Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project
'Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project' is completed and off to the manufacturers! I am so excited to have this album finished and I can't wait for everyone to hear it!! The digital release has actually gone out already and those of you who were a part of my PledgeMusic campaign will already have their copies.
I am so grateful to PledgeMusic and all of my pledgers! YOU made it happen and for that I THANK YOU!!!
And a special thank you goes out to my husband and co-producer, Paul Jefferson, for the countless hours of time spent in the studio doing his 'mad scientist' thing...incredible work!!
So now I'll be getting ready to take the show on the road! The tour dates are coming in now and it's going to be so amazing to share this with everybody. You can go to the 'shows' section of the website to find out if I'll be in your city!
See you out there!!
New Tour Dates!
Pledge Music Goal Reached!!
But I also want to let you know but just because we have reached the goal it doesn't stop there. There is still a chance to join in with the making of this record. And the good news is that a portion of all proceeds that come in from this point on will go to operationsong.org
Operationsong.org is an organization that empowers veterans and active-duty military to tell their stories through the process of songwriting in creative and therapeutic settings. I have had the chance to go through this process with a very courageous woman veteran named Nastatia Mason and it was a truly amazing afternoon and healing for all involved. Music and songwriting can be such a magical thing!
So let's keep rockin' along everybody! There will be more fun updates for all pledgers right up until the release date of my album on Aug. 1st. If you haven't had a chance to join in yet go to pledgemusic.com/lisabrokop to find out how to pre-order your copy of the album and have access to a bunch of other exclusive offers.
Tracking Day Is Complete!!
I want to thank everyone (my pledgers) for joining me on this journey so far on pledgemusic.com/lisabrokop . I so appreciate your support in making this record!
But there is still lots to do! We've got the foundation laid for the album so now we will add the lead vocals, bgs, extra instruments, etc...
For those of you who haven't had a chance to take a look you can go to pledgemusic.com/lisabrokop and find out how to join in. There will be a lot more fun updates and behind the scenes glimpses as I finish the album and of course there are plenty of exclusive items still available.
(May 22, 2015) - On Sunday, May 24th I'll be drawing a name from my pledgers...my amazing and wonderful pledgers...and that person will receive a gift from me. So that means that there is still time to join in friends! If you'd like to have a chance to be in the draw you can join my campaign at Pledge Music to get your name in the hat!
I'm in Surrey, BC this week with Ivy visiting family so I'll be doing the draw from here. This is gonna be fun! Thanks everybody!
And here's a hint...part of the gift will be 'vintage Lisa Brokop'...that's all I'm telling you....
(May 25, 2015) - I announced the winner of my Pledge Music gift give-away on Sunday and the winner was Gene Martin from Minneapolis, MN. Congratulations Gene!
Thank you so much to each and every one of you who has made a pledge so far...you are all appreciated. There is still tons of fun to come throughout the campaign so for those of you who would like to be a part of the process of making my new record you can go to Pledge Music and join in. I'm having a blast so far! Thanks!
(May 15, 2015) - Hello friends! My Pledge Music campaign is going great!! I am almost at 30% of my goal and I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you again to all who have made pledges for the project!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm so grateful for this support and I would like to do something special for all my Pledgers.
I am going to be putting all names of my list of pledgers into 'a hat' and on Sunday, May 24th I will draw one out and that person will receive a gift from me! So that means if you've already pledged...you are 'in the hat'. If you haven't yet you have until Sunday May 24th to be included. The cut off time will be 9:00am EST.
I'll be in my hometown on Sunday (Surrey, BC) so I'll be drawing the name from there. And I promise if my mom's name is picked then I'll get her a separate gift and pick another name! Ha!
This'll be fun everybody! Please visit Pledge Music to get your name in the hat!
(May 6, 2015) - I am thrilled to announce the launch of a new album campaign on Pledge Music! Whoohoo! I'm so so excited about this! There have already been several people (Pledgers) who have decided to get on board and join me in the making of my new record that will pay homage to Patsy Cline...I am so grateful!
Here is a video outlining the campaign to let you know a little more about how Pledge Music works and how you can get involved...
