Hello! My name's Vanessa Pottiger and I am currently raising funds for my first full-length studio album. The style of music I write is alternative-pop music - but it's really just music that makes you feel.
If you've never met me before, let me tell you a little bit about myself! I'm extremely passionate about helping others live a free and spirited existence, and I try to express that in everything I do. My first love is singing, but I also love playing and writing on the piano. I'm influenced by so many different genres - jazz, broadway, rap, soul, and rock, to name a few.
My songs are all about self-discovery, the meaning of deeply authentic love, and how self-expression leads to meaning. I've woven so much of my life experiences into this music - I know that my songs will help so many through their own experiences of pain, love and self-discovery.
My vision for my career is all about creating safe conversations for people to explore difficult topics, like abuse, addiction, depression, loneliness, grief and finding help in the midst of that. My hope is that my music will bring people into those conversations and into a community that loves and cares for them.
One of the ways I want to start those conversations, beyond writing and singing about them, is to begin a biweekly video and podcast series. I also want designated personnel at all of my live events who are trained to start these conversations, listen and help people get the resources and support they need.
I'm so excited to begin this journey, but the only way I can get my music and story out to people is with YOUR help!
The money raised from this campaign will go towards the production, design, and printing of this album, as well as a music video and video equipment.
Please join with me as I share my story and my heart through the powerful medium of music.
Your support means so much! Thank you!
UPDATE 7/15: Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has given to my campaign so far! Basically what you have funded is my first single "Sugar Don't Make Me Lie"! Money that was raised went towards paying my producer to produce, mix and master the single, five hours of studio time to track the vocals, the digital design of my single artwork, numerous fees associated with releasing music, and a music video! "Sugar Don't Make Me Lie" is available wherever music is streamed or sold!
