Hello all you lovely beings. Thank you for visiting my page, and thank you again for sponsoring me, my artform, and allowing me to share my insights, expression, passion and activism.

I'm Macaila Eve, Pixie from (ex-band) The Goth and the Pixie. To me, music is all about connection and creating a community. I write for processing and expression, I write to release, I write for the joy of it and, sometimes, I write to educate. My inspiration ranges from love, heartbreak, connection, sexual assault, racism, minority oppression, statements on our current culture, coping mechanisms, and also some more happy simple stuff too! Gotta have some happy songs in the world too. Often they begin life as poetry and become restructured into songs. More recently I have gotten more interested in combining spoken word with my music.

About Patreon; It's kind of like a crowdfunding website but with ongoing donations; sponsor an artist. Become a patron of the arts. These donations may be monthly or per project completed, it depends what the artist has chosen. I've chosen monthly donations because it provides me with more stability and allows me to budget for the projects I am currently invested in. This donation will go out on the first of the month. For your contribution you will receive a reward. The rewards are detailed ---> to the right, if you have any cool ideas for rewards please send them my way, whether or not you sponsor me. I have decided to follow the model which 'Living Big in a Tiny House' follows: which is, to give the same reward no matter which contribution is given. This is because I believe that people will support with what they are able to and I want to give back for the support they are able to give - without discriminating based on what someone is able to give. I am very open to letting this community decide what works best for it- so let me know your thoughts and ideas - and I'd love to be giving back to you all something fulfilling. You may stop your donation at any time. 

The contributions I receive will go towards enabling me to invest in writing, promotion, recording, making videos, and putting on awesome shows. Musician income is by nature unstable- and we all need a little stability. Surviving on piece meal work can be very stressful; as a patron, a sponsor, you are able to give me some peace of mind. A little less to worry about so I can focus on making music and poetry and continue making a fuss about the issues that are important to me- and more opportunity for me to share with you the behind-the-scenes, the just written songs, the drafts and hilarious stories and heartwarming moments. I'm very grateful for platforms such as this one allowing us to connect more closely with our fans and supporters; a platform for me to share early and exclusive content, silly doodles and heart to hearts, for supporters to be involved in, to connect with me and each other, and to enjoy rewards too!

It is a blessing to have people who believe in me and I am incredibly grateful for the gifts my friends, and this community, give me. It makes it so much easier to believe in myself and to continue to follow this journey.

A bit about me:

I'm originally from Hamilton, New Zealand, where I have been lucky to be surrounded by beautiful and talented musicians. Here I was on the committee of 'the Volume Collective', a group promoting local music by providing practice spaces, free recordings/videos and hosting shows- check them out on Patreon :)

My New Zealand band 'the Goth and the Pixie' released an album and completed a mini tour around the NZ North Island in late 2017. Our sound together has been described as 'casting a spell to another reality' or Dark Circus. We draw on a wide range of influences like Queens of the Stone Age, Cranberries, David Bowie, Mr Bungle and enjoy the theatrical and chaotic as well as beautiful and melodic. Check out it out on Spotify, Bandcamp, Itunes, my website, probably some others (thanks Distrokid). Also, this band has just ceased to be. It is an ex-band. 

Over 2017 I traveled around Australia a lot (mostly Melbourne but also Adelaide, Brisbane, Blue Mountains, Byron Bay, Sydney and Tasmania) writing and performing solo or jamming with other artists/bands with my violin and harmonies. This has been great for growing my skills and slowly developing a network of musicians to collaborate with but it's been incredibly financially precarious! I joined Melbourne punk-folk Whisky Dram for (2017) Hobofopo in Tasmania and (2018) Benalla Wall to Wall festival and also have accompanied Pepper Jane and James Hickey on various stops of their tours.

Through many stressful events in my life, music and writing have been my salvation. Supportive friends and expression are my lifeline. Life can hit hard, often unexpectedly, and I realised that during these times I need to be able to have writing and music (and plants and gardening) in my life.

Last year I became the director of the Hamilton Fringe Festival. My goals for this year are to record an EP, publish a children's story, and have an epic 2019 Fringe Festival :)

You can also 'follow' on Patreon without having to donate- it's on the left hand side <--- under the part that says how much I am donated per month - and you'll see what I post publicly. Alternatively, you can donate a $1 a month and see EVERYTHING I post :) Your call. Thanks for having read to here! (or skipped it and scrolled down, that's always a good tactic), catchya !
