Thank you for your interest in my work!

Why is it important to support our arts and artists? Many individuals and organizations work hard to promote good work in our communities. That said, it’s increasingly challenging for artists like myself to come up with enough funding for our projects as funding opportunities are being cut or when our limited income isn’t enough. Your contribution directly supports things like book publishing, recording studios, copyrights, website maintenance, and any promotion to name a few.

Thank you for giving a dream a voice, and a vision a vehicle. 



100 percent of CONTRIBUTIONS directly support my work.

I: The Rick Eva Music Project. 

Thank you for your support! Your gift will specifically be used to support the recording and production of my new EP “Because Everything Speaks.”  Costs associated with this project are things like musician fees, studio time, mixing and production to final product. Learn more about this project here. 

The Rick Eva Music Project — a new incarnation from Singer-Songwriter Richard Silvia who created the stage name Rick Eva in 1990. The name honors his grandmother who passed away 7 months before he was born. To this day the songwriter continues to feel an inspired connection to her.
‘BECAUSE EVERYTHING SPEAKS’ is an EP of new singer-songwriter material scheduled for release in 2018 — 2019. The EP will feature several new songs produced by acclaimed singer-songwriter and master guitarist Peter Calo. This collection will also feature a spoken word poem set to a meditative backdrop of music co-written by the producer.
In 2001 the song “Ooh the Sky” off the CD 10 Years to Seventh Heaven gained honorable mention from Billboard. The Rick Eve Music Project can be found on CDbaby and Itunes.
