What I Hope to Do Next....
Now that I've finished the first album of my 10th Anniversary
DOUBLE ALBUM RELEASE CHALLENGE / CELEBRATION...
"Love Wings" (scroll down for audio samples player) :
Go ahead and continue working on and releasing the SECOND album,
"Chorus of Creation"[Messages for the Heart from the Heart of Nature"],
and do so at a higher level of production (with better equipment and collaboration) with better funding (see fundraising assistance opportunity
to the left).
Once that's done, I hope to focus on releasing my SEVENTH volume of
"Poetic Bliss", "Love's Calling", hopefully, by this summer...and be able
to publish "HARD copies" of it...along with re-publishing 2 of the first
6 volumes this year...and at least 2 more next year ("HARD Copy"
Publishing always costs quite a bit more than e-Book versions.)
*Annnnnd... just as importantly, I'd really like to travel more
than ever this year...doing so more freely...as the funds are
provided ...and joy-fully promote BOTH of my 10th Anniversary
DOUBLE ALBUM RELEASE Celebration albums--AND the
SEVENTH volume of "Poetic Bliss"!
Feel free to read through...

"Wow Steven, that was a wonderful lift! What a fabulous song, thank you so much for the link! and yes, "the Sun still Shines", and after listening to your song all my winter blues just faded away! Please feel free to use any of my words that I've shared with you.. that would be such an absolute pleasure.
"As always your music, your light-hearted-ness, your uplifting-ness (Is there such a word? haha) touches me and others, and sometimes even without knowing how or why, hearts lighten, and souls remember who they really are..Bless you... love, Maggie"
-- Maggie of the amazing "777LoveisAll" YouTube Channel
"I've been so very blessed with so much encouraging feedback from
so many beautiful people... Here are just a few heartfelt, gracious words from some very dear fans & supporters!
"Thank you for the link to your song.. the words just seem to flow through you, effortlessly, joyfully, lovingly, truthfully and touchingly...straight to our core..Blessings to you and your music partner..and in all that you do..peace and love, Maggie"

