If you don't already know, I am a musician, playing gigs around Maui and growing more as a musician every day. A few months ago, a stranger left a note in my tip jar at a gig I play live music at every Thursday. Although I didn't see who it was, the note complimented my vocals, style and sound and left the information for an Austen Jux-Chandler and to contact him if I was ever looking to record... Well indeed I was and had been looking for an outlet to record my own music for quite sometime! I did a little research and found that Austen is an LA based producer, originally from the UK and has worked with some pretty big names, including Ed Sheeren, Lady Gaga, Florence and the Machine and even winning a Grammy for his work on Adele's latest album 25. You can imagine my surprise, excitement and terror to think I could possibly create music that could measure up to the aforementioned standards!
After putting my self doubt to the side I took a chance and met with Austen in LA this past December 2018. After a trial run recording a cover song, we found that we worked quite well together and after hearing his final work on the track I was convinced... I TRUST this person to help me create an album of my personal work.
This was a huge realization, and ignited my drive to bring my songwriting to the public, which has always been quite scary for me! However, knowing that my ideas and creativity are in good hands and will only be enhanced by Austen's mastery is a huge relief. People ask me where they can find my music nearly every gig and I always have to answer abashed, "Nowhere...yet!"
Well hopefully soon I can say "Everywhere soon!" because I have planned a trip to LA for the end of April to record an EP (4 track Album) with Austen's help. I am so thrilled and ready to take this leap! Sadly however, studio time ain't cheap. Would you be willing to help me fund the recording of my EP?
The funds I need would help cover the following: Travel to and from LA Studio time Production fees
I hope soon my tunes will be hitting your eardrums and stirring in your souls. Any little bit would be so appreciated and help this girl follow one of her biggest dreams! Thank you so much!!
