~~ 9/11/11 ~~ Just a few more hours to PRE~ORDER my new album!! My NEW GOAL is to get at least 50 more backers at the $25 level so I can wind up sending out between 100 to 150 SIGNED hard copy new icy blue heart albums, and right now, PRE~ORDERING the record here on my kickstarter project page is the ONLY way to get it, are you with me?=)
THANKS SO MUCH for all the support! we're working really hard on the project & can't wait to get it in your hands=)
about the album:
As a singer/songwriter, I’ve been inspired by artists like Bonnie Raitt, Linda Rondstadt, Emmylou Harris, John Hiatt, the Eagles, Dan Fogelberg & more. This "icy blue heart" project is a chance for me to record songs that I love and grew up on and I guess in some ways it’s a chance for me to say thanks to the folks who’ve inspired and continue to inspire me as an artist. And not only that, it’s a chance for me to include everyone out there who has supported my music in the past & folks I don’t even know yet, in the process of making this new album…I say this all of the time but I say it because it’s true, I wouldn’t be able to do what I absolutely LOVE doin’ without the people who buy our music, book us to play shows & who sometimes let us crash on their futons or in their tee pees, SERIOUSLY;)!! So, thanks so much in advance for EVERYTHING!!!=)
It was the icy blue heart show we did earlier this summer with some INCREDIBLY talented players, singers & performers that inspired this new project…instead of performing my original material that night, I sang songs by many of my musical heroes…I had so much fun & it got me thinking that we should take some of those performances, record a few more songs in that vein & release it all as an album…and that’s exactly what we’re doing & I’m hoping that y’all will help play a role in making it all come together…we’re working away on the album & your support, no matter your level of involvement, will allow us to finish it out the way we’d like to…with your help, we’ll be able to finish recording & mixing the album, to license the songs & pay royalties to the writers of the songs we're recording & releasing, to manufacture the new cd & to reward y’all with opportunities we wouldn’t normally be able to provide=)
if we go over our goal ~(& I guess you never know & well, I’m dreamin’ BIG & that’s what I do, along with a lot of workin' hard & havin' a lot of faith!!;)~ we’ll be able to really promote the new album, promote me as an artist & the icy blue heart show which would help us get out there & perform for more folks which in turn allows us to keep doin' what we love & to be able to give back in ways i've always dreamed of, see, there I go again, dreamin' BIG!!=) And I’d LOVE to get back to Japan, to Europe & to Hawaii;) to perform & to wherever else this AWESOME road leads!
Thanks oodles for stoppin’ by my kickstarter project page & thanks SO MUCH for your support, it means the world to me, to my man sam & to our whole herd=) I'll be checkin' in often as this cool, "icy blue" journey rolls along=) I'm really hopin' y'all dig my choice of tunes for this new album & for my horse lovin' friends, well, bein' the horse crazy cowgirl that I am, there's bound to be at least one horse song in the mix;)
MANY, MANY THANKS!!
peace, love & rock~n~roll y’all,
