Hi! I’m Benny from the rock band, Shadowary.
Writing and singing songs is how I deal with my emotions. Music gave me an outlet for my frustration, anger and also to share my joy with the world.
I want to do the same for you.
My favorite band is Linkin Park. When Chester Bennington passed away, I was devastated. I think depression sucks and I want to help combat that.
I want to write music that you can relate to, sing along to and lift you up when you’re down.
And when the song is over, I want you to feel better than you did before. I want you to be inspired.
The money raised will be used to record the final track of our album, shooting a music video and promoting them.
You’ll be getting rewards like personalized thank-you videos, hand-drawn cards, signed albums, music video apperances and private house concerts.
By contributing to my campaign, you’ll not only be making my dreams come true, you’ll also be lifting heavy hearts – one song at a time.
Please donate today!

// Who am I?
I’m Benny Ng – singer, songwriter, producer from Sydney, Australia. Shadowary is my rock band. I’ve also been a singing teacher and primary/secondary school music teacher for the past 7 years.
// How did this project come about?
I wrote a song called “All Alone”, recorded and posted it onto SoundCloud and YouTube.
Not long after, I was approached by Leon Berger of Hit Music Producers Inc (http://www.hitmusicproducersinc.com.au). Leon is a music producer/writer with several ARIA Awards and three No. 1 entries on ARIA national charts.
Leon offered to be my mentor and proposed to produce, arrange, record, mix, master a 4-track EP for me (and my band) at a reduced cost as he saw immense potential in my music.
// What is involved?
1. Completing a 4-track EP (album) – three tracks have already been finished using my own funds; one more track to go
2. Filming a music video
3. Promoting the EP and music video on social media platforms
// How will the money be spent?
Final (4th) Track of EP (recording/mixing/mastering) – 1500
Music Video – 2000
Marketing Campaign – 1500
// Estimated delivery dates for rewards
Personalized Thank-You Video – within 2 days of pledge/donation
Hand Drawn Card – December 2018
EP (Album) – December 2018
Cipher Room Experience – October 2018
Yoga Classes – October 2018
Vocal Lessons – date negotiable
Private Concert – October/November 2018
Music Video Appearance – December 2018
And it is all over!
Now... it may BEGIN!
Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!
Despite not reaching our goal of $5,000, we still managed to raise enough $$ to finish recording our EP!
That is a big win in my book.
Since our fan base is still growing, I had to rely mostly on personal contacts and you all came through for me :)
A lot of hard work has been put into this campaign and I worked hard during every single one of the last 37 days.
I'm deeply pleased with the results and now the real work begins.
For our recent supporters, you might have missed out on a funders-only update. In that update, I announced that our debut EP will be called "MANIFEST".
The reason was because your generous contributions helped us manifest this EP into reality.
When you get your hands on the EP, you can look at it and proudly say: "I helped make this happen."
I will be sending out another email to let you know of the delivery dates and status of your rewards.
There are now 5 days left of the campaign. I’m happy to announce that we almost have enough funds to finish recording our EP.
You’ve gotten us this far and I’m forever grateful.
I want to let you in on a secret. I’ve decided on a name for our debut EP.
I’m calling it: MANIFEST.
The reason for that is because you have helped us manifest this EP through your generous support. When it is finally completed and released, you can proudly look at it and say: “I helped make this EP a reality.”
If you’d like to help us get a final push towards our goal amount, please share our campaign link (https://readyfundgo.com/project/shadowarymusiclaunch/) with your friends and family.
Thank you for being a part of our community.
Thank you for helping us get past the 25% mark!
There are 14 days left of our campaign and it is picking up steam.
