Sara Ryan - Debut Album

By Sara Ryan

description

This project is helping me to Fund recording my Debut Album. My vocal style is a mixture of folk, blues and soul. I will be working with a brilliant producer and band to help to fully convey the songs written for this album. I love to push the boundaries within genres and create a style that no one has ever heard before. As a songwriter my main goal is to connect with others through my songs through telling stories about my experiences and experiences of those close to me.

If my campaign is successful, all the money will go to -


- Studio Time

- Mixing and Mastering

- Hiring Musicians

- CD Duplication

- Music Distribution

- PR

- Reward Delivery


All of this I would love to achieve at the highest standard that it deserves. I really value anyone I work with and equally I really value your donation.

In March I released my Debut EP ‘Glitter Skies’. It was a beautiful experience recording it with Christian Best in Monique Studios, we ensured that the standard of the recording was at the highest it could be, I was delighted with the result.It’s been non stop ever since and I’ve been loving every second. I’ve toured extensively around Ireland with my band and it was a truly magical feeling performing the songs to people who genuinely wanted to listen. It really blew my mind. I’d love to continue this journey, this dream, as it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.

The only challenge I may face in completing this album is the fact that I’m a bit of a perfectionist. These songs are very close to my heart so it’s very important to me that they are all captured as true to the song as possible.

This Fund It campaign would be a huge help in completing this album. The list below explains the rewards I will give in return for your kind donation.Solo albums can be costly as all of the cost is on one person, rather than in a band situation where it is split a few ways. I would be extremely grateful if you’d be willing to help me to make this dream come true.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart for your support. I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for the support that I’ve gotten already from you. It means the world to me. I really appreciate it and I can’t wait to show you my songs!

Keeping you in the loop

Hello there lovey funders,
 
I hope that your all well and enjoying your summer so far! 
 
It’s been a whirlwind of a the last year. Thanks to your contribution I received the opportunity to fulfill my dream of recording my Debut Album. Recording the album was a really special, creative and overall beautiful experience. I’ve released a few singles from my album already this year and I’ll be releasing my favourite song from the album in September, I can’t wait to set this song free. I’m even more excited to set the album free. 
 
I’ve been busy over the last few months making sure all the rewards are getting to each funder. I got to sing a gorgeous house concert in my good friends Eilish and Ciaran’s house, I sang in Ross McParlands beautiful theatre called ‘Whale Theatre’ in Greystones, and I’m writing out the lyrics from each song on the album this week, along with many more rewards that I’m really looking forward to sending on.
 
I’m emailing you today to tell you that I’ll be sending you part of your reward, which is a pre-release digital download of the album, before the release in August. I’m releasing my Debut Album which I have titled ‘Breathe’ at the end of September. It’s because of your kind contribution that I have been able to create this album so I’m so delighted to send you this digital download in August. The only thing I ask of you is, to please not send it to anyone else that may share it on social media and to please not share the album on social media yourself, this link is for you as your reward and I would be very appreciative if the link is protected by you. 
 
So I just wanted to send you that update! Thank you so much again for your contribution. These songs came to life from times of darkness in my life, when I thought there was no way out and times of hope and sheer love for the beauty of life. It truly is a dream come true to have recorded this album and it means the world to me that you took the time out of your day to help to make my dream come true. 
 
I’ll be in touch soon! 
 
Lots of love to you,
 
Sara xx
