Singer/Songwriter Halie Loren Launches Kickstarter Campaign For New Album
Internationally acclaimed singer and independent recording artist Halie Loren is teaming with famed British music producer Troy Miller (Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, Becca Stevens) to release a Kickstarter-funded studio album project, aptly titled, "Halie Loren is making a new album." http://bit.ly/HalieLoren
Loren first achieved international prominence with three jazz albums charting at No. 1 on Billboard Japan's Top 20. The new Kickstarter campaign will enable her fans to hear her voice backed by top studio musicians with industry-leading production values.
The new album will be distributed in Asia by JVC Kenwood Victor Entertainment and throughout the rest of the world by Justin Time Records. "We are gratified to see so many of Halie's fans who have committed to over one-half of the goal in only the first week," said Justin Time's president, Jim West. "This recording is a big undertaking with top-notch participants, and we are proud to be one of the channels in releasing it around the world in 2018."
The pledge period ends on September 30, and backers have the opportunity to receive gifts such signed pre-release CDs, silk-screened T-shirts, Halie Loren original artwork, concerts in your home, and eco-themed options.
In addition to covers of popular songs and jazz standards, all nine of her previous albums have featured one or more of her own originals, fitting in so seamlessly that not all fans realized they were hers. The new project will turn the spotlight entirely on her original material, and will be her most personal artistic statement to date.
"I have long dreamed of making this album, and finally felt brave enough to make this leap because of the immense outpouring of support that my fans have shown for my original music," said Loren. "This project feels so true and necessary for me as an artist, and I'm beyond excited to share it with the world. I'm truly grateful to all the people who are supporting me and this music."
Contributions will go toward production, studio time, recording engineering, mixing, mastering, artwork and photography, and promotion. Go to http://bit.ly/HalieLoren to see a video from Halie Loren and learn more about the "Halie Loren is making a new album" Kickstarter campaign.
