Mary-Jess is on Pledge Music!
I’m so excited to be making my debut on PledgeMusic, the new progressive and innovative music platform, giving you, my wonderful friends and supporters, as well as those newly-discovering my music, the opportunity to get involved in the process of recording my new EP, set for release in April 2018.
One of my main passions in life (other than singing and going to Asia!) is supporting young artists in their quest to somehow get a foot hold in the music industry. The Door Youth Project, a young person’s charity based in Gloucestershire, did this for me when I was 18 years old. I won a singing competition because they encouraged me to sing classical music and pursue my true music passion, rather than singing pop music because it was considered more ‘cool’. They really helped me find confidence in my classical voice, so now I’d like to try to do the same for other young artists. In view of this, I’m delighted to be recording four duets on this EP with some of the most incredibly talented teenage vocalists: Beth Ford, Tazmin Barnes, Kyle Tomlinson and The Strawhouse Singers, as well as my own brand-new solo track.
So, to get involved, there are a whole range of special exclusive items and experiences that you can choose from, in return for pledging a contribution towards the recording of the EP, starting at just £8. So whether it’s a signed copy of the EP, the chance to attend the recording session, attending a Chinese cooking course with me, or joining me for Afternoon Tea at the Royal Albert Hall, every pledge from you will help me make the EP the best it can possibly be.
Also by pledging, you will gain access to exclusive updates (not available anywhere else!) through PledgeMusic’s AccessPass! Most importantly, PledgeMusic will only release the funds if we reach 100% of the target, so please do get involved and help make this dream project a reality!
As well as supporting this project, when you pledge you will also be supporting the work of The Door Youth Project, who will receive a percentage of all funds raised. I’ve been a patron of the charity for seven years now; I just love what they do and it gives me such pleasure to support them!
This EP will be released in April next year, followed by a nationwide tour to celebrate the release! BUT before then, I’m going on my biggest solo tour to date this November and December where I’ll be joined by the guest artists from this EP, so you’ll have the chance to hear a preview of what this recording has in store. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be recording and working with these incredible young people!
Thank you so much for reading! I hope to keep you up-to-date on everything through your pledges and AccessPasses!
With love and many thanks,
Mary-Jess and Friends Winter Tour!
