UPDATE 11 MARCH
Firstly - The Single from the album came out on the weekend - here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEVq7fhFQxg
It's also on spotify - Be My Lover - Lauren Lucille
The album has been mastered, and the cover art is being done as I type. I will send all my donors a copy as soon as it's printed!
Thank you for being HERE on this lovely gofundme campaign page to see what I'm up to!
So..... here we go!
I've been wanting to record another album (or 3) for a few years now and all of a sudden it's happening - and with one of London's top producers Troy Miller!! (He's worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Laura Mvula, Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, Lianne la Havas, Roy Ayres and Chaka Khan to name a few)
We start on the 3rd of October and we'll be in for about 2 weeks over 2 months. I can't say when the album will be ready, but I'd say early 2019.
I'm really excited to sing in the studio again after many years, to share the full length, fully produced songs I've been writing for the past few years. I'm going to have some of London's finest musicians (award winning) playing and the songs we've chosen are a really interesting mix, so this album is going to be almost as much as a surprise to me as it is to you! I promise it'll be pretty good though!
I would just love it if you could help me achieve this huuuuge dream by pre-buying the album, or for more moolah you can have a concert in your home anywhere in the world or, come and join us in the studio to just hang - or/and sing/say/play something into the mic and it will end up on the final recording- with your name in the credits of course. If none of the incentives suit you - name your price and what you want - I'm sure I've missed something I can share/give with you!
Any questions, please ask, and if there's anything you'd like to help with besides the money part - let me know!
I am incredibly grateful to my fans (and friends and family) from all the years, and my new fans and friends - welcome!!
Sending so much love to you and hope to see you soon xoxox
