Deciding to put out original music and raise funds for the same during the pandemic is a big leap of faith, to say the least. But this is me, putting myself out there.
The aim of this campaign is to bring a few of the many songs that I have written, to life. All contributions made will be used towards recording, mixing, mastering, compensating musicians, making album art, to name a few.
This EP (i.e. Extended Playlist - essentially a mini-album) has been a long time coming. This campaign is so important to me as it is meant to reveal to the world all that my heart has felt and all that it feels, through song.
One thing that my (dream) team and I desire, is this - to put our all in everything we set out to do - ethically and of quality. We are looking to launch the first song by the end of January 2021. For that, we need to begin recording by December.
This EP is meant for all - young, old and people from all walks of life. No one is excluded.
Your support (no matter big or small) is fuel, for my dream.
You can make my dream come true.
COST BREAK UP
I understand that before supporting this campaign, you would like to be aware of the risks. If living in a COVID world has proven anything to me, it is this: You can plan, but you will never truly know how things pan out. My team and I understand and honour the value of being accountable and intentional.
We want to assure you, that at every step of the way, you will be updated. All funds will be accounted for (my background in finance will definitely come in handy here). We want to take you on this journey and assure you of all that we do.
In the event of not reaching our goal, we want to assure you that we will adjust our costs, without compromising on quality and will continue to carry out our roles in an ethical manner. There are no cutting corners. The EP has songs of truth and we desire to act in that manner as well.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
