Launching: The Ketola Project

So yeah, here we go.1-2-3. Ready, set, GO. I can't tell you how excited I am to be finally doing this. The Ketola Project officially launches today! Which means that I am that much closer to making the CD that I have been dreaming about for what seems a lifetime. After years and years of waiting for it to happen, and then more years of agonizing and wishing I could make it happen, I am finally taking huge steps in the right direction...and well, things are happening! And I know it's the right time. I am inspired, I am writing, I am creating, and I am enjoying the whole process. And what is more, I have felt such overwhelming support from my friends and fans that at my own times of doubt and "what-the-hell-am-I-doing moments" seem to buoy me up from drowning in the sea of cynicism and creative-killing reason. No, I am leaving that behind. It's time for this artist to make a bonifide album. And well, there will always be a hundred reasons why it doesn't make sense...the kids, the mortgage, the pounds I've yet to lose, the lessons I never took, the albums that I never made, the absolute ridiculousness of pursuing art...  But one thing I know for sure; it would be so much more ridiculous for me not to. At this point, there is no going back. I know too much now. About my heart and my dreams and the things I'm meant to do here on this earth. And so begins the journey. I hope you come along!

    We are so excited for you Jess! And, just to warn you... when you've hit the big time and you're on tour with Sting or U2 or Fergie or WHOMEVER, I'm totally going to name-drop. "Yeah, Jess and I go waaay back. She sang at my wedding you know." AND I'm going to cash in by selling my wedding video of you and Jo singing to TMZ. ;) Just so you know. We couldn't be prouder of you, and can't wait to see where God plans to take you through all of this. WE LOVE YOU TONS!

    Hey Jess, Love your site! I'm proud of you. I've heard of Bandzoogle and have been thinking of doing something similar for my next instrumental project. I wish you all the best. You go, girl!

    As far as I'm concerned... this IS the 'big time'... Making the decision to step out IS the big time! So, this Friday I'm buying the drinks! Yahoo! See you then!
