Thank you so much to Augustana for having me as a guest on this very special tour. I am so grateful to Daniel, David, and all the wonderful friends and fans who came out to the shows. It was an honor playing for you guys and getting to meet so many kind and hospitable people on the road. After a month of solo driving across the country (and back!) I am catching up on some rest at home in Nashville as I finish up the final steps of making my new album, “Gold and Rust”. Stay tuned for details on that and much more exciting news to come in 2013!

All my Love,

LS

Hello!

I am writing you from the green room of the Paradise club in Boston on this very chilly evening. I wanted to say hello and share some pictures from my travels so far, as we are now about half way through this acoustic tour with Augustana. The shows have been so amazing and I’ve had the chance to meet a lot of new and wonderful people. In addition to the photo diary, I also wanted to let you know that in celebration of the New Year and of this awesome tour, I’m offering the gift of some brand new music! Right now you can go to NoiseTrade.com and download a sampler that includes 2 songs off of my forthcoming album, “Gold and Rust”. It also includes select tracks off of “Once I Was A Bird” and a previously unreleased live recording. Go give it a listen, and enjoy! And now here are some photos from the road…

Nashville friends! I hope you’ll join me and some very special local artists as we help the great Charlie Peacock celebrate the release of his new album! This will be my first official gig as a Nashvillian now that I’ve relocated to this wonderful city, so really there is quite a bit to celebrate! I’ll be playing 2 songs in the round with Andy Davis, Emily West, and a very special guest before Charlie hits the stage. Come on out and bring your friends!

After a month long Kickstarter campaign, I am happy to report that it was a big success! Over $12,000 was raised for my new album and I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for everyone who helped to make it happen! Thank you for supporting independent music, and for being a part of something so special to me. Keep your eye out for tour announcements and brand new music coming spring of 2012!

Xo,
Lauren

Wow! With 7 days left in this campaign we have raced past the minimum goal of $7500! I can’t even begin to thank all of you who have pledged your support and made it all happen under the deadline! If I could individually hug every one of you…I most definitely would.
Now that the minimum goal has been met with time to spare, our NEXT goal is to reach $10,000! You might think that $7500 is plenty of money to make a record, but it’s really just the beginning. So now I ask you to help me take this campaign as far as we possibly can before fundraising ends on August 9th. To help make that happen, I am offering a special download of my song “Blood Lust”, which was recorded live last fall and features the incomparable Jackie Greene. The song was released only on video, but to those who have pledged and are willing to INCREASE their pledge by any amount, I will personally email the track to you now.
If you haven’t pledged yet but have been thinking about doing so, I encourage you to visit my Kickstarter page and go to the “Updates” tab for an exclusive first listen of my new song “Coastlands”, which will be on the forthcoming album. I am happy to offer this insiders look at a very meaningful collection of songs, as a “Thank You” for the support of my pledgers who have so generously helped us get this far. I am especially proud of this particular tune, and I hope you like it as much as I do!
Keep the love a-coming and know that I am grateful beyond words!
Xo,
Lauren

To My Dear Friends,
As some of you may know from my recent updates, I have been hard at work on my third full-length album! Things have been progressing beautifully in the studio and I am so excited to share these new songs with all of you.
As an independent artist I’ve worked hard over the years to make a path for myself in music. I rely on my friends and fans for the support that they so graciously provide. At this time I humbly ask for your support again to help me finish my album, by Pledging to my Kickstarter campaign.
 If you don’t know about Kickstarter, it has become a trusted platform for independent artists to help fund their projects by offering up fantastic rewards to those who Pledge. Your donation is tax deductible and 100% secure. As someone who has donated to others’ campaigns in the past, I can personally say that it is a great and unique opportunity to be involved in something so special from the ground up. This cannot happen without your help, so you are literally making this album possible! And you get to reap some really fun benefits with the rewards packages I’ve put together for you. Please take a moment to watch my video, and remember that word of mouth is a major catalyst here. If you can promote and share it with your friends, my chances are greatly increased! Thank you so much for your help and support. I appreciate every bit of it!
With Gratitude,
Lauren Shera
