, and colleagues in such a public way, is a wonderful blessing. Presently, with the money that has been raised, the countless hours of catering, and the pennies I've saved over the past 9 months my team and I are in the process of talking with Videographers, Film Companies, and other aspects of pre- production for the videos. The response to the music, and our vision has been staggering. People who I've never met, have been so excited to potentially be a part of this project.
Since I've made that decision to step out in faith last April, I've learned so much about music, the business, and what it means to follow your dreams. I've learned what it is to sacrifice, persevere, and continue on when the road was tough, or didn't present a picture perfect outcome. Although it's still a challenge financially, I won't lose faith.
When you accomplish a dream, whether big or small, it's awesome. Dancing on SMASH was a moment when I felt my hard work paid off. It was one scene, and one gig, that brought so much joy. Joy that encouraged me to believe in this vision. A year ago I never thought I'd have this opportunity. Now I do. How cool is that?!
I wanted to update you all and let you know that we are hard at work with the videos!
I'll be posting fun updates, and information so you can see everything that is happening! There is still a ways to go to the 5,000 dollar mark so throughout the production process my GoFundMe Site will remain open! I know many of you have still expressed interest in donating and there is still time! I'm hoping, praying, and believing that with your help the 5,000 dollar mark can be reached!
Thank you so much to those of you, who have donated. You've made this past years, Thanksgiving and Christmas so joyful. Every time someone gives I feel like I've won the lottery. So thank you for giving me that feeling 30 times over the past two months. Your love and support is driving me forward!
Lastly, please help me to spread the word about my 'Premiere Music Videos' through Facbeook, Twitter, Email, Instagram, Youtube, etc., anything helps!
Thank you everyone and look out for the next update!

"I was asked to arrange and produce a track "Crazy Girl" for Nathan Lucrezio. All I can say is Smokin! The track is hot. I played most instruments and brought in a couple of friends to help. My friend Veit Renn mixed it. You may know Veit from his NSync and Backstreet work. I could not have been more pleased. Nathan is now raising funds to do a video. Check out his post, you'll get a chance to hear a little of the track. I think you'll like it."
"Check out Nathan Lucrezio's donation page. Nathan is an amazing singer who was one of the first clients to record in our new studio, "The Patio". Please share your support!"
I wanted to share a video with you of me dancing with a group called Park Jam led by Chris Naish at Washington Square Park in NYC. This was another way for me to raise some money for the videos and it was thrilling! You'll catch me doing some fun moves, as well as get a look at the other dancers Chris and Aska. They are amazing. Enjoy!
Just want to update all of you and say a huge thank you to the people who have donated so far! It truly means so much!
Further, I'm sitting here in Jersey waiting for the power to come back on so I along with millions of others affected by Hurricane Sandy can get back to work. Thank you to those who have reached out to see how things turned out, my household is all good and safe. Throughout this I'm realizing just how much technology plays a role in our lives and I have to say the little time away from my phone and computer is a reality check. A forced rest from the daily NYC grind.
I was hoping to give you more info on the project, a new video, and other goodies but with the power out for almost two days it's been hard. So I will be in touch with more soon, and please continue to help me make these videos possible. Whether its five dollars or 100 dollars, every donation counts. Lots of love to all and especially my family, friends, coworkers and others affected by the storm. Stay safe and ill be thinking of you.
Nathan Lucrezio here and welcome to my GoFundMe Page for my 'Double Music Video Feature'. For the first time I had the opportunity to professionally produce and record two of my original songs. I'm proud to announce that 'Crazy Girl' and 'Walk Out The Door' will be released as my debut singles! Words can't describe how excited I am to share these songs with the public. They are SO GOOD! We have created such great work in the studio that I am thrilled to bring them to life on the screen. This is where your help will be greatly appreciated but before we address that let me tell you about my singles. First there's 'Crazy Girl'. It's that hit pop song with a sick beat. Produced and arranged by the outstanding Larry McRae and his team, this song will make you want to get up and dance. Perfect for the clubs, a party, the gym, or jamming in the car; it has that pump, and you'll be singing the hook all day. The second song is 'Walk Out The Door' produced and beautifully arranged by Phil Hamilton. When I first heard his arrangement I was moved, and couldn't wait to get into the studio! It's that slow R&B ballad that everybody can relate to. It's about a relationship and the moment you decide whether you're going to walk out the door or stay with that person. Lastly, these singles would not have been possible if it wasn't for my good friend, mentor, and main producer CB Murray. His encouragement and support has been instrumental to this whole undertaking. Now, I'm asking for your support as I continue the next phase of this project.
Any contributions, or donations you would be willing to give will help me in creating my premiere music videos. Check out the incentives above as I have some great gifts to give away. Also, I will be posting updates, behind the scenes video, interviews, and more to keep you informed as the process goes on. Once again, thank you so much in advance for your generous givings and I can't wait to get started! Lots of love!
Sincerely, Nathan Lucrezio
