Shoshana Bean Launches PledgeMusic Campaign For Her New Album!
Broadway favorite Shoshana Bean has launched a PledgeMusic Campaign to raise money for the release of her fourth studio album, with 5% of the money raised going to Education Through Music Los Angeles.
Bean describes the album as "If Streisand, Sinatra and Aretha could have a baby. . .that would be the sound of this, my 4th studio album. I can guarantee it will be the biggest yet!"
"I'm drawing on ALL of my diverse stylistic influences and fusing them together to make a modern-day, soulful, rockin', fresh new take on a classic BIG BAND album!" she writes in the description for the campaign.
Fans can pre-order the album, and at different price-points, get exclusive behind the scenes access, merch, or in-person experiences with Shoshana Bean herself. A few of the in-person experiences include, making a YouTube video together, vocal coaching, dinner, and seeing a Broadway show. Other prizes include a personalized voicemail or a Skype call.
