Why, hello there! Most of you know me as the upright bass-wielding lead lady from sultry roots trio, Coyote Grace. Or perhaps you first spied me alongside my sweetheart and fellow folksinger, Tylan Greenstein (check out her Patreon page HERE). Or maybe I sat next to you in 8th grade algebra, or you just spotted me on the go-go box at El Rio in San Francisco last weekend. Any which way you slice it, I'm pleased as pie that you're here.
WHAT THE #*@& AM I DOING NOW?
This year, for mental & physical health reasons, I am taking some much needed time off the road. Meanwhile, I have been chosen to participate in a very cool project called Real Women Real Songs:
I have mostly been enjoying this new challenge... except when I have been in the throes of loathing, denial, mockery, and outright temper tantrums about it all. However, some really cool stuff has resulted from this weekly deadline-induced panic attack. Thus far, I am apparently capable of writing:
- modern-day gospel song (no God required)
- country murder ballad waltz (rated PG-13)
- sassy schoolyard rhyme (complete with hand-jive)
- based-on-real-life awkward stories (not mine!)
- adaptation of someone else's poetry (aka - stealing)
- stream-of-consciousness free-write lyrics (more-hyphens, please)
- Downton Abbey-inspired love song (fictional characters have feelings, too!)
WHAT THE #*@& DO I WANT FROM YOU?
Really, I just want your undying love and devotion.
But failing that, I'll take your money.
Just look at it this way: I am writing 4 songs each month (1 per week), which means...
At $1/song, that's like buying me a chai latte (soy, please)
At $3/song, it's like going out for happy hour drinks (cheers, mate!)
At $5/song, that's the same as treating me to a movie
(with popcorn & milk duds, of course)
At $10/song, it's like you're gifting me
with a relaxing groupon massage
(a little lower, ahhh...)
At $20/song, it's like going to see
an inspiring Broadway play
(skidoo... hatcha... whoopee)
Worried about overspending? Never you fret, my pet. Patreon lets you set a maximum monthly amount, so you won't ever go over your limit if I end up going on a songwriting spree.
WHAT THE #*@& DO YOU GET OUT OF THIS DEAL?
Rewards! Check out the options below and see which amount tickles your fancy.
And infinite warm fuzzies for being a "patron of the arts".
As you will see in all these different Patreon projects, EVERY DOLLAR ADDS UP.
Your seemingly small donation each month, combined with everyone else's, will make a HUGE difference in my daily life, enabling me to connect to you (my people!) and focusing on making creative content to put a smile on your face or mess up your mascara... or hopefully both at the same time!
Thank you SO MUCH for your generosity and continued support through all of my artistic manifestations. I am eternally grateful.
