My lovely backers!
My mixes are FINISHED :)
It was my dream to have John Fields mix my record.. and it came true! The two of us have been tweaking mixes over cyber space back and forth from LA to Nashville.. And it's just perfect.. I can't wait for you all to hear it!! He really made every song come to life just like I imagined they could..
Mastering is happening next! Photo shoot this Wednesday the 6th of June with my amazing friend and photographer Sarah Barlow...Then I can put everything all together in a package and send it to you! It's ALL happening!!
I'm playing CMA fest this week in nashville on the 7th at the Hard Rock Cafe.. please come if you're in town :) It'll be hot, but it'll be fun!
I have a lot of songs to sing, packages to send, skype calls to make, and I can't wait to connect with all of you. As soon as I get the CD pressed, i'll be able to get to all of them. :)
In other news, I Make My Own Sunshine is getting such a wonderful response from being featured on the new Lowe's Commercial.. Thank you all for listening to it. I can't believe I've gotten over 20,000 downloads of that song off iTunes! A new mix of that song is featured on the new record.. sounds SOO gooddddd! John Fields is a master.
Love you all. Thank you for making my dreams come true!
