About

Take a Listen to the full song "Eyes" featured in the video:

Welcome!

This project is about a year of celebrating art and music. Ryan and Danielle are working together to “harvest” their own unique talents to bring together both the visual and auditory arts.  We are setting out to create four EP albums with original artwork. Each album will be released around its respective seasonal equinox with a live musical performance from Ryan as well as a gallery showing of Danielle’s album artwork all for your viewing and listening pleasure (lucky you!).

The growth and change of ideas is fundamental to our arts as well as to our lives.We want to be able to represent the constant changes and beautiful transitions that take place in not only the natural world around us, but the changes that take place in our lives, music, art and community. The concept that “it takes a village” is something that not only resonates with us as local artists but within our goals for the community at large. To celebrate the coming together to make change, to support ideas, and to cultivate beauty in our world is the driving force in our year long project.

As a backer, you become part of our project. With your help, the opportunity for a growth in community, art and music thrives and can be harvested to see another season. 

The goal of this project is to raise $8,000 (or more!) for various costs associated with producing the albums, creating the artwork, and performances and art shows. Your help goes such a long way in this process and is greatly appreciated! Here’s how that $8,000 breaks down:

-$1,350- production for one EP album (x4...remember an EP for each season! $5400)

-$450-room and promoter fees for each music and art show (x4 $1800)

-$2,500- for all of the sweet rewards we want to give YOU!

Total- $9,700

So, our goal of 8,000 is not quite what we actually need in order to make this project happen. We believe in this project and are invested in making it happen and are willing to dip into our pockets to make this a success. We hope you are, too! With your support and contributions our wish is to exceed our goal point and keep harvesting!!

Rewards: 

We are determined to make sure that for every contribution comes with a sweet reward. From posters and t-shirts to original art work by Danielle and private lessons and performances by Ryan. With your contribution, you get to make this happen with us! People helping people makes awesome music and art, right?

Thank you and we love each and every one of you.

Risks and challenges

As this is our first KickStarter project we have tried to map out the next year’s ambitions to the best of our abilities. However, there may be some unforeseen hiccups and challenges and possible delays in production. We aim to our do our best to stay on track and produce the music and art that you are patiently waiting for throughout the next year. We promise to diligently ensure all rewards are distributed and given back to you in timely fashion! We are prepared to do everything in our power to conquer any obstacles that come our way.

We look forward to this great collaborative project with YOU! Thanks in advance for all your support!
