Emma Davey - Debut Album "The Court Of Love"

Project 2014-10-31 12:50:20 +1300

Welcome!

I'm so excited to be making my debut album and it's sounding great - I really think you’re going to love it! 

This year has been an a great year for me musically. Particular highlights being performances at WOMAD and WOW and capping the year off with an album of great original songs.

Over the last few years I’ve amassed a catalogue of songs in a range of styles, each with their own unique story (I love a good story!) and I’ve decided it’s about time I shared some of these with you.

 

 

You can read all about it below or just play the video ;-)

 

My album project

For a good while now I’ve had this idea forming in my head..... Think the wild west, saloon bar, tumbleweed town, saloon girls, gunslingers and gamblers. If you love catchy melodies and interesting characters then there is something for you in this album! 

 

But don’t take my word for it, you can listen and judge for yourself! The music on my pledge-me video is all me! ;-) (demos) If you like what you hear then I’d love for you to help me out and even be a part of this album!

 

I’ve already started in the studio and most of the basic tracks are down - now it's time to lay down the vocals and sprinkle some magic studio dust; violins, strings the slide guitar and maybe even YOUR tambourine or hand claps! We also need to create the visually alluring album artwork that will help tell the story and of course the supporting website and marketing material. I need your help to make all this important stuff happen.

 

There are a number of what I hope are tempting offerings in return for your very generous and appreciated pledges! Check them out on the page - I’m sure there’ll be something there that will appeal to you and your pocket.

 About me

So why pledge me to turn my long dreamt of album into a reality you may ask? Do I have what it takes to pull this off? Let me tell you a little bit about myself - I am a seasoned singer who’s been playing in a range of bands over at least 20 years and has appeared as a backing singer on numerous albums including, Dave Feehan Band, Julie Lamb band and as a lead singer on the Balkanistas debut album.

 

I’m a singing teacher / vocal coach by day and a singer by night. One day I’m belting out Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant song” and the next I’m crooning a jazz standard. Being a Virgo I’m a bit of a perfectionist and this makes me a perfect studio singer - I’ve been involved in many albums so making my own is a logical and long awaited move.

 

Make a pledge                   

It is not about money for nothing. Pledging gets rewards! It's like buying an advance copy of an album except you are making that album happen! We have lots of neat rewards from signed CDs to VIP pass to the final mix down session where you can help tweak the final album mixes!

  

Share this campaign                   

We bet you'll love this album and we're sure you'll know other people who will love my catchy tunes.  So please share the love. 

If you can't afford to pledge now how about sharing this campaign with your friends and giving it a little push for me so that it can reach the widest possible audience.  Share it today then share it again tomorrow. That would be an awesome contribution!

 

Where will the money go?

 

  • Producer & Engineer fees
  • Mixing & Mastering
  • Musicians fees
  • Album Design & Photography
  • Manufacturing
  • Advertising

 

As you can imagine it’s going to cost a lot more than our target. We are aiming for a modest $3500. But you don’t need to stop there! With your kindness and support we can raise more and that would be awesome!

The money will be transferred from your account/credit card at the end of the campaign WHEN we meet the target (So if you want that reward remember to share the campaign!)

 

Please spread the word!

Share this page freely and help make this dream come true and bring these catchy tunes and stories out of my head and into your world!

  

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and to listen.

Emma xx
