Rockhampton singer-songwriter Sophie Rose Blackman has launched a crowdfunding campaign to bring her latest album, Reawakened, to life.
Sophie has been working on Reawakened throughout 2018, and the crowdfunding aims to raise $4,000 for the final production and distribution costs.
It’s been a labour of love and self-discovery for the young artist.
“I went on an incredible journey to record it with the great Bill Chambers, a hero of mine since childhood,” Sophie says.
“Thanks to working with Bill and some of the best session musicians Australia has to offer, I can safely say that this is the album I have always been working towards.
“This has been a year of self-growth, acceptance and love. These songs represent who I am now as a person and I desperately want to share them with the world. I hope that they can reach the people who need them just like other people’s music has helped me.”
The album was born of a meeting between Sophie and Bill Chambers, after Kasey Chambers’ Rockhampton show in late 2017.The Journey
“I told him I was about to start working on my next album and he gave me his details and told me to send him what I have so far.
“He told me that if he liked it then he would be happy to help us record it at his studio. A dream come true.”
You can help make the dream a reality by contributing to the crowdfunding campaign by December 1, 2018.
