Unwoman is seeking Kickstarter funds for Of My Own Space and Time I Am Queen, her eighth original album and 14th overall. The singer/composer/cellist describes it as the product of soul-searching over the past year, with “a lot of serious topics, very middle-aged topics.”
Backers will get the album in July before its official release. A pledge of $1 or more will entitle you to a download. Songs are also available to her Patreon supporters and Bandcamp subscribers.
Unwoman frequently performs at steampunk events. Circling, her sixth original album, received the 2015 Steampunk Chronicle Reader’s Choice Awards for Best Solo Musician and Best Album. She says it’s still her favorite album. Compared with War Stories, her last original album, “Circling has a more consistent vibe and theme, and I think Of My Own Space and Time I Am Queen has that as well,” she writes.
The campaign launched March 8 and quickly passed its US $6,000 fundraising goal. It runs through April 9. See the Kickstarter page for more info.
