When I was 9 years old…All right, I'm kidding! My telling won't start so "far along"…!
Hi! My name is Miriam, and my whole life I've been chasing one only goal…which luckily doesn't easily slip away from my "catch".
When I turned 18, with a leather jacket, a guitar on my shoulder, and My Music in the pocket, I started wandering…something that is sweet to me, as sweet the "sinking" was to Leopardi…researching, often unconsciously, for encounters, confrontations, and stories that could have mingled with mine.
Once I completed my academic studies with a degree "cum laude", in "Popular Music - Contemporary Writing and Production" at the "Luisa D'Annunzio" Conservatory, in Pescara, I started a real "manhunt"…which gave me the most amazing team in the world, composed by: Angelo Marrone (at the keyboards), Matteo Teodoro (at the bass), Valerio Camplone (at the drums), Denise Iaciancio, which makes our life easier, and Coco Bucci, that guides us from overseas.
In November 2013 my first Single "Stratega" was published, entirely written, composed and arranged by me, and I started to bring more and more My Music on stage, enjoying the energy, the enthusiasm, and the affection of the people listening and participating even for the first time.
A series of wonderful events happened, such as: the participation at the "Aspettando il primo maggio" festival, in Teramo, performing as the opening artist for the concerts of Eugenio Finardi, Marina Rei, Modena City Ramblers, and "Le Luci Della Centrale Elettrica"; the participation at the "Premio Pigro", dedicated to Ivan Graziani; the victory of the "Saranno Calibri" contest, held by Radio Delta 1, till the arrival in Berlin, on summer 2014, with a mini-German tour.
The next target
Now it's time to move forward: a new record and a promotional tour to let my music reach the most people possible...and for that, "PostePay" dared me with a challenge: find 100 users (minimum) willing to support my project with a donation.
For each donation that would be charged on the user's payment card, there would be a "reward", (only if the funding reaches the total amount pre-established).
The first 5 projects that will reach the amount of 5000€ of funding within the 4th July 2015, will receive other 5000€ more from "PostePay", to support and realize their own project! Plus, the winners will have the opportunity to compete for the selection as the opening artists for the concert of Subsonica at the "Rock in Roma" festival, on 20th July 2015.
The crowdfunding campaign
Gaining this funding would allow me not only to record and release my record physically, (yes, "physically", because I still consider a "material" record fascinating, in an irreplaceable way, especially when in 2015 we are next to the computerization even of our morning coffee!), but also to invest in the circulation of this record, and in the planning of a real promotional tour.
Who should support this crowdfunding campaign? Those who still believe that the most irrepressible Passion, constant dedition, and willpower are still the strongest means to make a dream become a concrete project.
The invitation is to "join my team": become the first "producers" of this project!
I've always loved challenges…I've always faced them and even when they seemed to be insurmountable, I managed to win them, especially with the help and support and affection of all the people that I met on my road.
This is a further challenge to face together.
"Eyes on the prize!".
