There is nothing stopping singer/songwriter Rhonda Funk from accomplishing her goals and dreams of becoming a hit songwriter in Nashville.  After nearly losing her life and surviving a brain surgery for an aneurysm in September of 2016, Rhonda picked up a guitar that December, (a piano player who only knew a few guitar chords) and made herself learn to play it. 

"After 20 years of writing and recording three independent Christian albums, I had just announced the beginning of September that I wanted to record my first country album. Two weeks later I suffered a mini-stroke sitting at lunch with a client. A week later I had brain surgery to save my life," explains Rhonda. 

Two months later she found herself holding a guitar at Sunday Guitars in Bend, Oregon saying "I'm still making that damn album." 

And she did.  March of 2017, Rhonda stepped foot into Omnisound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee and recorded 10 songs on her independent release "Someday" (available on iTunesSpotify, AmazonCD Baby, and wherever music is sold). That week she was blessed to perform at an open mic at The Bluebird Cafe, Blue Bar and Rack Room in Midtown and started networking with incredible songwriters already pursuing their dreams.  

"I have never felt so at home as I did in Music City.  It was like suddenly I was where I was always supposed to be," tells Rhonda.  "I declared then, that as soon as I could, I was moving to Nashville to give my dream a real shot." 

Rhonda traveled back and forth to Nashville from her home in Oregon and spent two weeks at a time working with industry professionals, networking and singing in writers rounds. Meanwhile, she was invited to perform for nearly 70 weeks in a row at venues small and large, her biggest being the LRS Fest in 2017 in Paulina Oregon, ending with her involvement with the Oregon Jamboree Mystery Concert opening for Daryl Worley at Oregon State University early 2018, and taking the stage at the Oregon Jamboree in August of 2018 to perform in front of a few thousand people.  

Come May of 2018, everything fell into place for her to make the move for good. 

"I'd never lived outside of Oregon or Washington, but I packed up my car and drove away from everything I've ever known...my family, my friends, on my birthday....not even kidding.  It was the week after my youngest graduated high school. I was an empty nester, and I knew if I was ever going to have a chance, it was right then. So I filled up the tank and drove across the country." 

Now, spring of 2019, less than 8 months into her move she has been featured at the Smokey Mountain Songwriters Festival with Nashville Rising Song,  Tin Roof (Demonbreun and Broadway) with Rise 615 and Last Train Home Nashville, and in several writers rounds at The Commodore Grille, Millennium Maxwell House, Belcourt Taps, and several others. 

"I've written over one hundred songs since my album, most of them with the incredible songwriters I've been blessed to network with here in Nashville." 

Living the dream alone is hard, but Rhonda, starting over after becoming divorced in 2017, finds it twenty times harder than it was before.

"I don't want to be here (in Nashville), giving up everything, working this hard outside of music just to stay afloat," says Rhonda, "and trust me most of the time I am drowning," she adds," I don't want to be here with my dream THIS CLOSE....and not be able to afford to take it the necessary steps to get the music into the hands of the people that can actually make something happen with it.  If I cannot demo the songs, or afford the time it takes to be out networking (because I'm struggling to make ends meet outside of music just to be a single woman living on my own), then the music just sits here. Unheard.  Forgotten. I have NO intention of coming this far just to come "this far" if you know what I mean."  

"What would it mean for you to be a partner?" questions Rhonda, "It would mean that YOU become a part of my dream! Oh my gosh, it would change my future!" she says. 

With several people working together, giving small amounts of money each month to support Rhonda's music, BIG things can happen.  

"We are THIS close......THIS CLOSE!" says Rhonda. "Now it's time to see what can REALLY happen when God is in control and people like us partner together to bring a dream to life!" 

"I am so incredibly humbled and grateful for each person investing in me, in my dreams. And I'm really excited about this platform which gives supporters a special place to get involved and to join me in this journey as an insider to see and hear special things that can only be seen and heard right here as a  Super Fan.  And that's exactly what you are to me when you say yes to supporting me....a SUPER Fan!!! I can't do it without you, I honestly cannot. So, thank you.....from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for loving me, supporting me, and most of all believing in me!!! Let's go win a GRAMMY!!!" 

Love, 
Rhonda
