About

Please join Delamuse in launching our break-out album "Let it Rain" into the world to be shared and enjoyed by all! Many of you may not know that my brother, Matt Miller, and I have been quietly creating a vast musical library of original music. We feel that it is time to get our music “out there” and we are humbly reaching out to you for any help you can contribute in this first phase of “stepping out”.  SCROLL DOWN to hear, see and read more!

"LET IT RAIN"

 "SMILE"

 "THE BELL CHIMES AGAIN"

We realize that there are a million talented singers and songwriters today. What makes us special is the brilliant and prolific songwriting of Matt and our divine gift of a sibling collaboration! Matt has written hundreds, maybe thousands of songs, and I, Kimbirdlee, am the lucky one who gets to sing and play these songs with him. We’ve had a lifetime of experiences together in music, art, nature, family and overall life.

We have spent countless hours in the studio already and have released our first album as Delamuse. It is already available on iTunes, Amazon, CdBaby, etc. We also have our first album out “Foolish Heart” under the name La Boheme, which is really cool, but as digital distribution goes, we earn from $.01-.50 each time someone plays a track. We finally reached $50 after a year of distribution! It’s like a joke, if only we didn’t depend on music as a career! Ha ha!

SO… we need to take some crucial steps to solidify ourselves as a real live musical entity. We need your help in establishing ourselves and giving us the ability to share our music.

Our Hope:

Delamuse goes beyond self-indulging exploration of art - Our true desire is to have a positive impact on our community through developing the arts. We want to inspire creativity for all ages and all cultures .We have access to many diverse audiences through: 1. art shows 2. theater connections 3. online community 4. private events of our friends and family (YOU!!!) 5. benefits (i.e.: Children’s Hospital of WI) 6. educational avenues (Kimbirdlee is a teaching artist) 7. New York City - Wisconsin - Chicago - California

We’ve been chugging along now for a few years, saying to ourselves “Let’s just see what happens…”. We’ve been 100% DO-IT-YOURSELF to the degree that we even burn and print our own CDs. As artists, we struggle to make single dollar, yet we spend hundreds of hours creating, manifesting our visions and inspirations into tangible art, constantly learning the technical aspects in the recording studio, doing our own sound at our gigs, videotaping on the fly!

We need to get organized with proper tools:

1. A great website 2. Legal fees like trademarking our name 3. Physical CDs to distribute 4. Professional Recording & Mastering - Audio and VIdeo

So, we know what it takes to step it up… We have an infinite amount of music and art to share… All we need now is the funds to launch "Let it Rain" by Delamuse the right way. PLEASE help us get our life-long project off on the right foot!

And we are making this FUN by creating rewards and gifts for you guys when you donate to us. We are going all out because we love you. You are the reason we make art and sing songs and keep being creative.

Here are the paintings by Matt and Kimbirdlee that are included in our rewards packages:

Risks and challenges

Challenges:

Why are we coming to you for help now?

We have a ton of ideas, but we are often stopped before we can start because of financial limitations.

For instance, Kimbirdlee can do graphic design, videography & website design to promote Delamuse, but if all her time is spent on that, then she makes no money to feed her two growing boys!

Between the two of us we have the artistic bases covered.
It's very difficult when the world says, "sorry - no money means no art."
We want to change that!
