For those who don't know me, My name is Luna Byrd. I am an artist, a singer, and a songwriter from New York, NY; I am currently in the process of pursuing my dreams and reach my fullest potential.
If you know me then you know that Music is the one feeling that I live and breathe from the moment I wake up, to the moment I rest my head at night. There is only one truly universal language and its music; You don't have to understand it in order to feel it. It's through those feelings you get when you hear something that connects with you that grows a passion.
I have been singing ever since I was a child where I was a Broadway performer up until my mother enlisted me into public school. In Middle school, I got my first gig working a Justin Bieber concert as a runner and from there I began climbing the ladder in the music business field. I started doing street team, then being a runner, then a production assistant, social media assistant, then an artist care assistant manager, to then artist care manager and assistant stage manager. All while going to college.
I have to admit that during this long journey I was also battling extensive mental health issues; On the very last day of the very last tour I worked, I had a realization that my purpose was for something greater. My purpose was to be on the stage, not the one behind it making everyone else's dreams but my own come into fruition. It was time to put myself and my happiness first.
I am grateful that I am here, still standing.
My goal is to raise funds towards my artist development and training so that I can continue to develop and train, as well as so that I can have the means to support my career and be able to apply all that I've learned in my artist development classes.
The money raised will go directly to my artist development i.e Vocal classes (both group and private), Private dance lessons, as well as studio time, photoshoots, and video shoots.
What I've Been Up To
For the past few months, I've been focused on creating as much music as possible. With the intention of releasing music toward the end of December as I want to close out the year right! I've been creating music for myself but also writing for other singers, rappers, poets etc. I've also been collaborating with other artists for Sync, and placements.
I've been keeping busy!
If you've made it this far then...

Risks and Challenges
The music business is ever-changing. As an independent songwriter and singer, this Kickstarter will assist my development and growth as an artist.
Did you know that it costs $50k - $80k a year for artist development? That's on the low end.
Since July 2017, I've been personally funding my dreams as an independent artist. This year I've been going harder and harder; I'm 100% ready to make my mark in this world!
This is a pretty penny but the results are absolutely worth it; And would love for you to invest in my dreams and development.
Thanks a ton for your support and encouragement.
Stay tuned, cause the best has yet to come!
