Timeless EP

Hello beautiful people! 

My name is Amanda Lyn, and I'm a rockabilly singer/songwriter from Orlando, FL. You can find out more about me, watch my music video and read my blog on my website  www.amandalynmusic.com

My biggest goal for the New Year is to record and release a new EP of music I've written. I released a single and music video last year that I'm very proud of, and I want to get a chance to express the new sound I'm creating for myself. The EP will be an homage to the old sound of Sun Studio with a modern twist. I'm planning to call it "Timeless". 

Why do I need the money?
Like most artists, for me, money is tight. I'm a recent college graduate, and I'm working a survival job while trying to start my business as an actor/singer/songwriter. Being a creative is a full time, 24/7 job, and the hard work doesn't always translate into money right away. I need to have a product to sell, but the product costs money to make. You need money to make money, you know? I believe that this EP will help me on the road to becoming self-sufficient, because I will have a high-quality example of my work to assist with booking gigs, and it will give me a product to sell to fans who enjoy my live work. The album I made on my GarageBand when I was 17 is no longer cutting it! Haha.

Why should you help me?
If you believe in local independent artists, then you should help me out. Music transforms, and it forges connection between human beings. It shines a little light into the world. My dream is to be able to give others some of the joy that my favorite artists like Elvis Presley have given to me. Check out what I've done so far, and if you like what you hear and what you see, please consider giving - even a small amount helps! I'll be sending out special rewards and thank yous to those who choose to give at certain tiers.

Breakdown of costs:
-Estimated $1,500 needed to cover recording studio costs and mastering
-Estimated $500 needed to get the album digitally distributed and to press CDs

Thank you for being a part of my journey!

Peace, love and rock 'n' roll,
Amanda Lyn

Hi everyone! For those of you who have kindly contributed to the making of this EP, I wanted to let you know that the CDs have been shipped to me, so I will be receiving them within the next 3 to 5 business days. My goal is to have your rewards out to you by the end of May. You will be the first to have and hear the new album, since we are waiting on the digital release until the end of June or early July. Thank you for helping make this happen! Love, Amanda

Had a great session laying down some drums today! By Friday, all the tracking will be complete for 4 songs for the EP. Then, we are planning to record a LIVE TAKE of a song I wrote called, "Die Smilin'". Super exciting! There's still time for YOU to be a part of the making of this album. Any donation $10 or above gets you a signed copy upon completion. We are aiming for the end of May for a release!

Ok y'all! We are getting places. Last week, I recorded some video content for promo once the album is released. This is some real, raw, vulnerable footage, and I can't wait for you to hear my thoughts. This week, we have Abigail in the studio to record upright bass! Woohoo!
