Three years ago, I organised a couple of shows in Kuala Lumpur and released a little unplugged CD of my songs to sell as part of my fundraiser to get to Nashville. By June 2012, I had raised just enough money to get there and my dad and I got to visit Nashville for the Country Music festival (CMA Fest). It was one of the most magical experiences I've had so far. I also got to perform at Hotel Indigo and meet so many inspiring people. I learnt so much from that short trip, and I felt that I have grown a in my songwriting as well.
This year, I plan to go to Nashville again. This time to attend workshops, promote my EP that is due for release in May of this year. I have also been working on two songs that are being produced by a well-known producer in Nashville which I hope to release soon.
While in Nashville, I hope to develop myself through performing at open mics and also songwriter rounds. I've got a ticket "try again next time" for Bluebird Cafe's open mic stuck on my bedroom wall that I intend to try for too. A few of the main events I want to attend while in Nashville, and hopefully get to perform at are : The Nashville Songwriters Festival, CMA Fest and Teen Hoot. It would be awesome if you could help me get there.
I plan to stay in Nashville for at least a month, and the money from your contributions will help cover:
Flight (to and from): $1700
Lodging, food and expenses: $1500
Local traveling and transportation $300
With each contribution to my "˜Ticket To Nashville' fund, you would get a copy of my album (and more) when it is finished. There will be 5 songs on my there which I had written in the past few years and I can't wait for you to hear it.
I am so grateful for all the support and encouragement I've been getting so far, and I'm grateful for the possibility of you helping me get to where I want to go.
Thank you for reading this, and I hope you have a lovely day :)
