HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It is currently January 19th, and I’m still saying happy new year! Mainly because I’m so excited about what I have planned this year. I’m trying something new… which is actually doing publicly all the things I’ve already been doing behind the scenes or wanted to do for a very long time. I’m putting myself out there, and I’m so excited, and nervous. But hey, that’s a part of living, right?
For starters I’m amping up my website so that all I offer is available to the public. I’ll share a little bit here, but for more details you can check out my services page!
Facilitated Songwriting: Did you know I help people to write and record their own song? Songwriting is a great way to process life, feel heard, or gift to loved ones. My site is open for booking.
Mothers’ Circles: I’m hosting circles that support mothers using The Gathering album as a sonic space holder. We journal, chat, and witness each other in the most beautiful way. If you support women in your business or if you have a mothers group you think might be interested, please reach out to me.
Workshops, lectures, and consulting on lyrics and well-being: I am so very passionate about lyrics ability to impact well-being. I truly believe that it can support every human being on this planet. My master’s thesis has been downloaded over 175k times in over 200 countries, making it the most downloaded capstone in MAPP history. This tells me other people are curious about the topic. I create custom lectures or workshops for your demographic to bring another tool for wellness.
Performing: Back to my first passion, I love to perform. I have performed in house concerts, auditoriums, for rituals and ceremony, and as entertainment breaks in retreats or workshops. I adore thinking about your event and the best songs to play for your audience. Totally customizable, email me for questions and booking.
Second up: I’m starting to put my master's to use and speak at conferences on lyrics and well-being. First up, I’m speaking at the International Positive Psychology Association summit in Vancouver this summer. I’m co-leading a workshop on music, wisdom, and loneliness, and I’ll be on a panel for the humanities and well-being. I’m so excited for this next stage in my career and to be working with and learning from my MAPP colleagues.
Finally NEW MUSIC! I’m going to write and record a new song a month for all of 2023. 2022 was busy, and I didn’t write as much as I would have liked, so I’ve decided this goal will be the best way to make sure I’m still creating. AND I’ve decided to support this project by starting my very own Patreon page!
If you’re curious about Patreon, I have a post all about this platform and the project I’m working on this year. But in short, Patreon brings back the patrons of the arts by allowing fans to support the artists they care about with a monthly subscription. For as little as a cup of coffee a month, you can make a HUGE impact on an artist, not only by valuing their work through financial support but also by being a part of a community where they know that people want to hear their music. Patrons will get to hear the songs as they are written and the rest of the world will just have to wait until the end of the year when I release it to the streaming platforms.
I’m so excited to share this phase of my career with you and can’t wait to connect in 2023! Happy New Year, my dears!!
