  • I’m trying to make a video for this song I wrote called “Lonely Girls”. Any lonely girls out there want to send me short videos of you or your friends doing lonely things? I’d like to splice them together for the video. Message me if so.

    Three years into writing hundreds of poems and songs for other people, and asking for nothing in return, I’ve decided to ask for something back. I’m at a financial crossroads in my personal life. If I’m going to keep making music, it has to start bringing in income. I hate this, but it’s just true. I’m not going to ask anyone to buy any of my music; but if you would stream my songs on Spotify (even if you just have them playing on repeat when you aren’t in the room), I’ll earn some money. Enough to help my next big musical project and keep my dream alive—my dream of writing for other people. People like all of you. I promise to be eternally grateful, but I also promise this: If you send me a message and tell me you’ve been streaming my songs—and you tell me who you’ve shared them with and how (reblog, Facebook, etc.)—I promise to write something for you. Tell me a story from your life, tell me about yourself, and I will burn a small sliver of my heart as fuel to create for you. I promise. I’m asking you fans out there to be my musical champions, but I don’t expect you to do it for nothing. Thanks for considering. I look forward to your messages coming in. Much, much love. — Kavalier Calm, The People’s Bard

    I was told to be brave enough to ask for help from my fans, so here goes: please stream this EP “For Ellise” on Spotify, and please share it with your friends. I earn pennies per stream, and it helps keep my project—of writing for you all—afloat. After you/they listen, message me your/their thoughts, and in return I’ll write something just for you. The feedback will help me write the next one. Fair trade? Thanks, lovelies. I’m eternally grateful for your support. Oh, and you can download this EP for free here.

    Hey friends, I implore you to stream my songs on Spotify. Listen on repeat. Have them playing on your computer even if you aren’t in the room. I only make a fraction of a penny per play, but any little bit helps fund my project so I can keep writing songs for you all—for free. Share what you hear with your friends if you like it. Much love. — KC

    I’m writing a song about feeling like I’m not deserving of love. I’m brutally honest and arrogant, and it makes me hard to be with. I’d like to put other people’s reasons in the lyrics, too. So, why do you feel like you don’t deserve love?

    YouTube convinced me to make a “channel trailer”. I recorded it in one take. Did it make sense? Do you get that I love you weird strangers for inspiring me? Do you get that I want you to keep sending in requests? Forever?

    I was exploring ways to improve exposure for my music (because one of my 2014 resolutions is to actually make money from this), and I just read that MySpace is the best social media site for musicians. I thought that site died when I was in middle school. Do you guys really listen to musicians on MySpace?
