Fischy Crowdfunds New Songs

Wednesday October 2 2019

 

Scottish Christian charity Fischy Music is running a crowdfunding appeal to produce its next set of songs.

The appeal, which will fund the creation of 10 brand new songs and make them available through online platforms, is already more than half way to its target of £28,990.

Fischy, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, produces and performs songs aimed at supporting children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing. About half of all Scottish primary schools have sung their songs, hundreds of schools are subscribed to their online services, and their YouTube channel has nearly half a million views.

The crowdfunding appeal sets the cost of developing one song at £2,890, which covers the initial writing and road-testing, recording, filming a video, producing the supporting materials and releasing it. The new material will be available through two online platforms: Fischy Music Online, the online subscription platform for schools and organisations; and the new website fischytunes, which is initially targeted at children facing significant loss and grief in their lives.

Introducing the campaign, founder and creative director Stephen Fischbacher says: “We believe in the transformative power of songs to support and nurture young people through good times and tough times…  over the next three years Fischy songs will be sung to, danced to, cried to, shouted and gone to sleep to by hundreds of thousands, possibly millions, of young people.”

Fischy performer Suzanne Butler adds: “As part of (our) twentieth anniversary, hundreds of young adults told us that Fischy Music has been significant to them, that it’s helped them with their confidence and just about all of them told us that it made them feel happy. And they also told us that they want the next generation of children to experience the same thing.”

The appeal closes on October 10. You can find out more and donate at http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/newfischysongs
