Juliana Areias - Bossa Nova Baby CD album POZIBLE Crowd Funding Campaign postal_final


ABOUT THE PROJECT – The Crowd-funding Campaign

The story of the project

( Information in Portuguese at the bottom of the page / INFORMACAO EM PORTUGUES NO FINAL DA PAGINA, ABAIXO DA BANDEIRA DO BRASIL)
Hi There! Thanks for checking out my crowd-funding campaign :-)I’m a Brazilian-born vocalist and songwriter based in Perth, Australia, and I am producing my first original album, titled; “Bossa Nova Baby”. The album is a celebration of over 15 years of performing and composing with superb musicians around the world, specially in Brazil, Switzerland, New Zealand and now Australia.
My songs embrace the full spectrum of Brazilian music and its resonance with other musical styles such as jazz, funk, pop and rock. My album will explore how my authentic Bossa Nova accent has evolved over the years and has found influences in all the places I’ve been to and people I’ve met.
“Bossa Nova Baby” is my musical nickname and it reflects my essence as a singer and songwriter. My love for music has inspired me to follow the artistic path and here I am today, ready to share all these inspirations and the very best of me, my music…
The album will have 12 original tracks, all recorded in Perth with some of the most highly regarded jazz musicians in Australia. It has always been my dream to create this album with such quality standards and I am thankful that now I have the access, opportunity and maturity to draw all the necessary people and elements together to make it real.
My mission with this project is to create a contemporary dialogue between Bossa Nova and all my other musical influences. My goal is to greet my audience with a type of music that goes beyond traditional boundaries and language barriers that can genuinely connect with people on higher levels of beauty, truth, love and life.
If this “sounds good” to you, please support my campaign. And as thank you token also enjoy the fabulous rewards given by my amazing sponsors who have been collaborating with my career and believing in my music for years.Thank you for your support!

How the funds will be used

The full production of the album will cost me some AU$35,000 :
Session musician fees ~ AU$13.200
Recording engineer fees (recording, production, mixing and mastering) ~ AU$9,700
Photography and Artwork design ~ AU$1,900
CD Pressing and Digipack cover printing ~ AU$1,400
APRA registration and royalty fees ~ AU$660
Administrative costs – ( CD postage, etc) ~ AU$1,900
Primary marketing and online distribution ~ AU$4200
CD launch expenses ~ AU$1800
* Pre-production costs ~ 5500 (Amount not added in the total cost of AU$ 35,000 but already spent to make the video, photo, flyer, printing, advertise, concert and music arrangements to launch this crowd-funding campaign.)To cover half of these production expenses, I am aiming to raise $17,500 from this crowd-funding campaign. For the other half I will be contributing with at least AU$ 7,500 from my own savings. I am also applying for a $10,000 government grant which will have its chances of approval doubled if this campaign is successful. As you can see, It is all or nothing. Your funds will only get drawn from you and released to my project if we meet this $17,500 target completely.Any extra money raised from this campaign will allow me to invest in the promotion of the album worldwide. This will help me to kick-start my Australian and overseas tours once the album is released. Would you like to come and watch my live perform in your city? THANK YOU for your generous contribution and for being part of my musical journey! It’s GREATLY appreciated!

Risk and challenges

A huge part of the pre-production work for this project is already in progress: I have selected all the songs that I will record and I am in the process of working on the arrangements with my fellow musicians. Rehearsals and live performances are scheduled. All musicians and studio have confirmed their participation in the project. My marketing and publicity plan is already in place.If both my crowd-funding campaign and my government grant application are not successful this time, it will definitely delay each step of the project. I will have to postpone the official release of the album and I will have to progress with the Juliana Areias – Bossa Nova Baby recording project very slowly. Unfortunately it will take me much longer to conclude it as I will have to subdivide the project to be able to afford all costs on my own. I also will have to generate extra income to be able to keep investing literally all my savings in this goal. At the same time I’ll try and find other alternatives for sponsorship such as organizations from the corporate sector with whom I can negotiate to support my project. I will not rest until I can afford to cover the whole project, because it is important for me as an artist and it is fundamental for the long term progress of my career.I am a quite well-organised, self-driven and perseverant independent artist and I am used to dealing with all the challenges and last minute changes of the music industry. So far I have overcome all obstacles to keep my artistic career constantly improving thanks to a lot of hard work, passion, integrity , creativity and, of course, the support of my fans and sponsors.To avoid any delay in the realization of this project I need your generous support.Thank you for your understanding!Juliana Areias :)

With over a year of consecutive sold out concerts around Australia, Brazilian Singer Juliana Areias, based in Perth since 2009 is already a reference in the local music scene and abroad.

Juliana was personally introduced to the Bossa Nova founders when she was a teenager by legendary Brazilian Music historian and journalist Ruy Castro who also named her “The Bossa Nova Baby”. This direct learning and unique experience have inspired her to become a professional singer.

Juliana Areias has lived for many years in Europe (Switzerland) and New Zealand prior to moving to Australia. Always working in the music circuit, her career includes performances at major international festivals such as the revered Montreux Jazz Festival, Auckland Festival, and American’s Cup (NZ). Most recent 2013 performances include the Inaugural Perth International Jazz Festival, New York’s exhibition “Van Gogh, Dali and Beyong” at The Art Gallery of Western Australia, and Ritmo Festival at The Darling Harbour, performing for over 30.000 people.

Juliana Areias has recorded for the poet, composer and Brazilian diplomat Marcio Catunda, 6 of his albums produced respectively in Switzerland (Anima Lirica -1997), Bulgaria (Crescente – 2000), Brazil ( Mistica Beleza – 2003/ Itinerario Sentimental – 2008) , Spain (Agua de Flores – 2009) and Portugal (O Jardineiro da Vida – 2010). .

Juliana Areias music embraces several shades of the Brazilian music spectrum and its resonance upon jazz and other international musical styles.

Her authentic Brazilian voice, sense of groove, engaging charisma and a very personal and passionate stage presence are the trademarks of her work.
