Update Re: Recent Cyberbullying Attacks and a Temporary Self-Care Hiatus 

As you already probably know, there's been a slew of cyberbullying attacks on social media platforms and via e-mail notifications I've gotten from my official website here, and the fact that this person, who I've exposed to be emailing from NYC by looking up the IP addresses of each email address that he has been associated with, is a psychopathic creep who's not only attempted and failed to impersonate me, but tried to impersonate a dear friend of mine and then went after my brother. How he even found out…

Cyberbullying Is A Serious Crime! (5/10/2019) 

In recent weeks and months, I've been a target of several people and organizations who's defamed me, made up multiple lies about me and has pushed it too far to the point where my girlfriend, Amy, of 3 years, committed suicide because she was cyberbullied by similar or the same people that has been targeting me as of late, and eventually, it will get to the point where I may end up committing suicide. 

With that said, I'm meeting someone next week to discuss further plans to check into a inpatient trauma…

Studio Update (4/22/2019) 

Hey, it's been a while - sorry that I've been quiet with little to no updates, but as you probably all know, I announced on Facebook and Twitter a while ago that my website was temporarily shut down due to the fact that I didn't have enough money, but thanks to some fans who offered to pitch in and help me reopen the website on a yearly Pro plan with Bandzoogle, I was able to get the money needed from the aforementioned fans (that wishes to remain anonymous) to pay like, almost 200 bucks for a yearly pro…

Bad News - Spotify, Google and Pandora Go to U.S. Appeals Court to Overturn Royalty Increase (Time to Rage Against the Corporate Music Machines - Trust Me; You'll Wanna Read This) 

Well, this is bad news. Guess I'll be pulling my catalogue from those three platforms to rage against the machines that constantly censor us, silence us, fight against us and keep us homeless, hungry, starving, poor and broke all the damn time. 

Spotify, Google and Pandora go to U.S. Appeals Court to Overturn Royalty Increase - Exclusive Article from Variety. 

This basically means that I wouldn't be getting paid the extra money that I need to survive on and live on as a independent musician, nor be able to…

Studio Update (3/7/2019) 

We decided to release the new album here by sending out one song at a time through our digital distribution platform with DistroKid, and once all the songs are released -- we're thinking of releasing at least one song per week or one to two songs per week or once a month until the entire album's list of tracks are officially all out there for everyone to listen to. 

Due to the fact that we failed to reach our fundraising goal, we'll be doing payments one song at a time (thanks to a great deal that the

Studio Update (2/27/2019) 

It's been a rough few months trying to finish this solo album on a extremely tight budget, but we're making it work here as best as we can. Anyways...

Let's talk about what's next for me and my crew from here on out. This is extremely important for you to read, so don't scroll and skip any of the parts here, no matter how bad or limited your attention span is:

  • First, I want to mention that while the recording/songwriting process has been slow due to being on a extremely tight budget and I'm mostly…

We Failed to Reach Our Fundraising Goal 

Thank you all for your support in the last 30 days, but sadly, we failed our fundraiser and didn't reach the goal in time. 

With that being said, we have other plans. Since Kickstarter isn't the ideal place for us to get the word out and that no one has offered to support it any further, we'll be promoting it on GoFundMe for the time being until further notice. We'll also be continuing to finish the solo album, and still working with Eric Reid of TBM Studios

Thank you all, and please follow us to get…

ANNOUNCEMENT! Fans of My Music, GOOD NEWS!!! 

So, after reviewing Patreon's fuck-ups and the mistakes they made, I discovered that recently after joining Ko-Fi as a Ko-Fi Gold member for only $6 a month as a content creator, Ko-Fi will NOT charge me a fee to withdraw money per month and will not charge you a fee to pledge $1 or more a month. 

