Annette Wasilik

 

 Hello dear friends and fans!

Thanks to all of you who came to "Help Annette Make a Record; Love & Fire" fundraising concert and all who couldn't come but still chose to donate!

I am so very grateful to you all. It was a sold out house and a magical night with John Previti on bass, Steve Bloom on percussion, Brian Evans on guitar, harmonica and vocals and Lynn Hollyfield and Nicole Belanus joined in with gorgeous harmonies as well. Charlie Pilzer of Tonal Park Recording Studio has created Allyworld, an amazing soundstage where no sound is lost. What a gift!

Because of you, we soared past my modest fundraising goal by another 50%; so again, thank you, thank you, thank you! 

I'm so excited about Love & Fire, and I'm hoping you can help make it happen. For the last two years, I've been writing - a lot! Originally, I was going to record just 4 or 5 songs but I keep writing new ones and I don't want to leave them behind. I'm hoping to raise enough money to make a full CD. Costs include studio time, mixing and mastering, musicians, duplication, artwork, promo and distribution. As an Indie DIY artist, I rely almost entirely on you, my friends, fans and patrons for support to continue to create my work. It is the new model and it turns out, because of your generosity, it can really work. So, THANK YOU!! 

I am still flying from my sold-out Love & Fire Concert and am overwhelmed by your support. We more than met my modest fundraising goal of $2000 but the entire project will cost considerably more. I am trying to come in under $8,000-$10,000.  That would cover most of the studio and production costs but probably not cover promo to radio which can cost between $3000- $4000! If you haven't donated yet but would like to support Love & Fire, you can hit the PayPal "Donate to Love & Fire" button to the right or send your donation old-school by check to:

 Love you and thanks for listening!
