We’re so excited to bring you news about this! Briana Buckmaster (you may know her as Sheriff Donna in Supernatural) has just launched a Kickstarter for her debut album!
The album will be produced by Jason Manns, who recently also produced Gil McKinney’s debut EP, which reached #1 on the ITunes Jazz Album charts! Jason has also released solo albums, as well as being a part of The Station Breaks.

Briana has sung at the Supernatural conventions, and will appear on Louden Swain’s upcoming live album Saturday Night Special, singing a cover of “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” by Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks.
Here’s more about the album in Briana’s words from the Kickstarter:
With this project I’m hoping to record a mix of covers and originals influenced by some of my favourite rock and blues singers (maybe some musical theatre for fun…?) This is a journey so the end result is a glorious mystery. But probably not gonna try to cut a punk or polka album any time soon. i’ll leave that to the professionals.
Meeting Jason Manns was the best accident that ever happened to me. Not just because he’s become one of my favourite people in the world but also because he has encouraged me to embrace my voice, my sound, and my dreams by doing this album. Our plan is to record in Vancouver and LA, and over the coming months we’ll have something for you to rock out to in the car, sing along to in the shower, and cry to when you’re feeling righteously peeved.
The goal was set to $20,000, and only after a few hours it’s already past the halfway point. The Kickstarter has currently raised over $12,000.
Some of the things you can get for donating towards the Kickstarter include a digital download of the album once it’s released, a signed album, a t-shirt package, signed lyrics, a Skype session with Briana, executive producer, studio visit and more.
