How do you know when a recording project is finished?
When you listen to the final mix and a perma-smile creeps over your face from the feeling of "nailed-it."
It took one whole year from conception, to editing, to recording, to mixing and now mastering the 4 songs that have been like companions to me. I am so excited to say that what I am hearing in the final mixes is like a 3-D version of what ran through my mind when I heard them running through my head early in December of 2016.
Recently Little Kids Rock received a donation in honour of all of the Indiegogo Contributors that helped us reach our $8000 goal!
They responded with the loveliest note of thanks:
Thank you so much for your generous $378.45 donation to Little Kids Rock on 10/10/2017 in honor of Indiegogo Campaign Supporters of Sharon Paquette 4-Song EP. Your donation will help us enrich the lives of disadvantaged children across the nation by bringing free instruments and music education into their schools! Every time our students pick up these instruments to play, Indiegogo Campaign Supporters of Sharon will be honored.
Little Kids Rock has given the gift of music to more than 650,000 children and is currently serving more than 320,000 students in some of the most under-served public school districts in the U.S. With this gift, some more kids will get their chance to rock out!
You are helping transform the lives of low-income children by restoring and revitalizing music education in their public schools!
We are very grateful to count you as a big friend to our little rock stars! We hope you enjoy this video that shows what you are helping us make possible (click on the image or link below to view the video on YouTube).
Thank you for helping us put music back where it belongs…in our schools!

Little Kids Rock is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Tax ID #94-3396568). Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
The new EP, now being called "No Rules" in honour of Stevie Nicks and the inspiration she spurred me on with (read that story in a previous blog post) are in the hands of the mastering engineer and will be ready to be printed on to CD as of December 11th!
Thank you again for joining me on this journey of creating new music. I would not be so close to seeing this vision come to life without all of your support through donations, pre-orders and in spirit!
I am so proud of what we created and I could not have done it without the support of my campaign backers and the hard working dedication of the team of instrumentalists and engineers that worked long hard hours to meticulously cover every detail in each song.
Pre-Order the EP here if you haven't had a chance to and receive my gratefulness for your generous support of a DIY musician.
