It's a new song about our favorite spot in the World. The 1000 Islands.

It's written by a local performer called JPShaggy who often plays in
Alexandria Bay, NY. JP says, “I grew up in a small town in a small church
learning how to sing.” He goes on to say he attended four colleges, and
graduated from two, Jefferson and Oswego! He has been singing and performing in
the North Country ever since.

The song mentions all the places we care about: Singer Castle, Boldt Castle,
the Polar Bear Dip, the Rift, the Pom Peli Cliffs, the T.I. Bridge, Bootleggers,
Power Hour, Alexandria Bay, Clayton, Lake of the Isles, Pirates, Cannon Fire,
and a ton of river memories.

If all goes well it's going to be on JPShaggy's new album, but JP needs your
support to make the album. Studio Time is very expensive.

If you would like to help out JP has created a KICKSTARTER project to fund
his new album. You may have heard of Kickstarter, as much has been written about
it since its launch in 2009. Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative
projects. Thousands of projects – from films, games, music and art are being
funded in communities around the globe.

The way it works is as follows…if enough people pledge to donate and the goal
amount ($5,150) is reached the Album happens, if not no one pays anything.

Different pledge amounts get you all sorts of cool stuff… from signed albums
and t-shirts.. to a BBQ party with JP singing in your backyard.. how about a
signed Fender guitar or even going to go to the recording studio to sing backup
tracks? Really, you just need to go to his Kickstarter page.. watch the video…
and check out the pledge amounts and what they get you. BIG THANKS go out to
anyone that helps out.

BTW… we'll be making an awesome video to go along with the song this summer.
It's my vision that it becomes a song the entire 1000 Islands Region adopts.
We'll be shooting a lot of footage specifically for the video and we may need
help here and there from YOU GUYS when that happens.
