Making this album has been a labor of love. You are probably thinking "yeah, everyone says that." But please listen - It's been the biggest undertaking of my musical career, I got more musicians involved and spent more time in the studio, so much so that James kept on saying "are you done YET?" All the wonderful musicians lent their time and talent so generously - and all they got in return was some lousy Chinese take out, but they poured their hearts and talent into these songs. Each one of them was so fantastic to work with, I loved every minute of it and I am proud of what we accomplished. Then... I got pregnant. Hooray! I wanted to be a mom so it truly was a blessing and I was determined to carry on with my creative endeavors. I somehow managed to mix the album after my baby was born BUT somewhere between sleepless nights and dirty laundry, I lost my steam and the album was forgotten. Fast forward 4 years (yikes!) my little tyke is now in school, and I've found myself with more breathing room. I've been playing more shows, writing new songs and even playing a few out of town shows. I felt it's time. Finally it's time to give this incredible labor of love a proper introduction to the world!
This is where you come in. I am really proud of this album so I really want everyone to hear it! The manufacturing costs a lot, not to mention promotion. I'm planning on doing lots of hands on things regarding promotion but even then everything adds up. Website, music videos, etc. etc. Will you please help by pre-ordering the album?
Whatever we raise beyond $6000 will be used to plan a tour for this album. Kickstarter, as you probably know, is all or nothing, so if this funding is not successful, you won't be charged a dime.
We have tried to come up with rewards that are uniquely us and that we thought you might enjoy. Please check them out.
Your generosity means the world to us. Thank you so much for your support.

Risks and challenges
The album has already been recorded and mixed, I need your help to master the tracks and manufacture physical copies. Which will be somewhere in the region of $3000 then the rest will be spent on PR, because unless you toot your own horn, nobody will listen. That's the truth.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
