Recording AVDYSH debut album

Donation protected
Hello! My name is Kateryna Avdysh and I’m here to launch a fundraising campaign for my debut album.

About myself
I’m a singer and composer, the artist bursting with energy, the creator, who manages and a woman who is not afraid to dream and go against the flow.

There were times when my ideas collided with harsh reality:
  • launching a project during COVID
  • a painful breakup with the first band
  • parting ways with the second one due to a full-scale war happening at my home
  • dreaming about the album amid moving to another country and meeting new people and new culture

It was tough, but this significant experience has left its mark on my music, bringing a new depth, strength, and power.

Now, I'm fully prepared. I see everything in a different way and am happy that this moment is happening right now. Not a year or two ago.

About the album
The album is a reflection of various emotional states that each of us has experienced. It shows us happiness and pain, anger and acceptance, joy and anguish. What's intriguing is the common thread running through the entire album, represented by the word 'home', which can be replaced with 'love,' 'care,' 'reality,' 'soul,' and more.

The name of the album will remain a surprise, even to me. I plan to choose its name as soon as I can listen to the final, studio recorded version in one breath. What I can say for now is that you’re going to meet new Kateryna, who can be unexpected sometimes (most of the time).

As you may already know, I am an independent artist. And now I'm searching for creative individuals to join my team.

If you're unable to contribute financially but are good in management, PR, photography, or booking, please don't hesitate to reach out to us here .

Also, if you’re a company, who wants to discuss the conditions of a special partnership (or exclusive sponsorship) - please, write to us too.

More details
Last year, I considered launching a campaign with the assistance of a friend, but it came to an early end as two companies decided to support my upcoming singles, 'O meu mar' and 'Hrytsyu'.

  • Special thanks are going to the representatives of 'AJLVAZ' (António Vaz) and 'Villa Saudade - sustainable living' (Fernando Camacho).
  • I'd also like to express my gratitude to Diogo Vilhena, the music video director, Chris Greevink, the editor, Alex Psaroudakis, the mastering engineer, and Charlie Mancini, the mixing engineer and a steadfast supporter of the project. Without them, these recordings would not have been seen or heard at all.

This time, I hope to be fortunate enough to connect with more wonderful individuals along the way. You can show your support through donations, sharing on your social media, offering suggestions, or sharing kind words. I’ll deeply appreciate every form of your support!

Why might the support of this project be worthy?
The project itself has a Ukrainian soul, but linguistically, our songs are not only in Ukrainian but also in English, making them accessible to international communities. Additionally, one of the compositions will be in Portuguese.

In my album, I plan to incorporate the sounds of a Ukrainian traditional instrument called the bandura, involve specialists from my country and enhance it with collaboration from Portuguese voices and hands of extremely talented musicians from here.

The reasons why I want to do it are:
  • to create bridges between talents, who deserve more attention
  • to show that borders and distance are not the issue
  • to connect my home with the place I live in now

The indicated amount is an approximate estimate. When we surpass this goal, it will provide us with additional opportunities to invest in new content.

The money will be spent on:
  • recording, mixing, mastering of the songs (3500 Eur, not including fees for musicians)
  • music video, that's going to be recorded in Ukraine (5000 Eur)
  • artwork
  • publishing and sharing with a help of PR specialists (2000 Eur)

Please note that all financial transactions following the fundraising campaign and any updates will be posted on my Instagram.

So… stay tuned!

We believe that even the smallest contributions can make a significant impact. Every Euro matters and ‘too small’ donations don’t really exist. We will keep you informed about the progress of our fundraising campaign through our social media channels, so you can see how your donations are contributing to something really meaningful.

Thank you and let's get it started!
