So the album is finished! Everything has been sent out and is currently being pressed as we speak! They said it should take about 3 weeks. So here's the game plan.. Once everything is pressed and in my possession, I'm going to start by creating a downloadable version of the album. Depending upon your reward, first you will get an e-mail with a link to either download the first single or the entire album. This link will be active for a short period of time in which only you will have access to. After that I am going sign, personalize and mail out physical copies of the album to everyone whose rewarded one. I will also mail out all the other rewards and merchandise packages at this time as well. After that we will set up a date for our pizza party and the private concert for Claudia Sanchez and whoever she invites.. Once all the rewards have been completed, then the album will be released to the public through I-tunes and my web-site. You can brag to your friends that you will have my unreleased album and soon I'll have a release date so you can tell them when they'll be able to get it. I'm guessing it's going to be around mid March. Anyway if you haven't sent me your mailing address yet please do so.. I'm sooo excited to share this music with you. I hope it does as much for you as it has done for me!
So I just sent a lot people messages saying that I'm writing the thank you's for the album now and I needed your last name. If you got one of those messages please get back to me as soon as possible. So recording the album has been an amazing process and everything has been coming together smoothly. I'm so happy with the way the mixes sound right now and after a few more changes they're going to be perfect. I'm really excited about getting all the artwork together and sending everything out to get pressed. My sister Amanda has been working on a painting that will be the front cover. It's beautiful! Soon it will be time to start focusing on your rewards! I'm so excited to send you this album. The way things have been going I think I may be able to pull off having a February release date. That means releasing the album to the public meaning I-tunes e.c.t. so if that's the case, then I plan to have cd's pressed and mailed to you by the end of January! I'm going to need everyone's address and contact information. We still have some time but I figured it's best to get this done now so I'm not stuck like I am now, not having "last names" for my thank you's. So when you can please message me the address where you'd like for me to mail your cd or package. Also add a contact number in case I need to call you for some reason. Thanks so much everyone! I hope you fall in love with this album the way I have!!!
So we're just about at the end of this project and we still haven't met the funding goal. If it's not met then no one will be charged and no money will be raised whatsoever... Ouch.. However I still have faith that we can make this happen! I really need your help NOW. There's only 3 days left so it's our last chance to make a big push and remind all those people who have been waiting till the end. I added a couple new rewards so check them out and please help me spread the word. I really can't thank you enough! This album really means so much to me...
I can't believe that after only one day I've already received more than 20% of the funding goal! That's amazing! Don't think any of your support is going unnoticed by me. Each time someone contributes it sends a message to my phone telling me who you are and your contribution. From my family to friends I can't thank you all enough!
