My Name is Natalie Gauci and I am a singer, songwriter, and producer. I am the winner of Australian Idol 2007. I am crowd funding to get direct engagement from my fans, by asking you to vote for the songs on my new album - which is titled:
By placing snippets of my back catalogue of songs on Soundcloud for people to hear and vote for their favourites, songs which have been written, produced and recorded and unreleased.. which will then be mastered and collated into an album which you will then receive. This album could evolve into a double album!... or even an Anthology!
I want to know what it is YOU want and how my music makes you feel and in return, I will give you special gifts and take you on The Real Journey, of where I was, what I did, and how these songs were written. As you can see, I love telling stories, especially ones that mean something and that could possibly change someone's life.
Here is the direct private link to my music on Soundcloud which includes all the songs which you can vote for:
Throughout this campaign, I will be uploading unreleased photo's, videos and experiences which will be exclusive to Phundee.com.
I love performing live. I like being unique and creative. Recently I performed at Ted x London with Talvin Singh (Indian Tabla) and Tuba!
I also had the pleasure of recently performing at Sofar Sounds London at Tyleyard studio!
Use of funds
The funds will be used to digitally market and promote the album. The album is called The Real Journey. These funds will go toward a small digital release with a PR company here in the UK and in Australia through social media. This about building a community from the grass roots up through social media platforms, then letting it grow from there.
Funds at 70%
With your support, positive feedback and social networking, achieving our goal we will complete this project whether we have 70%, 80% 90% 100% or 200%!
Hurdles & Hopes
After winning Australian Idol and achieving my goals, I felt an over all sense of detachment and I lost my identity. I went on a soul search to find out answers as to why I felt this way and during this time I wrote a lot of music. Through my pains and struggles I wrote music that healed me and transformed my life. This is the music that has travelled with me for the past 8 years and more. I call it The Real Journey.
Me at home writing music... 2015.
Because it is my truth through lyrics and melodies, I used my instincts without compromise and recorded what I believed to be the songs I imagined in my heart, mind and soul.
I hope that you like my music and can relate to it and I hope it inspires you in some way to also achieve your dreams and desires and know that you are not alone in your experiences. I want to reconnect with my fans from the grass roots up, their friends and family and friends of friends. Happiness to me, is to do what you love, and for a purpose - whether your famous or not.
Me in the studio... creating the tunes... 2014.
This is me preparing for a private Barn party June 2016! One of the AMAZING REWARDS!!
I get to say Hi to the cows too...
another special reward!... A personalised polaroid - I will sign it too!!
Thank you so much for your support and for backing this project!!! Can't wait to release the new album - The Real Journey.

More about the BIG DREAM...
Hope your week is going well and you are exceeding your expectations!!!
This pic was taken when I first arrived into London and received my first paid job at Cannons High School, 2012. It was the best school I ever had the privilege to teach in.
On the back of the classroom in big letters it said... "ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS" and my intention was always to fill their hearts with confidents to be able to do just that!
I look forward to receiving your votes and vote as many times as you like!
Lots of love,

Hope you all had a fun weekend!
Thank you to everyone who have been voting, it is so exciting to have you involved in choosing the songs for my new Album. I am so happy to have your input. I have had some great feedback that there are two albums worth of material... and I am wondering what your thoughts are about releasing a double album?? And doing something a bit different... like releasing in it two parts... a winter album and a summer album or something along those lines.
I have some new video blogs coming out explaining the stories behind the music, which will be short chapters, like auto biographical chapters which showcase parts of my story that haven't yet been revealed I gave a little bit of my story and an impromptu performance, to some friends and new fans at a picnic on Saturday night ...
I have also made a little home video blog with thank you's and shout outs...
I am loving your comments and feed back!!! Keep em coming!
Lots of love,
