Project Overview

Steffi - under the stage name Zaeera - is working on an album as a singer and songwriter together with her band. They love to compose and write songs and meet every week for a band rehearsal.

Funding goals

  1. Stage 1:

    10.000 CHF

    10% funded

    It's going well! The songs have been successfully recorded and the mixing and maybe one or the other professional recording is just around the corner - so we can make it :D

    In this step we will also produce your goodies - but the costs for this are not covered at this point, which means that we will still finance it completely from our coffers.

  2. Stage 2:

    12.000 CHF

    0% funded

    It's slowly getting better and better and more professional! Further adaptations, additional relevant sounds and embellishments have been integrated by professionals for the songs.

    Now we just have to bring the work to life with the right measures...

  3. Stage 3:

    14.000 CHF

    0% funded

    For the right advertising measure, you always need visual material in addition to the sound - with the amount we now have enough money for the production of one or two music videos - yay!

    The costs for our cover pictures will be paid out of our own wallet :)

  4. Stage 4:

    16.000 CHF

    0% funded

    The marketing should of course not be missing... That way, nobody will ever find out about our diverse EP. The amount will cover a good third of the marketing costs.

    This includes digital and analog measures, as well as merchandise and other things that need to be created.

    What will be integrated in the end depends on the next step and on our band account - we will certainly pay some of it ourselves.

  5. Stage 5:

    18.000 CHF

    0% funded

    Final spurt! With this sum, part of the costs for the creation of your goodies and part of Crowdify's fees are now financed (11%). The remaining amount and 2 thirds of the marketing will be financed from our own funds.

  6. Finish Stage:

    19.000 CHF

    0% funded


    Now we finally have our EP in front of us - accompanied by 1-2 music videos - the marketing is now paid up to the hilt and the price is paid by ourselves and the foundations.

    We are overjoyed that we have made it this far thanks to each and every one of you!

    This is one of the most important and precious moments for our band.

    We are incredibly looking forward to the future and hope you like our EP so much that you will visit us at a future live concert and experience this unforgettable moment.

My grandmother always told me since I was 10 years old that I should become more confident and sing - her wish was that I never give up on my dream and fight for it.

For this reason and with my love for music, I always stick to it.

I want to make my grandmother proud - she watches me from heaven - when I sing, I always sing for her too.

In the main video of our project (at the top / beginning) you can hear the melody in the background and at the end even a small excerpt of one of our songs as a demo.

The video in this section is just a sample of the voice. It is a cover song which has nothing to do with our project.
ZAEERA - Die erste EP
I was born into a musical family and was already singing along to the songs on the radio as a child. My father played bass and electric guitar and had a band back in the analog age with which he played a few gigs on stage. His mother (my other grandmother on my father's side) was a very talented pianist. She loved playing her piano and passed on her skills to my uncle.

Every single one of us has a musical background in our family and grew up with music. For example, our electric guitarist takes after his father, who has also been one with his guitar for decades.

Our drummer experiments on djembes and cajons of all kinds and brings color and the right rhythm to our songs. He - as well as our bass player - also grew up with music and discovered their passion in it.

The name Zaeera no longer stands for the singer, who previously played as an individual artist, but embodies the whole band (although this remains her stage name).
ZAEERA - Die erste EP
I have been writing lyrics for several years now, but the creation of a song would not work without the choral progression of my guitarist.

I would therefore like to take this opportunity to express my special thanks to him - what would I do without you?

He would probably say at this point that it wouldn't work for him without the drummer in addition to the vocals - and the drummer would add that it wouldn't be half as cool without the baseline - and so on :D

That's why I'd like to add here that of course every single person in our team is just as important and I'd like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone! Without you, it wouldn't have come this far and I'm very grateful to be able to make music with you.

With your support we will cover the professional production of our EP. The remaining costs will be financed by our own funds and grants.

For us, this is more than just a project or just an EP realization - we have put all our heart and soul into the songs and firmly believe that together, with your help, we can bring this out into the world.

This project is the first milestone to present ourselves as a band and to inspire as many people as possible with our music.

As every single person is crucial for the realization, we would be just as grateful if you would tell others about this project - be it to your family, friends and acquaintances or at work - we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support! <3

We are convinced that together we can reach the target amount in these 50 days.

Singer and songwriter

So far I have been making music as a solo artist under the name "ZAEERA" - but my journey began much earlier - even as a child I sang every song by heart during car rides and recorded cover songs in the Photobooth app with my first Mac. Since then, I have continued to develop and have been able to learn a lot on my musical journey, overcome my fears and finally come out of my shell. The last step in this development was to become a band.

The name Zaeera should no longer only stand for me as a singer, but also embody the whole band (although it still remains my stage name).

Having grown up in Switzerland and grown up with music, we love to compose and write songs. Now we hope to take our first steps in the music world with our EP.

We would love to inspire you with our music too!
