Stevie Lynne - Second Album
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
It is with music that I choose to speak. To speak out loud my desire for unity without uniformity and to make connections across barriers. Pain, love, joy, anger, hatred and loss are all universal concepts expressed in a multitude of ways. Music is articulation of people’s emotions, thoughts, and feelings unadulterated by a need for conformity.
‘We Are the People’ is the first song that I wrote for my next album. It had been my passion project after my first album, Liars, debuted. When I realized what a significant impact it had on individuals suffering from abuse, depression, suicide and their struggle to recovery, I decided to delve deeper into societal pain, the suffering that separation and division brings. It started with writing the very first line “so, this is hell” and ended with a triumphant “we are the people and we are better than this”.
And now I want to continue my mission to use music as the language of inspiration, a voice of hope in times of adversity and times of victory. Whether the battle be with oneself or with the world, music can find its way through a thousand walls. And my hope is that it finds its way to you.
My team and I are currently looking for sponsors and contributors who would be willing to help us reach our goals. The last album I recorded totaled an estimated $10,000 of my own person funds over the course of two years. I estimate that this second project will require the same, if not more, considering that I have already contributed the finances to two of the ten songs listed for release on the album and recording/producing budgets have increased. The costs associated include recording studio fees, grand piano rentals, instrumentalist support, photography and registration/production fees. Corporate sponsors will be credited for their participation and private donations greater than $50.00 will receive a signed copy of the CD after production.
I cannot express my gratitude enough for your support, monetary and otherwise. Thank you, lovelies, for being my inspiration and my motivation.
