Mariama Whyte's New Album!!!

Raised by 88 people in 28 months
Hey there! I'm Mariama Whyte, an independent recording artist/actress/educator from Cleveland, OH and I'm excited to invite you to my funding campaign to help me complete my new full length album, "Hey U It's Me."

In these challenging times we are living in,  it is so important for me that my music bring light and inspiration to what feels so heavy right now.  It is my hope that my vision for this album is realized and achieved with your help and support!!

As an independent artist, I released my debut 5-song EP, "Find Your Light" in 2010 as well as other singles throughout the years. It's been so great that my music has been so well-received in my hometown of Cleveland, OH and around the globe, and also getting radio play at local stations. One of the frequently asked questions I receive from supporters and fans is "When are you coming out with a full album? I want to hear more!" That is every artist's dream to hear those words. Well, I'm happy to say that I plan to release my new album this year...but I need your support to help me complete it!!

I have already recorded a few  songs for the album, which I LOVE!! The title track, "Hey U It's Me" that you hear in the video above is the fun opener of the album.  But this is just the beginning of the process of creating an album that I hope will reach the masses! I would be so thankful for your support to help me with the rest of the recording process and release it to the world!

To complete a full length album with high quality sound and collaborators, it takes a good amount of money. Your financial support will help with:

1. Producer/musician/collaborative artist fees
2. Studio fees
3. Mixing/Mastering
4. Album Artwork
5. Marketing
6. CD packaging
7. Merchandise
8. Shipping

As you contribute, please remember to take a look at all of the reward levels and what you receive in exchange for choosing one of them! The rewards are really cool and I think you'll love them!!

I will be raising money until I reach my goal!!!


Last but not least, please SHARE with your social networks as well to help spread the word!!

I'm looking forward to getting back into the studio and completing "Hey U It's Me" with your help!! Stay tuned!

XOXO,
Mariama Whyte
