On Indiegogo.com Naomi Neuts has started a crowdfunding project for the cover artwork on her upcoming album. She tells the following story about her journey into music. It is very inspirational.
Back in 2013, I never expected to become a singer. I was one of those people who would sing to the radio, or whenever it suited me, because it brightened my day. I’ve always loved music for as long as I can remember. One day last year, I had the idea for lyrics to a song, and knowing that my husband used to compose and play professionally, I wrote those lyrics down on the back of a receipt and gave it to him, asking, “Can you turn this into a song for me?” He hadn’t touched a musical instrument or worked in that field for about 16 years. What happened next was magical, and my first single release, “Mosaic” was born.
The reviews that were conducted on both “Mosaic” and my second release, “Voice Prints,” were truly inspiring, and I’ve gathered a modest following of over 16,000 fans in a few months and my music is now on the radio all over the world, from FM stations in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, to internet and college radio in Greece and elsewhere (see my News roll). I’ve done well on ReverbNation as a new artist, reaching #1 status in the charts multiple times and I’ve reached the low 40’s in the national charts within my genre with little marketing. Late last year, I signed an agreement with an Indie record label, Aurovine (Blackpool, United Kingdom), to represent me ethically in the marketplace.
I’m now pursuing this dream full-time, working on an album entitled “Time & Faces” to be released in the Spring of 2014. It will be released both digitally and physically. This album is important to me, because it’s a musical and emotional journey that covers key events and people in my life that either inspired me or forever etched a powerful memory in my mind. So far, the music I’ve created has touched the lives of many on an emotional level, and I hope to continue to create pieces that stir and impact the lives of others. My music is different, as we produce everything ourselves from our home studio with professional quality, an investment we made ourselves last year to pursue this passion together. I sing from the heart, and we compose music based solely on emotions, crafting a journey that embodies the message I’m trying to convey with each piece.
