About Jenny Mitchell - Wildfires Album

Project 2017-11-13 13:02:01 +1300


 Hello there!
I’m Jenny Mitchell, a folk-country songwriter from Southern New Zealand
& I am all set to record my sophomore album Wildfires.
I’m very lucky to be working with award-winning Sydney based producer Matt Fell. He’s produced music for some of my favourite artists including Shane Nicholson, Fanny Lumsden & even Slim Dusty. We’re all set to record in February 2018 but we need you to jump on board so we can make this dream a reality.
A lot changes in three years & I really feel like I’ve grown as an artist since the release of The Old Oak in 2015. I really believe in my new songs & I’ve spent countless hours crafting them to be something that I’m so proud of. I’ve had so many amazing experiences all thanks to music & I am itching to get back into the studio & release some new tunes for you!
This album is going to allow me to step into the professional music industry & unfortunately my uni student bank account isn’t able to financially support that step. So I’ve thought long & hard about offering the perfect rewards that allow you to invest in Wildfires so that we can take this step together.
This includes just simply pre-ordering the album, buying tea towels, wine glasses, t-shirts, wedding entertainment packages, house concerts or access to behind the scenes of the creation of this album.
I am so blessed to always receive such incredible support that allows me to continue to develop and follow my music dreams. Not a day goes by that I’m not grateful for that support & I really hope you’ll jump on board this adventure with me

Where will the money go?
This money will go directly towards the recording and production of the album itself. This includes studio time, producer fees, musician fees (payment to the amazing musicians playing on the album) and the mixing of the music.
Anything funded over the target will go towards the manufacturing and marketing of Wildfires.
Cost Breakdown

Studio/Producer - $13,700
Musicians - $5,600
Mastering  $2,500*
Manufacturing - $3,500
Publicist - $5,000
Total Album Budget - $30,300
(* mastering is the last step of recording an album, that makes it all shiny & ready to play in your car, headphones or speakers)  
 As you can see, my funding target is half of what costs are required to record Wildfires. Realistically I'd like to be able to crowdfund $20,000 to take the pressure off financially. All my gig money will be funding the costs of this album, including gigs in Europe in December. While I'm very much aware of the size of this investment - it's something I truly believe so I know it'll be worth it. I hope you do to.

    3 DAYS TO GO & 89.13% of the way there!

    03:38AM Fri 15/12/17 on Jenny Mitchell - Wildfires Album

    We are so, so close! With three days left to reach the target, there's definitely some work to do before Sunday! But the past 24 hours have been wonderful & there are lots of new pledgers on board. Thank-you for your never ending support & if you're wanting to share the campaign around, an excellent way to explain what it's all about is to share this blog - 

    My lovely mother picked up the first of the tea towels to be printed - make sure you get yours before it's too late! 

    It's Thursday 2.30pm here in Ireland & I'm just getting ready to play a house concert in New Castle West, Limerick. It's mighty cold over here, so if you're a kiwi reading this I hope you're enjoying the sun! 

    Not long to go now x Keep it up!

    (Hello & thank-you) 

    Me oh my, there sure is a few dollars in the pot now! Thank-you so much to the champions who have been sharing this around like crazy & getting us closer to the funding goal each & every day. 

    With only 11 days to go it's now ESSENTIAL that we make sure people don't forget to pledge before it's too late. As most of you know, if I don't reach my funding target I won't receive any of the pledges. So it's time to pull out every resource we have. Social media is a hugely powerful tool & it's now time to utilise that. But don't forget the power of word of mouth! 

    Truly so humbled that so many of you are excited about this album. I've worked so hard to put it together & get goosebumps just thinking about getting into studio. 

    * I have a new offer on the table, if you can get one other person (by all means get more than one!) to pledge & let me know who it was once they've contributed, you'll get a FREE TICKET to the Wildfires album launch next year. * 

    Also, another reminder to make sure you email [email protected] if you've pledged for the All Access Pass & haven't received an invite to the group yet. 

    I've attached a short video explaining the entertainment packages available at the $500, $800 & $1000 mark. By all means, if you have an event you'd like me to play at that doesn't quite fit in those boxes get in touch with me & I'll do my best to work something out! 

    I can't thank-you enough for your support, let's get this campaign over the finish line x

    Hello from Stockholm!

    02:06PM Sun 26/11/17 on Jenny Mitchell - Wildfires Album

    Sending love & all my thanks from Sweden! We are almost at $6000 & I can’t believe how quickly this campaign has been moving. 

    There are 21 days left & while that may seem like a long time it’s so important that you keep sharing with your friends so that we ensure we make it across the line by the 17th! 

    The great thing about Pledge Me is that if you want to invest now but don’t have the cash, you won’t be charged until the end of the campaign. So if you’re thinking of pledging later, do it now so that you don’t miss out on seeing my travels Europe through the All Access Page! 

    - If you’ve pledged for the All Access Pass but haven’t been given membership, contact [email protected] with the email you use for Facebook. 


    Tack så mycket! Thank-you so much! For all of your hard work & generosity so far. 1 week down, 3 to go!
