The words “thank you” never seem adequate, but it’s what I’ve got. So, thank you to all who have contributed to this project. We are 82% funded! Together we have raised $8,181. Wow!! That leaves $1,818 to go. I know we will get there.
Fundraising pushes me way way out of my introvert comfort zone. So I thank you all for responding & being part of this project. Once we are a little further along, I'll post parts of rough mixes so you can hear the record you're helping us make.
Because of you, Ryan David Green and I were able to go into the studio last week and get vocals, basic guitars, and a drum track done for five songs. That is amazing!
It is such a pleasure working with Ryan. He brings sensitive, honest, and smart musicianship to this project, as well as recording and computer skills that I’m glad I don’t have to even try to develop. :-) plus he laughs at my dumb jokes, which is of course the most important quality a producer needs to have.
Because of you, we'll also be able to have Michael Gilbert Ronstadt play cello and Jim Lipson play percussion on this record. Things are cooking, people! So thank you.
I'm taking some time off from shows this summer to focus on the CD. And because it's too hot to leave the house LOL. But don't worry, I'm still here :)
I will of course keep you updated, and always feel free to send me questions. Or cookies. Or dumb jokes-- because I will laugh at them. xoxo Joyce
