HOLA Friends and Fam!
     

Here we are….! The next frontier of crowdfunding, the future of sustainable art, the final exam in asking & giving, whatever you wanna call it….this is it, we’re doin’ it.

Patreon is for people who want to help sustain my ability and freedom to MAKE WHAT I WANT, WHEN I WANT :) Can I get a YES!!! Liberated from commercial interests – by paying me a set amount of money every time I create something, like a music video or an original song, or ART! Just trust me lol!

For an overview of how patreon works in general, they’ve got a great primer HERE to explain how it works. But basically: you give patreon your credit card # (or paypal) and you’re charged $1 (or more, if you choose) at the end every month to support me and my collaborators in our general art-making undertakings. Your support also helps me to pay my general costs-of-doing-business (my studio, my staff, all of life, thanks!).

THE VIDEO UP TOP explains a lot about what I’ve been up to here over the last few years, and how wonderful the effects have been as of this writing, there's over 15,000 amazing youtubers here and I am perpetually in awe and profoundly grateful that people like listening to what I create. I write, produce and release music...it’s just inspires the hell out of me when other people enjoy it too! 

Now, a little backstory!
I've alway played an instrument since I was a little one, but in 2011 I started to create my OWN music, music for me was a therapy during a  time that I felt like a had no direction in my life...I felt really lost, which is scary for a person who always felt like she knew where she was going. I started creating songs in my bedroom, then I had BIG dreams and moved from Virginia to Atlanta just to be around more music creators and create an opportunity! I worked in a prison for several years (shout out to USP Atlanta Folks) and in an office (I still work) all for the passion baby! I made several music videos and here we are now! Now it's 2018 and just got the COURAGE and the GRUMPTION to  SIMPLY ASK the for support from my COMMUNITY...YOU! :)

People are still getting the gist of crowdfunding and patronage. Nowadays people are really getting it: artists need ongoing, reliable support – akin to a salary in the “real world” – if they’re going to make it and be happy, working artists. The internet and micropayments are making that possible.

Patreon is a great platform for organizing this concept, including the huge advantage that patrons on a budget (who can only afford $1-$5 per month) don’t have to worry about getting charged too much, whereas people with a lot to give ($100 and $1,000 patrons) are also welcome to support, without expecting huge amounts of time-sinking rewards which drain energy from the artist.

I value you $1-$5 Patrons as much as the $1000 Patrons it’s like the obama campaign: every dollar counts. It’s also sort of like NPR (that’s american for “National Public Radio”, for you foreigners): even though you donate, nobody expects you to be glued and tuned into the radio 24/7 just because you made an annual donation. You donated BECAUSE YOU WANT EVERYONE ELSE to be able to enjoy the top-quality (and free) content that NPR provides. This is a community. Everybody pitches in what they can, and I try to keep my content as free as possible, so that EVERYBODY, even the people who cannot afford to be part of this patreon, can enjoy my songwriting and my other artistic undertakings.


This patreon is my starting point, my homebase, my workshop where everything happens in transparent realtime, I will be updating this first and for most! So welcome home! Please look out for special downloads of my original music that you totally help me create!!

Essentially, Patreon is a great place to support artists and help them take their project to the next level, the way they'd usually be able to do with funding from a company, or label. If you have the means to, and you feel like getting some lil behind the scenes and free music downloads as a thank you, then that would be lovely and here it is! Thank you 

Watching my videos and listening to my music helps more than you know, and I honestly will never be able to thank you all enough

Mail Time!!!
$25 or more per creation 1 patron
ART-IN-THE-MAIL. This tier will get all of the above (access to all downloads, webchats, etc) AND every few months, as a gesture of my extreme gratitude, you can opt-in to receive a piece of beautiful physical art. The art may be something I draw  with a CD of original music and print in a limited edition, or something I commission from another painter/artist/maker. It may be a watercolor print that was created for a tour or an album, it may be a rolled-up print of a panel from a comic I’m working on. it may be socks. we can fit socks in an envelope. we’re gonna have fun with this one. 
(Signed) ART-IN-THE-MAIL + GUESTLIST
$75 or more per creation 0 patrons
Hey! Same as the ART-IN-THE-MAIL Tier, except you have the option to have your art (or socks) personalized + signed by me; the personalization can be for anyone (including you). It’s a massive undertaking to get things signed/shipped from place to place (especially if i’m in japan and you’re in brazil), so we try not to do too much of this....but i love the idea of being able to do this as a gesture of gratitude for the massive amount of dough you are putting into the system. you will also get access to the guestlist (+1 - note that not every appearance I do has a guestlist, i.e. if I’m playing a festival, but for my own headlining shows, we should be able to accommodate everybody). THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU
OLD-SCHOOL POSTCARD TIER
$100 or more per creation 0 patrons

EVERYTHING IN THE MAIL
$250 or more per creation 0 patrons
HELLO AMAZING PERSON. You will get EVERYTHING the $75 tier gets, plus we will will give you extra guestlist access (if you’d like to bring 2 guests with you to any given official AFP show) and we will invite you to request ANY physical merchandise whenever new items are added to the store (you want a few copies of the new poster? you got it).
