Campaign successfully funded on: 19 Apr,2015
say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. They don’t tell us
how the journey is supposed to go neither how long it’s supposed to take.
It’s like this for a reason. I can say that the single step that my journey
started with, was a YouTube video I made with my sister together with a group of dear friends called "to Our Countries". The video unexpectedly
stormed social media both in the East and the West. That first step, was so
powerful, that it made me walk much faster in my thousand miles journey. At some
point I realized I was running and even jumping over a few steps. This single video opened up an entire new world for me: all the feedback, media, interviews,
trips, festivals, articles and attention, but most importantly the love, support
and trust, from beautiful strangers that showed eagerness to hear more of my
All of this, gave me tremendous energy and conviction to proceed in my journey. Until I came to a crossroads, where I stopped and asked myself: now what? Which path should I take? It was time for taking a decision.
had many options to chose from: Should I consider all these offers from
different production companies? Should I apply for those talent shows that are
constantly calling me? Or should I get back to my comfort-zone and old life in
my small town in Sweden and keep on living like nothing happened. It was not a
matter of which path is easier or harder, shorter or longer. It was about the
path that made my heart beat faster and the only thing that could do that was
the idea of me singing, with freedom, for causes I live for,
the exact same thing that brought me this close to you in such a short time.
Sadly, the options mentioned earlier pose a risk of limiting my freedom or even losing power over the music I am going to make. However, I’m also aware, just like you are, that any art with good quality needs funding.
So today, I need your support, or rather your participation in my first project so that we can create together the art we want and believe in, without any compromise.
The path I've chosen is one where I don’t just sing for the sake of singing. That is why I need you to be there at the beginning of this journey. This first step is going to decide my musical identity, and later on, it will become easier to create the music you and I both love; even producers will know and understand what I’m here to do.
Working on my first original single has already started, from song-writing to singing training, and with your help I will be able to carry out the recording, filming and marketing process.
I promise you to always give my best, and stay true to myself, my art and foremost to you.Thank you,
The First Song
The lyrics of my first
song (or my first baby as I would like to call it) have been written and now in the
process of music composing.
It has all the elements and artistic values in meaning and music that I would like to start my career with.
I can't wait to share my work with you! (Stay tuned to find out more)
