Homegrown singer/songwriter Natalie York is thisclose to raising all the funds she needs for her CD "Promises," via KickStarter. She has three days left to raise the rest.

York, who now calls Brooklyn, N.Y. home, is a 2007 Madison High School grad. She also attended Oakton Elementary and Louise Archer.

So far, she has raised $13,250 from 209 backers. Her goal is $15,000 and she has until Sunday, at 11:59 p.m. to meet her goal. Pledges can be as small as $1.

Here's the latest on the funding campaign, from York:

"We're in the final days of the Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign to help release my new album, "PROMISES," and I need YOU to help get across the finish line. It's an ALL-or-NOTHING deal, so unless the goal is met, no credit cards will be charged and no rewards issued. 

The "PROMISES" album art features a painting by the legendary Tim Hildebrandt of "Star Wars" and "Lord of the Rings" fame. Among the rewards for those who contribute to the campaign, in addition to the digital album and physical copy of the album, are posters and postcards featuring the album artwork.

Additionally, a t-shirt is included for those who pledge at least $50. We're still deciding which color to offer it in. You can vote on which color -- red or blue -- on the Comments section on the kickstarter page at www.nypromises.com

Use the www.nypromises.com link to pre-order the album and so much more. Thank you SO MUCH for your support, and for SHARING this link with anyone you can think of :) If you haven't already done so, please connect with me on Facebook and Twitter


York's debut album, “Threads,” was named one of the best local releases of 2010 by The Washington Post, which highlights Natalie’s “soulful and warm vocals” and “sophisticated palette.”

Most recently she performed at Jammin' Java and will be back in town soon performing Friday, Dec 13 at The Hamilton in Washington, DC at 8:30 p.m. (with the 9 Songwriters Series) and Sunday, Dec 22 at Gypsy Sally's in Washington, DC at 7 p.m., when Phillip Noss will release a new CD and Jason Masi is also performing.
