Welcome to the Patreon page for musician Cindy Jollotta and artist/playwright Daniel Reynolds! This summer we will be leaving the United States and embarking on a year-long project we’re calling The Artists’ Journey. The Journey is all about applying the steps of the Hero’s Journey to the life of the artist; represented in music, theater, and visual arts.

By joining us on this Journey, you make it possible.  Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your support! 

Cindy Jollotta: I have drawn on my past experience in the rock world where I was the front woman of the band Astronomia Nova, and the world of country music where I was half of the classic country duo The Podunk Poets, to create a new sound that blends honest and sometimes whimsical lyrics with dramatic arrangements and playful touches. Having performed throughout the western half of the United States, I am now looking to bring my new sound to a new audience. This new 'Southern Gothic' style amplifies the raw and open emotion of what I've gone through to make this first step of the journey.  

Dan Reynolds: I am a playwright and artist living in Los Angeles.  My art has shown at galleries and art shows throughout Los Angeles and Southern California, where I have also had my plays performed in various stages of development.  I view art and theatre as an exploration. In painting I try to capture an intimacy with my subjects, be it a person or a place, or even an idea, which can only be found by spending hours pushing pigmented oils around, exploring what that image is trying to say. It is the same process with my writing, but instead of pushing around paint I am pushing around characters. 
  
The Artists' Journey is about the both of us stepping out of our status quo, leaving comforts of home and steady income to embark on an artistic adventure - bringing our projects to the world. Cindy has just completed recording her new EP, which is launching its first single this month. Dan has been invited to share his art for the first time in Paris, France, historically one of the largest art centers of the world; and together Cindy and dan have written a new musical called Madness, (along with co-writer, Matt Tomas), which we will be developing and workshopping throughout the year in hopes of a 2019 production.

The Goal of the Journey is to create a new status quo. One in which our art becomes self-sustaining and enables us to continue to pursue bold new ideas and projects that will impact our fans. The first step to any journey begins with supernatural aid - and what could be more supernatural than building a way for our fans to be a part of this journey. So thank you all for being a part of this adventure.
