New stretch target


Any money made stretching past my initial £7000 target will go into paying extra studio time, PR and marketing.
I honestly when I set up my page I didnt think I'd even make it this far with funding and knew that this record would realistically cost £10000 to make so I have been preparing myself for that! 
But here we are, 6 weeks later £7000 target met, Arts Council funded and still climbing. 

If I can some how make it to the giant stretch target of £10000 quite simply I will be able to afford to make more songs for this record, go from EP to LP! ha!
I would have enough to make videos to support the release, do a FULL PR and marketing campaign, online and in print, pay radio pluggers and the ultimate dream, press vinyl!

**10% of anything I raise over my target will go to a charity supporting Syrian refugees fleeing the war.

About me:

Hi!! My name is Eva Lazarus and I would love to write my first ever solo EP!
I have been making music for my whole life, played all over the world and released lots of collaborative music, BUT, I have never put together a whole record of my own.
The time is now, I NEED to make this happen!
I have made a lot of different types of music in the past and would love the opportunity to focus on one sound for this record.

What I'm going to do:

I'm going to make a hip hop/soul with live instrumentation!
I dreamed up my dream team to make the music, I approached them and they all said yes!
There is no better feeling than being given the green light by musicians that I respect to create this piece of work.
But creating something like this and making sure everyone is paid for their time isn't cheap which is why I need your help!
I have so many songs that I need to get out of my brain and into the world but the lack of funds makes progress  painfully slow.
This crowdfunder really would change everything for me!

What you are funding:

The money you fund will go towards paying the musicians (drums, bass, keys, guitar and brass) producer, engineer and studio time.
It will go towards finalising the mix and mastering of the music.
Travel and rehearsal time.
It will go into merchandise, distribution and  promotion of the record once it has finished so we can spread this music as far as it can possibly go!
From Bristol to Jupiter I'd love this to reach as many people as possible!

This is the dream for me! 

To write music with amazing people, songs that I'm proud of,  songs that really mean something.

To take pride in the fact that in the studio we all just made something sick that we cant wait to show YOU!

I would love to be able to look back in 10 years and see growth in my career that is jump started by this moment.

Thank you for taking the time out to read this, I honestly do appreciate the help and support I get! Some of you reading this are part of the reason that I was able to leave conventional employment and start doing music full time, that was a really amazing mile stone in my life!

This EP is the next mile stone.

Thank you and have a beautiful day!

Much Love,

Eva Lazarus :) x
