Neema - Painting My Wall Gold

Postby MarieM » Tue Feb 09, 2016 12:19 pm

Neema is hoping to release a new record, Painting My Wall Gold. She has a PledgeMusic page started to raise the funds for the release. She recorded the album while she was pregnant with her son and says that the record has "a lot of hope, love, acceptance and peacefulness poured into it."

Check out her PledgeMusic page here:

If you are not familiar with Neema, she is a friend of Leonard's from Montreal. Her previous record was Watching You Think. Here are a couple of youtubes of her performing songs from that record.

I've just pledged! With 13 days to go, it will be great if Forum members can help NEeMA achieve her goal, as they did with Hattie Webb's "To the Bone". NEeMA's previous album "Watching You Think" is one of the great albums from ladies associated with Leonard (check out my review on amazon.co.uk). NEeMA's forthcoming album "Painting My Wall Gold" sounds very uplifting, from the track played on the video, so I'm very much looking forward to hearing the completed work.

Here's one of my favourite NEeMA songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQEZ3HqUT4k

It's great to see that NEeMA'S percentage of pledges has almost doubled in the last couple of days!

Good to see that NEeMA has gone from 13 to 34 per cent in the last couple of weeks. However with only 4 days left to reach her target, surely there are more people who will at least pledge to buy her CD?

Wow! A sudden leap to 65 per cent today...this is incredible (at this rate, NEeMA might reach her target in time).

Now 92%. She's so close. Check out her PledgeMusic page. There's lots of cool stuff you can get with the purchase of her record: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/neema

Also Neema has a video "Angel Undercover - 'the making of' the music video," interesting to see how much goes into the making these videos and how the song developed, including a lyric contribution from Leonard:
