The project

The project:

Lake Folks is mainly a solo project that I have decided to develop with my guitar and my voice:

 

Lake_folks_4-1497309532                                                              Me: Martin

 

The mention of the "lake" in the name of my project refers to my home region of Aix-les-Bains in Savoie (France) where I was born and raised, and where I have learned to become a musician, notably through my previous band projects (C.O.D.E. and Cod'Acoustic).

 

After a few years spent abroad for my studies, I have started to compose by myself and to share those songs mostly informally.

The songs that are on this EP have mainly been composed during my stay in the Netherlands. Since then, I have had the chance to perform those in several gigs in The Hague, New York or Geneva and the feedback I had only convinced me that I had to record these songs on an EP!

 

Thus, now that I am back home in Savoie (France), I have decided to gather my musician friends in order to present to you this EP for the creation of which I propose you to participate!

 

Influences:

Lake Folks is a folk/pop/indie musical project with many influences such as Bon Iver, Kings of Convenience, Ben Howard, Villagers, Paul Simon, Ben Harper, Jeff Buckley, Sufjan Stevens etc.

State of the project:

The recording and mix are already finished. Therefore, I have good hopes that the EP should be released in July 2017. However, there are still a few steps to go through (and therefore some expenses, see below).

Since this is a solo project, I am alone in bearing the costs of this EP. This is why I decided to ask you to contribute in order to help me making this project as good as possible!

Why fund it?

As said previously, the recording and mix of the EP was just completed.

If I have had the chance to gather some friends to build some part of this EP, the production as well as the promotion of such an object are not without costs.

 

Currently, the expenses already paid for and those to be paid to complete this project are the following:

Capture_d_e_cran_2017-06-27_a__18.05.44-1498579581

 

Which makes it a total of about 3400€. This is why I am asking you today to help me finance a part of this EP!

I will be the one collecting the funds in order to achieve this goal.

 

I will contact you personally in order to find the safest and most efficient way to give your rewards (in hand, delivery). The rewards should be available during July 2017.

 

If the funds gathered are higher that what is aimed at, this money will be used in order to cover the rest of the expenses and in particular for the making of the music video.

 

I thank you already from the bottom of my heart!
