What is this project all about?
The plan is to release my debut EP including 5 of my own songs and a music video. EP stands for “extended player”, which is sort of a ‘mini-album’ – a short CD. I wrote these songs during my two years apprenticeship/training in NYC. Now I'd like to publish and share them with you in all their beauty. The music is acoustic pop rock in English inspired by John Mayer, Jason Mraz but also Johannes Oerding, a German artist.
Since I don’t have a recording contract yet I’m choosing this way to finance the project. Fortunately enough, I’ve already got an excellent band and found a great producer, who are going to play and work with me in the studio. For one song there will be an unplugged version and a music video as well. We have started recording that already. After recording we start making the CD.
If this project works out with your support, I will be able to release the CD before the summer of 2014. And, of course, I will present the debut CD live at a release concert.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
The goal is to finish producing and publishing the CD in order
to release it in the spring of 2014. For the purpose of a great
sound I need to record it professionally, so that maybe I can even
convince a record label. But, of course, that will cost some money,
for example for the musicians (e-guitar, bass, drums, keyboard) who
support me, plus the rent for the studio, for mixing the songs and
finally producing the CDs.
Everyone who likes me and is curious to listen to my music can support me! Just check out the video above, where I explain everything that I have stated here (subtitles!).
Why would you support this project?
Well, maybe you have seen and heard me live in concert and you like my music. If you haven’t, you might be curious about what my music sounds like. Or maybe you just want to support me on my way as an artist. That way you’d be very close to the project because, of course, I would inform you about everything that’s happening in the studio and afterwards. Or possibly, you liked me in the Disney movie “Rock It!” and want to support me.
Whatever the case might be you certainly have a special place in
my heart if you help me here!
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
We could cover most of the expenses for recording, the post production of the songs and the music video and the production of the CD. And this is my promise: Every Euro we get on top of our budget will go into planning and organizing a concert tour of my EP and the recording of more songs for the first complete album!
Who are the people behind the project?
My manager, Birgit Abraham, is taking care of the organisation behind the project, but of course I put all my heart into this project as well.
Those who don’t know me can get lots of information on
www.danielaxt.de or on facebook.
There, you'll find lots of information about my music, the films I
have starred in, and about who I am as a person. And, above all, I
also have the support of my producer Jan-Hendrik Kramer and my
management at FC Norden 02.
By the way, during the summer of 2013 I gave an interview for “Hamburg’s Newcomer-Scene“. Here, you can also find out much more about me. Check this out:
