 LET'S SING SONGS ABOUT HARRY POTTER TOGETHER 

My name is Grace Kendall, and there are few things I love more than wizard rock. It's a community of people who have spent over a decade enjoying music inspired by the Harry Potter books! I started writing wizard rock in high school and have drifted away over the past decade as a songwriter, instead writing about my life and other nerdy things I like... but it's time to come back to my roots.

 WHAT'S THE PLAN, STAN SHUNPIKE? 

I want to spend the next year working on songs with other people. The plan is to spend one year co-writing a series of 12 wizard rock EPs. Yep, that's one for every month! I want to focus on female and nonbinary Harry Potter characters, working in different musical genres and telling unique stories.

I want to push myself to work with other artists, people outside of my usual circle of friends. Collaborating with other people is a SCARY process, but it's so rewarding. I want to make music that is different and new, to stretch myself as a writer and let the music live its best life with other performers and producers. And I want to use my own voice less and record different voices more - really step into the "writer" role and see what happens when other people bring my ideas to life.

 TIMETURNERS AND TIMELINES 

I'm aiming to release one EP each month, but timelines will be flexible. Each EP will have at least two songs on it. It might not be super polished, it might not be super long, but it will be new and it will be awesome! Some EPs will be given away for free; some will be sold on Bandcamp; some will be exclusive for Patrons. Every one will be different and special and really, really interesting. Patrons will be the first ones to hear these new songs, and Rockstars at the $5 tier will be the first to have their own digital copies.

 LET'S DO IT TOGETHER! 

Here's where you come in. I want to listen to your ideas, ask for your advice, and grow from your reactions to the work. I plan on documenting the journey pretty heavily, regularly sharing demos, sketches, ideas, and bits of the recording process along the way. I work better with a community, a group of people who are enthusiastic about the project and will both encourage me and keep me accountable. I always want to share this process with people and I'm never sure where to do it. I'm hoping that Patreon can be that place.

 HOW WILL YOU SPEND MY GALLEONS? 

All of the money from this Patreon will go towards writing, recording, and producing the EPs. This isn't money for me - it's money to pay the artists I dream of working with, to help compensate them for their time and labor. I've been so lucky and honored to have worked with so many talented musicians and producers for free over the years. My friends are amazing generous souls who collaborate because they love music. And I want to be able to pay those people, friends and strangers alike, for their work.

 THANK YOU!!! 

I have so many ideas, and I can't bring them to life without your help. I thank you so much for your support and look forward to sharing this year of music with you! Let's make some magic!
