Ryan Cabrera and Cassandra Kubinski talk creative honesty, your unique voice, and arts education for #1MillionHearts
When #1MillionHearts came out last October, we wanted everyone to be able to be part of it. And so many of you have joined us, at live shows, adding the EP to your playlists, sharing the music through your networks! #1MillionHearts is off to an incredible start…and we’re still just getting started 🙂
In addition to our big release bash at the Cutting Room NYC, we hosted a live online concert, featuring some incredible special guests, including multiplatinum singer/songwriter Ryan Cabrera (On the Way Down, True, and many more hit songs).
Ryan dropped some wisdom and inspiration for creative artists, up and comers as well as those who have been in the game for a while. We talked about making your unique impact as a creator / artistic honesty and authenticity/ defining success / Dave Matthews’ influence on Ryan’s music/ arts education.
Are you working on something that could use a creative boost? Feeling a little out of your element, or needing some encouragement to do it YOUR way, instead of the way you think you SHOULD do it? Dive into this short 10 min convo for a lift.
And leave a comment on the video to let us know if anything in our convo resonated with you!
We’ve got concerts coming your way….like an online release event for the final (and biggest) Stardust music video. RSVP link coming soon!
We’ve got videos coming your way, like a dramatic onstage epic for Burn it Down, featuring Dance Moms’ star Hannah Grace Colin (13 of my songs were used on the TV show Dance Moms, so this was a cool collab for me and I’m thrilled to bring it to all of you, not just the Dance Moms fan community!)
And we’re using this music to build support for other artists by donating $10,000 to Arts Education groups as we reach 1 million hearts. Audacious? Yes. Possible? Yes.
I stand for empowering other creators every day in my leadership roles with Women in Music (Global Co-Chair of Membership), and now, the newest honor of serving on the Board of Caffe Lena, an historic venue in Saratoga Springs, NY! I witness firsthand how music can help us heal, change, grow, and accomplish our dreams. I hope you’ll join me on this mission to reach #1MillionHearts and continue the upward spiral of support and empowerment for creators, who have never been more essential to our growth and healing as individuals, and as a connected multicultural world.
Happy, prosperous, successful 2022 (late, but hey, I hope you’ll take some happy, prosperous and successful, no matter what time of year it is)!
