Lauren Lucille Album Fundraiser

£8,716 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 175 people in 4 months
Created September 12, 2018
Hey everyone!
(Click READ MORE for those of you on mobile devices and you can read all about it and see what's up for grabs!)

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

Hello Everyone!!!

Sorry for not updating earlier! After the recording finished, I got sick, was in Germany singing, got sick again, did a gig and hurt my voice and basically haven't worked much for 2 weeks while recovering!! I'm better than ever now and have a lot to look forward to over Christmas and the new year so I'm really happy about that!

I have a little present for you!

A dropbox file has been sent to you in a separate message!

This is the jazz album I recorded in February and December in Germany. A lot of fun and even has one of my new originals that happens to be a Christmas song (Things For Christmas)!

This un-released album is for everyone who donated - as a thank you and a sorry it's taking a while to release my original studio album that you have so kindly and lovingly contributed to! It probably won't be ready til at least February!!

So, enjoy this for now! I recorded it with great swing musicians in Germany - more details in the dropbox file!

Hope you can all download the songs fine. Let me know if you have any trouble. (email me here: laurenlucillemusic@gmail.com)

Also for those of you who donated £25 or more - please expect something in the mail from me! (Some of you I will give in person in London when I see you!)

So - Happy Christmas, happy new year, I hope you had a great year - even if it was hard, hopefully you grew and learned something (it was a hard and good year at the same time for me!) and can have a fresh start in 2019. Please stay in touch!

Lots and lots of love,
Lauren xoxoox

Here's a friend of mine dancing in Germany to one of the tracks - All Of Me:

Hello wonderful people!!

Thank you thank you thank you again for supporting me the way you are. I don't take it for granted for a second. I'm overwhelmed at the amount of support I'm receiving. Feel free to share this campaign/my music!

I only have 3 days to go in the studio Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday this week. I already feel sad that it's going to be over - and what needs to start is the hard work of looking for the best avenues of releasing it - including managers, agents, tour managers etc....

Wish me luck and send good vibes!

This campaign is going to stay open - there's no end date! However - I need another £500 or so to pay the bill asap, and at the end of November I'll need to pay for the other days we've done this month.

And it's worth every penny to me in so many ways.

Don't forget I have a blog too:

Thanks again and sending lots of love and peace. xoxo

Hey everyone!!
So today - 3rd of October - I had my first day of recording and it went really well! I was a little tired due to the early start, but completed one song - live - and it's gorgeous. We worked on some other songs as well and made a lot of progress. I could work on this music for a month straight!! But - we've booked 16 days over October/November - including mixing.. so we'll see how it goes! Check instagram and facebook for more photos!

I just want you to know I'm not just paying for an album here.... It's like an intensive course in creativity, writing on the spot, learning guitar and vocal parts quickly, lesson in music harmony, working with people, working in the studio and much more - he's one of the best, so I'm learning a hec of a lot already. Very exciting.

Bless you all and I'll let you know how it's going soon! xoxo
