When I was a youth, I worked many mc-jobs and at one of these my colleague was a younger girl, Chantal Thompson, who could sing like a bird. We lost track of one another some number of years ago. Both of us married and moved away from the Kingston area, but with Facebook the world gets smaller, so again we have had the opportunity to get to know one another a little again.
I share this with you because I recently got the news that Chantal is FINALLY getting an album together. Jazz. I invite you to listen to her here.
I had thought about sharing that Chantal and her husband are keenly interested in the environment, about their small cozy home, about the interesting ecological project that her husband is working on. I even considered sharing information about her addiction to recycling and repurposing… but I know you would see through me. The fact is that I really want to be able to put her voice on my MP3 and listen to her buttery silky voice any time I want, so I am asking for your support.
If you liked her voice, and I know you did, Kickstarter is a new way to finance the recording, so please her throw in a few bucks, like I did. The cool thing is that with the Kickstarter it is like buying a package in advance and if she does not get enough financial support (I really hope she will!) your credit card will not be charged.
To learn more about Chantal and the other musicians in her group, here is another article.
UPDATE: Chantal’s project was funded! I am aware that at least four of you helped out and that about 50 checked out her link, so a big thank you to all of my readers who were able to support her!
