Update #4

'Amelie Belle & the Sleeping Well'

Comment

Again we just want to thank all of you for your donations and support. We have 12 days left to try and hit that secondary goal, so please spread the word if you are able.

On another note, we wanted to update you all on something else we’ve been working on. Colby, his wife Kimberly, and their four children are expecting another addition to their family next month, her name is Amelie Belle. To celebrate this occasion Colby has put together a compilation album telling the fictional story of ‘Amelie Belle & the Sleeping Well.’ Friends and family members were asked to write a song for Amelie or to record a cover song for her. These recordings were put together by Colby and woven into a magical tale, including narrations by Colby and his family. As an added bonus to all donators, we are going to provide a link so that you can all download and enjoy this recording. We will post an update as soon as that link is available.

Below is the tracklist and a short clip from one of the album's narrations.
