"I think I can honestly say that I have never felt such a strong connection and calling with anything else the way I have with making music. That does not mean that I'm not strongly grounded with the important things in life (love, life, family, loyalty, God, etc.), It's just that my connection to making and preforming music is different. The role of an artist is complicated. You are telling your audience "here is a part of me. Here is an extension of who I am" and then you ask "do you like it?" It's a condemning question really"
Jared Axen -singing/songwriter

   My name is Jared Axen and I am “Your Singing Nurse”. This is something I tell my patients every morning when I start my daily rounds. As a registered nurse, I have the opportunity to serve so many people from the extremely diverse population that makes up Los Angeles and LA County. I have come to recognize that music bridges our differences with a common bond. Music is the common language, spanding cultures, history, and time itself. Music has proved to be a useful tool, enabling me to reach out to my patients and provide therapy and comfort in ways that nursing by itself was limited. Even with my older population, I have been able to reach out and provide comfort with older songs from their times. Happiness is in the single moments. I try to help them find and remember those moments. Nursing is about connecting with people, and so is music.

   While I cannot show much of how I use music in the hospital setting due to protected information, I can share my music and art with you, my Patreon subscribers. Patreon has provided the unique opportunity for you and I to work together in the creation of music and art. As my Patreon subscriber, I will be able to keep you involved through live chat feeds, video updates, live lyric and music writing sessions, and an overall look behind the scenes as new music and art is created. You will be involved on the ground floor and would have a direct and intimate impact on the direction of my music and really the direction of me as an artist. Of course you can be one of the many gracious followers on social media who support and share my music, but wouldn’t it be neat to be a part of how it all starts? I would love it if you would join me on this journey.

Goals
25% complete
My goal is to produce 4-5 songs a year out of the ones that I share with you. It costs about $500 a song plus a little extra, but I think that with a little bartering, I can make 3K go a long way : )
