Project Description

Hi! I am KAT HIL, an independent artist & songwriter living in Nashville, TN. I’m making my very first, 5 song EP & I’d love for you to be part of it! 

I’ve found myself in some dark places, and truly, making music has been my light. Being an artist has been my dream since I was a little kid, and I am so grateful for this opportunity to be vulnerable & share the songs that have been on my heart.

I am an independent musician, which means that I fund all of my own projects 100% out of my own pocket. I typically do this through paid performance opportunities, teaching paint classes, working multiple jobs...but this year, the world obviously had different plans. 

This is where YOU come in :)

My goal is to raise a minimum of $7,500 to fund my debut EP.  Not only will this campaign help fund my dream, it will also create 10 jobs for other independent artists, producers, small businesses, musicians, mixing & mastering engineers, logo designers, and will help cover marketing & promotional material, as well as distribution costs.

When you make a contribution, you’ll receive some cool rewards such as custom artwork, limited edition merch, your very own houseplant in a hand painted pot, & more!

It takes a team to make a record & every contribution helps! I am so excited for these songs to hit your ears. Thank you for your support & I can’t wait to make this record with you!

PRIVATE PAINT & SIP PARTY

PAINT YOUR OWN MASTERPIECE!

Don't worry, I'll walk you through it (or the liquid courage will) :)

You and up to three guests will receive a private, guided painting session which will include a bottled beverage, canvases, easels, paint brushes, aprons, set up, instruction, and clean up! NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! 

Painting is something I truly enjoy so much, and is a great way for me to unwind the brain and relax.

CHOOSE FROM THE FOLLOWING EXPERIENCES-

Option #1: Everyone Follows Along - Your party will receive step-by-step instruction and everyone paints on their own canvas.

Option #2: Complementary Paintings - Two people pair up to paint two separate images that work together and complement each other (great for that special double date)

Option #3: Working Together as a Group - This is a full-out collaboration where your guests create several pieces that can be hung on the wall to form a mural (this idea works especially well for a bridal/baby shower or corporate group) where the mural is hung in the home, office, or nursery.
