Songs For Bubbas 2 Anika Moa
Project 2015-09-03 15:31:14 +1200
Songs for Bubbas was born out of boredom, frustration and my silliness. Over the space of a year and a half I started to write the album in-between bot bots, tantrums, kai time and poo poo nappies, oh, along with my actual career which involves a lot of travel, strumming and singing.
I am in the process of writing Songs For Bubbas 2 and am hoping to raise $40,000 for the writing, recording, mixing, mastering, rewards, manufacturing, distribution and promoting the album once it's complete. I'm not asking for much aye. Yeah, right!
The two main reasons I am jumping on a crowd funding platform is because SO many parents are begging me to record more songs and I want to be in control of the whole thing without a record company having to be involved, oh and I am poor. lol
I aim to record it with my award winning right-hand man Andre Upston who recorded my last album and I am hoping to have it all finished and arriving in your mailbox in March 2016.
I want to thank you and did I tell you how good you're looking today?
Also, have you lost weight? Your eyes look great in this light!
Here's a wee breakdown of the budget so you know what's going where!!
Within the marketing part of the budget it will cover the cost of PR, Radio,
merchandise and everything else that can pop up along the way.
Writing Retreat $2,000
PledgeMe Fee $3,200
Be one of the first 50 people to grab the $30 Signed Album reward
(or above) and you will receive a 30ml bottle of SleepDrops for Kids.
Thanks heaps SleepDrops for your support!
SleepDrops for Kids are a completely natural sleep formula
designed to support your child’s natural sleep patterns.
They’re a non-habit forming, non-toxic, gentle way to help you to
re-establish calm before bedtime. This helps settle children when
they are overexcited or have an overactive mind which may be
preventing them from achieving the sleep necessary for their
growing bodies. More info.
100% recommended by Anika Moa!
We have a gorgeous design created by artist Hayley Bowis.

BRILLIANT NEWS WHANAU!!
We have done it! Raised $40k to make this album!!!
I couldn't have done it without YOU!!! I feel very overwhelmed and so humbled. It's all because of your support and determination. We are kiwis supporting kiwis and that's better than any American record contract, it's better than making it overseas because we are making it right here in Aotearoa. Our country is so full and amazing. The musicians are wildly talented and I'm proud to be a part of it.
Today is the first day of my writing and I'm going to kick this mother out of the park! Watch this space whanau, you're gonna LOVE this new album!!!
Please, feel free to continue pledging because every cent goes towards this album.
Share the ❤
Special thanks to Rodney Hewson, Katie Thompson, Nicky Claridge, MAZDA, PEAD PR The NZ Herald (for the awesome story) plus so many more but my extra love and amazingness to my brilliant, beautiful wahine Natasha Utting and my kids who make all this possible. Handsome little beauties.
Love Neeks xxxx

The Onesie Design is HERE!
27/10/2015 at 12:51 PM
Here is the onesie design! It was created by Hayley Bowis of Wild Notion Creative on the West Coast.
I loved the idea of a little maori doll riding on the back of a tui and the result is just beautiful and very quirky! The illustration also has the lyrics from my song Little Bird - "tui in the tree, singing softly. seeing in the dawn, with your sweet song."
I adore this design and hope you will too!! I'm getting a sample made up and will show you via my Facebook page as soon as I have it in my hands!
There's less that 20 days to go of the campaign and still a fair amount of money to raise. I really appreciate your support - the contributions and sharing means the world to me!
