It is December in mere minutes. Can you believe it?
Earlier this week the physical copies of my new album My Heavens arrived on my doorstep. I am very excited!
"My Heavens" will be released to everyone who "pledges" through Pledge Music in three days. As we count down to the release I am posting a new song daily for people to stream.
When you pledge on anything from the $10 album to a $25 T-shirt, painting, lyric book or house concert you get access to a bunch of free downloads (including two free EP's) and some videos with live performances. Everyone who orders a physical CD also gets a copy of my Winter EP because it is that time of year. Five percent of everything that is pledged now goes to the ASPCA.
Two of the shirts that will only be available through the My Heavens Pledge Campaign are the Monsters shirt and The My Heavens shirt. I am posting a photo here of each. When you buy either one you get a copy of the album too since that is what this is all about. :)
I am so thankful to all of you for pledging and/or helping to spread the word. I keep my costs down as much as I can and I kept my goal low for my pledge campaign but I still really did not know if we would reach the goal. I recorded this album myself and will be putting it out on my own little label. I am my own manager, label. publisher, agent, etc. and I happily wear a lot of hats. Since I am totally indie and do not have any other person or company working on promoting my albums etc. every pre-order really helps me to keep my label going and helps to get my music out there.
The official release date will be in 2013 so if you would like to get My Heavens this year or get it for a friend Pledge Music is the way to go.
