Hello friends and backers!

It has been a thrilling couple of months planning every detail of every song and organizing all the musicians for recording! So far we've had two and a half days in the studio and have a LOT to show for it. At this point, every song is either completely recorded or almost there. Which is awesome! Gordon and I love our sound engineer, Nolan, at Bunker Studio because he really understands what we're trying to create and has tons of helpful input beyond just the technical. I'm really happy with the studio and everything we've recorded so far. I can't wait to share this music with you.

I think we will have a few more days in the studio to fine-tune and put finishing touches on the songs, and then the album will be complete! I'm predicting an early July release date. We just recorded upright bass and piano on a few songs and it sounds awesome! 

Here is a sneak peak of one of the covers:

 Woo!

We also had the fabulous Molly come into the studio to sing some harmonies, so look out for her sweet sounds on the album!

 Cool stuff. My brother Paul is working on the album art and my brother Brad may help design the CD insert, so it's really a family-teamwork kind of project! Yeay talented siblings! We are planning on having an album release party in New York in late July or early August, so I will keep you posted about that! And a west coast album release party in Orange as well!

But first we must finish recording. 

There's the update! I'll keep you lovely folks posted with more info as I have it! Enjoy your week!

XOXO Jill
