I am planning to record a new digital album for our spring tour 2013. A folk album of 8 songs in English (+ one in French). Today, I am launching a fundraiser for this project. Be the first to own the album! Find out about the other perks (according to your contribution). If you like what you hear, your support would be greatly appreciated!
Maylin is a singer-songwriter currently living in Paris.
She was formerly based in the US, where she founded her first band with guitarist Omar Torrez (Tom Waits) and percussionist David Leach (Ben Harper).
Her first album “On My Way To See You” was produced by Robin Di Maggio (Tracy Chapman, David Bowie, Steve Vai, etc…) and Baraka Di Candia (Sting).
The band promoted it in different festivals (SXSW in Austin, TX, PopKomm in Berlin, Germany), on indie and college radio stations in Canada, in California (KPFK, KXLU) and on the radio show " Voice of America".
She has been living in Paris since 2007 and has been performing with a trio (Kike Larrea, guitar; Pedro Bernales, percussions) or with a quintet (Julien Lallier, piano; Kike Larrea, guitar; Yesser oliveira, Pandeiro; Laure Trazzi, vocals) at venues and theaters such as The Sunset, Théâtre de la Reine Blanche, festival Kiosquorama.
Her musical style originally rooted in the Blues has evolved through the years into a subtle mix reclaiming themes of Folk music with poetry and mystery.
"This FUNDRAISING is aimed at recording my 2nd album.
It’s been way too long since the 1st one ( On My Way To See You, Nomaads 2005).
After much artistic soul searching, life–experiencing (one child later), I think it’s now time to capture the moment musically.
So: “Let’s Do This Thing!”
What is “This Thing”?
It’s a digital record with 8 original songs.
The songs are written and composed by: Maylin Pultar and friends such as Brice de Margerie, Alexandre Ignaczac.
It’s Folk music (Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake, Ray Lamontagne, Moriarty), or “Bohemian Folk” as I call it, since it has been traveling through other influences too."

What are the funds for?
I have found a way to make this record with the smallest budget possible
without compromising the quality of the recordings, preserving the integrity and essence of the songs.
Besides, we are committed it being made independently, so we don’t have to submit to any “mainstream” esthetic requirements or such commercial considerations.
Among the 8 songs, 2 are already recorded, one is almost finished and the other 5 need to be recorded from scratch.
We will be recording in the countryside near Poitiers (France) at a recording studio called “La Cabane”,
with Engineer and bass player Richard Puaud
Guitarist Lionel Dudognan
band member Julien Lallier at the piano
violinist: Kim Le Oc Mach
and band member percussionist: Yesser Oliveira
The funds raised will pay for:
The sound Engineer
Mixing and mastering
Artwork ( iTunes booklet)
This is a going to be an asmuchaspossible stress-free/ tested-on-animals / love-injected musical project made with the participation of well-intended-people.
As a result, you will get a 100% earth- and people-friendly product to blow away a rainy day.
Any surplus money will go towards touring (another big project in waiting).
What do you think! Happy to join in?
You'll be the first to own my new album before it's released to the general public and you'll be helping an independant artist be ready for her spring tour!
YOUR SUPPORT WILL MAKE THIS PROJECT POSSIBLE! Please tell your friends about it!
