The Project

Sanctuary is a beautiful sonic bridge created to serve the collective path of transformation. In the making of this album, Rebecca has reached out to thought leaders, activists, social justice organizations and those most impacted in compromised disempowered situations to guide her. She has facilitated workshops, done many interviews and co-written several of the tracks. The depth and breadth of this process is important to Rebecca, to ensure that she is fully representing the people who are living at the center of these challenges and allowing their voices to be heard through her writing.

the musical recording

The musical recording is an album of songs crafted in collaboration with international leaders of social change, justice organizations, and those most impacted.

A sonic bath of resonance, the album is an offering of refuge both soothing and evoking of deep reflection. A poetic key, the album opens doors of perception to help us see beyond right and wrong, inside and outside.

Rebecca’s own life experiences overlap with many of the issues covered in the songs. She has written a number of songs that touch directly on her personal journey with poverty, homelessness, gender inequality and addiction. Discovering her true voice, and in finding the courage to reach for the stars with this album, she brings the full breadth of her talent to shine a light for all.

There is an extraordinary team on this project. Producer, Tom Wassinger, has won multiple awards, including three Grammys for his work with Mary Youngblood and others. Our creative partners include: Gold and Platinum hit songwriter Sally Barris, Spirit of Folk winner Dana Cooper and Grammy nominated artist Nick Forster. The launch of the album is set for Spring 2020. Planning for the national tour is presently in progress.

the outreach campaign

The outreach campaign begins with offering “Open Your Voice” workshops to communities that are often overlooked or compromised. The workshops are allied with effective, non-profit, problem-solving organizations, and through deep listening and learning, the process helps close the gap of separation.

In the making of this album, she has reached out to thought leaders, activists, social justice organizations and those they serve to guide in the writing process. She did this through leading workshops, engaging in personal conversations and interviews, touring facilities, and co-writing with leaders of organizations and those they serve. This process is important to Rebecca, to ensure she is fully representing the people who are living at the center of these challenges and allowing their voices to be heard through her writing. She has chosen organizations that have a clear commitment and extended track record of positive impact within the communities they serve.

The songs are written in the participant’s voices to bring the voice of the voiceless to the mainstream. Through the authenticity and depth of these voices audiences are moved to actionable solutions to create real change.

Rebecca has chosen organizations that have a clear commitment and extended track record of positive impact within the communities they serve:

  • Homelessness: Boulder Homeless Shelter
  • Prisons: Colorado Corrections and ARI (Authentic Relating International)
  • New Thought: NYT Bestselling Author Katie Hendricks (Foundation of Conscious Living)
  • Spiritual Life: Zen Master Roshi Reta Lawler
  • Refugees: IRC International Rescue Committee (Serving Youth Asylum Seekers)
  • Nature conservation: National Marine Sanctuary Foundation
  • Women’s Empowerment: Suzy Batiz, CEO Poo-Pourri & Supernatural, Forbes List of America’s Richest Self-Made Women

With an international marketing and networking scope, the campaign covers press, social media, radio, and film. The campaign fully attends to the songs and their purpose of transformation by connecting them to the world. The campaign will also assure the promotional requirements and high visibility of excellence of a Grammy-caliber album.

The campaign includes an agency that has the reach to broadcast the songs and the performances to a world-wide audience. A masterful support team drives Sanctuary's message to the global stage, with the focus and placement that allows the songs to best serve their purpose of healing and awakening.
