We’re Selda and Derek. We write songs, we write musicals, and we tell stories. We are based in NYC but spend a lot of time in Nashville and LA making music. A LOT of music. Selda currently holds the record for "most songs written in wine bars" ."* Derek drinks a lot of wine to keep up with Selda.

*Disclaimer: As of now this record is untested by Guinness.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is an amazing platform for artists to share their work and for people to support them.

Building a community.
What fun is making music without sharing it?? Patreon is a platform for us to do just that. New songs, old songs, new cities, upcoming shows--we are constantly collaborating with new artists and finding new ways to explore the world through music. Want to follow along? Visit this page for exclusive insight and sneak peaks into our work and to see what's coming up. 

Your patronage helps us keep creating.
We're recording 3-5 demo recordings each month. Your involvement helps us defray these expenses such as studio time, rehearsals, musicians, engineers, etc. It allows us a greater creative freedom. 

Here's what you'll find on our Patreon page.

-Patreon Feed
-Updates from shows and behind-the-scenes peeks
-Monthly video of a new original song
-Weekly videos! 
-Want to hear the backstory of a song? You're in the right place. Expect old demos and the stories that made them songs

What's happened this year?
-our song "Filling Space" was given a single-song publishing contract by Ole in Nashville
-wrote the original music to the feature film "American Reject" co-starring Rebecca Black, Keala Settle and Angelica Hale
-from "American Reject" our song "Bing Bop Bam" was co-written with rapper Juvinille
-our musical MODERN will be featured in the NAMT Songwriters Showcase this October
-MODERN was a finalist for the O'Neill Musical Theatre conference, NAMT festival and is currently a finalist for the ASCAP Musical Theatre Workshop (with Stephen Schwartz)
-sold out multiple concerts at LA's Rockwelll and NYC's Cutting Room and The Duplex

Why should you become a patron?
-First of all, please don't feel like you have to.
-Your patronage allows us to spend more time making music!
Thank you for your support!
We love creating, and so deeply appreciate your help!
