Tiki Black: Second album

£1,050 of £6,000 goal

Raised by 20 people in 17 months
Hey there and Thank you for visiting my GoFundMe page! You can reserve my new album right now by choosing your option at the bottom of this page! (Note that the amounts on the right are correct but the complete rewards are listed at the bottom of this page).

I am Tiki Black and I write and sing songs that reminds us of our power as human beings in spite of all the adversities. My music, lyrics and vocals are reminiscent of some of my influences, a bit of Nina Simone meets Carole King, Fiona Apple and Tori Amos flirt with Elvis Costello, Barbara gets a Soul makeover.

My debut album, the award-winning "Out Of The Black" , encouraged us to express our creative selves beyond survival against fear and pain, with songs like the John Lennon Contest finalist, Swollen. The arrangements are sparse with vocals and piano at the centre and wordly strings and percussion to lift. 


This new album explores the hardships of self-emanticipation and the strength we find to live life on our own terms when we decide to. The album includes songs that I have performed on tours including A GHOST OF ME, a waltz written with Chris Whiting and Boo Hewerdine, THE OTHER WOMAN, a New Orleans-style acoustic blues infused with a modern take, and THE UNSCRIPTED aka UNDER YOUR SPELL, of which you can hear a solo acoustic version below.

This album is going to be a lot less sparse, richer, this time including more instruments and orchestral input. The arrangements will be more complex, considering the instrumentation and layers to manage. It's also going to need a producer, mixing, mastering, album assets, distribution and promotion and I need your help for quality results.

You can reserve your copy right now. 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.

You can check the progress by joining our newsletter at tikiblack.com or send me any questions or suggestions you may have on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!

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 ♥
