3 months ago i launched this campaign. i am SO happy and excited to tell you, that THIS beautiful blue chevy van IS MY NEW HOME!!! :-D EACH OF YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN and are a PART of this vehicle! ;-) it is HUGE for a van but SMALL for an apartment! lol. i am SOOOOOO excited to get work on the conversions!!! :-) we found her in knoxville, tennessee & i've been lovingly calling her Blue Bell. (although jason has been calling her Blue Steel) ha ha ha.
the maiden voyage begins Jan 3rd (as you will see we are heading south!) www.nikkitalley.com/shows
we want to thank each of you and also let you know your rewards are in the works! i'm collecting all your info (addresses/emails) over the next week. i have lots of songs to learn and put on youtube, cds to put in the mail and other stuff to get together for you sweet folks. :)
we will also be filming/blogging a lot of our adventure so keep an eye out on www.nikkitalley.com
THANK YOU again for being a part of one of the biggest steps i've taken in my career. :-) and we hope to see you SOON IN YOUR TOWN! :-)
as i write this, there is about ONE HOUR left in this campaign...30 days ago, the moon was full and i was excited, nervous, & crossing fingers. thru the kindness and generosity from YOU backers, i not only reached my goal, i EXCEEDED my goal...i cannot wait to start on your "THANK YOU REWARDS!" you so deserve!! EVERY dollar is going into a down payment for a tour van...i will of course post pics and keep you posted...as you are PART of this journey. :) i am planning to be on tour full time in the next year. i cannot wait to hit the road and share my music all over this land. :) from the bottom of my heart, i wanna thank you and tell you how much it means to me that we did this TOGETHER. i could have NEVER been able to pull this off without you. old highschool friends/teachers, people who've come to my shows, my mom, new/old/close/distant friends,family, fan-ily, friends of friends (who i have never met!), strangers who saw the campaign online and liked the music enough to pledge, fellow musicians/artists...folks from california to key west to st louis to florida to my sweet home in western north carolina and beyond: i thank you and send you love and light. please know that you have done something that is probably my biggest professional achievement to date. my heart is full...and my head is bouncing w/ maps on my next move!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY FOR ME! :) <3
