My name is Benjamin Akira Tallamy - I'm a UK-based artist with a background in film, music and literature.

I've been making music for about fifteen years and grew up playing with cameras, telling stories and acting.  I have no formal education, so my influences are pretty diverse but I have a penchant for the bizarre and prefer things that haunt the shadows of mainstream culture.

Here is an example of my work:



So what is Patreon?

Well, in economically impoverished times, for those who have always been economically impoverished, it is a way for people to support creative people they are fond of - allowing them the artistic freedom to produce new work.

If you like what I do enough to want to see it continue then you can make a monthly donation and in reward get unique perks - as a result, I'll be able to keep the wolf from the door and focus on fresh projects, many of which will be shared here first to my patrons.

I have always been self-supported and so far never monetarily rich.  A lot of my work is done almost entirely in-house, even the mundane tech-stuff. With a viable revenue stream, a lot of the more mundane jobs could outsourced, giving me more time to write, record and create.

So what will I do?

Commercial success has never been a driving force in my life but I have always tried to create work which is considered and genuine.  By becoming my patron, not only will you give me the freedom to focus on my work, you'll also be encouraging me to refine and explore my craft - trying, as always, to do something unique and unusual.

With support, you will receive my thanks and acknowledgement, get opportunities to talk with me and suggest/discuss my work - as well as receive exclusive updates, previews, demos and unreleased material.

Either way, thank you for taking the time to stop by and even if you can't pledge, I hope you enjoy some of the things I create.

Please spread the word.

If you're crazy enough to become a $1000 patron, you'll get all of the above and:

I will send you signed copies of any new works when they come out for free along with a personally written letter for as long as you're a patron.

I will skype/hangouts with you whenever I'm working on anything new and discuss the project.

If it is possible for us to meet, I will buy you coffee/drinks one day and we can talk about anything you like - my work, the weather or even abstract concepts such as good and evil.

Goals

If I hit this goal, I will record a cover of a song voted for by my Patrons and donate all profit to a charity of their choosing.
