Help Support Katy's 2022 EP Driftwood

Help Support Katy's 2022 EP Driftwood

Hi friend! I want to share with you something really exciting. I have it on my heart to record a new EP and need your help to make it a reality! 

After recording my 2020 album, Shine, I realized just how much $$$ it is to produce this type of work! That financial burden almost kept me from producing another, but then I realized I have a wonderfully supportive circle who wouldn't want me to do this alone. So, this time around, it's a community effort to help me continue to do the work that I love and share my music and its messages of authenticity, hope, and mindfulness! 

What's an EP? An 'EP' is a mini-album, typically 4-6 songs, and this is what I'm creating, to be released in early 2022. 

I'm calling my new EP Driftwood, after one of the songs that will be on it. Speaking of songs, when you donate $35 or more to my crowdfunding campaign, you'll get immediate access to the first single off of the EP, "Walden". 

My goal is to raise $6000 to cover the costs of recording, producing, and marketing Driftwood

There are six levels of support to choose from when you donate, and with each of these you'll get some goodies to thank you for your contribution – including a CD and download of Driftwood as soon as it is available in 2022!

FAQ

What is the money going toward?  

🎵Studio time for recording sessions (this is where most of the $ is going!) 

🎵Paying my band for live performances (so important—they are amazing!) 

🎵Marketing costs (website, branding, social media, press) so people actually hear it! 

🎵Music video of “Walden” (and hopefully a second single too) because music videos aren’t just for MTV anymore! They’re a way for independent artists to get more engagement for their songs, and they help creatively tell the story of a song. 

🎵Merchandise related to the EP, for giveaways and to sell on my website/at performances 

🎵Cost of purchasing the physical CDs of the EP (which you’ll get a copy of when you donate!) 

🎵Self-employment tax (Uncle Sam takes a LOT, so raising $6000 will offset this loss) 

🎵Shipping cost of donation goodies (thanks for paying a flat fee of $5 shipping upon checkout; it’s actually going to be a lot more than this to mail to certain parts of the country, so any additional money will go to offset this cost) 

 

When will our goodies be delivered? 

🎁Goodies will go out in two shipments. 

🎁Your first shipment will be everything BUT the Driftwood physical CD (and digital download), because I still need to record the rest of it, which is why I am hosting this campaign ! 

🎁The first shipment will be guaranteed December 1 delivery, in time for holiday gifting! 

🎁I will be sending you updates on Driftwood via email and will be letting you know when to expect your CD and digital download. I anticipate shipping during first half of 2022. 

 

Shipping 

📦You will notice a $5 charge for shipping. This is to help offset shipping costs, which quickly add up.  

📦International Shipping: I wish I could, but I tried recently to send one of my mindful collage magnets (a 3.5 in sq. one, to be exact) to Canada, and it was going to be $60!! That’s a NGH (aka NOT GONNA HAPPEN!). My apologies, but if you have a friend in the States we could ship to who you’ll be seeing soon or that you would like to gift your goodies to, that’s what I’d recommend. 

 

What is a Handmade Song?  

I’m so glad you asked! 

This is probably the most exciting item in the donation levels. It’s a commissioned song, just for you (or the person about whom you’d like me to write it!). 

📝First, I set up a 1/2 hr Zoom call with you and we talk about your vision for the song and who/what you want it to be about. Whether it’s for your partner in celebration of a milestone anniversary, for a family member or friend as a unforgettable gift, or for you and your children’s very own ‘theme song,’ you’ll be able to partner with me in creating this one-of-a-kind original song. 

📝Next, I go to work crafting the song, and I send you a rough draft for you to approve. 

📝Finally, I record it as an acoustic track (vocal and guitar) and send the audio mp3 file to you, as well as a Word doc of the lyrics so you can use as you wish in packaging your ‘gift of song’ for your special someone/occasion. 

📝Please note there are only (4) handmade songs available.  As soon as they are sold, those package levels will be closed! 

📝Producer level handmade songs are guaranteed by mid-December, in time for the holidays.  Muse level handmade songs will be created in the order of purchase and delivered in Q1 of 2022, so ACT FAST and donate at either the Muse ($500) or Producer ($1000) level today! 

 

Check out two testimonials from people who have purchased a Handmade Song: 

💗This was the best gift I’ve ever given! Katy made the process so easy. She asked the right questions and used my answers to create an absolutely perfect song! There wasn’t a dry eye in the room after we listened. Thank you, Katy!” 

-Sandee 

💗“We purchased a handmade song from Katy for our three young children. She interviewed us, listened to the descriptions of our children, and crafted a beautiful tribute to help us remember this sweet phase. Cue all the happy tears! Katy’s genuine love for others and talent shines through her smile and music.” 

-Erica and Tim 

 

Do I get to choose my Magnetic Mindful Collage? 

🖼While you won't be able to choose your Magnetic Mindful Collage, I (Katy) will be hand-selecting it just for you!  

 

How will I get my behind the scenes content? 

⭐️By donating you are agreeing to have your email address added to a special mailing list, that will go out only to sponsors of Driftwood. (There will be an opt-out link if you want to unsubscribe.)

 

Is my donation tax deductible?  

💲Unfortunately no, but I hope this doesn’t keep you from donating. I really appreciate your generosity and support of my music.
