· The Community Urban Soul Project (C.U.S.P.) began in 2004. CUSP aims to raise both awareness and funds for specific community issues and needs, and build a stronger artist community and community in general by showcasing musicians of many genres. The members are creative folks; teachers, actors, counselors, doctors, etc, who are involved in community outreach on many levels. These groups work together to share music as a tool to build community.

Digital Bliss Productions was established in 2004 to promote women electronic music producers, vocalists, instrumentalists and engineers as well as women who combine media and disciplines to create their own unique voice in the digital realm. Digital Bliss seeks to connect groups in the wildly varied Electronic music scene to create more community and cross-pollination in the Bay Area and subsequently on a Global Scale. Through performances, education, touring, compilation releases and blogging we share our new voices and music.
