My name is Caroline England. I’ve performed for years accompanying myself with an acoustic guitar and selling CDs out of my case.
I have recently finished recording a brand new album, this time I wanted to take it up a level. I wanted to create something classic, and beautiful. I didn’t have a record label, publisher or a gigantic budget.
Everyone knows Liverpool is famous for its musical heritage, I am fortunate to know incredible musicians in my city whom I’ve met through the thriving local music scene. I also began searching further afield online for session musicians and discovered some of the finest players in the world. Sites like Studio Pros and Airgigs led me to a drummer in LA, a bass player in Denver, a horn section in Cleveland, a string section in St Petersburg, a pianist in Lucca, and another bass player closer to home in London, England.
From my scratchy demos created in my tiny office at home, the individual parts were written, commissioned, worked on back and forth via skype and email, recorded and finally sent back to me polished and ready to mix. I would then take them into local studios, edit, add effects, mix and lay the vocals and harmonies.
There’s already been radio interest. Through BBC Introducing, BBC6 Music have been playing my songs and Tom Robinson even compared me to Dusty Springfield.
I trended on Twitter when I was reviewed by Mark Beech from Blomberg news.
In order to get ahead in the music industry I need some more capital. With your help, I can release this album properly and get my music out there as far and wide as possible.
It’s ready to go, all I need now is the funds to master, package and promote it. To get it in to all the radio stations in front of the decision makers, get the media talking about it and have a real shot at allowing the album to reach its potential.
That’s where your help comes in. I’m asking my fans to pledge. You can pre-order the album or buy exciting limited edition goodies and experiences to help.
Whatever you Pledge is greatly appreciated, you are helping me take a step closer to realising my dreams of releasing a top quality album.
When you pledge you’ll be the first to receive the album, and first to see my newest music video. You will get live updates first, footage from the recording process, behinds the scenes making of my latest music video, exclusive bonus download tracks, live interviews and performances as well as the ultimate supreme satisfaction that you helped and made a difference in my musical journey.
