Fantastic News!

You all have been so amazing and patient and I can't thank you enough. It's just a few months away from being completed!!!! I was in Nashville last week working with a friend of mine to make it perfect. My super busy schedule prevented me from getting it done as quickly as I wanted and I'm sorry for that. I hope you all don't feel misled! It will be out soon and I promise it will be worth the wait!!!! I will send you all a copy of the first track when it's done which should be in about a month - just as a teaser and a thank you for all your patience!!!! :)

Great News!!!!

The scratch tracks are almost completed - for those of you who don't know what that means - it's one of two of the most time consuming parts of this project. Next step is the drums which is the second most time consuming! Once THAT is done then it will take next to no time to finish up this project! Thank you all so much for your patience. It's coming along nicely and I can't wait to share the finished product with all of you. Thanks for believing in me! I'm hoping for a November release. :) Just in time for the holidays!!!! Thanks again and if you have any questions at all about the project, by all means ask! 

HI EVERYONE!!!

Hello everyone, hope this finds you well –


I just wanted to say that I am sorry I haven’t updated anyone in some time. I haven’t forgotten about your generosity and am making good on that CD!!!! Since I have gotten my goal on kickstarter I have only had one full weekend off from playing! (Yes, five months of playing every weekend) SO, naturally I haven’t had the time it takes to put into the album. Just wanted to update all of you so that you didn’t think I ‘took the money and ran’.

My schedule is lightening up a bit in the upcoming weeks and have a schedule mapped out specifically for recording! Feel free to drop me a line and see how I’m progressing if you're at all curious. I will send out another update when the majority of it has been completed so that you know what day to set aside for the party of the year! (The CD release at the Barrel Saloon!) Thank you for your generosity and patience. I assure you, this will not be forgotten. Thank you all and have a great summer!

Love, Erin

Hello All!!!!!!

Sorry I haven't updated in a bit - I've been going CRAZY getting ready for Christmas (and getting all my ducks in a row for making this new CD thanks to you all!)

Tonight is my Christmas Spectacular at Savannah's and then the holiday with my family, but I wanted to write quick to let you all know I have not in any way forgotten you! 

I will start recording just after the first of the year - I've gotten most of the software I need to start this - plus narrowed it down to a couple different choice studios and EVEN lined up a pretty kick ass producer for some of it. 

If you have a CD coming your way, please send me your mailing address. I'm waiting on back orders of the older CDs and should have them just after Christmas. If you could also put "I WANT MY CDS" in the subject, it will help. This is not a joke. It helps me stay organized. Mail me at erinharkesband@yahoo.com

And if you have any questions or want to know how the project is going, feel free to ask. I'll do my best to get right back to you. 

Have a very Merry Christmas and thanks for giving met he best gift of all. - Love, Erin
