“Unforgettable That’s what you are….”
(texto em português abaixo!)
Indeed. Your dollar contribution is a precious gift. It tells me that what I do with my voice, in this world, has touched you in some way- big or small. So…that’s why darling, it’s incredible, that someone so unforgettable, thinks that I am unforgettable, too”

  • Patreon only posts where I’ll share stories and reflections of my journey on the road less traveled. I hope that what I share in these posts will inspire YOU to do something just a little bit scary, something just a little bit outside of the box that you’ve been hoping and dreaming of doing. I hope each post will encourage you to take a small step towards your dream, let your hair down just a bit and show that part of you that is oh soooo YOU, but you haven’t shared with the world yet.

  • You’ll also get early access to any new releases and shows online because I want you with me on my musical journey.

Sua contribuição é um presente precioso. Ele me diz que o que eu faço com minha voz, neste mundo, tocou você de alguma maneira - grande ou pequena. Então, como diz a canção, "por isso, querido, é inacreditável que alguém tão inesquecível, pense que eu sou inesquecível também."

  • Você terá acesso aos posts exclusivos no Patreon com histórias e reflexões sobre a minha jornada pela estrada menos percorrida. Eu espero que o que eu compartilho nesses posts inspire VOCÊ a fazer alguma coisa um pouco assustadora, um pouco fora da caixa do que você espera ou sonha em fazer. Eu pesero que cada post encoraje você a mostrar a parte de você que é tãããão VOCÊ, mas o mundo ainda não conhece.
  • Você terá acesso antecipado aos meus lançamentos e shows online porque eu quero compartilhar minha jornada musical com você.

"Estrada do Sol"

$5
per month
(texto em português abaixo!)
Estrada do Sol
means path of the sun in Portuguese and is a song by Dolores Duran and Tom Jobim of “Girl from Ipanema” fame. Dolores Duran was a famous Brazilian singer and composer from the 50s. She wrote several famous songs with Tom Jobim and others. Unfortunately, Dolores died just as Bossa Nova was being created, in the late 50s. When I sang at Baretto Piano Bar in São Paulo, I had the great pleasure of meeting and singing with her brother-in-law, David Gordon. A famous singer in his own right, David traveled to Brazil from Guyana at 19 and came to fame singing in clubs and on stages throughout Brazil. He took me under his wing when I began my career and I got to hear a few stories about Dolores and her sister, who he married. Maybe that connection (plus the fact that the song is beautiful) is why I decided to record "Estrada do Sol" for my first album, “Beginning”. 

At this tier:
  • You get everything in the previous tiers PLUS 
  • Each month, I’ll share a story from my musical journey and my life travels (I’ve visited over 30 countries and lived in 3!)  Plus...
  • I’ll share a monthly post in a new series of original poems and photos. Some of these poems will become songs one day and you’ll already know all the words!
Walking this Estrada do Sol with you makes the journey so much sweeter!  Thanks for believing in me and my work enough to join me at this level.

Estrada do Sol é uma música de Tom Jobim e Dolores Duran, uma cantora famosa nos anos 50. Ela escreveu diversas músicas com Tom Jobim e outros, mas infelizmente morreu quando a bossa nova ainda estava nascendo. Quando eu cantei no Baretto Piano Bar em São Paulo, eu tive o grande prazer de conhecer e me apresentar com seu cunhado, David Gordon. Conhecido por seu talento, David veio para o Brasil aos 19 anos, vindo da Guiana para cantar em clubes e palcos. Ele me colocou sob sua asa quando eu comecei minha carreira e me contou muitas histórias de Dolores e sua irmã, com quem ele casou. Talvez por essa conexão (além do fato da música ser linda) eu decidi gravar "Estrada do Sol" no meu primeiro disco, "Beginning".

Nesta categoria você recebe
  • Tudo das categorias anteriores
  • A cada mês, vou compartilhar uma história da minha jornada musical e das minhas viagens (eu já visitei mais de 30 países e morei em três"), mais:

About Alissa Sanders at Club Patreon

Hi! I’m Alissa Sanders an American jazz singer and world citizen who has made Brazil my home for a while now….
(segue em baixo para ler tudo em português) 

FINDING MY VOICE
In 2018, I started a journey to find my voice. That might sound strange coming from a singer, but I realized that I had never considered what I wanted to say/sing with my voice or what I could uniquely bring to the songs I was performing on stage. I wanted to meet my voice, fall in love with my voice- engage it, let it show me who I am. I wanted to let the artist in me come out to play.  I also wanted to return to the road because travel inspires self discovery in me like nothing else.   This all led to creating "Finding My Voice",  the umbrella under which everything else I do is encompassed.  When I am composing songs for upcoming EPs and CDs, writing poems, photography, producing a web-series about my travels and music, organizing intercultural music collaborations, writing poems and stories for books in progress,  I am finding my voice and learning how to use this voice to contribute, to share, to heal, to inspire, to bring beauty and something that feels good to our world in transition.

CLUB PATREON

Leonardo da Vinci, Mozart, William Shakespeare have to drive for Uber or wait tables to support themselves as artists.  If that had, they might have never found the time or energy to create their great works.  But in modern days, artists sometimes have to treat their art as commerce or if their art is not something that is considered commercial or popular, they might just have to be an artist in their spare time between working to survive   I am thankful that Patreon gives both artist and art lovers another choice!  On Patreon, artist can share the products of our inner muse and art lovers can share in process by supporting this work.  Patreon gives you the opportunity to fund the art that inspires you and bring you joy.  And your contributions support artist to continue making the art you love.  That makes both the patrons and the artists happy .  It's a win- win for both of us!

Take a moment to read through the different tiers of support that I've created, each named for a song that I love (and maybe you do too!)  Choose the level that best suits you at my Club Patreon, receive exclusive content and  my latest work before it goes public plus some really fun gifts that I will send you from around the world.  Your membership in my Club Patreon makes it possible for me to continue discovering my voice and sharing does discoveries with you, first! 

And may my journey, in some way big or small, inspire you to live your dreams, discover your authentic voice and to share it with the world!

Goals
