Project description show hide

What is this project all about?

I am a young singer from Frankfurt, Germany and I work on my debut album together with an independent label

Every song is about a situation in my life and it means a lot to me to process them with my music.

The music lives from the authenticity of its emotions which is why every song is different.
If you try to describe it though soul pop is probably the most agreeable word.

The diversity can also be found in the choice of instruments.
On polaroids you can, apart from my band, listen to percussion and many different kinds of brass players

This project is about financing the recording and promotion of the album so that I can show everyone what we've been working on with so much commitment for the past year.

In addition we will film a music video to the first single.

Thank you so much for your support

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Our goal is to produce a high quality album on an international standard.

With its release and promotion we want to present the music to a wide audience.

We’re addressing people who want to

• enjoy handmade, sophisticated music.
• listen to authentic lyrics and a special voice.

and support a young artist.

Why would you support this project?

Because you want to give real, promising music the chance to get produced professionally.

Because you want to buy an the album yourself and it can’t be realised without support.

Because it gives me the chance to start my career but stay true to myself at the same time

Because of good Karma ;)

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?

My album is getting produced by an independent label which means we don’t have the funds that a major label has.

That means i can make my own decisions but it also means that we have to take every little step ourselves.

Till we can give the album to you there are many things that have to be done and payed for.

The album:
• studio rent • guest musicians • mixing and mastering engineers • performance rights organisation costs (GEMA)

The artwork for the cover and the booklet

We will produce a musicvideo of the first single release

And when all of that is done the promotion of the album in the radio, internet, tv and magazines.

Cause after all that you and we put in “Polaroids“ we wanna show it to as many people as possible.

Who are the people behind the project?

There is me.. the singer, 19 years old. I started singing before I could speak.
Since then I never stopped
With time my wish to write my own music became bigger and bigger.

About a year ago I started collaborating with the independent label Brilliant Vibes.
The owners Ralph and Markus (the owners) worked on the songs with me and will be producing the album.

Then there is the band of course, the best in the entire universe!

Max on the drums, Malte – Keyboard and grand piano, Tim playing E- and Upright Bass and Julian my guitarist.

For some songs we invited guest-musicians like a percussionist and brass players like trombone, trumpet, saxophone, bass clarinet and more.
