Dear supporters, thank you for visiting my crowdfunding page. I’m Jaimi Faulkner, originally from Melbourne (Australia) and now based in Berlin, and I want to release my new Album in autumn this year. Be part of my crowdfunding campaign, choose out of beautiful rewards, spread the word - support me and my new album!
With this project I aim to, with the help of well known producer Ralf Mayer, engineer, produce, mix and master my long-awaited 4th studio album. The associated costs are quiet high which makes it difficult for me to solely fund this project. That’s why I’ve decided to start a crowdfunding campaign and I'm asking for your support. I offer a lot of unique thank you gifts and incentives for this campaign and I sincerely hope that together we can make my new album a reality.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
In May 2014 I want to produce my new Album. I am planning to escape for two weeks from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and dedicate myself wholly to the making of my new album in a location that is fitting to the mood of the songs and sounds that I have created. At this place my songs will be perfectly sculpted and arranged with the help of producer Ralf Mayer and my wonderful musicians under the best possible conditions.
The aim is to meet the highest possible standards of record production as well as capture the perfect sound and energy that you have come to expect from my live concerts.
The target group: YOU! Anyone who has a passion for blues, soul and folk. Anyone who is a fan of great handmade music. Anyone who enjoys supporting projects and the arts. Every single one of you can be part of this album.
Why would you support this project?
You wanted to buy my new album anyway? You want to be on a guestlist for life at any of my concerts? You want me to come to your home and perform? You want a guitar lesson? Or you are just interested in good music?
That’s why you should support this project ;)
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The money that we raise will cover the studio and production costs which include tracking the album, mixing and mastering, photography, video, artwork and graphic design, as well as paying my wonderful musicians for their time and energy they will put into every day in the studio.
I have the honour of working with Ralf Mayer who is one of the most famous producers in Germany. He already achieved a number of successes in collaboration with lots of internationally acclaimed artists like Xavier Naidoo, Die Fantastischen Vier, Cro, Sting or Herbert Grönemeyer.
Who are the people behind the project?
The project is backed by me, Jaimi Faulkner, by my amazing musicians Leon Den Engelsen (keys) Judith Renkema (bass) and Luuk Adams (Drums), my producer Ralf Mayer and also by my management of Musikwirtschaft.de GmbH.
