Dear Project 5 Team Membership Friends,
Thanks for your support and patience while I wrap up one of the biggest projects of my entire career. There's a multitude of reasons why I was unable to complete my "Project 5 Marathon" in 2016. I'm going to spare you the details, but let's just say my shoes are laced up and I'm in good shape to cross the finish line this year.
I released “Love You Strong Project 5.1 in February 2016." Just eight months later, in October 2016, I released the second album in my series, “The Slaughterhouse Sessions Project 5.2.”
The next three installments will include an EP of lyrically-driven electronica called “Who Is Ann Project 5.3,” and a songwriter set called “Talk to a Human Project 5.4.”
I'll wrap things up this year with "The Girl With the Exploding Brain Project 5.5." It's a full-length autobiography I've been working on since 2003. It chronicles my journey living with a seizure disorder while simultaneously crisscrossing the globe as a performing singer-songwriter. It’s a brutally honest book about the way I have dealt with the realities of being a performer with epilepsy. Part of the intention is to educate those who know nothing about the condition, but it’s also to let other people who have it themselves be able to read about my journey and perhaps avoid some of my own pitfalls — or to find positive affirmation about their own choices.
Project 5 Team Members received the first two installments in 2016. Your remaining installments ship this year. Here's a reminder that you've paid in full. We have created a new email list to keep Project 5 Team Members updated on our progress as we continue on our journey. We will be in touch.
In the end, Project 5 is a case study in perseverance and how it's buoyed by resilience, love, faith, loyalty, and the ability to communicate in a world taken over by social media and the digital age.
Thank you for your trust.
Thank you for believing in me.
And thank you for venturing on this life-changing journey with me.

An afternoon benefit show for a friend fighting her way through cancer @ Saxon Pub yielded nice video footage of "I Found the Lions" and "Ain't it a Shame." Thanks Dan Jason for the videos!
