Hello and thank you for visiting my page on Patreon! This project is dedicated to emboldening Lydia Violet's music project as she in turn emboldens a vision that values cultural contributions, community activism, creativity, environmental justice, and music education. These values are precious in our current political and planetary moment. If you share in this vision and wish to help create a culture of beauty while celebrating a diversity of musical traditions and a great love for the Earth, you are in the right place.

By contributing your tax-deductible donation to this campaign you will be directly supporting Lydia Violet. Who is Lydia Violet? I am a Bay Area violinist and vocalist, teacher, activist, and event producer. I am deeply inspired by folk, blues, and protest music traditions. In my solo project I combine some of my favorite instruments like the fiddle, banjo, and stand-up bass with 3-part harmonies to offer a soul-folk revival experience. I also have gotten to play & collaborate with some incredible musicians! In the past year I have had the pleasure of working with Rising Appalachia, Climbing PoeTree, Lyla June, and have been featured on Democracy Now! w/ Amy Goodman. 

I have also studied closely for 9+ years with deep ecology elder and Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy, learning how we can metabolize our concerns around our current planetary moment into action, resiliency, and profound communion with our human and more-than-human communities. Macy's work helps people transform despair and apathy, in the face of overwhelming social and ecological crises, into constructive, collaborative action. It brings a new way of seeing the world, as our larger living body, freeing us from the assumptions and attitudes that now threaten the continuity of life on Earth. I have studied and co-facilitated with Joanna for many years, and now run The Music As Medicine Project, an organization committed to democratizing access to music, music education, and community healing. 

To date I have been mostly self-managed and funded, pouring my resources into a vision I believe it. The good news is that the success of my music project, community events, and classes has led to invitations to play and teach all over the country. The difficult part is that I am also no longer able to personally finance the needs of this growing project, and that's where I need your help. When you subscribe to support me on Patreon, your funds will directly help support needs like management and professional content creation which are vital for a musical artist to succeed.

I know that this is absolutely possible, because we live in a time where people still care deeply about art and community resilience. If enough people sign up to contribute towards the my vision, I will be resourced enough to create more top-quality content, as well as more culturally rich community events. In a time when there are those creating cultures of fear and violence, it is more important than ever to respond with creating culture that forges resilience, kindness, creativity, and courage. Patreon is a way for that to remain sustainable, and for the production quality of my offerings to continue improving.

The Lydia Violet music project is ready for wings. I will keep creating art no matter what my financial situation is. And for this music project to have a decent chance at success, I need to be able to fund high quality media, live band tours, invitations to open for larger groups, etc. Your support would immensely help me be able to do these things. 

Currently I play artist, manager, booking agent, teacher, event producer, graphic designer, video editor, CFO, curriculum developer, and more! Needless to say, I am ready to delegate some of these tasks to others, and just need to resources to do so.

So please, take a look around. And if you like what you see, and want to help stoke the fire of this project into it's next incarnation, please pledge a monthly amount here through Patreon. 

What is Patreon? What's in it for you?

Patreon is a platform that allows you to sign up to contribute a monthly amount of your choice to my projects, and allows me to post content exclusive for you as a patron of my work! Depending on your monthly pledge amount you will have access to:
- Pre-releases of my music
- FREE MP3 downloads
- Monthly vocal exercise video lessons
- Monthly full song video lessons with melodies & harmonies
- Pre-releases of music videos
- Exclusive Patreon video/blog content
- Workshop discounts
- One-on-one vocal or violin coaching
- A private house concert!

 
With your support, I will be able to:

- Cover management costs for The Music as Medicine Project.
- Accept touring opportunities that would otherwise be difficult to accept due to funding.
- Create music videos. In this age of state-of-the-art media, it is more important than ever to have professional media for outlets to share your art with the larger world, as well as with event bookers.
- Produce local events focused on fundraising for/highlighting other non-profits and their work.
- Open access to workshop programs to all interested attendees independent of income, while fulfilling my own financial needs.

- Grow a music and community project that cultivates resilience and beauty in the world.
