This recording has been a long time coming and is the closest thing to a 'studio' recording of personal, universal songs that I've done since 'When I Was A Boy'.

Three years ago, I asked my dear friend Peter Kiesewalter in NYC to do arrangements for the most universal songs from my recent 'Three Queens' trilogy. He got to work and did a wonderful job with his band BRO (Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata). Then I started getting nigglies that there was not enough 'me' in the music, much as I enjoyed it. So I rolled up my sleeves and have been doing 'sister' versions and adding a few new songs. This is a good example of what many artists go through, to their initial chagrin and surprise. Wild veering and seeming illogic. Then you get used to it. Then you get good at it. Building skills as a super- and supra-muse-tracker. Navigating faint deer trails towards open clearings. This circuitousness often leads to the music closest to your heart.

FINAL NOTES 1/ Though I have listed this campaign at $35,000, I am expecting costs to be more in $50,000 range so know that anything over the goal will not be wasted. 2/ SIGNED CD automatically comes with every contribution $25 and over. 3/ If you wish to give anonymously, please contact concierge@janesiberry.com

Risks and challenges

Risks completing this project? Death comes to mind. However, I'm close enough to completion that someone would only need to sing the songs and attend a photoshoot in a seedy part of town.
