Heather Robb – Debut EP
I want to tell you a story.
I was probably 10 years old. I was leaving summer camp. I sat in what we called the “backy-back” of my family’s mini-van, clutching my bulky, yellow walkman sport.
I remember the way the buttons felt, big and gummy, as I hit rewind and play again and again. I was listening to Mariah Carey’s ’Don’t Let Go’ on repeat.
Oh yeah, and I was sobbing. Silently.
I had fallen in love with my 20-something counsellor, Brian, and he had just given me the last noogie of the summer. Would it be our last noogie ever? I couldn’t bear the thought.
There were 7 of us in the van and I really didn’t want my parents or four siblings to hear me crying. But the agony felt magnificent – it was as if my tears proved to the universe that my love for Brian, camp counsellor, was real.
Brian – if you’re out there – I expect a substantial contribution here. But, no offense, it wasn’t really about you. It was about the sound in my headphones – it was about Mariah.
I have a dream to be that sound in your headphones. A dream to make you roll down the windows and turn it up and play drum fills on the steering wheel. I want to make you feel so good inside that it’ll shine right out through your eyeballs and roll down your cheeks.
I’m both asking and inviting you to be a part of my debut EP – after almost ten years in this crazy business, I am neither shy nor precious about this. It’s very simple – I have music that I want to record and put into the world and I know it will be a fun, rewarding creative endeavor. Powered by you.
By joining my Pledge campaign you are making this project possible. You’ll also hear stuff first, see stuff first and have access to donor-only exclusives – we’ll be a weird, over-sharing family unit from start to finish. It will be FUN.
Oh! And a portion of everything over my goal will go to the Story Pirates, one of my favorite non-profits in the world – so don’t be shy here! Especially you, Brian….
I can’t wait to share this journey, and the fruits of it, with you.
