Gabrielle Verleyen - Le Lac - 1er EP

<p>Hello everybody!</p> <p>My name is Gabrielle Verleyen and I&#39;m finalzing <strong>my first EP</strong><em>, <strong>Le lac</strong>. </em>I&rsquo;m super excited about sharing my work with you. I&nbsp;started several years ago this intense and passionate journey, and I hope you like the final results!</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/635298/23-1575283201.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3 style="text-align:center"><strong>My journey</strong></h3> <p>Music has always been a part of my life and I usually have a song on my lips, but fifteen years ago I would not have believed that music would become my career. Since I&rsquo;m very shy I spent my childhood and teenage years hiding my singing. It was only while studying literature in university that, thanks to a friend &ldquo;pushing&rdquo; me, I sang for the first time in public. The experience was a revelation to me and I totally reversed my course. I dropped my studies and started studying music full time. After two years in a<strong> jazz school</strong> I studied singing&nbsp;at the <strong>Conservatory of World Music in Rotterdam</strong>, where I stayed for seven years. During my stay in Rotterdam I wrote my first songs, inspired by this atypical city, surrounded by water, nature, concreted, and people from many different backgrounds. Under artist name of <strong>Elina Lys</strong> and accompanied by a great team, I released my <strong>first single <em>Demain</em></strong> and was one of the five finalists in the <strong>contest &ldquo;Best singer-songwriter van Rotterdam.&rdquo;</strong> My band and I performed at different venues in Rotterdam and later on in Belgium as well.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/635300/21167325_1768758256504389_1826691807878474594_o-1575283327.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>The next step is the EP, a five song album: an accomplishement, a dream, but also a tool for promotion since it will increase our visibility and chances to perform in more locations.</p> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3 style="text-align:center"><strong><em>Le Lac -&nbsp;</em></strong><strong>the EP</strong></h3> <p>This EP will be recorded beginning of January and <strong>released in spring 2020</strong>.</p> <p>It will contain <strong>five songs</strong> selected from my compositions. They are the ones that touch me the most while I sing them and therefore they are the ones I want to share with you the most. The lyrics are inspired by my personal experiences, my fears, my desires, <strong>subjects</strong> that are at the same time <strong>intimate and universal</strong>. Most of them are in French and some in English.</p> <p>The EP&rsquo;s influences are <strong>indie</strong>&nbsp;<strong>folk</strong>, <strong>indie rock</strong>, <strong>dream pop</strong>, with some <strong>oriental touch</strong>.I wanted to create a universe alternately <strong>atmospheric and dynamic</strong>, between nostalgy and hope, at the same time <strong>melancholic and luminous.</strong> To create these ambiances, I surrounded myself by really talented musicians with whom I count myself privileged to play to this day.</p> <p>Here is a live version of one of the songs of the EP!</p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2F2bXIePfTPgY%3Ffeature%3Doembed&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D2bXIePfTPgY&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2F2bXIePfTPgY%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="500"></iframe></div> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3 style="text-align:center"><strong>The team</strong></h3> <p>Accompanied by <strong>three extraordinary musicians</strong>, my songs are enriched by their sensibility and creativity. These fellow musicians are old time friends of mine and are invested in this project in which they bring their personal touch. <strong>Edouard Cabuy </strong>on the drums, <strong>Julien Guilloux</strong> on the trombon and&nbsp;<strong>Romain Verwilghen</strong> on the guitar and backup&nbsp;voices. I feel really lucky to share this adventure with those artists.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/635308/Photo_de_groupe_qualit_-1575284922.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>We will record in the beautiful&nbsp;<strong>KeyOrg studio</strong> of Christophe Tign&eacute;e and the <strong>sound engineer Ulysse Wautier</strong> will record and mix the EP.</p> <p>The EP&rsquo;s <strong>art work</strong> is done by the talented artist <strong>Christian Durieux</strong> who has done an amazing work.</p> <p>And to finish, I have the chance to be supported by the <strong>label M.J. Key&nbsp;Recordz</strong>&nbsp;that is supervising the entire process and will finance a part of the costs.</p> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3 style="text-align:center"><strong>Why do we need your help?</strong></h3> <p>With the support of the label M.J. Key Recordz&nbsp;and personnal funds, <strong>we can finance the recording and the mix</strong> of the EP. However, <strong>creation and diffusion of an EP still requires finances for the following steps</strong>: mastering, pressing, a video clip, and promotion. These additional costs are at present a financial obstacle to the realization of the EP, and that is why I&rsquo;m reaching out to you. <strong>I need your help more than ever!</strong></p> <p><strong>Every contributions is important</strong>. There are compensations for every budget and every participation would be really appreciated!</p> <h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>I would be so&nbsp;grateful for your support! </strong></h2> <h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>Thank you so much!</strong></h2>

Allocation of funds

<h3 style="text-align:center"><strong>How will the raised funds be used?</strong></h3> <p>Everything is ready. With your help, the EP could&nbsp;be finalized!</p> <p>The total cost for the recording and marketing of the EP is &euro;5750 plus the KissKissBankBank comission. This means that the funds raised here will only cover part of the cost. The rest will be financed by the label M.J. Key Recordz&nbsp;and personal funds.</p> <h3 style="text-align:center"><strong>Breakdown of the costs:</strong></h3> <p>Studio and mix: &euro;3000</p> <p>Mastering: &euro;300</p> <p>Pressage: &euro;650</p> <p>Video clip: &euro;1200</p> <p>Media promotion: &euro;600</p> <p>Kiss kiss bank bank commission:&nbsp;&euro;220 (8%)</p> <h3 style="text-align:center">&nbsp;</h3> <h3 style="text-align:center"><strong>And if we exceed the crowdfunding&nbsp;goal?</strong></h3> <p><strong>To reach this amount would already be a wonderful success!</strong> But if we are so lucky that donations exceed the goal, the surplus will be used to produce an animated music video for <em>Si les &eacute;toiles</em>,&nbsp;one of the songs on the EP. &nbsp;</p> <p>I really can&rsquo;t wait for you to discover the final results of this long and passionate creative process! I truly hope you&rsquo;ll like it and that this music will resonate with you.</p> <p style="text-align:center">&nbsp;</p> <h3 style="text-align:center"><strong>I thank you infinitely for your contribution!</strong></h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>PS: If you have any questions, remarks, or technical problems with the website, you can contact me here : gabrielle.verleyen@gmail.com</p> <p>Thanks a lot to the photographers: Marta Soriano, Sena Grote Prijs, Viewdvision, Natacha P&eacute;ant, Phil Colig and&nbsp;Guy Verscheren</p>
