I'm Megan, AKA Cruel Diagonals. I'm a vocalist, music producer, field recordist, and more recently, an audio-visual artist.
Since 2017, I've been releasing albums, prints, and videos as Cruel Diagonals. I am fortunate enough to have fostered a loving, supportive community of fans through my art, and I want to sustainably continue doing so!
Oftentimes, I will run into financial barriers that prevent me from moving forward in my creative development. I've sold my vinyl record collection to buy new music gear, only to then turn around and sell that same music gear in order to buy a new computer when my old one dies!
The model for financial stability for the arts in the United States is, as you are undoubtedly aware, skewed in the direction of media conglomerates and corporations, and are not in favor of the creators who fuel their businesses.
I am therefore turning to this fan club model as a means of remedying this the best I can for myself. I would love to be able to upgrade software, purchase supplies, gear, or other tools of my craft without having to put myself into debt or sell off my belongings to do so.
