Help Release My Next Album

Hi :) Zaki Ibrahim here.   I am a singer-songwriter, artist, based in Toronto, Ontario and Cape Town, South Africa. 

I'm really close to releasing my 2nd full length album early  2017 and while I have managed to self-fund the project thus far (not without my ride or die co-writer and producer Alister Johnson), I need help with one last push.

Now as a completely independent artist, there are so many challenges to releasing a record, most of which involve having the funds to bring it to light . 

Working with like minded artists is important to me so funding my campaign not only helps me but allows me to hire and align naturally with local artists, designers, photographers etc who are also making a career of their talents. 

In exchange for your donation, I have something to give away which many of you have been asking for. MUSIC!

December 7th, 2016 marks the 10 year anniversary of my very first ep, SHO (iqra in orange). On this day you will receive a special edition download with bonus music for your donation.

This EP means a lot to me and many of you have seen me perform the songs over the years. 
Only 1500 physical copies of 'Sho' were printed the year following its release.  It was never made available for sale digitally. If you happen to have one of those cd's, hang on to it since we don't ever plan to print them again.

For your generous donation, you will be the first to receive it before it is made for sale to the public in2017. Donate a little more and you'll get a limited edition vinyl. Donate just a little bit more and I'll let you into my world and show you what I'm really really made of! So check out the options, some of them are out there...but, in truth, so am I, lol. 

I'm dying put out this new record and excited for you to hear these new sounds.  Its been a true labor of love and science and spirit and all things the Universe has been blessing me with. I'd like to tell you everything.  There's no better way to tell this story, than to start from the very beginning.

With love, 

PS. Today I posted 'Take a Stand' on Soundcloud. It was one of the first songs I ever wrote (with Mike Jansen) and still gives me all the feels. This remix by Nick Holder was done a decade ago and was recently found.
