Album Journey with Asheida

$630 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 6 months
Created August 1, 2018

My crowdfunding with Youcaring got acquired by GoFundMe so here I am! I acknowledge/give thanks to my previous supporters/donors to the right:)

You've found yourself here and hope you'll join me on the journey.  I'm so excited to launch my first full album 2019! My hope is that this album inspires you. 

This album is a refined work of past and recent songs all enveloped with topics ranging from love, relationships, social and economical change. 

Late 2016 I applied to the Sound Recording Program through BC Creative. I was so happy to hear I was awarded with a grant of up to $8550.10 to go towards my album...

HOWEVER I had to complete my project AND personally invest 50% of it in order to 50% back. 

Perhaps this is where you or some lovely investors you know come in;)

It's been an intense rollercoaster at times, as I've had delays over half the year due to health.
I'm getting back on track but I do need your help. 

I've been moving forward with the album and with your support, I can finish and launch it.

I've personally invested $10, 910 and hope to receive that 50% from the grant by the end of this year.

It will help greatly to retain the other half to help with the next stage of the album release and campaign!

I've been recording at internationally known, Turtle Recording out in South Surrey. Known for recording many top artists all the way from Hans Zimmer, Pearl Jam to Sarah McLachlan.

Ways you can help seal the deal and get this album ready for take off! (launching 2019)

What I have personally invested so far: (Jan 2017 to Sept 2018 so far)

* Studio/Producing/Recording expenses    $7357
* Album Cover Design                                            $330

* Musician fees                                                           $2770

$5455  is 50% of my total expenditure which I am hoping to retain so I can do the following:

Hi all!

Lots of studio work over the summer. I completed my final reports for CreativeBC over September so that I can receive grant money that was awarded to me. By end of year I'll receive it and find out how much. Then, onwards to the mixing and mastering:) Stay tuned!
