“Thank you to The Arts Community and FeedTheArts.com for helping me take another step further in this crazy journey. I am so thrilled and humbled. Time Funding™ creates an unpredidented opportunity for Artists like myself.” said McLennan of the crowdfunding effort.
Head of Marketing- Music Outreach, Grammy Nominee and studio owner, Arty Skye,
“Sarah’s talent is outstanding and I am eager to work with her. Had it not been for the generosity of the FeedTheArts.com supporters, this music would not have a chance to be made. I look forward to sharing the final product with our community and everyone that helped make this happen. Truly amazing, this is the future of the entertainment industry.”
