Marina Evans is looking for funding for her new cd and LDP is happy to spread the word.
I am Marina Evans, a folk/rock singer songwriter from Rockport, Massachusetts. This April, I am SO excited to board a plane to Florence, Italy where I am hoping to record my first full length album!
I’ve got the plane ticket, and I’ve written the songs. The band, producer, and studio are on board and at the ready; pre-production is already underway. Now, all I need is your help to git ‘er done!
First off, let me explain how Italy fits into the picture. I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Florence in 2008, and promptly and permanently fell in love with the place. I had written a few songs then and played at the open mics, where I met some Florentine musicians with whom I eventually gigged and recorded. From that point on I couldn’t stay away, and I have been extremely lucky to be able to return to Florence over the years as time and money has allowed.
When I wasn’t in Italy, I was in my hometown of Rockport, Massachusetts or nearby Gloucester. These too are beautiful, inspiring places that are just full of music – so much so that the majority of my catalog has been written here (check out Dogtown, the EP I released in Gloucester last fall). In fact, unless something spontaneous happens in the studio in Florence (you never know), this entire new album will have been written on Cape Ann. In that way the new album is a product of a bi-continental life, divided and bridged by oceans.
Years of traveling back and forth have paved the way for this record. And now, incredibly, it’s all in place – the songs, the band, even the studio (!) – just waiting for me to pull the trigger.
That is (ahem), with your very kind assistance!
