It’s 1:03 am on a Thursday. I’m sitting in bed, alone in my room. As I type, it occurs to me that Dolphin Safe Tunes has been live on iTunes & Amazon for a little over 49 hours now. A concept that still seems unfathomable….
For over a year, the EP has existed outside of reality as a motley collection of melodies, poetry, and fragments of song ideas. The fact that Dolphin Safe Tunes exists now (in a tangible form) is truly mind-blowing.
As you know, this journey has been a tedious process, a multifaceted learning experience, and an all-around crazy adventure! For the past nine months, I’ve often been asked why I chose to make Dolphin Safe Tunes and the honest answer is this:
I made Dolphin Safe Tunes because of the happiness it brings me, the unknowns it forces me to question, and the adventures it dares me to take.
From the launch of the campaign, when I sat in my friend’s bathtub, clad in mermaid attire….To the choir room, where I watched students from Chicago Public Schools perform music I wrote in my bedroom…To the recording studio where I sang into an 83 year-old RCA microphone…. EVERY single moment of this journey has been its own unique adventure and the surprises along the way have brought countless smiles to my face.
If I’ve learned anything from this journey, it’s this:
Do for the sake of doing. Trust your curiosity and follow your happiness.
Lastly, I’d like to extend my sincere gratitude to each and every person who has supported me though EVERY step of the process. Thank you for being a part of thewhole and for simply believing in me.
Over the next few weeks, please continue to be patient as higher tier rewards are fulfilled. In the meantime, enjoy Dolphin Safe Tunes and please feel free to share the following links with anyone who might be interested in hearing the music you helped create.
