About this project

I came to Austin to create music.  I started over in many ways.  I fell in love.  I became a mother.  I began my third record; and this recording shares this experience.  Please watch the attached video!

I have been playing in the Austin clubs, and recording backing vocals on many beautiful Texas artists' records.  I was also invited to perform the 2011 Aarhus Festival in Denmark, which was one of the greatest creative experiences of my life. 

I came home to Austin commited to finishing this recording.  I have recorded HALF of it!  I am raising the money through Kickstarter to Finish and Release this record.  I feel that I need this money, so that I can sieze the opportunities that have come my way in Texas and Abroad.  Finishing this recording and releasing it into the world is the next step towards keeping this momentum going. 

The funds raised would cover the cost of...the final recording sessions,  mixing, mastering, cover art design and photography,  and actual cd pressing and duplicaiton. 

I am very excited and grateful to be working with some of the best musicians in Texas - and in the country!  Bukka Allen and Brian Standefer will be producing the record.  Bukka will be playing keys.  Brian is playing cello.  George Rieff is playing Bass.  JJ Johnson is playing the drums.  Robbie Gjersoe and Charlie Sexton will be playing guitars. 

Thank you so much for your support with this record!  It is my intent to use this time wisely, and to give to others in a way that is true...and for me that is through Music and art.  I am really excited about ALL of the art that will come from this project.  I have created Incentives for your donations that I look forward to giving!  Please check out all of the different Incentives that I have posted on this page. 

Thank you and much love,  Sally Allen
