Help Genevieve finish her album!

$2,415 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 49 people in 8 months
Hello!

I have been attempting to record my first E.P.  for over a year, now.  There has been adventure & fun with incredible musicians all over the globe, but in the end--to have a real product worth offering up to the public (one that truly showcases the music as it should be)--there HAS to be funding...

I have had the incredible fortune to align myself with some phenomenal musicians & have been introduced to a wonderful recording artist (who genuinely loves my music). Up til now I have been offering work-trade & what compensation my small pockets will allow...but we have finally hit the point where my limited resources just can’t cover all of it. Just covering basic recording costs will run anywhere from $1500-2500...that’s before I pay the musicians anything & that's just for an E.P. (not even a full length album) & believe me when I say i’m getting a helluva deal. We are also on a very, very tight schedule.

My hope is that, by allowing those who are interested to pre-order the album (or donate some extra, if you believe in this adventure & have the resources to do so), we can make something incredible to offer you all & I can pay (even a tiny sum) to these incredibly hard-working artists. If you choose to PREORDER your copy now ($5-10, sliding scale), you are acting as an integral part of it’s creation—this album LITERALLY cannot happen without you. By supporting us in this process, you are directly contributing to the livelihood of independent, professional artists & musicians.

Also, should you choose to donate more than the price of the album, know this...

PERKS

- $5 to 10 gets you a copy of the album.

- $15 to 45 gets you the album + a hidden track.

- $50+ gets you the above plus a hand-written booklet of the lyrics + a bit of history regarding the songs & original artwork.

Thank you for your time!

Sincerely,
~ Genevieve (aka Juniper & the Wolf)

Hello, my dear friends!

I wanted to check in with you all again. :) The editing process for this album has been slow (obviously), but the truth is--for better or worse--I am cursed with being one of those people who cannot let something go until it's perfect. Editing also takes far longer than I ever imagined...not to mention I have been busily traveling through Europe, playing open mics & gigs, networking & building ties with other incredible musicians from all over the world--and have been receiving so much more success & kindness then I ever thought possible. All this, in between bouts of folkloric research, editing podcast episodes & writing blog posts for wewhomove.org.

However, things have been coming along (mostly) smoothly, if not speedily & (while there is still quite a bit to finish) an end is in sight! This rest of this year finds me heading back to the states (on the East Coast), where I will be spending the winter locked away in a cabin/farmstead (no joke) in the woods, busily scurrying away to finish not only this album, but a few other mysterious endeavors as well! (All of which will be happily shared with you, here). While locked away, I will also be setting up & planning out a 3-month US/Canadian tour!

I cannot wait to share this & all I have been working on with you & I look forward to seeing you while on tour!

In the meantime, I am wondering how many of you would be interested in other recordings--live bits from gigs, original demo arrangements of the tracks from before the start of this album, snippets of jam sessions with the musicians, etc. I would love to compile a list of donors who would be interested in the un-finished project as well as the finished project. If you are one of those, send me a message & I will send you a handful of things I have been working on in the meantime... :)

As usual, I CANNOT thank you enough for your support in my first musical endeavor & for the unbelievable amount of work that has been put in by Bret Levick Music & the entire team of musicians who have worked on this with me. Truly.

Hello from the Wild North!

We are well into the editing phase now and as I journey on the road, studying music & dances, I am spending most of my days wading (neck deep) through violin tracks, drum tracks, baselines, vocals...you name it. In traditional Genevieve fashion, I was more than a bit overly ambitions in my release date...but good work takes time. At this point, I think we are looking (more realistically) at a November release date, but in the meantime, check out my weekly folk song videos at wewhomove.org/music & a whole lotta other stuff as well! As usual, I have also begun a number of other minor musical adventures (as if all this wasn't enough), so there may be some extra surprises for everyone who donated, by the time the album is done...

I want to thank every single one of you again for all of your belief & support in my music. It means the world to me...and I want to say thank you once again to Bret & the musicians for bending over backwards to make this happen, especially on such a small budget.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. <3
