Ally McBeal Singer Launches Kickstarter Campaign for New Album
"I decided to just dive in and try it, and so far it's going really well," Vonda Shepard tells PEOPLE
Remember that infectious Ally McBeal theme song?
It’s been more than 10 years since the cult ’90s hit ended its five-season run, and now the creative force behind the catchy opening tune “Searchin’ My Soul” – Vonda Shepard – is ready to get back in the spotlight.
Shepard – who also appeared as the bar singer in the series – has continued to produce music and recently turned to Kickstarter to help fund her latest work.
“After a long time of just hanging back, and still playing shows, and recording and writing, I decided to just dive in and try [Kickstarter],” Shepard tells PEOPLE. “So far, it’s going really well.”
Shepard says that one of the Ally McBeal stars has already contributed to her campaign – which runs until Jan. 15 and has a goal of $35,000 – although she won’t reveal which one.
“A couple of people have just been so, so supportive I’m still friendly with a few of the people in the cast,” she says.
As for life after the series, “I just kept making records, touring in Europe a lot and then I had a baby in 2006, so my life has been very, very much family-orientated. But I can’t really stop doing the music because it really feeds me,” Shepard says.
“The two together are a really great combo: the family life and then being able to go play some shows and write.”
