A newly formed independent trio shoots up to the #2 position on Billboard...
Less than a year after forming the group "Tre Principesse", 15 year old Agne G., 18 year old Tatiana Marie, and 20 year old Anastasia Lee became Billboard charting artists this past week.
"It was definitely a surprise," says Anastasia Lee, "We just formed the group in the spring of 2016 and we have had minimal rehearsal time until May and June of this year . Most of the vocals and some of the instrumentals were recorded in Appleton, Wisconsin at Rock Garden Studio. All of the vocals were completed by the end of June and everything was sent to Nashville to be mixed and mastered by the first week of July. After the mixing and mastering process, the finished files were sent to LA and voila... our album was finished less than three days before our debut performance at Festa Italiana Milwaukee 2017 (July 21, 22, & 23). I've been working on this album and the logistics behind it every night until 1AM or 2AM at least, for the past 6 to 7 months so to see this happen is pretty neat."
"We were really surprised and we're glad our hard work paid off. None of this would have been possible without our fan's support as this album was crowd-funded," says Tatiana Marie. "Last June my sister Anastasia and I graduated from Ashwaubenon High School, we're about to start our 2nd year of college at St. Norbert, and now we are Billboard charting artists. It's pretty cool."
Agne G. said she was, "Shocked, absolutely shocked. Out of the three of us I'm not sure who was more surprised, but it's great news."
On July 14, 2017, Tre Principesse met and surpassed their goal of $30,000 for the creation of their debut album!
Agne G., Tatiana Marie, and I are thrilled to announce our first 'Getting to Know You' Concerts as the trio, "Tre Principesse". We will be a headline act at Milwaukee, Wisconsin's "Festa Italiana" (July 21 - 23, 2017), which is held at the famous Milwaukee Summerfest grounds. This is a beautiful open-air festival with many attractions, plenty of stages, lots of amazing food, nightly fireworks, and excellent music. This is the Largest Italian Festival in the United States !
Our performance dates are:
All three of us are honored to be performing at Festa Italiana as a trio. We have all performed at the Festa in the past. In 2012 I performed at and Won their Italian Idol, in 2013 I performed at Festa with Micheal Castaldo, in 2013 Tatiana Marie was a finalist in Italian Idol, and in 2016 Agne and I both performed with Micheal Castaldo. In 2016, I also ran a 5K in a 'Red Ballgown' prior to performing with Micheal Castaldo, but that's a story for another day. :)
We are thrilled to now be performing at the Festa together and we will be Honored if you can join us ! Oh yes, We will have Our New 'Getting To Know You' Album available for the first time at Festa :)
Of course, We'll be hanging around after the both Concerts, Saturday and Sunday, for a Meet & Greet as long as you'd like, to Talk, Sign autographs, Take Pictures, Eat. and Yes we'll have a Merchandise table set up. We will also be accompanied by live musicians during both Concerts !
We hope you'll be able to Join us for what will be our DEBUT 'Getting to Know You' performance !
Thank you & Grazie !

Hello Everyone !
Anastasia Lee from Tre Principesse here to update you all on where we're at. First off, I want to thank all of you ! With your help we have raised $26,000 !
I have to say we're all feeling very blessed to have received so much support from you. :) Thank you.
Second, we've begun to receive our first orchestral backing tracks and the finals songs were selected and are being produced as we speak !
We're all in rehearsal and all of the songs are to be recorded by the end of May/first week of June. :) So you'll be hearing a lot more from us very shortly.
At the request of our fans, in order to continue receiving pre-orders and to fund more albums in the manufacturing stage of this project, the GoFundMe has been reopened. Thank you all for your continued support !
Tre Principesse's first YouTube release is now going viral!
We're nearing the 90% mark! This CD is going to be a reality... :) xx
Thank you all so much for your support!
We're have now raised over $17,000! For an idea of what that means for the CD, as you know the first $6,000 went towards Part 1 of the campaign - the joint trip to perform in Romania, footage of which you can see below. Footage of Tatiana to follow soon!
Thanks to the generous support of our supporting sponsors, it looks like this CD will soon become a reality.
You're all amazing. :) Grazie mille.
