About

Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.”
– Bertolt Brecht.

Welcome to my art garden CSA. This is a place of vulnerability, creation and newborn resonances.

This is my incubator for resilience hearts and resonant bodies—the musical processing of a young, queer musician making her way in 2019.

Welcome to this bread crumb trail of songs and poems —it is a labyrinth of impermanent nourishing, a mandala tracing the movements of my transforming heart, as I plumb and press on, looking for the tools to be a more resilient, joyful human in a world that hovers on the frantic edge of a knife.

If you are reading this, I believe you are supposed to be here.

You are supposed to be here regardless of whether you choose to support my work on this platform or any other, monetarily or otherwise, today or next year or never. I’m grateful for your presence and so glad you’ve alive to help make this world with me. Can we learn from each other how to move through this world more gracefully, and with more bravery, compassion and vulnerability? I suspect so.

About me and what I do:
- I live and breathe on stolen Duwamish land in South Seattle.
- I write folk songs for movement building, and for my own growth and resilience
- I'm working on a new album, which will likely be out late in 2019 or early 2020!
- I co-own a small recording company called Rolling Crone Records, which prioritizes queer and womxn artists and makers and I sing in the experimental synth project Pink Shadows.
- I co-run a bi-monthly house show series called Wildlands that brings artists writing music for the earth into peoples homes to spark inspiration and community.
- I believe that music is a potent medicine and a means to reach through barriers that otherwise cannot be breached, and to heal our bodies and hearts.
- And, I believe that with our environment in a state of runaway human-caused climate chaos, with racial and gender injustices stacking up as our political system committing acts of violation against our bodies and taking aim at the those most vulnerable in our society, we sure do need a lot of healing right now.

What happens here on Patreon:
Patreon is a way that you can support me monthly, transferring your precious energies (in the form of the US dollar in this case) to help me bring more music into this world. In gratitude, I bring you new music, writings and poems each month, and try to be as present and authentic as I can. Sometimes I am able to contribute more on this platform, and sometimes less. But energy moves in ways that we can’t predict, and I trust that we each are able to give as we are able to each other, as we practice reciprocity in all parts of life.

Right now, your support at any level is primarily helping me to fund my current album-under-construction, including studio time, paying my sound engineer and producer, and mastering. I put out a live in-studio album "Right Back at You" in late 2018, but this will be my first full studio album. It also helps me make more space to work part-time and participate more fully in activism and movement work here in the Pacific Northwest for climate and social justice.
Goals
$85 of $200 per month
I'll be able to spend more time and energy (whether it be physical, brain power or emotional) on each song I create and share, and get them out more frequently.
