What is this project all about?
Last year The Jaimi Faulkner Band recorded a new album, but its only half way there. With this project I aim to mix, master and promote my long-awaited 5th studio album. The associated costs are quite 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?
With my Startnext project, I aim to gain enough support to be able to mix, master, create album artwork, promote, press and release my 5th Studio album.
After my last release UP ALL NIGHT, I wanted to head in a different musical direction. After a year and a half of exploring musical ideas, what I found myself drawn to was the music of my upbringing - Blues, Soul and Folk.
I wrote and wrote and thought about how to capture this music in its most unaffected setting. So I decided, this album will raw, gutsy and will capture the essence of my band - four musicians in a room playing their hearts out.
After road testing all the new songs on tour, my band and I took all of our instruments and recording equipment to an old Fachwerkhaus (traditional wooden cottage) in Northern Germany and self produced and recorded what will be my 5th album. This year, in Autumn, I want to release the album.
The aim is to complete the mixing and mastering of the album so that you can enjoy 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 want to be a part of the making of this record?
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?

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The money that we raise will cover the final production costs which include 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.
