Milestone Goals
Diesel Tunes Episodes
$75 per per song
I've mentioned this before but, I have three more videos with footage from the road and comedic bits for the Diesel Fumes series in rough cut form that do need some editing help. $75 milestone will get these videos back into production. Every bit helps us get closer to the next day-in-the-life of Terry the Trucker, thank you!!!
More Shows
$150 per per song
About once per week I have a gig, open mic or a live radio interview with or without the rest of the band. $150 milestone will guarantee we keep a busy schedule; I can keep gas in my car and strings on my guitar. Thank you!
Better Video
$250 per per song
$250 milestone improves the quality of our posts. Your donations will get us some help with video shooting and editing. After all we are musicians who write, record and rehearse every day. More professional video will help us get views and fans. Thank you!


I am a songwriter and sometimes videographer. I'm grateful for the Patreon ecosystem for independents!

Ian Patrick Gentles is Supporting

Hello, my name is Ian and I'm not just a truck driver, I'm a life-long songwriter and I want to continue to share my music with the world. I also have a band called Working Class Hussys. I'm grateful for this service at Patreon because I have so much music to share with you. Some of what I post will be songs we play with the band and some will be just me and my guitar. I pre-record my songs in my studio before the band gets to play them and people don't usually get to hear these "demos." Not all of the songs I write are for the band to play so this Patreon website is great for sharing all the songs I have to share. That is, if you want to hear them.

The video above on this page is from a recent album called Diesel Tunes from July of 2014. I have three more episodes in rough cut form that will need some editing help. It's my hope to complete these and post them here for you to enjoy. And here is an acoustic version of a song I wrote for my biggest patron, my wife.

So, how does this work and what is Patreon?
It's micro-crowd-funding but not just one big project. It's for people like me that are creating something small, like a song and doing it frequently. You will be a Patron of my ongoing work. Think of it as a tip for every release I post. Patreon has made it easy for you to set a monthly limit of how much you will pay if I happen to go on a songwriting binge one month. As I write this I believe I will be posting about a song a week. So you can figure what you are willing to pledge per song. It should be whatever you are comfortable with --like $1 or $3 per song or a whole lot more if it feels right. Anything you pledge is greatly appreciated and helps me achieve my goals as an independent musician.

Is that it?
No, actually. I have some extra stuff for Patreons like you who give to the cause. I am doing some private google hangout shows and offering everlasting gratitude on the credits of my videos and even some physical CDs for big spenders. More details are below.
