Thank you for visiting my GoFundMe page!

My name is Tiki Black and I write and sing songs to empower us as human beings.

My first album "Out Of The Black" encouraged us to express our creative selves against fear and pain.

It won an Akademia award and nominated on Fatea Awards. It includes songs like Swollen, finalist at the John Lennon songwriting contest.

My new album continues into the life cycle. After our creative birth,  it explores the cut of the proverbial umbilical chord. It is about us emanticipating ourselves from emotional slavery. I have performed some of the songs around Europe including 3 hit singles:
- A GHOST OF ME or how losing our emotional homes feels like losing ourselves
- UNDER YOUR SPELL or how hard it is to part from the devil we know but that in our own time, we will and do
- THE OTHER WOMAN or how we blame things on others before emancipating to take our responsibilities.

I'd love to record the album and singles including some orchestral input, produce, mix, master, distribute, promote the album and I need your help for quality results.

There are so many rewards to thank you for your trust, support, and investment. Check them out and you can even suggest some (within reason). Your support makes a whole lot of difference to this work and I just want to thank you in advance for being part of this album's journey.

When you give any money at all, you get a personal thank you from yours truly. If you are ok with it, your name gets written on my website's fan wall. When you give £100 or more, your name gets a thank you in the liner notes of the new album!

I grew up with music supporting my understanding of the world and myself when there was no one to guide me. Music is my way to express my gratefulness and the need to feed the soul hungry for something beyond entertainment. My music would not be satisfied if it should merely entertain, it means to empower.

Je m'appelle Tiki Black et j'écris et chante des chansons pour nous rendre notre pouvoir en tant qu'êtres humains.

Mon premier album "Out Of The Black" nous encourageait à exprimer notre créativité malgré la peur et la douleur.

Il remporta le prix Akademia et fut nominé au prix Fatea. Il comprend des chansons comme Swollen, finaliste au concours de composition John Lennon Songwriting contest.

Mon nouvel album continue le cycle de la vie. Après notre naissance créative, il explore la coupée proverbial 
du cordon ombilical . Il s'agit de nous émanciper de l'esclavage émotionnel. J'ai joué certaines des chansons à travers l'Europe, y compris 3 singles à succès:
- Un FANTÔME DE MOI ou comment perdre nos maisons émotionnelles est comme se perdre
- SOUS VOTRE SORTE ou à quel point il est difficile de se séparer du diable que nous connaissons mais qu'à notre époque, nous le ferons et le ferons
- L'AUTRE FEMME ou comment on blâme les autres avant de s'émanciper pour prendre nos responsabilités.

J'aimerais enregistrer l'album et les singles, y compris quelques entrées orchestrales, produire, mixer, masteriser, distribuer, promouvoir l'album et j'ai besoin de votre aide pour des résultats de qualité.

Il y a tellement de récompenses pour vous remercier pour votre confiance, votre soutien et votre investissement. Vérifiez-les et vous pouvez même en suggérer (dans des limites raisonnables). Votre soutien fait toute une différence dans ce travail et je tiens simplement à vous remercier d'avance de faire partie du voyage de cet album.

Lorsque vous donnez de l'argent, vous recevez un remerciement personnel de votre part. Si vous êtes d'accord, votre nom est écrit sur le mur des fans de mon site. Lorsque vous donnez 100 £ ou plus, votre nom obtient un merci dans les notes de couverture du nouvel album!

J'ai grandi avec de la musique soutenant ma compréhension du monde et moi-même quand il n'y avait personne pour me guider. La musique est ma façon d'exprimer ma gratitude et le besoin de nourrir l'âme affamée de quelque chose au-delà du divertissement. Ma musique ne serait pas satisfaite si elle devait simplement divertir, cela signifie donner du pouvoir.

It is overwhelming any time people in their busy and demanding lives find the time to give anyone let alone me, my music and this fundraising any time at all. I will never feel like I have thanked you enough for giving, for sending a message, for forwarding, for sharing a piece of you. Thank you for believing in this record.
Thanks to two new donors, Mike R and Sara A, two dear people with whom I am lucky enough to have shared music and opinions. Thank you ♥
