Fishing For Stars New Kids Album
Project 2018-09-03 12:50:53 +1200
Look out!!! Anna van Riel has created a brand new album for children up to age 12.
Fishing For Stars is packed with loads of dynamic, silly and fun songs for kids and it will be ready just in time for Christmas!
Following the lead of her award-winning children's album 'Cooking up a song, this album will also include introductory Te Reo Maori, action songs, lullabies and some farty nonsense too.
I would love your support in helping make this happen. The album will be ready in time for Christmas which will be a great treat for the little ones in your life! It's very easy to get involved. Simply choose your reward on the right and make your pledge!
Thank you for taking the time to check this out!
It's been three years since the release of my first children's album Cooking up a Song. It's taken being a Mum to really notice just how much music is constantly rolling around in my head. Having my own children has been the catalyst for recording all of these tunes.
Fishing for Stars is a collection of tracks that have either come out organically in five minutes or have brewed up over the past 3 years. I'm incredibly excited about this album and have included more songs for adolescent kids, while still keeping the balance there for pre-schoolers. I can't wait to be sending these out in the post to you and to hear the feedback from your children.
I have put together a great selection of rewards to give you in return for your contribution towards the album. My hope is that there is something in here for everyone here. One of my favourites would have to be the Music Lovers Gift Pack which you can find on the right ===>
|The funds raised will go towards covering the costs of album artwork, promotional material and manufacturing of the album. PledgeMe is an all or nothing site so if I don't get the full amount I'll receive nothing. So the goal is to share this campaign with as many people as possible to ensure we reach the target!||.....................|
WAYS TO HELP
Whether you are in a position to offer a financial contribution to this project or not I would like you to know that your support and energy are so welcome and incredibly valuable to me and to the success of this album!
If you want to help in ways other than financial support here are some things that would be of great help:
- Tell a friend about this project
- Post it on your facebook/twitter
- Call your local newspaper and see if they'd like to write a story about it
- Send a link to friends with children
- Ask your friends to pass it on
Thanks so much for taking the time to read - would love for you to be a part of this!
The People Behind Fishing For Stars- New Kids Album
Wanaka, Auckland and Beyond!
04:13PM Tue 23/10/18 on Fishing For Stars- New Kids Album
It's been an eventful few days, with some seriously big adventures in store leading up to the end of my campaign.
This weekend past I flew up to Auckland to hang out with Kiwi Kids legend Suzy Cato, and to film some episodes for her Suzy and Friends youtube channel. These will be out in November and December so keep your eyes peeled.
This weekend coming I will be filming and recording my new 'Give Love At Christmas' track and music video with my beautiful friend Kath Bee.
I've had some amazing successes on this campaign with one Wanaka early learning centre set to purchse 100 COPIES of the album for their tamariki! WOWEE!
I've had a few kindy's pre-purchase their Christmas concerts and some local venues have pre-ordered my grown up gigs too.
And of course YOU!!!!
Thank you to all of you who have pledged and ordered something from my campaign.
I've had so many of you also share to your facebook and instagram pages, to your friends nad families and to your own kindy's and schools.
So thank you!
I think we're gonna get there!!!
Love Anna xoxoxo

Bling up your instrument
11:21AM Wed 17/10/18 on Fishing For Stars- New Kids Album
Bling me up Scotty!
Score yourself a unique, handmade treasure for your instrument.
Purchase a copy of my new album 'Fishing For Stars' and you can also throw in a bit of fabulous bling to snazz up your instrument.
These handmade 'danglewotzitz' are created from upcycled treasure by me and my 7 year old daughter Matilda.
Matilda is saving for Disneyland and has been making jewelry to sell on her Little Betty's Treasure page on facebook, but she was kind enough to help me out in creating these little beauties for my campaign.
PLEASE NOTE: Danglewotzits will be randomly picked and posted. Because each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind you can be sure yours will be special.
