    Jillette Johnson, a 23-year-old New York City singer/songwriter, will release her Wind-up Records debut album, Water In a Whale on June 25.

    Her first single, the bravely vulnerable "Cameron," is the song which ultimately got her signed to Wind-up, as Johnson explores the struggle of being transgender. That's an issue a lot of people struggle with, so it's wonderful for them to have a song to look to and listen to where the writer "gets" what they are dealing with!

    Wind-up Records and Johnson have teamed up with PledgeMusic to offer a unique pre-order campaign. Visit www.pledgemusic.com to pledge. Fans can pledge for any of the exclusive items and experiences listed on Johnson's PledgeMusic page including a private house show, a day in the studio with Johnson and even a personal song written just for them along with much more. Those who do so will also hear streams of new songs, see videos and pictures of Johnson on tour, receive a digital download of the album and more.

    Those are some amazing prizes, so why not pledge? Do what you can, since it's for a good cause. Johnson will donate a portion of the pledged proceeds to Hey U.G.L.Y. - Unique Gifted Lovable You, a bullying prevention nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering youth to be their true selves and part of the solution to bullying. Utilizing peer-to-peer learning, world class speakers and the Choose To Change radio show, Hey U.G.L.Y. helps schools and youth-serving organizations co-create an environment of respect, acceptance and inclusion.
