Presently a composer of orchestral alternative rock with electronic elements, I adopted the stage name The Lady anoNYMous as a writer and spoken-word artist over a decade ago, performing on stages all over Portland, OR. Once upon a time, I also fronted a few metal projects. However, I'm trained as a pianist. and have played around with every instrument I've been able to get a hold on, but piano has remained my first love. I've been enamored with the music of Tori Amos and Amanda Palmer ever since it first reached my ears, and I've always wondered what it would sound like if piano rock was fused with industrial and trip-hop styles, or if piano had a more prominent role in alternative rock in general. So after drifting away from the performing arts and being in limbo for several years, I set out to make the kind of music I imagined, taking on the name The Lady anoNYMous yet again.

Part of my mission is to make my music easily accessible, making it as freely available as I can while still trying to make a living as an artist. This is where patrons of Patreon can help me. With your pledges, I can create the music that I've always wanted to hear, while distributing it to as many platforms as possible, including free streaming sites.

I'm also trying to get back on the horse as a writer, attaching short stories to the mythology behind my music, follow the characters Jade (and her friends) and an intrepid snail. I call these Snail Tales. While I'm not nearly as active a writer as I am a musician, I'm hoping to one day have several stories as companions to my songs.

If you enjoy my music and my stories, I would sincerely appreciate your considering a pledge of support toward my creations!

Goals
$0 of $500 per digital record or short story
I'm trying to get an album of what I consider to be my finest achievements in music distributed on CD and vinyl. To that end, I've been sending a digital demo of this album, entitled Nothing Left To Lose, to prospective record labels. However, it would be fantastic to get enough Patrons supporting my art to be do this independently! I've never done this before, so I'm not sure what exactly it will take, but $500 seems as reasonable a goal as any. In the meantime, I'd love to do a trial run with a three-CD set of the demo, with its companion album and an Addendum EP, which would, of course, be added to Patron Rewards.
