About

Risks and challenges

It’s all or nothing on Kickstarter! We meet our $25K goal or we make $0K.

Without you to fuel this feel-good machine, we will not have the financial means it takes to reach those who need this music. But together I know we can cast this love light far and wide. All we need to do is raise at least $25K to do this effectively, without big corporations....no big deal!

Am I feeling freaked out? Yes.
Am I scared? Uh huh, yup.

It’s difficult to ask for help and I’ve had my fair share of “OMG WHAT AM I DOING?!” moments. Let’s be real, I’d be lying if I told you I did not. Yet I believe in the light inside of you and that you can feel good too! I know there is power of music and community to influence seas of change and that together we can be better.

    Custom Painted Cello with a Purpose

    Own one of only two signed cellos painted with a purpose from the set of "I Can See You" and album artwork photoshoot! These "stunt" cellos, after I submerged them underwater (it's amazing what great condition they still are in!) I dried out the cellos then painted them in my driveway, transforming them into art for the album cover! The Purpose: a portion of these proceeds will benefit two non profit organizations that are near and dear to my heart. CELLO 1: "The 'Here We Are' Cello" will benefit Girls Write Nashville - a non profit organization empowering young voices through songwriting, production and mentorship. CELLO 2: "The 'We Belong' Cello will benefit NAMI - the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Disclaimer: these cellos are not for playing. Please enjoy it as a piece of art to hang (wall mount included!) and cello-brate the feel-good in your home everyday, knowing every time you see it that your contribution supports music and education!
