Jessica Lá Rel is a recording artist that harnesses the power of music for social change. Lá Rel is raising $35K in 2017 to record her upcoming album entitled War Love. War Love explores the challenges of loving oneself and others in a divisive world.

My name is Jessica Lá Rel and I am a recording artist. I'm currently working on a full length album entitled WarLove. WarLove explores the challenges of loving oneself and others in a divisive world.

The album will be spearheaded by Kenny Corso, the same producer who worked with me on my debut EP, Four Freedoms, and it would be assistant produced by Tyler Eaglebable Brooks - a long standing musical partner of mine.

The project timeline would take place over the third and fourth quarter of 2017 with the hope of releasing the album in the second quarter of 2018. But this process cannot begin without funding, which is where you come in.

Recording is a costly endeavor. I've done it before. I hope to do it again. But in order for this to continue I need us to do it together.

Each song costs about $2K to produce. With a 10 track album, that is $20K to produce a full length record. Distribution easily can cost another $1000. Album Art and Graphics $1500, and Promotion $3K. Each Music Video costs between $3K and $4K. So the goal is to raise $35K in pledges for 2017.

My last project cost $10K to produce, and about $20K total after additional costs. I lived off of half of what I made to front those costs myself. If I could continue to do that, I honestly would. But there are plenty of longstanding recurring costs involved. So I am asking for your help.

To give you can go to fundrazr.com/jessicalarel, click donate, and indicate the amount you are willing to give - as a one time donation or monthly pledge. We are hoping to have $35K committed for 2017 by March 1st.

  • For those that give $30 monthly or a one time gift of $300 you will receive our Signature package which includes: a free digital download of the album and some Jessica Lá Rel merchandise.
  • For those that give $70 monthly or a one time gift of $700 you will receive our Premier package which includes a private serenade via Skype or Facetime and 2 VIP tickets to a private premier release event for the record
  • For those that give $100 monthly or a one time gift of $1000 you will receive the Producer’s package which includes being listed as an executive producer on the record, having access to 2 hours of studio time during the recording of WarLove and access to rough mixes from recording sessions.

Time is moving quickly, if you plan to give make your donation today. I cannot do this without you. But I truly believe that together we can make the music we've been longing to hear.

Will you join me?
