Leah's New Album!
my name is Leah Barley, I'm a bluesy-folk singer/songwriter based in Vancouver, B.C.
I'm raising funds to create my third EP. This EP will have five original songs that I've written featuring five amazing local musicians (vocals, banjo, guitar, viola, stand-up bass, and drums).
I'll be working with local producer Cody Taylor at Fiend Recordings, hiring an amazing visual artist (who just happens to be my sister) and having physical CDs created.
If you'd like to contribute and pre-purchase this album click an amount on the side bar to support making this dream of mine come true!
In January I launched a crowd funding campaign to raise funds to create my first full length album "Time". With the intention of a 10 song album and dedicating it in memory of my friend Brea who passed away in 2013, I would have needed to raise $10,000.
A couple weeks into the campaign I got news from my family in Ontario that my Grandfather wasn't doing well. Within a week he had passed away and I was on a plane to Toronto.
Needless to say, my energy went towards being with my family and my campaign was neglected.
Because of the platform I was using, if I didn't hit my goal I would not receive any of the funds raised, which is why I have created a GoFundMe campaign.
With that said, I've decided to cut my goal in half to $5,000 and create an EP with 4 or 5 songs. The money will be going towards recording, mixing, and mastering the album, paying at the musicians for their time, as well as the graphic designer, and making physical copies.
Making this album is an absolute dream as I've been working on some of these songs for almost three years.
Your support means the world to me and I will forever be grateful from the bottom of my heart.
"Mister Brown" live (with John & Ross)
the CDs have been printed, the party has been had, and the boys and I are leaving for tour October 4th!
