Ontario singer/songwriter Karyn Ellis has yet to choose a title for her latest studio album, but that won't stop her from selling it. Fans will be able to pre-order the disc at an upcoming Toronto performance, which is doubling as a "Pre-CD Release Fundraising Party".
Perhaps the very first of its kind, Ellis' "Fundraising Party" will actually help the songstress pay for a pressing of the disc, which she will then distribute to all those pre-orderers out there. Get in on the DIY action at the Freetimes Caf» on August 12th, where $20 will get you into the show and a copy of the album in question.
At the singer's website (www.karynellis.com), it's possible for all those outside of Toronto to order up a copy of the currently-untitled disc. There are also three sample tracks ("Movie", "Four AM Love Song Ode To The Floor", "Skipping Stones") posted for everyone's listening pleasure.
