I'm excited to announce that I've designed some official merchandise!
These times are tough, and I understand that many of us are not in a position to be spending money beyond essentials right now. That being said, if anyone is interested in supporting me in a new way, please consider buying a Cait Nishimura shirt! Click HERE to take a look!
Here is the message I wrote about my "campaign":
I am one of the lucky ones. I have curated my life to revolve around what I am most passionate about; I am fortunate enough to make a living creating music for others to play. Without a doubt, the most rewarding part of my job as a composer is having the opportunity to connect with the musicians who bring my ideas to life. Now that the world is navigating a situation that makes collaborative music-making difficult, those of us who are full-time artists have to be creative in new ways. For me, this includes selling these shirts.
Members of the concert band community will know that the covers of my scores feature original nature photography along with my signature three-trees logo at the bottom. Friends will know that I initially designed this logo as my first tattoo, and that for me, trees are synonymous with growth and resilience. My hope is that wearing one of these shirts might help to remind us of our potential for growth, and our resilience despite the circumstances.
Thank you for your ongoing support through these strange and uncertain times. Any proceeds from sales of these items will help me continue to create meaningful music to share with the world when we find a new normal. Stay safe & keep chasing sunlight.
