Summer is almost over and I’m delighted to sending out this message of gratitude to thank the many people who sowed the seeds in Spring in order to help tranifest my new record Silver Wells so quickly and with such joy. As a self-releasing (that sounds weird) independant artist it is so important to know I am not just singing into the void and that, despite-or maybe because- of the fact that my work is not affiliated with any corporate entities there is a community of people who are interested enough in what I’m doing and in what I have to say that you are willing to pitch in and help when I need it. It’s been so empowering and touching for me to feel the outpouring of support for this very personal creative project. Since the CD was released I’ve received so many wonderful comments from people about how much they’ve enjoyed it and the record was even listed by Ann Powers of NPR as one of the TOP 5 Cover Records of Summer 2012. I know all of you who contributed and supported now have CDs so I hope you’re enjoying them!
Honestly there are no words to fully express how blessed you have all made me feel.
But here you go!
