Dear supporters, loves, friends and frenemies,
I’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the creation of a music video for my next single, Shooting Star! Måns Ek (Nova’s brilliant producer) is forging a glittering new single-version of Shooting Star to accompany the music video — listen to the album version of Shooting Star below:
Shooting Star is an original electro-pop dance song, written by Erik Lidbom (co-writer of one of my favourite Kylie songs!), Johan Emmoth, with lyrics by pop maven Charlie Mason, and is featured on my debut pop album, Nova. The song details the two year, long-distance relationship with my (now) husband, between Melbourne, Australia and New York City at the beginning of our relationship.
Creating a video for Shooting Star will help us expose Nova to a wider audience. Donating is easy, and we’re offering a ton of little disco treats and rewards to our backers, including album downloads, concert tickets, and the opportunity to have a remix of Shooting Star named after you!
Please click through to donate to our campaign, and help us get the word out by sharing the Shooting Star with your friends!
My first music video, Jealous, was self-produced and self-funded, created with the incredible Mauricio Rodriguez of RAM Imagery, editor Andrew M, designer Justin Farnham, and the styling talents of genius costumiere and Pixie Harlot, Machine Dazzle. Jealous was written up in the Huffington Post, The Advocate, and on Accidental Bear, among others.
“Completely stellar…slyly subversive” – Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
“Pulsating, throbbing electro-dance realness…an effervescent introduction to the work of Mr Smith’s percolating, synth driven, bouncy pop. Mr. Smith brings the lyrics and music of the album into vivid focus, (Nova) is musical collaborative alchemy at it’s finest” – My Fizzy Pop
