Benvenuti to the renaissance of carlofuda.com. I’m back. A little more raw, a lot more real. I’ll still share time-honored family recipes…but I’ll be writing a lot more about Italy, love, family, and life. I’ll be speaking my truth.
I’m also getting back into singing. I feel ready. With the relaunch of this site, I’m kicking off a GoFundMe Campaign to raise money for my next singing project.
A few years ago, I fulfilled a lifelong dream and released my first three original songs. I poured my heart and soul into each song and worked with amazing artists. You can hear them here.
It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life (and expensive), and now I’m ready to actualize my next project. I need your help to pay for it and make it the most awesome it can be.
I’ll be working with Sergio Mari of Hit Beat Records in Torino, Italy (my home away from home). It will be a trans-Atlantic project. I record here. He masters there. I worked with Sergio on my three originals and have already started on this project.
It will take more than $1500 to make it happen, but with your support, I’m going to work harder than I ever have in my life to make this a reality. I’m driven to push even more, save up, and make another dream come true.
Here’s where the money will go:
– Hit Beat Records Services (mixing, mastering, 2 songs)
– Bell Jar Creative (photos, graphics, single covers, artwork, video production)
– TBD Recording Studio (vocals)
– Distribution (iTunes, Amazon, etc.)
-Supplies (props, talent for video)
– Promotional Activities
2015 was a year of growth, change, and a new-found appreciation for myself. I’m not putting off “what I want and want to do.” I’m planning on releasing the first song and video in early Spring of 2016.
I don’t know what can come from this, but with contacts around the globe, I’m gonna spread it like sunshine.
I’ve picked out two songs – one I remember listening to with my mother on records when I was like 3. The other, from my first solo trip to Italy, reminds me of the passion and courage I felt on that trip. Risorgimento. Rise again. That’s where I feel I am right now – thrown into my own renaissance. Like me, I’m taking two older songs and giving them new life. I’m ready to share some T, some fun, and some life with everyone. I’m ready. Like never before.
I’ve lost 65 pounds this year. I’m the healthiest, physically and mentally, than I have ever been, and I’m not yet where I need to be. But, I’m heading there each day. I’m doing this for me, time to elevate my shit, and in addition to any financial help, your support and encouragement during this process is immeasurable. Thank you.
Grazie! If you believe in chasing your dreams and in me, please donate and share at my GoFundMe Campaign. Everything counts. And that goes for donations and life. 😉
