Most probably you also watched each video chapter and I’m sharing here the link to the full movie (15min) 🎞️ Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel !

I got the opportunity to talk about this project with several media such as the 24heures newspaper, the Femina magazine, etc. 📰 I was also invited by RTS La Première, got interviewed by two Geneva-based independant media, etc. 🎙️ everything’s on my website ! 🌐

I’m having fun writing each of you (and more!) a personal thank-you note coming along with your reward, you should get them by the end of the month ! 📝✒️

Dear backers,

I’m back with exciting news : the premiere of my visual album ’The Calling’ will take place at D! Club on Tuesday evening November 16th !! 🎉 Mark it in your agenda ! More info coming soon… 🤩

’BETTER’ IS OUT !By Laura Scaglia, on 24/09/2021

’BETTER’ IS OUT ! 💎💘⚡

You can now stream it on your favorite platform and watch the official music video : https://streamlink.to/laurascaglia

Like the other tracks on the EP, ’Better’ addresses a topic close to my heart : domestic violence. It depicts the subtlety of a wavering love-hate relationship in a dysfunctional couple whose dark side takes over and leads to violence (verbal or physical). The lyrics resonate with an unacknowledged truth and blend with the trembling sounds of an electro-pop ballad. It is meant to open dialogues and help reduce the judgment felt by those who have the courage to come forward.

This artwork was once again made possible thanks to your help and support and I can’t thank you enough for taking part in this journey. ✨💌

Next step : the release of the full project in November 🤩 I’ll share more info soon, stay tuned ! Till then, make sure you follow me on social media !

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

Laura Scaglia

I was live on RTS ! 🎙️📻By Laura Scaglia, on 18/08/2021

A couple of days ago I was live on RTS La Première (n°1 national Swiss radio and TV channel) interviewed by Laurence Froidevaux for a morning of great talk and musical emotion 🎙️✨🎶

A great opportunity to promote my visual album and perform live three of its songs :

  1. Wanna Dance : released on July 2, go listen to it and watch the video if you haven’t yet !
  2. Better : coming out on September 17th (that’s my subtle way of announcing the next song’s release date) 🎉
  3. Freeride : the last chapter of the EP and will be released this fall

Listen to the full show on RTS Replay 🎧 https://www.rts.ch/play/radio/redirect/detail/12378801

Thanks to the media team and my musicians ! And thanks to you again for supporting this artistic journey ! 💌

Wanna Dance is now available everywhere !By Laura Scaglia, on 04/07/2021

It’s only been 2 days Wanna Dance is out there and I am filled with love from all of you ! Thank you !! ✨🎶

Here is the link to access it : https://linktr.ee/laurascaglia Make sure you wear headphones to boost the feeling ! 🎧

Reaching this level of quality requires many hours of hard work. Hats off to the whole team, crew and cast who have gone above and beyond to deliver such a beautiful piece of art. Full credits are on the video description.

As a reminder, Wanna Dance is the fourth chapter of my visual album. The next one will soon be released… but before that I wish you a great summer vacation ! Stay tuned !

WANNA DANCE is coming out this Friday !By Laura Scaglia, on 30/06/2021

Dear backers,

It is with great excitement I announce the release of the first single this Friday July 2 ! 🎉

Wanna Dance is the fourth (IV) chapter of my visual album and is being released first as it’s addressing a specific topic for this pride month : love beyond genders 🏳️‍🌈

I am very grateful to have you on board this adventure and counting on your support is key to its success. You know the power of the internet and social media : it’s only through the likes and shares we will make this project reach a broader audience.

🎶 : Friday morning, the song will be available on all streaming platforms.

🎥 : Saturday noon, I’ll be waiting for you on YouTube for the avant-première of the video clip.

I’ll soon share all the links !

Before that, make sure you follow this journey on all platforms like Spotify, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, etc.

Last but not least, I am working on your rewards and will keep you updated over summer ! ✨

Thanks again for your support, this teaser should keep you on your toes !

Update & Radio InterviewBy Laura Scaglia, on 14/03/2021

Dear backers,

A quick message to let you know that tomorrow (Monday) at 18h05 I’ll be live on Rouge FM to talk about my project and the success of this crowdfunding ! 📻✨

I also got a «bourse» from Canton de Vaud for Artistic Research & Development to keep on exploring innovative ways of creating and promoting art 🎉📜

To keep you updated on the operational status : since my last news we’ve finalized the video editing and color grading. We are also working on the last few edits on the songs mix, I was lucky to get feedback from professionals within the industry. 🎶

On the promotional side, the current covid siuation doesn’t help and I can’t give you yet a release date but I am working on exploring different strategies…

Thanks again for your support, let’s stay in touch and tune in tomorrow ! 🔥

THANK YOU !!!By Laura Scaglia, on 03/01/2021

THANKS - MERCI - GRAZIE - DANKE !!! ✨

From Switzerland, Italy, France, Denmark, Canada, Austria, the USA and the UK … you’ve shown support in bringing this visual album to life. Raising CHF 15’000 in 13 days was ambitious… and we made it ! I am very grateful to have such a diverse and strong community supporting my musical carreer and believing in it ! 🎶

The coming weeks are dedicated to the post-production and the search for partners to distribute and promote the visual album.

I will keep you updated and share some «behind the scenes» through my social media and newsletter, follow and subscribe if you haven’t yet !

Wishing you all a healthy and entertaining new year ! 🎊 Excited to show you what I’ve been working on !

Interview RedLine RadioBy Laura Scaglia, on 26/12/2020

J’étais dans la matinale d’Alex mercredi matin sur RedLine Radio pour parler de mon crowdfunding !

@Alex : «T’aurais pas été engagée par une chaîne payante rouge qui fait TOUDOUM comme ça, qui commence par N et qui fait «flix» ?! Parce que ce que tu es en train de nous proposer c’est un peu ce qui est très à la mode : une mini-série.»

@Laura : (rires) «C’est exactement ça, c’est une mini-série. Qui au total durera 15 minutes, si on met les épisodes bout à bout on pourrait regarder ça comme un court-métrage en une fois.»

Plus que 3 jours pour prendre part au succès de ce projet unique ! 🎶🎞️

Petit rappel sur le principe du crowdfunding : c’est tout ou rien… et il nous manque CHF 3’000 pour atteindre l’objectif ! 💯 Alors clique sur ce lien et choisis ta contre-partie !

Merci pour ton précieux soutien ! 🏻

Coup de boost !By Laura Scaglia, on 23/12/2020

Merci pour tous vos dons, partages et messages d’amour !! ✨🏻

Grâce à votre soutien, WeMakeIt a placé le projet dans ses «coups de coeurs» et Swisscom Music Booster a contribué au financement participatif ! 🎉

On est loin d’avoir fini, il vous reste 6 jours pour lever la deuxième moitié de la somme fixée et ainsi soutenir ce projet atypique. Pour rappel, le principe du crowdfunding c’est tout ou rien… alors je compte sur vous !! 💪

Besoin d’un petit boost de motivation … ?! Je vous ai préparé une nouvelle vidéo, présentant ma collaboration avec Mei Fa Tan et incluant quelques extraits de ses précédents travaux 🎞️✨ Enjoy !
