Hello friends!

Thank you so much for being here.

I'm really excited to be launching this community, and I'm so glad that you're taking this leap with me.

Over the past 15 years, I've dreamed about what it would feel like to be approached by 'industry' people, and what it would take for me to be willing to sign on with a company, label, or representation.

This feeling is a mystery no more.

In this last year, I've built a lot of momentum around my career. Sharing the stage with Pete Seeger opened up the door to more opportunities than I could have ever imagined, and folks have started to take notice.

I'm so grateful, and I'm also more aware than ever that my independence is an asset.

As an independent artist, the only thing that I answer to is my integrity.

So this is where I'm asking for your trust and partnership.

I'd love for you to join my community as I continue to release new songs and projects. What types of projects? I have so many ideas! A sing-along album, a Spanish album, a lullaby album...there are so many things that I want to do.

So how do you join in? 

Basically, you just pledge to buy what I release. You pledge to trust me. The price that you pay is completely up to you.

I'll be releasing approximately a song a month. Some months more, and some months, I might have nothing to put out.

Here's how it works: You pay what you want per song. On a month where I release two songs, you'll be charged twice, and on a month where I release one song, you'll be charged once.

Say that I have a super productive month and release 27 songs!?!

First of all, that would be amazing, and I would love for that month to happen.

Second, you can put a cap on what you spend in a month. This way, you can easily stay within your budget.

Releasing music when I want, to people who want it, is the way that I've always done things. Working with this community will allow me to get new music out more quickly and more frequently.

And it helps me keep my independence.

I want to make sure that I remain a grounded and compassionate human. Actually, I need to make sure that I remain a grounded and compassionate human.

I want to keep teaching music camp on the reservation. I want to keep helping with health clinics in the mountains of Mexico. I want to keep writing songs that matter. And I want to get these songs out to you.

The music business is shifting, and for that I'm grateful.

No longer do I need to look to the gate-keepers so that I can 'make it' as an artist.

I'm making it.

And in this community I can continue to make it. I'll make music. I'll share it with you.

Sound anything like what we've been doing for the last 15 years?

Thank you for helping me make music that matters. Thank you for confirming what I know: you can make music and keep your conscience.

I will continue to write songs about social justice in the world, and I will continue to spread hope and optimism.

Thank you for being a part of this community.

Much love,
Kristen
