Some Archive Performance Photos

 

Today, I thought I would share a few photos with you from the archives. Just a few though!

The last week or so I’ve practiced more hours than I usually would in an entire month. At several hours per day, I feel like I’m accomplishing something and it makes me wish I could spend hours everyday doing nothing but playing and practicing.

I’m getting ready to do another big update tomorrow on Kickstarter where I’ll share a preview of the album art, an acoustic video of one of the songs and a few other things and I’m really excited about it. In fact, I’m just really excited about this project, how it sounds and the fact that it is so close to being finished. I’m also excited about the project that is going to follow it.

Less than 50 Days to Pre-Order My New Album

 

There are less than 50 days left to pre-order my new album, Behind Your Eyes, and take advantage of the Kickstarter-only offers available as part of the pre-release.

First and foremost I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to pledge to my Kickstarter campaign to help me finish my latest record. I appreciate your support so very, very much!

If you haven’t already pledged, you’re missing out on a ton of exclusive updates like photos from in the studio, videos, the opportunity to hear sound clips of the new songs before they are officially released, the artwork as it is created by a really talented artist (Gini Bailey), and a lot of other fun stuff. It’s only $1 to get access to all of the album updates (plus you get a free mp3 from the album).

There are quite a few offers available as part of the Kickstarter campaign that won’t be available after Nov 9th, so if you want to take advantage of this limited offer, be sure to check out the project.

Here’s a few things that won’t be available after the campaign ends:

  • My entire music catalog for only $45 (that’s at least 75 songs)
  • Handwritten lyrics and lyric books as part of a numbered and limited series
  • The opportunity to have any song recorded by me on any instrument I play
  • And, of course, you get the album before any one else

CLICK HERE to become a backer and to be a part of my new album.

The album’s expected release date in November/December 2012. And so far, 5 of the 11 songs have already been announced!

If I don’t reach the goal, all of the money is returned to the backers, so the all the awesome rewards listed to the right won’t be available. Help me reach the goal so that you can take advantage of these one-time only offers!

I greatly appreciate your support!

Photos from a Recent Performance

Here are some fantastic photos by Mikey Cohen from Smooth Jazz Live from one of my husband’s recent performances. I had the opportunity to sit in with the band on two songs.

And if you haven’t already, please check out my Kickstarter page for my upcoming album Behind Your Eyes.

Be a Part of My Next Album

Today my new album, Behind Your Eyes, went live on KickStarter. For just $1 you can get access to exclusive album updates, a free mp3 and KickStarter only videos that will be posted until the release of the album. For $10 you can pre-order the album itself. Not to mention the fact that there are a ton of additional offers that are only available as part of the KickStarter campaign.

CLICK HERE to become a backer and to be a part of my new album.

As you know, I’ve been working on Behind Your Eyes for quite some time and it features several talented musicians, a collection of original music, and it is the first time that my album’s focus will be on singing.  This album is really different from anything I’ve done before, and it has been so much fun to work on. More specific information will be posted later on for backers.

Behind Your Eyes is in the final recording stages and I’m really excited to share it with you. If you are interested in becoming a part of “the making” of my new album, here’s where your contributions will go:

  • Recording costs
  • The cost of manufacturing CDs.
  • Cool promotional materials (that you’ll have access to first)

I’ll be updating my progress on Kickstarter every week so you can stay in the loop on how the project is going. For as little as $1 you can get access to these exclusive updates and be involved in the production of my new album! I’ll post Kickstarter-only videos and pictures so you know where your contributions are going and where I’m at with the project!

The album’s expected release date in November/December 2012. There will be 11 songs on the album which I will announce one at a time to contributors along with acoustic video versions of the songs.

If I don’t reach the goal, all of the money is returned to the backers, so the all the awesome rewards listed to the right won’t be available. Help me reach the goal so that you can take advantage of these one-time only offers!

I greatly appreciate your support!

Official Album Announcement

I would like to officially announce that my new album, Behind Your Eyes, will be available at the end of the year! I am so excited to finally finish this project and share the music that I’ve been working on. In order to keep on track, I will be posting status updates on the project so you know where it’s at!

Here is the Album Planner with what has been completed on the album and what is left to do. I know it’s not the prettiest design, but I’ll work on it! The colored boxes are things left to do and the X’s are things that have been completed. As you can see, it’s pretty close!

The reason the titles have been blurred out is because I have not officially announced the track listing and I’d like to keep that a surprise for a little while longer. I’ll be announcing each song one by one until the release of the album.

If you are looking for ways to keep track of the project, I will be starting a KickStarter account to help cover the cost of getting the albums printed. For as little as $1, you will get exclusive album updates that aren’t available anywhere else (as well as a copy of one of the singles from the album before release). You can even pre-order the digital version/physical version of the album! This is the last full update I’ll publish publicly. I’ll post the KickStarter link when it’s available and I hope you’ll stop by and pre-order the album!

*** UPDATE: here is the link to my Kickstarter page where you’ll have access to exclusive album updates for just $1 ***
