About

Dear friend,

My name is Leah Shoshanah and I'm a singer-songwriter, guitarist and cantorial soloist raised and based in Chicago. I am launching this Patreon site as a way to build sustainable and continuing support for my musical work. I write music to bring beauty into the world, to build community and to provide healing and strength. I do this with original lyrics and adaptations of Jewish prayers and devotional poetry.

The world is changing and I write music to facilitate this change in a positive direction. People need healing. The ways that society has been structured up until now (ways I hope will change!) have not supported human connection. Our current society is based on a system that pushes people to their limits just in order to survive. This leaves many of us feeling lonely and traumatized. This is why I write songs and play concerts-- to bring others into my humanity, facilitate connection, to provide a space for feeling emotion, to bring more beauty to the world, to bring joy, and to inspire strength in our communities as we can continue building a better society.

I give my music to the world as a gift. There is no amount of money that I could assign to the value of what I do, nor any way that I could add up the hours to tell you how much of my life songwriting occupies. Because everything I do goes into writing songs. In addition to practicing my instruments, writing lyrics, recording, sharing (via social media), there are so many other aspects that contribute to my art, like how I care for my body, the books I'm reading, a random conversation on the street, how it feels to breathe on any given day, or how the specific and changing hue of a red sky hits my soul as the sun rises and sets.

If you decide to offer your support through this Patreon page, you will be giving me a GIFT, with the return being that you are helping to lift up a voice (mine!) and help me add my message to the culture of our global community. Your support will allow me the ability to pay for my basic needs, so that I have a home to write this music and nourishment to fuel song creation. Your support will help me to bring these songs to more people, by helping to cover expenses for recording (equipment, hiring musicians, paying for studio time). Your support will help me continue to give this gift of music.

Additionally, as a patron, you will receive access to Secret Songs. These are songs that I have not shared with the world, may never share with the world, and/or that I am not ready to share with the rest of the world. 

I will make sure to post all of my creations to this Patreon feed, and, as a subscriber, you will be alerted every time I release something new! No donation is too small (or too big!).

Just as I offer my music as a gift to the world, I see any amount of support as a gift from the heart, like a hand reaching out to hold my hand, adding another light to shine on the path of life. Thank you for taking the time to receive the gifts that I give and for considering offering this gift of your patronage to me.

In gratitude,

Leah S.
