This page is dedicated specifically to my wine collection. <– just kidding sort of.
You must be here because you are a person that sees the value or art in this world, and that is so wonderful! And Soooo important!! People like you fuel my existence. I create things so that I can better the lives and touch souls of people who appreciate my art the most.
Often times, it feels like a grind, probably because it IS a grind! Being a musician today can be really tough – especially because a (very) large percent of CD sales & song purchases have decreased significantly since streaming services arrived on the interwebs. Every day is getting harder and harder for artists to get paid for the work we do.
I am a fan-funded artist.
Which means, I am not funded by a label. I rely on the support of amazing fans to keep writing, performing, and chugging along the artist train for as long as I can.
Often I get asked to perform my services for free, or if my songs can be used free of charge in promotional videos. I am THRILLED to be able to give away free song use to charities and causes for good when opportunities arise. It’s really quite an honour! But every now, and then I still get requests to use my art for free in exchange for ‘credit’ or ‘exposure’. Well, unfortunately exposure isn’t a sandwich that I can eat, or a bed that I can sleep in. 😟
So, how can you help?
First of all, thank you for being here and just being you. It’s sooo awesome that you’ve been browsing around my website and reading up on all things that are important in my life. I’ve spent a lot of time putting these shenanigans together and I’m grateful that you’re on the rollercoaster with me, and taking the time to enjoy it all! Your support means so much more than words can say.
Second of all, one of the BEST things you can do to support myself (and other similar artists), is to join my mailing list. <–This will allow me to keep you updated with new music, videos, stories and upcoming tours (woohoo! 🎉) I really REALLY want to stay in touch with you, and keep our friendship going for a lovely long time ahead. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Nothing would make me happier than to know that I have incredible people that I can talk to anytime, from all over the world. I hope you’ll be one of them!
And third… If my music has touched you in some way, please consider buying my music or leaving a donation below. (although you can’t see it, I’m putting my tail between my legs here!) It’s not easy asking, but if I don’t ask, perhaps you won’t know that I am in need. I’ve got website expenses, musical expenses and equipment costs coming outta my wazoo, monthly!! It makes me feel like this sometimes –> 😖 Stressed, because some months I barely break even. A couple dollars may not be a lot to you, but it could be all I need to help get back on track. If you find it in your heart to share a few dollars, know that it is helping tremendously, and your donation is forever appreciated. Your generosity is going towards bigger & better things- like new original songs to touch more hearts, more fun videos with different concepts, and my occasional chocolate bar treat on rainy days!
Consider showing your support with a one-time tip, or a monthly recurring donation on Patreon where you will get access to exclusive rewards upon sign up. –> And remember: What goes around, comes back around. Your donation will keep fuelling me to work extraordinarily hard to reach the world one heart at a time, and change the lives through the beautiful healing gift of songs & music.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
