Arise and Shine: Join Me On the Dare Dreamer Music Journey & Renaissance Artist Project

Above is an animation showing a snippet of lyrics for my song “Arise and Shine (Dare Dreamer)” and a little venturing into stop-motion (I love trying new things) The lyrics in the clip above say:

“Arise and Shine, Dare Dreamer can’t you see you’re full of purpose and possibility! So arise and shine O Sleeper, don’t give up now dare, Dreamer, arise and shine Dear Dreamer come alive!” That’s my message to YOU today and everyday!

A while back I shared how I have been pursuing my dream of inspiring others through music. It’s weird but I’ve been realizing that one of the reasons why I’ve been avoiding doing music is because I’ve been feeling so unconnected with so much of the music in the world and felt like I had to follow the way things have been done. I was like I don’t even like music as much as music artists do, I’m not a “singer,” I’m a writer/visual artist why do You want me to do this??? Then He told me though multiple ways, why can’t you be both, I made you that way…why can’t we merge our passions into something that hasn’t been seen before?

Dreamers often get frustrated because what God asks them to do doesn’t make “sense”, also because they are made to do something new and get tired of the status quo – usually because they are meant to shake things up to change the world – misfits are lit yo…🔥 we weren’t made to be “normal.”

I don’t want this to be about me – stars don’t shine alone in the dark sky. My dream is not celebrity but to ignite a movement to unite singers and artists who have a heart for creating art with a greater mission and together we support one another, collaborate and change the world. Sound like you? Send me a line!

<3 Why do so many great artists fall and why do so many artists struggle - maybe because we were never made to carry glory alone or to be worshipped but to unite to draw people to the greatest Artist of all.

youremadehellopurposeIt came to the point where I couldn’t even listen to music or enjoy it much, like I always felt like something was off for me. Not because other music is bad music but because when God wants you to step out into the unknown create something new He makes you restless and annoyed until you do it, lol…so don’t avoid your purpose. You won’t feel fully alive until you fully embrace your calling.

So much of music today follows a pattern and that’s cool, I understand there is strategy for commercial and practical reasons so people can sing along, but there’s something stirring in my heart that’s sooo…different. Something spontaneous, free and that breaks out of the “create music for an industry” mindset. It feels wrong trying to put on somebody else’s armor, and like I’ve been striving to be a “music artist” or make music that fits a mold – verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge. I’ve written songs like this but it’s also okay to break out of the mold…

What if we could create with childlike wonder, what if that’s the way we were meant to be since the beginning – everyone as artists, creating like their Creator, not art for applause, awards or career’s sake but because it’s like a heartbeat, a wild love language, it comes naturally like we breathe creativity and creativity sets us free to be more like Him and to be with Him…create art for Love’s sake.

What if alot of what we call excellent art today is excellent conformity? God is about patterns and order, but He isn’t predictable, containable or mechanical. We needa break out the box and color outside the lines to truly express Love’s heart!

There’s a new Renaissance brewing, of artists creating unseen, unheard-of art out of encounters with God to draw others in to deeper encounter with Him. This art is beyond what we’ve experienced before. Now is your time to arise and shine a greater light into the world, creating art “that draws on a different realm of beauty, excellence and creativity,”(words inspired from Bethel’s School of Creativity that I was able to experience recently).




From taking theater and ballet classes and taking part in a music training program I’ve been learning to stretch myself and grow in ways I never thought possible…


People from my church have encouraged me with words that I’m meant to be different and create a fusion of the visual and performing arts, and make music from the heart of God that sets people’s hearts free, songs of deliverance that maybe even supernaturally break through the mind and goes to the soul, words of truth that speaks to the lonely and broken and that they can speak over themselves. If that’s not a motivation to make music I don’t know what is…my dream is to bring true healing to people’s hearts and to do it differently.

Music is a language, from Heaven and it’s even more powerful than we even think. Our voices are world-changing – God spoke the universe into motion through His voice and the Word.

An industry doesn’t own music, “singers” don’t own music, God made music for everyone to embrace – everyone has a song! There’s something important to music, more important than the perfect voice, riffs and runs – there is something that connects us all, like it was a language we were all meant to use to communicate and it frees us to do it. What if we can sing like Heaven does to release Heaven on Earth?

Even God sings over us and this whole Uni-verse is His song over us, a beautiful song of love, every breath, star and flower a story of redemption and beauty, of a Lover drawing His children back in. What if the first language we ever heard was music, what if they sang in the Garden (whoa) and that we’ll sing for all eternity…

Above: Some lyrics of my song “Take It Back,” all about redeeming your life to embrace your freedom and the way life was meant to be…

In the past few months I’ve been taking vocal lessons, doing songwriting sessions, setting up meetings with mentors (I was signed for two years on an artist development contract with a record label whose main goal was to prepare your HEART so you could be ready to actually minister to people – it rocked my world), working on recordings and music video concepts and following this dream little by little, bit by bit.
