"Music is probably the only real magic I have encountered in my life. There's not some trick involved with it. It's pure and it's real. It moves, it heals, it communicates and does all these incredible things." – Tom Petty

I have these words auto-fill the bottom of my personal email. For me, truer words have not been spoken. 

I believe that I was put on this planet to be a carrier of music. As a vocalist, I have had the privilege of learning and sharing folk traditions from all over the world. As a teacher, I see my students unfold and release their fears through unleashing their unique voices. As a production manager, I worked with a choir that uses music to break down the walls of race, religion, class, gender, sexuality, and cultural differences and sing with one voice. As the creative director of an independent label, I work toward supporting the voices of other artists. And as the writer of my own music, I strive to deepen relationships with other people and with myself. I hope to inspire other musicians to do the same. 

I invite you to join my community. I want to share my experience of music and its power in my day-to-day. I want to open a dialogue with you. The more we acknowledge the healing and unifying power of music, the better off the world will be. 


Frequently Asked Questions

What is my patronage supporting?
On the surface, you are enabling me to make music and build connections with other humans, but under that, there is a cost of living that is a bit more humbling for me to talk about.

In 2010, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and enteropathic arthritis in my sacroiliac joint. It has been a struggle over the years to get my symptoms under control. At times, it got so bad that I was walking with a cane and suffering more than I was living. My condition got worse as I got busier at my job and had less and less time for self-care and music. The job provided a steady paycheck and health insurance that supported me through the diagnosis and the trial-and-error treatment, but also provided the kind of stress that aggravated my illness.

At the end of 2017, I made the decision to leap toward my art. When I left my job, I also left the health insurance behind. Eighteen months later, paying for my own insurance has become unsustainable. My symptoms are now under control, thanks to the miracle of modern medicine, but medicinal miracles cost a ton of money. My insurance costs me nearly $600 per month. If I can make up that amount through Patreon monthly, I will have so much more energy and time to focus on making music.

Wait, so how do I support?
You can become a patron right here on this page! I have monthly pledge options, "per thing" options, and one-time donation options. All of it will support my work.

What does "per thing" mean, and how many times a month will there be a new thing?
A "thing" could be a new video, an unreleased song demo, an online concert. What "things" are will change over time, but I will involve you in this process to make sure you're on board!
I never post more than three things a month.

What if I only want to support one thing a month?
When you're checking out, select "Set a monthly max." There you can specify that you'd like to limit your support to one thing a month.

Can I stop donating in the future if I can't afford it?
Of course! You can cancel or adjust your pledge amount for any reason at any time.

Do I have to pay in US dollars?
Nope! Everything is shown in US dollars on the website, but you may use any currency and it will be automatically converted.
