This will be my first time recording my original music with a full band and I look forward to watching it grow. Thanks for visiting!

The donations go through your amazon account, so don't fear the account info!

I moved to New York City thirteen years ago and I'm moving back to my hometown in Dallas, Texas this summer, so I want to fulfill a dream before I go.  I want to record a complete album of original music with a band and a producer, and along with it I am going to shoot a video and throw a HUGE CD release/going away party here in New York, AND in Dallas after I move.  I can't wait to get started, so thanks for your help!

The money will be used to pay for musicians (yes!!), production and studio time, printing, vidoegraphy and party planning for the releases in NYC and Dallas.  If I surpass my goal of $10,000 I will use the extra money for promotion and publicity and possibly even a second video :) **I will take all the time needed to make a great album.  I will be working between New York AND Dallas** 

I will also be chronicling the progress of the album on my blog http://mariselathevoice.com/category/90-days-to-dallas so you will have a front row seat through my journey!     

Special thanks to Lacy for shooting the video!
