Pre-Release MP3s Have Been Sent!
<p> This is so exciting! I just sent the pre-release mp3s to all my backers. Make sure to check your email! </p> <p> </p> <p> I would love to hear what you think of the music! I feel I must tell you it is VERY different from my previous albums; more lively, more electric and eclectic. Enjoy! The physical albums are delayed about a month due to some setbacks with the art. Right now it looks like I'll be mailing them out at the end of May instead of the end of April. Sit tight please! I'm doing it as quickly as I can while making sure it's my best effort. <br /> <br /> Thanks to you so much for making this happen. I can't do this without you!<br /> <br /> Love,<br /> <br /> Amy Obenski</p> <p> & The Carbone Band</p>

So be looking for an email from me with download information! </p> <p> </p> <p> The fundraiser has continued via PayPal. If you'd like to donate more or you have friends or family who might like to donate, please share this page with them: http://www.amyobenski.com/amy-obenski-the-carbone-band-fundraiser/</p> <p> </p> <p> We still need about $700 more to cover all the costs. </p> <p> </p> <p> Thank you so much for your continuous support! </p> <p> </p> <p> ~Amy</p>

Project Success! What's next...
<p> I'm happy to announce that Part One of our fundraiser has ended and we raised 114% of our goal! My next step is to decide how to continue to accept donations to meet Part Two goal of raising 1100 more Euros to produce the CDs. My current plan is to create a PayPal page where you can continue to donate as long as you wish. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for me.</p> <p> </p> <p> As far as sending you your rewards, I would like to wait until the album is finished so I can send you a whole package at once, rather than in two parts. What I will do is send you a personal note and a CD instead of the I.O.U. letter good for one CD. I think the CD will be in my hands by April, so you will receive your package soon after. Please let me know if this is a problem, and I will mail you your other items now instead. </p> <p> </p> <p> Thanks so much! And I'll keep you posted.</p> <p> </p> <p> Love,</p> <p> ~Amy</p>

70% funded! Thank you so much!
<p> Hi! I'm writing to say a big Thank You to all of your for help funding the next album! It's already 70% funded, and we still have 15 days left. It's great news! </p> <p> </p> <p> This weekend the Carbone Band invited the students from La Maison des Arts to record for the new album. All of this was done while I was in California. I wish I could have been there. It just amazes me that everyone is willing to do this for my music. It has taken on a life of it's own! Enclosed are some photos of the recording day. </p> <p> </p> <p> We also still need to find more backers for the fundraiser especially since we need to raise more than the goal to create the physical album. Please share this with your friends, family and colleagues that you think would love the music too. You can send them the English link: http://www.kisskissbankbank.com/amy-obenski-the-carbone-band-part-i</p> <p> </p> <p> or the French link: http://www.kisskissbankbank.com/fr/projects/amy-obenski-the-carbone-band-part-i<br /> <br /> Thank you all so much!<br /> <br /> Take Care,<br /> ~Amy</p> <p> <img alt="Img_2269" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51589/IMG_2269.JPG" /></p> <p> <img alt="P1140554" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51591/P1140554.JPG" /> <img alt="P1140668" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51592/P1140668.JPG" /> <img alt="P1140565" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51594/P1140565.JPG" /></p>
