In her very essence, Erica is a medley of brains, beauty and talent. Pledging support to Erica is about more than releasing music. It’s an investment in an artist with the vision and resolve to leave a lasting impact in this world.

Dear Friend,

As an artist, I serve as an ambassador of empowerment for those wishing to break discouraging cycles and step into the joy-filled versions of life we all deserve. Having turned away from a more lucrative outfit of success, I understand the challenge of defining life on your own terms— of rising above noise, residual trauma, and fear in order to reframe paradigms and intentionally choose your own path. It is because of these circuitous detours on my journey, not in spite of them, I am positioned with a privilege to bring about the kind of positive change only someone with my personal journey can uniquely do.

MISSION

To champion purpose-centered wellness, creative living, and non-traditional education models

a46de716-ebda-4d54-97eb-a8e0c6eb9ab5.JPG

VISION

An education center and network designed to inspire, embolden and empower

 

My ultimate dream is to leverage my performance passion to become a positive disruptor in the education space. While singing is my foremost love, championing education that gets to the core of what makes individuals shine brightest is my mission.  Drawing on my cumulative experience as student, teacher, mentor, and facilitator, I plan to use my success as a musician to establish an educational center and network based in holistic ideals for professional prosperity. As we continue to evolve into a more conscious and aware society, it will be imperative that our education models keep up.

As a precursor to realizing this dream, I am looking for support in my own becoming—  of inhabiting the best version of myself so I can effectively serve others. To learn more on my projects, the KICKSTARTER campaign in support of my debut EP album, and how you can get involved, please continue reading. I eagerly invite your thoughts, comments, and questions. Individually, we hold tremendous power, but together, we can go far.

With love,                                             

 
 

Phase One:

EP Recording

In 2018, I enrolled at the contemporary/pop music school BIMM London, known for it’s roster of Grammy Award-nominated alumni. My time at BIMM resulted in a number of proud musical firsts and at the referral of a member of faculty, I was invited to continue developing my artistry at a leading studio collective in North London (SAFO Music Group). This year, I will begin recording my first EP, The Divine Feminine, Vol I.—an exposé of lush vocals and sensual harmony—with the support of the studio’s production and strategic marketing teams.

 

The 2020 year will be a breakthrough year in my artist development. Here's what you can expect from me in the coming months.

SAFO Music Group

EP Recording and Marketing

Based in Crouch Hill, London, SAFO Music Group is the UK's leading artist incubator and studio collective. SAFO's team has worked with the likes of Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, One Direction, The 1975, Ella Eyre and many more. SAFO's commitment to developing the whole artist is unmatched and I am beyond excited to explore my creative depths with the support of SAFO.

SAFO is founded and directed by Platinum-selling industry veteran Laurence Hobbs.

Future Phases:

Professional Musicianship and Platform Building for Education

Putting purpose to my varied experiences is the biggest driving force in my artist journey. Here in Future Phases you'll find more on the long-term vision for marrying my performance passion with service and education. With your support, The Divine Feminine Vol I. will not only represent my artist debut but the beginning of a career dedicated to spreading wellness and empowerment.  

The Education Center

Through my experience as both student and teacher, I've long witnessed the deleterious impact that inflexible teaching models and an inattention on wellness have on young and old generations. In response to this plight, I aspire to build a school

  • a school exemplifying that those best-prepared to serve their communities are conscious individuals who, through practiced self-awareness and personal fulfillment, have first best-served themselves;

  • a school that permits individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds an education steeped in  the kind of imaginative creativity and expression typically reserved for those of great financial means;

  • a school that prepares learners to navigate traditional institutions with a nourished and healthy sense of self

  • a school where compassion leads and educator wellbeing is zealously prioritized in order to influence a generation of healthy, happy connected humans.

The Network

Access to opportunity is just one of many barriers preventing individuals from igniting their deepest potential. Ingrained in my commitment to service is one that can stretch to improve as many lives as possible. Adapting programs from the education center for local communities through sister academics and programs is how this aim is achieved.

This vision is undoubtedly a years-long labor-intensive endeavor, the success of which depends on structural planning , curricular design and implementation, financing and so much more. For those unfazed by the time and risk demanded by a large undertaking, I hope this vignette of the main motivation in my artist journey encourages you to get involved in bringing my EP project to life.

Movement plays a large role in my creative process and my exploration of self and body that I experience at Studio 68 greatly influences my music.

Aquarius Rising

Wellness Storytelling

In a dedicated corner of EricaSenat.com is Aquarius Rising, my personal blog. Through this outlet, I share my latest adventures, endeavors and reflections on everything from purposeful living and wellness to 'influence' and love languages. Consider it a mixed bag of professional updates and spiritual musings, held together with a heavy dose of authenticity

Volunteering with KAS Youth Hub

The Bigger Picture

Over the years, I've partnered with community organizations close to my heart including Hour Children (as an ‘Hour Friend’ to children with incarcerated parents), Sanctuary for Families’ Center for Battered Women’s Legal Services (offering support to victims of intimate partner violence), and Sing For Hope (serving as a project leader and artist partner bringing music into hospitals and in-patient facilities). Most recently, I've continued my commitment to service as an expert mentor to pre-law students from underrepresented communities. At KAS Youth Hub, I work as an on-site coordinator for KAS's series of ten-day ERASMUS+ Youth Exchange programs held in Southern England. I also oversee KAS's creative activity workshops in the local Croydon community.
