Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help me make my first ever album, 'Black Birds.' I am so exited, Ive been dreaming of this and now I have all the art and songs ready.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hello Folks! I have been writing songs since I was five years old, it is an expression that has always been inside of me, my way of making sense of the world around me. Like a diary, making songs means I can sing about anything I want.
My confidence was broken down growing up, I had very unsupportive teachers that didn't nourish my creativity and unfortunately an abusive parent figure that crushed any ability to shine or preform. It's taken me eighteen years to regain my confidence and eight years to stabilise my mental health and feel able and content within myself. I have been working on my creativity, painting and music and finally feel exited and ready to make an album. I want to finally use my creativity to turn my life around and tell the stories I have experienced growing up. I have always dreamt of writing stories.
Making this album would be one creative step into the right direction for me. Music is medicine. And like any art, self expression.
Any help or support would be so amazing.
My influences on this album are; Soke- 'I thought I was an Alien.'
Laura Marling, Daughter, Portishead, Mazzy Starr.
And Jeff Buckley is always an influence for me.
