Thanks to each and every pledging friend on www.pledgemusic.com/projects/dilee her brand new EP is being released Sept 29th. All 3 songs were re-recorded, mixed, mastered and now being manufactured to send out to all buyers of the CD by next week. Her spoken word album was released just in time for Sept 11 and is entitled “Love For Peace.” DiLee was simply happy to submit both her EP and spoken word album to the Grammys for nomination consideration as a new member this year. Physical world-wide distribution for both CD’s are also under way.
Spoken Word Album “Love For Peace” is available on Amazon, Amazon UK, iTunes and more.
My immense appreciation to every pledging friend on our EP campaign! It was funded 111% in a record 5-1/2 week time frame!
It typically takes 60+ days to do a crowd funding project and because of all of my caring, supporting friends who are forever in my heart, the text info (writers, producers, lyrics, mixers) for the EP CD on the 3 songs have been submitted to the Grammys as a new member in time for their August deadline.
As my very first submission it’s simply a joy to be able to submit for nomination consideration! The songs are finally mixed for mastering Monday Sept 15th so CD manufacturers can print full jewel case CD’s for all who pre-ordered as well as hard copy submission follow up to the Grammys within their final deadline.
Thank you again everyone! So pleased to hear the feedback from each of you on the PledgeMusic site regarding the front cover, back cover, inside cover, behind CD, the CD itself and all the artwork! More soon stay tuned!
#BeyondHappy & willing to fail release of my EP due to misunderstandings (as I could not possibly be happier even to re-record, release EP & submit to Grammys via crowd funding www.pledgemusic.com/projects/dilee ). Pledge Music is NOT like others in that they do NOT charge any credit card til I reach 100% then they only release partial funds until all merchandise is shipped and received protecting the consumer.
Thought all crowd funding was this way but that is not the case. Kickstarter is only other crowd funding platform that I am aware of in addition to Pledge Music that protects the consumer.
So whether or not enough of my friends stand by me or not I will still slowly release music to help inspire and heal as well as support IRS verified charities such as www.CircleofHopeInc.org (concert Aug 16th & 10% over target goes to them with balance of overage for more songs or live concert in top grossing city) and continue supporting products like www.Rebbltonic.com (drink pictured here) proceeds go to help prevent human trafficking.
Thank you pledging friends in putting your credit card on hold to buy my EP! You are forever in my heart brothers & sisters regardless of whether we reach 100% funding …where if we fall short no money exchanged nor are products sold. If pledged with PayPal and goal is not reached, that is where refund occurs. I’ve got your back to whatever capacity I am able to now and in the future. If we don’t make our goal, EP will not released, no money would have been exchanged but all pledgers will still receive a copy of my spoken word album to be released Aug-Sept 2014 ♡ ♡ ♡
A total blast of fun! Thank you Lou for interviewing me and always paying it forward with your rockin radio show! http://www.ucwmagazine.com/dilee.html
DiLee is releasing her brand new EP CD on Sept 29th and submitting her EP and Spoken Word Album to the Grammys as a new member! She just launched her crowd funding campaign with fireworks on July 4th. Pledge to pre-order the EP (re-recorded songs from demo level to pro studio level) and get access to behind-the-scenes content & an opportunity to have your name on the liner notes of the EP to the Grammys.
In return for your pledge to pre-order her EP by the crowd funding deadline mid-August, the EP can be submitted to the Grammy’s by their deadline of August 27th and you will receive video updates on the campaign, audio updates as the songs are getting completed, exclusive studio photos, exclusive album artwork and photography, social media shout-outs and much more. You’ll also have the opportunity to buy products, merchandise or exclusive artist experiences that aren’t available anywhere else in the world.
Asked today how it feels in this earth suit (experiences). Cool question. I answered, “It feels lighter and happier identifying myself as my attention”…the essence of consciousness type thing or feeling which stems in my belief of #OneLove (One Creator) #OnePeople #OneEssence. It takes courage to maintain unity for we have to let go of our ego; Bringing down the walls and lifting our eye to see ourselves in each other, we feel we are One.
We are only competing with our self & judging-fear-arguing only limits our contentment ~ joy ~ abundance #embraceLOVE
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.”
One of my two mentors once said “Happiness is being able to laugh at ourselves”… Let’s forgive ourselves for our shortcomings & strive to overcome them
Whenever a rough patch comes, clouds cover the sun. When I feel I need to overcome negativity around me, peace is in stillness. Balance of reflection and engaging in a quite cheerful hobby or sometimes a loud past-time so stillness is possible later whether soaking in the negative ions in nature, meditating in solitude or yoga pose under the sun and trees.
On top of the HYBRID COMEDY tv show coming soon where DiLee is starring along side Lydia Cornell and Erin J. Morgart (partial cast photos below), DiLee has been cast in more than one film for 2014. Stay tuned for details.
Heavens! I love skydiving! It’s an experience of a lifetime and can’t be adequately described in words but my futile attempt at a description: “it is devouring fear feeling exhilaratingly spiritual.”

Sunday May 18 at 6pm in North Hollywood: The restaurant was full and it was a very fun event. Very few photos and video due to the camera being out of battery juice before the end of the live #music rehearsal show but it was blast and #RepublicofPie was filled with cool people!
