A new message from my mom:

I want to thank you all for your donations and helping my lovely daughter reach her goal. She finally sent me the CD (I do not know how to open up MP3s. I think it's great and possibly her best. What else am I going to say?

Thank you, mom. For those who are just visiting the site, here are the donation levels and prizes we came up with:

  • $10 - Unpolished Rock (but with potential) Level: A free digital download of the album, when it's released.
  • $25 - Polished Rock Level: An advance copy of the CD. Weeks before the masses.
  • $50 - Pewter Level: An advance copy and a "Thank You" on the CD.
  • $100 - Copper Level: All the above, plus a T-shirt saying you're a junior executive producer on the album.
  • $200 - Bronze Level: Free admission to my shows for 2008.
  • $250 - Silver Level: All the above, plus a membership to the "Secret Society Producer's Club," which means you'll get a secret password to a website where I'll post some rough tracks, or... something worthwhile.
  • $500 - Gold Level: This is where it gets good! At the end of my CD, I'll do a fun instrumental track using my MIDI keyboard for FL studio or my MIDI keyboard for Ableton Live (your choice!) where I'll mention your name and maybe rhyme with it. And if you don't want your name used, you can give me a loved one's instead. What a great gift!
  • $750 - Gold Doubloons Level: Exactly like the gold level, but you give me more money.
  • $1,000 - Platinum Level: How would you like to have a theme song written for you? I'll have a song you can put on your answering machine and show off. Again, this could be a gift.
  • $2,500 - Emerald Level: Mentioned as an executive producer of the album -- whoop-di-doo!
  • $5,000 — Diamond Level: I will come and do a house concert for you. Invite your friends, serve some drinks, bring me out and I sing. Actually, this level is a smart choice economically. I've played many house concerts where the host has charged his guests and made his money back. I'd go for this if I were you.
  • $10,000 - Weapons-Grade Plutonium Level: You get to come and sing on my CD, chance to get along with me in my recording studio. Don't worry if you can't sing - we can fix that on our end. Also, you can always play the cowbell.

Cheers, jill

For years I've been handing out business cards that say "Producer" on them. Of
course it was a bold-faced lie. Until now. I can't wait for the CD to come out.
And, I'm sure that next year I'll have a reason to watch the Grammy's.

You go girl!
