My name is ellen cherry and I am a Baltimore, MD (US) based Song and Story Alchemist. I have spent the last two decades reading, writing, recording, singing, playing instruments and making music, by myself and in collaboration with others, in an attempt to calm my nerves, lift my eyes to the sky and contribute something to the chorus that is beautiful. I need both motivation to get myself back on the road and to create new work, but also support to cover the costs of touring (which I intend to get back to, in earnest in late 2017 and throughout 2018) and living indoors, during that process.
There's nothing like being in the presence of live performers--it is fundamentally better than anything through a computer or TV screen. I am again feeling the pull of wanting to perform for others--after a long time of dreading it. I want to encourage this feeling. I would like to invite you into a diary, here, where I will release content only for subscribers, months before it will be (maybe never) available to the public. I will post audio essays, videos, music, poems, and songs--at least two items per month for only $4/month (please feel totally free to pay more, if you choose!) Some of the content will be whimsical, some of it serious, some of it completely experimental--but it will all be made by me, to share with you.
The first set of content that I will post centers around audio essays I have already created surrounding a devastating car wreck in 2013 that took me off the road, essentially until now. I will be adding to these essays over the course of this subscription.
I believe that this will help ease the expense of touring and sustain this creative life. My goal, right now, is a 200 subscribers. Will you be one of them?
