Playing music and drawing all over everything are two things I've always loved doing. Oh, and painting, I love that too. Call me preoccupied, addicted, obsessed... but I like to think of it as disciplined, dedicated, devoted!

Either way, since I really can't stop myself from doing these things pretty much all the time, I might as well try and make the most of them, right? What exactly does that mean?

These days it means playing music every day to keep my fingers and voice warmed up and happy. It means enjoying the thrills of playing with others as much as possible, and performing out here and there. It means helping to spread music and art making happiness by teaching piano lessons and after school art classes. It means encouraging my 3 highly creative grandchildren in every way I possibly can... oh, and painting, painting, painting.

I am really excited to be making my first album. It will feature a collection of 10 songs, stories fueled by thoughts and moments that somehow beckoned for concrete recognition. There will be a few special guests joining me on this project and I'm looking forward to getting started.

This album will only be possible with your support. I am hoping to entice you not only with the promise of songs of course, but with handmade art prints and original paintings too! You can visit my website to have a look at some of my work.  www.jodykat.com 

It has been a pleasure to support several kickstarter projects myself. I LOVE the idea of everyone coming together, to feed and support each other in creativity.

Whatever fuels your own creative fire, I hope it is thriving!

I thank you in advance for any support you give to this project. Every amount, large or small, means so much and will make all the difference!
