Hello everyone and welcome to my Patreon! My name is Calvin Thomas and I am a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Maryland. I also produce and arrange music as well.

When I first started livestreaming almost 2 years ago, I didn't know the world that I had tapped into as well as how far my reach could be. And I've met so many people not just on Periscope but in person as well. And I never thought I would do anything like that, AT ALL. 
When I do my broadcasts and I sing to all of my returning fans and friends, I come across moments where people say awesome things about my music and also say that it helped them get through the day. Or even, that it helped them get through dark days. And that really puts things in perspective for me. It made me say to myself, "People REALLY believe in what I do. And, those same people really want to get behind anything that I do." This is one of the main reasons I showed up here.

A handful of musicians I follow have been on Patreon for quite some time and the community they talk to and live for are behind them 100%. And now it's my turn to do the same for the community that supports me. As I move forward in my journey, I want to take them with me. 

Patreon is a great way to really connect with the awesome people who believe in your passion and will stand by you from beginning to end. You can support my content for as little as $1 a month and you get awesome rewards! At the same time, you can help me develop better content CONSISTENTLY. All of your funds are used for a variety of things, which include things like making high-quality singles and/or albums, getting better instruments, better music gear, video equipment (like lighting gear, a new PC, and/or a high-resolution camera), and studio equipment.  It also helps me pay my bills. 

You all challenge me. You all want me to shoot for greater things. And most importantly, you all want me to live the best that I can. Am I fortunate to have met all of you awesome people? I wanna say YES. Absolutely. 

We've got goals, we've got rewards, we've got content made only for you all. SO...let's get the ball rolling. 


Thank you all very much for your support and I can't wait to see what the future holds!
