About VIAA

Hii <3
To be honest, when I created a Patreon in 2020 after the pandemic hit, I over promised what I could deliver. I was already over functioning at the time. I think my mindset on creating it was backwards - I thought, “ok, I have to do more than what I’m already doing to earn and deserve support, when the truth is, if anyone wants or has the means to support me, it has to be for what I’m already doing and giving.

Despite losing all my income in 2020 (primarily income from touring), I still spent any money I had left investing in myself to keep going: creating content, playing virtual live shows, buying production software and gear to set up my home studio and make music by myself for the first time. And in 2021, I continued to create almost every day in the shadows while abstaining from any sort of public life I lived pre-pandemic, all in order to heal from autistic burnout, an abusive relationship, and the loss of what I felt was my identity in my career. Since Jan 2021, I’ve taken production lessons, attended weekly therapy, was late diagnosed autistic, ADHD, cPTSD, and took a private writing course to help guide a personal narrative. If you’d like to read a more detailed unveiling of what my behind the scenes life has been like while trying to maintain a semblance of success and being “put together” for the internet, one way you can show your support is by supporting me here :)

Your support contributes to the sustainability of my artistry and ability to create, further investment in new music and production, and further healing in therapy. It takes a village to maintain anything you’ve seen or heard me do thus far in life, and under capitalism requires money. If all you want to do is pay once to read my personal narrative, that’s great - not only is releasing my writing on here catharsis for me, but it’s a way to spread awareness, relate to people, and protect others from going through the same thing. For anyone who wants to donate consistently, just think of it as throwing me a tip every month for the music and content I’ve made or am making. IG is in flux and becoming more of a shopping platform, so this is another platform I can utilize to reach you, answer questions or start a dialogue with you.

Again, I have to state my boundary, (since I’m not neurotypical, and we live in a neurotypical favored world), there are certain things that take me longer to process and execute (especially when doing them by myself), so I can’t promise consistent output here until my music’s ready. I prioritize rest, self-regulation and recovery, (I deserve it and so do you), but I’ll do my best and be here for you as much as I can! Thanks for understanding and if my boundary does not work for you, it’s all good! Endless appreciation and love for everyone who has stuck with me in any way: fans, friends or family, despite the erratic rollercoaster of life we’re all on !!!
