My name is Yonat Piva and I have been known to sing, dance, laugh, cry and heal.
Every month I am using this here space to post a voice lesson or new song. I also post reflections and insights about my creative process, mindfulness practice, experiences as a therapist, social worker, and mama. (Ah, all the hats we wear!)
THANK YOU!! TODA!! GRACIAS!!
You have arrived here on this little piece of internet-landia because you heard through the amazing interwebs, the grapevine or from my mom that I'm working on a new musical project and you want to know more. Oh I am so grateful that your ears have had the opportunity to hear my music at some point and that you might want to hear more someday... This is the biggest motivation for me to continue making time for music.
I actually put together this Patreon page 3 years ago in the 'before' time: Before I met my husband, before we got married, before we had a beautiful baby boy... Music has been on the back burner for a couple years now but I'm starting to feel the itch again. And I would love to have you help me scratch it... At the moment, my income from working as a therapist and social worker in Sonoma County is totally allocated to paying rent, bills and childcare so in order to fund time in the studio and performing, I need your help!
I know there are myriad important and urgent causes that deserve our attention and money. But if you have a dollar or few to spend on music and want to put it toward supporting an independent artist - I am at your service. This amazing internet platform is supporting artists of diverse genres and for multiple different sums each month. The range is from the lowest unknown entity to the eclectic artiste Amanda "Fucking" Palmer who is generating a whopping $43,000 per thing she creates (she has over 11,000 patrons)!
How it works is that your credit card or paypal is charged $1 (or more) each month and I get to make music. Magic. Your support allows me the freedom to make the music that moves through me while raising a family, keeping a roof over my head and putting food on the table. That is pure magic. And I am excited to shared the journey with you.
Hope to hear and see you on the inside!!
Forever & Always,
