DIY Crowdfunding Begins!
March 1, 2017

Supporters have one more chance to be listed in the Thank You credits of the debut album, “Desdemona Resurrect”! For any amount donated, you and/or your company will be listed, and $10+plus donations will also receive a download of the album upon release and a Surely Lorraine t-shirt (size based on availability, so the sooner the better)! The fundraising goal is $6,000 and the tally will be updated at SurelyLorraine.com!  These funds are going towards covers & sample licensing and manufacturing costs.

December 6, 2016

Friends and Supporters!
Endless Thanks to all who pledged on the Kickstarter campaign! Your generosity and encouragement mean so much. As we did not meet the goal needed on the all-or-nothing platform, an IndieGogo (new and improved!) campaign has been launched through December 14th for supporters to re-pledge their support and this time have it stick. The website for the new fundraising campaign is: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/completion-funds-for-surely-lorraine-s-debut-album#/

Thank you again for believing in the music!