Studio & Audio / Video Upgrades
Collaboration Travel & Reimbursement
Production & Reproduction Upgrades
Travel & Promotion Expenses
JOY-STREAM OF THE MONTH
How You Can Make a Difference....
Upgrading Home Studio Equipment &
Acquiring a portable "amp" system.
Acquiring video equipment...for beginning to make
properly-produced "live" music & other performance
videos for YouTube--and beyond!
Inviting Collaboration (for which I'll
be able to at least modestly reimburse other musicians )
so I can...
Produce this next album at a whole 'nother level of
quality of sound...both in performance and in
recording! (as pleased as I am with the album
just finished, I know it could be improved quite
substantially...by some modest improvements,
and plan to do so--with your help!)
The target amount for the funding...
($6000 total--a fraction of what most musicians
require to take care of expenses for an album...
because of 100's of $ per hour of "pro" studio time
with studio musicians and / or collaboration travel
expenses and such. Of course, I'd love to do that
sometime as well, but right now we're reaching for
a good solid noticeable improvement...with equally
solid funding. It's amazing what can be done--even
with medium improvements, and do so look forward
to showing what all I was able to do in this next album
and following up with my supporters here and in
in my "inner circle" emails.)
I plan to use the rest of the funding for basic travel
expenses (mostly fuel, some lodging) to promote the
two albums and the new volume of "poetic bliss" I
mentioned above....and see how far I can beam
around what I "just know" I'm here to beam!
Annnnd... thanks to your help...I have a feeling
WE CAN DO THIS!
And even though the amount is smaller, I feel that
this is all I need to "get me going" and, hopefully,
with sales and bookings picking up as I go, it will
be enough to keep me going from there.
SPECIFICALLY? HOW CAN YOU HELP?
* * *
SO many ways! All of your "votes" count!
Cash funding is essential, of course, but...
SUBSCRIBING TO, LIKING, SHARING,
COMMENTING on my YOU TUBE Channel.
EVERY EMAIL LIST SIGN-UP helps! Of course,
EVERY PURCHASE counts. EVERY BOOKING
counts--"big". For "Intuitive Consulting", for "Sound
Energy Renewal "sessions, for "Home Concerts" and other
small venues. [I love the intimacy and "connection" of
creating some "magic" in the moment with smaller groups!]
And all of those BLESSED-WISHES, THOUGHTS,
and PRAYERS count! Every one! Thank you so much
for whatever way you may choose to lift these wings that
are so very ready to fly...and beam "de-Light" around!
Just so you know...
No less than HALF of the audio
tracks from the above album may
be listened to AT FULL LENGTH...
at different locations throughout
this site. It's my way of sharing little
"nuggets" here and there that I hope
will "de-Light" someone...
"Steven D LightSpring is an inspiring man of emotional integrity with an uplifting wit and keen eye for seeing the best in every person. His poetry, songs and writing reflect a loving insight into what is best in all of us and bring us to a place within that is more expansive than before. He is an adept communicator and facilitator. I highly recommend him."
-- River K. Benson, Owner, Producer at JoyWorks, LLC
"If Light is
in your heart,
You will find
your way home."
"I was moved to my core, listening to Steven just reading a poem he had written, and strumming his guitar. I was literally vibrating in my chair with emotion, and felt like crying out with joy, but did not even want to breath or make a sound or take my eyes off of him lest I miss one note or word. Even now as I sit here typing this review and remembering how amazing that experience was, I am overcome with ecstasy and am finding it hard to type. The song he sang next maintained that high, and I expected that to be the end, but a little later an offering was collected, and unbeknownst to me, the minister had arranged for Steven to also sing a song he had written about giving, which was so appropriate and inspiring. I am looking forward to hiring Steven for other special worship occasions. The minister was so thankful I had found him, and has already booked him for another worship service."

"Flight Master Steven, Such a whimsical, encouraging song!
Love your creativity! Soar SteVen, soar!"

"If you have not been blessed by S t e V e n ‘ s music yet, your soul is in for a treat.
His creativity, the timbre of his deep voice and the soulful loving energy he puts into
each piece is an honor to witness. Sometimes the sound of his voice melts me to my
core and even has triggered deep tears of gratitude. At times, his musical genius let’s
me imagine what heaven must sound like.
A Wise man once said “to know Steven, is to know love”, I agree 100%. Everything that
Steven does is with the intention of bringing more love to the planet and each person
that he connects with.
His intuitive and healing abilities comes through in his music. Now, if you listen very
carefully you will-sometimes also glimpse this master punster has a joyful, intelligent,
playful sense of humor.
If you desire to have more love in your life and to love yourself more...
If you need your chakras tuned or any healing tones, if you just want to bliss out on
high vibration tones and blessings, you have arrived!
Listen and receive the gifts that await you.

"I'm 'beyond words' grateful for Kelly's most heartfelt endorsement.
When I mentioned to her that some might feel that her "rave" was
a bit "over the top", she seemed surprised. She then assured me
of what I already knew...that she merely spoke her deepest truth,
and there's nothing "over the top" about that. More like, "from the
bottom"! ...of her dear heart which I know to be a beautiful place,
and I'm deeply honored that she has granted her most sincere
blessings in this way.
"She even insisted that she read the above words for me and provide
it in audio format so anyone could hear the depth of meaning she put
in her words. I was not able to upload that here, due to some "tech"
issues, but you can hear her loud and clear in the "fan rave" section
of a promotional video featuring her most gracious words." I'll go
ahead and share that here for those of you who are interested..."
(You'll need to go to the 6:00 mark in the video...for her less than
2 min. audio "rave". It's probably not so special to anyone else, but
I'm pretty sure you can see why this meant a lot to me!)
