Hey, My name is Tamara!
I'm a 27 years old singer songwritter who wish to record a 4 or 5 tracks Ep, it's called Us Wild Folks.
I've been in the music scene for a while now. I started singning in bars in 2010, released my first track "Mystery" in 2012. In 2014 I was on the tv show La Voix in Canada, just before releasing independently my first record Time, Wind & Fire which I wrote and composed by myself.
In 2015, I left my safety, my job in a music store, then sold my camera and a guitar so I could bring my folk on the other side ot the atlantic.
I was spotted by one of The Voice casting directors in France and got the opportunity to share my art.
This crazy move turned out to be very rewarding since the 4 chairs turned around and I was one of the 4 finalists on Mika's team.
This experience was truely amazing!
...I'm often asked what happened after The Voice, why didn't I get a record contract, why is the streets the place where people are most likely to hear me singing, what did I become etc.
Truth is, despite all the exposure and the few meetings I had with labels and producers, I don't seem to fit in what the industry is looking for.
I would need to change almost everything I am to be more commercial to be considerated. I will never be ready to compromise my soul in order to get out of the darkness.
Music is the only thing that truely makes me feel alive and if I had to become a product I am not for it to work out, I would simply have no more reason to be.
The past few years, I've been devoting almost all my spare times to writing songs for a new record, be on stage the more I can and wander the world with my small guitar hoping to catch the attention of labels or producers willing to support me has I am.
That's why I'm asking for your help today. Because I firmly believe that you, folks who listen to music, have the power of choosing what you want to hear. Who cares about the industry anyways!
Us Wild Folks is an indie folk Ep influenced by my guilty taste for pop music. The main subject of it is freedom, or course! I think the melodies and instrumentation of it all will make you travel wherever you wanna go.
20 songs who took their time to grow are only waiting for you to "see the light of day"
If we reach our goal, Us wild folks will be out this fall
It will also be easier for me to present myself in front of labels with a professional product that is representative of where I am musically right now!
And to be totally honest, I'm burning to share the music I've been working on for a few years with you!
I need you!
This crowdfounding will pay for the recording, production, realisation the mix, the mastering, musicians, the sound engineer, The fantastic artist who accepted to make the artwork for Us Wild folks etc. Basically it's 2000 per song plus the 800 Kiss Kiss Bank Bank commission
If we exceed the goal we will shoot a videoclip for one of the songs
And if we really blow the target, we could make a whole record, can you imagine!!.. (or a few more songs)
