Project Description

 
Hey, it’s Julia!
Community is one of the most important things in my life.  As the daughter of two hard working immigrants in a small town in Alaska, I learned early that you can’t do everything yourself.  It’s really hard to ask for help, but I believe in my community, so here I am!

I’m making a record and I want to do it differently this time.  I’m an independent artist and producer so I usually do as much of it as I can on my own.  I work a full time job in childcare to cover my needs and support my passion, and I pay for everything out of pocket. 
That’s where you come in this time.  You all have been so supportive of my art that I thought I’d open myself up for support and ask for help.

My goal is to raise at least $8,000, but if we raise more, I’ll be able to set my sights a little higher and further invest in myself and my music.  For example, if we raise $8,500, that’s an extra studio day.  If we raise $8,750, that’s a music video.  If we raised $10,000 or more, I would be able to hire help with press for all of the singles and further the reach of the entire project.

I’ve come up with some incentives and rewards for your contributions to sweeten the pot, but if you just want to contribute and dip, that’s an option as well.  
I can not wait to continue to grow and share with you.
 
Xoxo

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

I want to purchase more than one reward. Can I do that?

Absolutely! You are able to select and add multiple rewards to your cart.

I just want to contribute, and not purchase a reward. What do I do?

The first reward listed is Monetary Option. Select this reward, type in the amount you'd like to contribute, and that amount will be added to fund.

I want a certain reward, but I'd like to contribute more than the reward price. What do I do?

Select the reward you would like to purchase, and then select the "Monetary Option" reward and fill in the additional amount you would like to contribute.

What types of payment do you accept?

Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, JCB, Diners Club,  etc.  Please let me know if you need an alternate payment method (Like Venmo or Cashapp).  We can work something out!  My Venmo is @cooliajannon.

When will your album be released?

I'm aiming to begin releasing singles in spring of 2022! 

Why $8,000?

Making an album requires writing each of the songs, booking studio time, hiring a producer, engineer, musicians, and a mastering engineer. It also takes a lot of time to plan everything out. After several months of recording and producing the songs, more time and money go into marketing, promotion, distribution, photography, videography, merchandise, and more.
