What a journey! I'm finally able to announce the May 10th release date for ELVANELLE & THE ESCAPE ACT, which coincides with my birthday. I figured that any new creative project is a symbol of renewal and rebirth, and besides, May 10th just has a ring to it, ya know? The EP is now available for presale across the major platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and CD Baby. If you are a Spotify subscriber, like me, you'll be happy to know that the album with be available for Spotify streaming in the near future. But the BEST deal is right here on my website, where you can purchase the Physical Copy or Digital Copy directly through me for $11.11. Just click here: www.kimberlyhawkey.com/album/
