Day 16-actually HOPE is coming!

Well. Um. I uh. The thing is. Um.

What an earth can I say? This is absolute crazy. Magic seems to happen over night on Sellaband. I went to bed last night about at 85% of target and by 11.30 ish my time this morning it was all over.

I was teaching at the time but guessed something was up when my right thigh started vibrating furiously(oh er) pleasant as this was, I soon realised that it was mobile phone, and later inspection about 1pm showed me that it was lots of messages streaming through of congratulations. I didn't need to see the page to know we had done it, I just couldn't believe that we had. Only 16 days later.

I remember the first time I came onto Sellaband and we had allowed ourselves about a year to raise the $50k needed. We raised it in 50 days. Again when I joined back up for my second project at €4000 I allowed myself an optomistic 6 months. And yet here we are you've done it again.

All of YOU are the dream makers. YOU are the people that make things like this happen. I have my music. I have my message, but I'm just little me. To be a success we all had to pull together and make it happen. Throughout my blogs I hope you notice that I always said 'we've raised the funds, because it was never just me in it-it was all of us.

I'm working really hard on making you the best album I can make. I have THE most wonderful musicians and team behind me. They have the same spirit and motivation as I do, and I wouldn't be doing any of this without their help either. 

But for now, thank you.Thank you for being on the road with me-I think we might have to sort out a european tour!

Ellie, from one Sellaband artist to another...congratulations!!

I loved your message. Exactly how it should be...with the "WE" did this message out to the fans. I am still working hard to hit my Sellaband target but I would have probably given up ages ago without the support of my wonderful fans who have kept me going.

It is tough but with the love and support of our fans, the road seems less steep and easier to travel.

Enjoy the journey and if you can, keep in touch!
