I'm Courtney Allison. I'm an 18-year-old, Christchurch
based singer/songwriter, ready to release my debut EP. These are
five songs I wrote in a period of time where I moved out of my
parents' house, moved cities, lost my grandmother, started a new
school and met my partner of now over a year. They're about the
push and pull of life, the way time keeps pushing us forward and
shapes us, over and over again.
We are constantly taking on new forms, and these songs
represent who I've been over the last couple of years.
Hi, it's nice to meet you.
Unfortunately, as fun and poetic as songs are to write, they're
not cheap to bring to life. My partner and I are currently doing
our time as broke students, which, though it is great fun, doesn't
leave enough spare change lying around to record an acoustic EP,
let alone when there's a whole band involved. The proceeds from
this campaign will cover recording, photography, and rigorous
promotions, to ensure these songs get as far as they can.
My band consists of myself on guitar and vocals, my partner on
drums, his little brother on bass, and my manager's friend on lead
guitar. It's a real family affair. We have such a great time in our
little practice room crafting our sound, and we can't wait to share
it with you. Throughout the course of this campaign, I'll be
sharing lots of behind the scenes content. It's going to take your
help to bring this into existence, and so I want you all to see
where your money is going.
If you yourself cannot donate, please consider sharing my
campaign on Facebook or Twitter, or maybe giving it a shout out on
Snapchat or Instagram. Shares are just as valuable as a donation
and increase our chances of hitting the target.
If you have any questions about my plan for the EP or what I'll
be doing with the proceeds from this campaign, please let me know.
You can reach me via Facebook or
I'm excited to see where this campaign will take me, and to see
who will be coming along for the ride. My younger self never
believed we'd even get this far, let's show her how much further we
can take this.
1 DAY AGO
Hey everyone, we're $30 from 25%!
There's only 9 days left in this campaign, so we have an uphill battle to get the other 75%, but if you guys are willing to work with me I'm sure we can do it.
Please take a second to share this campaign to Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, whatever you have, feel free to use the below graphic. If you're not much of an online person, word of mouth is just as valuable.
Thanks for doing this with me,
Here's the interview:

A blocked nose led to some seriously lack-luster vocals, but that never stopped my band from being awesome!
