Sharkk Heartt is creating Music for Equality

$125
per creation
You have found Sharkk Heartt, which is both a band name, and a brand of activism which believes that often being vulnerable is the fiercest way forward; which encourages speaking when we have the opportunity to speak or be silent about something that matters; which believes that standing on the right side of history means always working for a world in which all of us have the right to feel safe and be treated as equals, regardless of sexuality, gender identity, race, religion, or ability.

This is why Sharkk Heartt wears rainbow face paint when performing.

This is why Sharkk Heartt sings feminist anthems and songs about what it means to be part of a human family.

This is why Sharkk Heartt will make donating to organizations that work for social justice, equality, LGBTQ and women’s rights part of its artistic mission.

Magically, you are here reading this, and you now have the opportunity to become part of the community that brings Sharkk Heartt's mission to life. When you become a patron, for as little as $2 per month, you will gain access to EVERY NEW THING Sharkk Heartt creates, as well as updates on creative progress. When a new song has been written and its first tentative bedroom performance recorded, you will get to hear it. When a song grows up a little, becomes ready to share at a live show and gets immortalized on video, you’ll be the first to see that video online. When a new album is in recording and we are perfecting studio mixes, you’ll get to hear the imperfect ones.

Sharkk Heartt will share a version of a new song at least once per month, but never more than twice - this way you will never be charged more than twice a month for the amount you choose to pledge.

Right now, Sharkk Heartt has eight new songs ready to be produced and recorded. Demos of several of these are READY TO SHARE WITH YOU in video or audio form. When we reach the first $100 in patron support, these songs will begin to be released exclusively to you, the patrons.

Along the way, we will activate matching donations that will double that month’s fundraising and support organizations working for equality. Exciting, right?

This means that by becoming a patron, you will NOT ONLY get exclusive access to songs-in-progress as they get produced and recorded, you will ALSO be helping to unlock EXTRA fundraising potential, AND your contributions will make it possible for this music to give back to really good causes that keep us moving toward equality for all. It’s a trifecta we can all feel really, really good about.

So. Let’s do this. Sharkk Heartt is ready. Are you?

Goals
$125 of $200 per creation
When Sharkk Heartt reaches $200 per creation, that's when recording begins on the next Sharkk Heartt album! I'll go into the studio and start laying down tracks and vocals, and you'll get to hear the rough mixes before each song gets released! We'll ALSO unlock a one-time, $200 matching donation that will go straight toward recording studio costs!
