Get to know me beyond the pizza jokes

Hey there! My name is Alessandra, but you probably know me as Psamathes. I am a professionally trained singer from Rome, Italy, who makes vocal covers and writes vocals and lyrics for original music. I have been studying vocal technique for over 10 years, exploring different singing styles, from powerful high belting to soaring operatic vocals. I've been singing in bands, choirs, and as a solo act in various genres. I developed control over different registers and trained my range to almost 4 octaves (G#2-F#6). I try to combine my own unique voice with this versatility to sing a bit of everything, and it's a lot of fun!
I started realizing that singing was my life after winning a music contest in high school (with this song), but unfortunately I wasn't allowed to pursue music at the time - despite all my music teachers encouraging me to do so - and I ended up studying languages at university instead. While I enjoyed my studies, and majoring in Japanese gave me the chance to have wonderful experiences abroad, I also suffered greatly from not being able to follow my calling. 
After graduating, I decided I couldn't ignore singing anymore, so I started training with two professional opera singers who are helping me build a classical repertoire. I also started a YouTube channel to publish videogame music and anime covers, and to experiment with singing in different genres. I set one goal for myself: to make a living by being a full-time vocal cords player. Singing to me is like pizza, I absolutely cannot live without it.

What I'm doing on Patreon while the dough rests

I decided to launch a Patreon to fund my opera studies, to upgrade the equipment in my tiny home studio as my skills develop, and to eventually hire musicians to arrange covers of the songs you will request. In the future, I also hope to be able to fund a full-length original album! You'll always be able to find my vocals on my YouTube channel, on Spotify, on some Pixel Mixers albums, and on collab covers with other amazing musicians.
What you will get by becoming a Patron is early releases and WIPs, but this space will mainly help me interact with Patrons on an individual basis, and to share my hard-earned expertise in a way that suits your unique voice! The tiers are set up in a way that lets me give you content each month, no matter how many covers I'm publishing. It can also simply be used as a tip jar, and if you can't afford being a Patron that's also fine! Showing your appreciation and helping me reach a bigger audience by sharing my work is just as important and valued <3

Thanks for reading so far and thanks for your support. Listen to music and eat pizza: you'll never regret doing either of those things!

Goals

Regular uploads! Licensed covers! With 100$ per month I would be able to hire someone to help me out with the instrumental side of covers, which would make it possible to have at least one licensed cover per month. I will be able to add a reward for requests
This goal would also help me finance my own vocal and music theory training.
