Help Moscow Apartment finish our EP

$2,078 of $3,000 goal

Created June 7, 2017


We are Brighid & Pascale. We met a long time ago (5 & 6 years old) as members of the Viva Youth Singers and we became  fast friends. We did several Nutcracker contracts for the National Ballet and sang at The Four Seasons Centre. In between performances we hung out at The Rex and listened to jazz. When Brighid left the choir to focus on violin and guitar, we drifted apart and came back together 6 months ago through our mutual love of songwriting and Joni Mitchell.

We started performing together in January and officially became a duo (Moscow Apartment) in February. In March we started recording some of our songs with Michael Smith (who also happens to be one of Brighid's Dads) and 

auditioned for a youth discoveries showcase spot at the Summerfolk Festival.  We won, which probably surprised us more than anyone else there. We were so lucky to get a spot at the festival *and* also got to meet the amazing Samantha Martin who has taken us under her wing.  We spent a day recording two more songs at Pacha Sounds with Guillermo Subauste and Samantha Martin producing. We are so proud of all six songs. We have already had one played on CBC and another will be this weekend. We have had some positive reviews on music blogs:   http://ridethetempo.com/2017/06/06/listen-moscow-apartment/   &  http://www.adobeandteardrops.com/2017/05/music-roundup_30.html .  We have a bunch of shows coming up including The Open Tuning Festival, Waterstock, The Junction Music Festival, The Winnipeg Folk Festival and Summerfolk. 

UPDATE: We were so happy to have reached our goal and to have had the mixing and mastering as well as most of the production covered. We now have the luck and good fortune to work with one of the best publicists in Canada so we are extending the Go Fund Me in case anyone else out there is feeling generous and giving. Thank you everyone.

We would love to be able to get the mixing of the new tracks finished and master all 5 tracks as well as manufacture the CDs before we head out on the road and we would love whatever help we can get. Really any money you can provide is helpful and very appreciated. We know there are many worthy causes out there and feel very blessed that we have a supportive network to reach out to!  Any donations over $20 will get you an advanced hard copy of the EP and over $30 will get you a CD and on the guest list for our EP launch party in October.

With much gratitude and thanks,

B & P

We are very sorry we have been so quiet but we have a lot to share! Our EP is coming out in less than a week. Many of you have received you physical CDs but there are some we haven't seen or don't have addresses for so please send us your contact info so we can get the CDs to you. We also want to make sure all donars who contributed more than 30.00 get on the guest list for our likely to sell out launch party on Saturday. Please let us know (if you haven't already) if you are coming and we will make sure your name is there. We have to buy some tickets for our guest list (we are exceeding the maximum for Burdock between media and Go Fund Me donors) so we are trying to get a handle on how many of you are coming! We hope to see as many of you there as possible. We are really excited about this show. You can email brighidfrymusic@gmail.com with your RSVP. We also recommend that if you are bringing friends or family that you get tickets sooner than later because we are selling a LOT of advance tix.

We also have some very exciting news! We have been nominated for both a a TIMA (Toronto Independent Music Award) AND a CFMA (Canadian Folk Music Award) . CBC has been very kind to us and our video is getting a lot of views.

We could not have done this without your generous support and we are incredibly grateful. Thank you so much! Hope to see you on Saturday and remember to send us your address and yay or nay for the guest list.

Thanks everyone for all you amazing support. We are more than halfway there. I had to update the campaign and designate Kim as the recipient because we are underage. She is paying the engineer and the duplication business so it makes the most sense.

We played twice this weekend (Roncy Rocks and at Gate 403). We had an amazing response to our music and it was super exciting. We have heard the mixes and this EP is going to sound *amazing*!

We also got to meet Danny Michel on Saturday. We are on the same bill as him a couple of times this summer and were so inspired by his wonderful show.

Wow! We are so moved and humbled by all the support! Friends, family and music lovers have been so incredibly generous. We are happy to report that are songs are mixed and will be mastered soon. We have a venue booked our EP launch (September 30th) and are busily getting ready for a lot of festivals over the next month. I am including a clip from our show at Waterstock this past weekend where we got to play on the same bill as Jim Cuddy, Oh Susanna, Harrow Fair, Digging Roots and Reuban and the Dark amongst others. If we can get to our goal, we will have some money to produce advance copies for our donors and to sell at festivals and to hire a publicist and get our music into more people's hands. Please help if you can (small donations are welcome) and feel free to spread the word. Thanks to everyone who has shared our fundraiser and said such kind things about our project. We won't disappoint. The mixed sound *amazing* and we know this is going to be a very special record.
