Hello kind folk & potential patrons!

If you have made your way to our Patreon page, we already want to express our deep gratitude. We are thrilled that you are considering becoming a patron of our music, and we want to tell ya why and what's in store!  7 years ago, we began our earth/folk/rock band, 5j Barrow, in New York City.  Last year we took a big leap of faith and left our beloved apartment, 5j, for a big blue conversion van, "Mavis Sullivan Staples" (you can find the meaning of her name in our "patron-only" feed!).  We jumped into our collective dream of touring & growing with our music and traveled all over North America for a year non-stop.  This past year we challenged ourselves with playing shows almost every night for a year straight, we traveled to inspiring places we had never been, we released a dozen new tracks, we released our first professional music video (look up "Sarah Brown / 5j Barrow on YouTube!), and built, created and shared much more content (videos, blogs about our travels, and in-depth writing about our lyrics all right here on Patreon).

Although we've accomplished so much in this last year, we still have many mountains to climb.  Along with these big milestones comes the cost of chasing our dream including bringing our incredible bassist and drummer (Drew and Gerard) on tour with us as soon as financially possible, tapping into the management and marketing expertise of people who can help us cast our net wider, paying for gas to keep us touring, equipment to continue producing high quality content, and most importantly staying focused on creating music (a big focus for 2019). Any added support from our beloved patrons can make a huge difference in what we are able to accomplish. Whatever you are able to contribute, whether it is $1/month to $200/month will return back to you with so much love and good karma and many different tokens of gratitude!   Examples include: gaining access to our patron-only feed, personal entries of our experiences of life on the road, stories behind our lyrics and what inspires us to write, 1st listens & downloads to our new tunes, your very own 5j Barrow house concert, and the list goes on!
 
Whether or not you are able to become a patron, we remain grateful to people who truly want to listen & connect through our music. Musicians and artists throughout history have counted on patrons to give them the ongoing gift of support, encouragement, and strength to endure the rocky lifestyle of being an artist.  If at anytime your patronage becomes difficult for you, we will certainly understand if you need to end your monthly commitment. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and your consideration in going on this journey with us.

Love always, 5j Barrow (Eryn, Jason, Drew & Gerard)
