She Makes War: Laura Kidd on the experience of crowdfunding an album
Posted on: 31 janvier 2018, by : Music Ally

UK-based musician Laura Kidd writes, produces and records music as She Makes War, with three albums under her belt so far. She’s crowdfunding her fourth using PledgeMusic: here’s her take on the experience as an artist.
“In the time since I crowdfunded my second album ‘Little Battles’ in 2011, using sites like PledgeMusic to raise money for recording and releasing records has become part of the musical landscape.
This shift in culture from “why are musicians begging me for money?” to “I have no problem pre-ordering Robbie Williams’ new album on Pledge Music” was aided in no small part by Amanda Palmers’s $1.2m Kickstarter in 2012 but all this is, of course, happening long after Marillion paved the way for all of us when they raised $60,000 upfront from fans so they could tour the US in 1997.
