Help us finalize LIFT's album !
LIFT : Emily Allison (vocals), Thomas Mayade (flugelhorn), Dorian Dumont (piano), Lennart Heyndels (doublebass), Jérôme Klein (drums).
As many of you already know, we recorded our debut album -1st Floor- at Studio de Meudon in July 2012 with the help of sound engineer -aka The Magician- Cyril Coutand. We are also very lucky to feature three amazing musicians on the album : David Linx, Christophe Panzani and Sandrine Marchetti. This winter, the recording was sent to the very talented Nelson Carvalho (Lisbon) to be mixed, and around April, Raphael Jonin, one of the very few gifted master-engineers in France, worked on the mastering of the album, marking the end of the artistic production.
For this debut album, one of our priorities was to record our compositions in the best possible way in order to give a project which is close to our heart its best chance. You'll no doubt understand that such a decision implies a considerable investment. Until now, the entire project has been self-financed apart from a smallgrant from Wallonie-Bruxelles.
The last step to be financed is the actual production of the album (pressing, design) as well as the promotion (press attaché). That's why we need your help. Your support will mean that this project will finally be completed!
Releasing the album will take us to the next level where we can start winning over programmers, the public, and the media - all the essential contacts for success in music!
We are very proud of the result and look forward to sharing our work with all of you. Our goal is to release the album in autumn 2013 and we hope to celebrate it with you very soon!
