I'm Muse. Thanks for stopping by my page!

I don't always have time to respond to individual comments, so if you've dropped a comment thanking me for faving your art - you're so welcome! Keep up your amazing work!

I'm originally from the tiniest state in the United States, although I tend to flit all over the place in search of adventure, inspiration, and kicks. Right now, I live in upstate New York, where I am studying music (I'm a classically trained mezzosoprano). Although I am primarily a singer, I also play harp and piano, and am hoping to pick up cello and taiko in the next year or two.

When I am not composing world, electronic and symphonic metal music, I'm usually writing books, taking photos or else posing for them, sewing, making artisan jewelry, or consulting at my arts studio, Nightkat. I run a seed company named Maenad Creative, providing web and social media consulting, arts management, business planning, and content and community generation and management.

I run a meta charity named Brightest World, a community dedicated to fostering and promoting humanitarian causes. Look us up on Facebook, and you can follow us on Twitter at the following (

Y'all know I'm busting my tookus to get into the Sibelius Academy next year, and I could use your help.

Just getting overseas and paying for accommodations plus food is going to cost me a bit under a couple of grand. After that, if I get in, I have to pay for a residence permit and airfare to return to Finland, plus get a bunch of my stuff shipped (and to get the permit, I have to show that I have enough to support myself without the aid of the Finnish government). 

So, if you can, please please PLEASE contribute a few dollars to my Indiegogo campaign to help me cover these expenses. I expect some scholarship backup, but I won't see any of that money until the school year starts, and these expenses and funds provenances will all come before I even set foot in Finland again. Not only is this a longtime goal, but I will likely be the first African-American student they've had, so you'll be helping to diversify a relatively homogeneous institution as well. 

If you can help, I'm grateful. Even if you can't, share the link around to your friends and encourage them to help if they can as well! 

Thank you in advance, whether you donate or signal boost!
