It's Happening! Goodies coming your way!

Comment

Hi folks! What a ride it's been. I'm in the very final stages of album production. In a few weeks the album will be done and your care packages will be sent out to you. I'm preheating the oven for those cookies! Thanks so much for your support and your patience! It's an exciting time to be alive - no?

Many Blessings on a sunny and fruitful Summer,

All my best,

Caressa


Update #7

Whoo Hoo!!! We Made It!!! Thank You So Much!!!!

Comment

Well folks, we made it to the goal of $6K! Thank You! I am so excited to have a budget to make this record.. Still a few more days to go and every dollar over the goal will help to put together the studio and make the best possible record. Thanks so much for your support. I definitely wouldn't be able to make this record in the same way without you guys!!! Feeling really blessed and thankful right now. I had a great show at the Marlin last night in Fairbanks and have really been feeling the love here. Getting ready to go back home on Tuesday and I've got a show in Homer on Nov 18th (final day of the Kickstarter) - which will now officially be a celebration for a successful Kickstarter campaign. Thanks to You!!!!!!!

All My Love and Gratitude,

Caressa

2 comments

Dear Awesome Kickstarters~

Thank you so much for contributing to this project!!! You are making it happen!!! We passed 75% this morning and I am so upful about making our goal. Hopefully tonight's broadcast will help!

Tonight at 10 PM (Alaska Time) - so 11 PM Cali time - I will be performing on KUAC's Alaska Live TV Program. This is an hour long program, mostly performance with a bit of interview! It will broadcast live in Fairbanks, Bethel & Southeast - but not in Anchorage or the Kenai peninsula.

HOWEVER - You can sign up for the podcast and hear it at your leisure!!! Click below:

ALSO - I believe you can LiveStream the program here:

Needless to say I am quite excited about it and the fact that this morning we passed the 75% marker... I can't really say Thank You enough!!!!I want to wish everyone a happy full moon - and consider yourselves all hugged very enthusiastically!  THANK YOU!!!

All my love,

Caressa

Update #5

Just a little over HALF-WAY!

Hey guys! 


Thanks so much for all the support - we are just a little over the half way mark - and I am getting ready to head to Fairbanks on Thursday where I will be playing shows and promoting the Kickstarter project on the TV and Radio! If you haven't told your friends and family about the project - now is an opportune time.... because if I don't make the goal of $6,000 by 8:11 pm on Nov 18th - then I don't get any of the funds... So perhaps you know some other supporters of independent art and music that would like to get on board? I'd appreciate it so much! And thanks again for your all you have already done to make this project a big success. Couldn't do it without you!

Love and Light,

Caressa

PS - here's a sneak preview of a song that will be on the new album.. this is just a demo version - but I hope you enjoy! Blessings!
