Things are looking good for Jane Lui. After a whirlwind 2009 (Thank you, YouTube!), the mistress of melancholy has herself a good therapist, a fresh look on life, and a new sound she’s ready to play with. That’s right, play. Our girl’s in a good place right now and she wants to share!
“I’m learning daily as I go, and have found a new side to my songwriting/soundscaping that’s nudging me in my sleep. So, for the New Record, I want to follow wherever this feeling is taking me, and bring something bright and shiny to the table.“
But after self-funding two solo albums in 2005 and 2007 (both available at CD Baby), the indie singer/songwriter knows all too well how long it could take to save up for a new recording. Frankly, happiness can’t wait.
And so she is doing a 60-day fundraiser in pursuit of happiness. The goal: $12k to make the New Record a reality, an all-or-nothing effort in which no one is charged if the goal isn’t met. After a week, pledges have gotten her 27% of the way there. Can she go all…the..way? Can we help her?
After all, she does make a pretty good case:
And wisely, she’s promised fun stuff for pledges! Our weakness just happens to be fun stuff. More importantly, we we want to witness the joys of her new sound. Lui lovers, please pledge here!
