I am trying to get funding to start a touring recording project for the youth of Northern Ireland.
In the past few years the Irish music scene has boomed.
As a youth support worker I had been working with very talented young people for the last few years, who wrote songs and had stories that completely blew me away.
These young people have no way of getting their stories heard, no ways of getting funding to get their songs and stories produced!
I am currently working in the Arts industry and have alot of experience of recording and live sound production, aloso completed a lvl 3 live sound and music technology course.
I want to combine my knowledge of music production and my ability to connect with young people to let them get a chance to tell their stories! To produce their songs, to help them get started.
There is alot of Irish songs that have been translated from english, but I want us to have our own original pop scene. Our culture is important to us and I think I can help alot of young people get to where they want to be.
The funding will help me buy some essential equipment ( Microphones, audio interface, headphone's, macbook ).
My goal is to record a 16 track album of 16 different young people in northern ireland and release it.
I also have alot of contacts in the radio/tv ect.
some of the fund's will also cover the cost's of printing and desinging the album cover ect.
