Update on Crowdfunding - November 22, 2017

Update on my Crowdfunding project -

Hello my Dear Supporters,

Due to life and its obligations, I'm afraid, that I'm behind in launching my crowfunding project for my EP - "Songs In Transit". By the time I would have it ready, it would have fallen during the holidays, and I can't ask my backers to give, at such a hard time, for most folks. So...it looks like I'll be launching it after the first of the year. Meanwhile, that will give me more time to gather the best perks for my backers and to also keep preparing for the studio. I appreciate your patience, and as always, for your never ending support. Happy Holidays and may 2018', be a better year, for all of us. :) - Best, Gina
