About My Work:

I am a choral conductor, classically-trained flutist, arts administrator, and lover of sacred song, ritual, and chant. I work with community groups–congregations, women’s groups, support groups, incarcerated populations, and more–to create joyous and empowering experiences that liberate everyone’s creative voice through singing, chanting, song-leading, body percussion, music improvisation, and/or the creation of meaningful and participatory rituals that engage all the senses.  I frequently work in collaboration with other artists including visual artists, drummers, and dancers.

In 2016, I co-founded SongSquad with my brother Adam Blevins. SongSquad is Indy’s first all-ages, non-auditioned singing ensemble devoted to building community and enlivening public spaces through the power and joy of shared singing.

Pricing Information:

Many of my compositions are available for free on my website. Be in touch if you are interested in commissioning a song.

I’m available to lead group singing for events, fundraisers, corporate gatherings, and more, and can quickly engage large groups in experiences that create shared joy and make your event one to remember.

Individuals interested in classes and workshop will pay fees that vary from $15 for a single session to $300 for a weekend retreat (inclusive of food/lodging).

Congregations interested in choir workshops, public workshops, and/or creation of creative Sunday services (music and sermon) will pay fees ranging from $150-$1,000 depending upon complexity, length, and scope.

THIN AIR, which offers fully improvised performances, generally charges $100/band member (4-5).

Community rituals are most often free.
