Hello everyone and Happy New Year and New Decade… and Happy Valentine’s Day!
Looking for the perfect $99 gift for that special someone for Valentine’s Day? How about me? I’ll be offering exclusive one-minute (give or take a few seconds) video greetings personalized to your valentine with a brief message from you to them by me — and I’ll even sing a bit of my song “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” for them as well! Order by 11:59pm PST on February 11, and we’ll send you a downloadable video link in time for Valentine’s Day – and we may even share your video on my Facebook and Twitter pages on the 14th!
I wanted to make this package extra special – so with your order of this Valentine’s video, I’ll include an MP3 download of a never-before-heard version of “Damn, I Wish I was Your Lover.” We’re not posting this version to any online streaming services or offering it for sale any other way – ordering the Valentine’s Day video greeting is currently the only way to hear this rendition. I do ask that you keep it for your personal enjoyment and not post it anywhere on the internet – I may include this version as a bonus track on my upcoming album! Order here: https://sophiebhawkins.com/shop.
I have some fun projects coming up in 2020. We’re booking concert dates across the United States now (I hear you international folks – we’re working hard to get to you, too!). We’ll post ticket links on my tour page as soon as the venues are secured and they open their ticket ‘window’. My 2019 concerts sold out, so you’ll want to grab tickets as soon as they’re announced (don’t worry, we’ll send you an email reminder and post reminders on my social pages!).
And, we’ll be announcing the beginnings of a crowdfunding campaign later this year to support the release of my new album, “The Woman With the Sea Dog.” I can’t wait for you to hear it – but we need to get it funded so I can book the recording studio space and pay my super talented musicians and engineers. More to come on this soon! In the meantime, while I’m scouring my archive for some limited edition package offerings – if you have an idea about a crowdfunding package you’d like to see me offer, please enter your idea here.
I also wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of the amazingly positive feedback about my latest release, “As I Lay Me Down Deux” – you loved the original and you love this version, too! Thank you!
If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, read my musing about this song and watch the official music video here: https://sophiebhawkins.com/ailmd-musings/. We also released my first official lyric video ever for this song – and it answers the oft-asked question about that mystery lyric. While I do love tacos, that isn’t what I’m singing! Watch it (or read it) here on my YouTube channel for the answer.
So much time, energy, effort, and yes, money, goes into the production of new music from independent artists like me – if you enjoy this new song and want to support my creation and release of even more music, please purchase one of the As I Lay Me Down Deux download packages available on my website . And don’t forget to check out the rest of my shop offerings while you’re there! Including a BRAND NEW “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” photo/lyric t-shirt!
Your faithful songwriter… Sophie
