Giselle Schiller's Debut EP (Extended Play)

Donation protected




Hi everyone, my name is Giselle Schiller. I want to share my story with you all and ask for your help. As my college career is coming to a close I have been given the opportunity to record and release my first EP (extended play). The project is all being organized independently with friends and colleagues.

A little bit about me- I started writing and producing songs at the age of 10 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Starting like most of us producers do with Garage Band. Fast forward 11 years... I applied early action for college, got in, received the World Tour and Contemporary Writing Scholarships, and this May I will be graduating from Berklee College of Music with a major in Contemporary Writing and Production. Over the years at Berklee, I have scored, yelled at Finale too many times, scored, performed, collaborated, scored, cried, and got kicked out of the dorms. Because of covid. Im not that crazy.

In 2020, I was in Albuquerque, New Mexico living with my friend and her mom. I couldn't go back home to Brazil unfortunately during this time. During the lockdown, I began to record and started to produce my first release "Harrison". I finished the song and released it while I was back in Massachusetts living with another friend that same year. In 2021 I released my second single "Then Some" while Berklee was doing hybrid classes. I love these two songs so much, it shows how much I have grown as a musician. At the beginning of 2022, I got together with three classmates and started a band to perform my songs live. We started recording a couple in studios instead of just myself in my room, and one of my teachers took an interest in my songs. Over time they decided to help me record, mix, and release an EP! We picked 8 songs that need to be, recorded, produced, and marketed. I've come here to ask your help to be a part of this project. The funds will go towards 20h of studio time, paying players, mastering, and marketing the EP. Now I know some of my friends and family reading this, and hopefully some very nice strangers too, don't know what goes into marketing an EP. So, I will do a very quick crash course.

So please help me, my session players, the band, my teacher, friends, family, and the very nice stranger reading this to be a part of our EP.
