Dear fam, fae, friends, fans, and other readers,
On the 28th of August 2020, I officially released my first single! It was an incredible moment and a milestone in my life. Soon after I released my first music video, and since then I have been releasing more, and now I am writing my own songs and collaborating with producers. I have now reached over 28.000 streams, 1.400 Shazams, and radio airplay in Switzerland. I made that happen without any significant social media presence.
You probably have no clue how much your support means to me. From the first moment I was being called “gay” by classmates in elementary school, I was changed. It made me feel like I was wrong, and I started to hide my true self. I always wanted my true self to come back out, but the fear of being judged was already created and I spent the rest of my life trying to let me be myself again.
Even after five years of training for a dance and musical theater bachelor's degree, I couldn't let my walls down. Or after pursuing music for another five years, I still felt missing. I thought I had given up. I took time to heal and explore. I felt better and better.
Fast forward to the summer of 2020: the pandemic struck, and I was struck by inspiration. On a sunny morning, I recorded and released a cover of "I Follow Rivers", just like that. I felt comfortable with my voice, my creative choices, and I loved wearing a wedding dress in my first
At this point in time I have released three self-written songs. I want to release more and more. I imagine myself as an 80-year-old man still releasing songs every year. I plan to consistently build this career, but...
I need financial support...
I want to fulfill my dreams! I want to release ten songs, my album, and to make music my livelihood by the end of 2022- I can make it happen with your help.
For a donation of €20 or more, I will send you my physical or digital album by the end of 2022. Always feel free to donate more if you have it well financially, and love the arts (thank you <3). I will print your name inside the cd as well, and send it to you at the end 2022.
I want to show the world that anyone should be allowed to be themselves and that it’s never too late! But first, I am asking for your help.
Thank you for listening! Feel free to donate right now.or read more below.
CD or Vinyl?
I would like to give both options, but at this point, the promise of a CD as a gift for your €20+ donation is more likely to happen.
Is there a guarantee of receiving the CD?
No, there is a chance - as with everything - that there is a delay, or that it might not work out due to unforeseen circumstances. However, my dedication is grand.
