it's a wrap! thank u

of goal

This is the one spot to get involved with the release of my brand new album “When The Music’s Loud”!

I’ve been working on this record for the past 3 years and I’m happy to say that we’re close to releasing it. I’m putting this project out on my own so all of your support is greatly needed and very much appreciated.

Here’s how it works – you can pledge for any of the items listed on the right side of the screen. I put up some fun and unique things that I hope you’ll dig. Also, everyone who pledges will get a digital download of my new album once it’s ready.

The process is supa-dupa-easy-peesy:

1) Make a Pledge
(shipping + handling is included based on your location)

2) Watch the updates
(Once you pledge, you’ll get instant access to the ‘pledger-only’ part of the site. You’ll hear streams of the new songs, videos of me recording in the studio, interviews with the producers who worked on the album and much, much more. You’ll be fully immersed in this album as we gear up to release it.)

3) Spread the word!
You can also help by promoting this project on your social networks. Every little bit counts :)

4) Interact!
I’d love to hear from you, if you have any ideas for pledges please let me know. I can always add ’em on.

Best of all, a portion of the pledges will go to Girls Rock! Chicago, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering girls’ creative expression, positive self-esteem and community awareness through music. They’re a great group and we’d like to help them in any way that we can.

Thank you all so much for your support of this new album. I’m so proud of this record and I can’t wait for you to hear it!

much love,

5% post goal
5% of any money raised after the goal is reached will go to Girls Rock! Chicago.
