**UPDATE 6-1-18**
Welcome music family! Here’s a quick update: I’m currently more than halfway done with my new album! This is one of the most ambitious records I’ve ever attempted… my goal is to create a sound that feels colorful, cinematic, and even electronic… using only acoustic instruments. It’s taken time and care to craft each sound from scratch, but I believe this process is giving this album a truly personal signature, one that genuinely sounds like “me.” I’m excited to have something that represents my most authentic self to share with the world soon!

If you’re new here, THANK YOU for following the link/instinct that led you to this page! You can learn more about Patreon below, but here’s the good stuff: become a patron now and you get 5 unreleased, finished tracks from my new album immediately (not available to the public), videos of the recording process and stories behind the songs, exclusive concerts/collaborations with artists like Vienna Teng, Amber Rubarth, Elizabeth and the Catapult and Megan Slankard, and videos, songs, and blogs from the studio and the road. If you like what I do and want to support, Patreon is hands-down the best way to enable me to make the most authentic art I can, without having to compromise my creative vision or give up intellectual property.

If you’re already a patron, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!! (yes, I’m yelling). I’m not exaggerating when I say that your support is the whole reason I’ve been able to devote the time and energy towards making this music to the best of my abilities. It’s been such a gift to be able to prioritize my own album this year and I just want you to know how incredibly grateful I am for all of you. More soon!

Much Love and gratitude,
AW

Hi. My name is Alex Wong and I make music. When I’m not writing/producing records with artists like Delta RaeAri HestMegan SlankardMorgxn, and Vienna Teng, I make my own music as a solo artist… and I’m very excited to announce that I am currently recording my second full-length solo album!

Normally, the recording process is mythically isolated… an artist holes up in a studio, house, or underground bunker for weeks/months/years, often doing irreparable damage to personal relationships and personal hygiene, and emerges sometime later with fresh new music and debt. However I’ve always felt that music is more of a conversation between creator and receiver than a monologue, so instead of just dropping the finished record into the world with no other context, I am inviting you to be part of the joy and magic of recording an album through a platform called Patreon.

Patreon is THE BEST way for you to get involved in my creative process and support my ability to sustain myself as an artist. You’ll pledge to donate a small amount every month (as low as $1!) to fuel my ongoing creative output, including my solo work and my collaborations, such as the upcoming duo EP with Jesse Terry and The Paper Raincoat musical. To thank you for your patronage, I’ll give you exclusive access to new songs as they are completed, as well as a window into the creation process for each song: the ideas and moods that inspired it and how that inspiration translated into sounds and music. I’ll share behind-the-scenes and new-song performance videos, answer your questions, and even come play for you live in person. Check out all of the different rewards on the right and feel free to post or send any questions you have.

You can stop contributing at any time, but if you stay with me, you’ll help me meet my goals for this album and help support my future projects. You’ll gain an insider perspective of what it takes to make and release an independent, self-produced album in 2018 and (hopefully) a greater appreciation for this music and music making in general.

I couldn’t be more grateful for your continued support and I’m so excited to share another window into my music and heart. I’d love for you to be part of this conversation!

Much love,
Alex Wong
