Hey there, my name is Lyric Raven, and I am a 28 year old singer-songwriter, guitarist and educator from Minneapolis, MN. I am hoping to use your patronage to create music projects, videos, workshops, and an Earth Day themed album for children.

Singing with children is my passion and musical healing is my calling. I believe jamming and musical expression are all part of the path towards world peace and healing the earth.
#musicashealing #jammingforworldpeace


A LIL BACKGROUND
I studied Environmental Education with a minor in Social Justice at the University of Minnesota, and have been living in California for over 5 years. I formerly worked at Bird School of Music in San Francisco, teaching lessons and Music & Movement classes to 0-5 years, and have taught song circles and music workshops at Elementary Schools throughout the Bay Area.
I have been singing since I was 2, writing songs since I was 10, have had a guitar in my hands since I was 14. I have long dabbled with flute, piano, and percussion.

This year I have performed at art mixers, open mics, small venues and festivals, a proposal and a baby's first 100 days celebration. I often play solo, but I also am lucky enough to get to play with a variety of amazing musician friends I have made along the way. I love the magic of collaboration!



GOALS
~Finish my EP that I have had in the works for over a year featuring songs I wrote almost 5 years ago. This way I can move onto new projects, including an Earth Day themed children's album and my next full-length album I have already begun.

~Combining dance, photography, and film with my music to create beautiful art pieces with positive messages including radical self-acceptance, tolerance, body positivity, sustainability, peace and social justice themes. 

~Be able to afford continuing living in California, traveling for projects, and to offer free music events and workshops to children and community members.

~A music blog, touring and a video series are some of my long-term goals.


PROJECTS

  • Continuing to teach workshops in Elementary schools across the Bay Area for students who do not have music programs before a certain grade. I have done this in the past on a volunteer basis
  • Providing free/donation based Music and Movement classes for infants and toddlers and their caretakers/parents
  • Create a children’s album themed around the earth, sustainability and protecting the environment.
  • Finish my long awaited EP so I can move onto my next album!
  • Eventually create short film about musical healing and world peace, as well as be able to produce and edit music videos and hold public music collaborative experiments
  • Lyric Raven & Friends traveling around the Bay Area and the country spreading musical healing through performances, classes and special events! Specifically planning a summer tour to the Pacific Northwest and Minnesota.
  • More TBA!

Come along with me on this journey of creativity and sharing!

With your help I can spread music, peace and healing, while staying afloat in this harsh capitalistic society. As a teacher, artist and chronic illness warrior, it makes it extremely difficult to create, write, and rehearse without the peace of mind knowing one can stay financially afloat.
I currently substitute teach, nanny, work on farms and do work trade to supplement my income.

It has become increasingly clear to me that nurturing my musicianship and my dream of spreading peace through music is where my time and focus should be if I'm to create positive change in this world. Music is a gift to be shared! There's also fun perks for being a patron, like sneak-peaks, unreleased recordings and clips, original artwork, and more!

Thank you so much for believing in me and for being a part of Lyric Raven & Friends. A little goes a long way, and it sure means a whole lot to me!