Let me explain how this will work. See, with Patreon, I'd get charged 25 cents every month just to withdraw what I'm making here from monthly subscriptions (thanks again, y'all, for supporting my music! I love…

Re: Patreon's Shitstorm with Payment Processors and The Profiteers Who Ran This Corporation to the Ground (and What's Next for October Evans fanclub members) 

Now this is a story about how Patreon basically fucked up big time. Okay, before I go any further, I wanted to say I love what Patreon has done for me and everything, but the last few days was just unacceptable. This never happened to me before in the last few months of running my Patreon fanclub platform for y'all, and you know I love all my fans, but putting me and my fans at risk with payment processors, and not to mention the fact that it almost derailed my monthly expenses trying to keep my…

2/2/2019 - We Made It To February (Thank Goth!) and Happy Black History Month (Studio Update) 

Hey, October here again with yet another studio update from yours truly. Let's get down to it, shall we? But first things first - the reason why I said we made it to February (Thank Goth!) in the post title was because the government shutdown was a fucking mess and I had to deal with a lot this past month, plus I was struggling and thought I wouldn't make it through with limited funds to afford to rent my current home in Colorado and to continue doing what I love doing with my life as a…

I Had The Best Day Ever Today - Here's Why (1/25/2019) 

So, the Trump administration has fallen and now the government is reopened for the time being - hip hip hooray! But let's not talk about politics here. Also, for those following me, I'm anti-Trump, anti-corporation, anti-Nazi and anyone who's a corrupt corporate Democrat, plus those who are transphobic - y'all can fuck off. Anyways, moving on...

So here's why I had a really, really GOOD DAY. I hosted a live-streaming #AskMeAnything session and did a demo song presentation of what the new album will be…

A Inspiring and Soul-Baring Journey to Release a New Album Kickstarter Campaign (1/18/2019) 

Hi, I'm a genderqueer/trans woman who's a indie musician/singer-songwriter in a self-titled solo project. I travel all over the world, promoting my music, playing new gigs whenever I can, even though I'm based in Denver. Regardless, I travel in most countries, so yeah, it's a good life. Anyways, moving on. You already know me, especially since I post occasional blog/vlog updates with you all here anyway - LOL. 

This campaign that I launched is attempting to reach a total of $4200 in a matter of 30 days to…

Studio Update + Running a Fan Poll (January 11th, 2019) - Entry #13  

So back at the studio here in Colorado, we got a e-mail from a well-known producer with a studio based in Chicago who offered to do a free mixing/mastering/post-production session on only one of the songs from my upcoming solo album. We all got to sit down and listen to it as clearly as possible, hoping that it was what we thought it'd be.

We can't officially confirm our decision yet (we will soon) but we're still talking about it. That being said, we wanted to give you a shot at listening to the…

Studio Update - Entry #12 (1/10/2019) 

Well, we're off to a good start here in 2019 for our work in the studio. Me and a few studio musicians that I've hired to work on the new solo album has begun to come together and go over the demo material, lyrics and songwriting ideas of how we want the album to turn out and sound like. And I must admit, it feels truly exciting to do something amazing like this!

That being said, I also wanted to share with you some thoughts I had about the album. Given that we'll be working on it all winter and spring…

Entry #9 - Studio Update (11/2/2018) 

The end of 2018 is nearing, just around the corner, and it's been an insane year for me. I mean, holy shit-fuck... I had a few limited open mic gigs, one gig that I had to cancel due to medical illness, been in and out of the studio non-stop recording the new EP and debut solo album, on the road and at home tending to personal life matters outside of my music industry career, and it's just... fucking wow. 

I'm just glad that 2018 is almost over, because come 2019, y'all are going to be seeing some updates…

Hey, everyone, October here. Hope all is well with all of y'all on Labor Day, and if you're working on Labor Day, my condolences. Capitalism fucking sucks here in Amerika, eh? Anyways...

So the surgery to remove the thyroid cancer went well and I have been recovering here for the last few days at a local motel's medical respite program, which is contracted through Champlain Housing Trust in a collaborative partnership with the University of Vermont Medical Center, and I'm doing okay so far. But in other…

Entry #6 (8/15/2018) 

Today, I'm going to be auditioning for the Church Street Marketplace people to see if I qualify for a busking/street performer's permit. If I get this, I will be able to "legally" make money performing on the streets all my original and cover songs on acoustic guitar. Truth be told, I'm a wee bit nervous, but I really hope that I will qualify for such a permit.

See, it's been one of my life's goals as a independent musician to perform on the Church Street Marketplace, and for as long as I could remember…
