We’ve so much to learn and it’s our turn to give back to our planet.
It’s time to see that reality is manifest by every creature on it.
If we haven't met yet, I'm Kari, sole proprietor of Celestial Blue Music, native desert rat, ocean-obsessed dive master, Rocky Mountain camping enthusiast, animal lover, cat trainer, dog walker, former professional civil engineer, piano/guitar/ukulele player, constant singer, wildlife advocate, tree hugger, and Lorax of folkrock.
This patreon page is where we can connect in our own Celestial Blue bubble and I can send you everything I make directly as soon as it's ready and before anyone else gets it.
I give credit to my patrons on my videos and song releases. Because I couldn't do it without you. Or even if I did, it wouldn't be as fun. Not nearly as rewarding.
Thank you for being here.
My musical mission is to remind us that we are all connected to everything and have a responsibility to look after our own wellbeing as well as the environment that surrounds and supports us.
- I release a new video monthly and often weekly. Some are live footage, some are backyard cover songs, some are brand new wine-soaked explorations of songs so new they don't even have names yet.
- Each month, my goal is to release a new song, including downloads, lyrics, and audio streaming. As I get more complex in my recordings, this process can be quite a bit slower. But I'm going for professional releases that can make it in the digital marketplace, so...those just take longer. Because I have to get free help with no schedule, or professional help which costs significant money.
- Patrons get everything I make first, plus behind-the-scenes, video logs sharing the drama of the journey, the nitty gritty of what it really takes to do this work and make these things, hikes with my dog to clear my brain.
- surprise extra stuff that I may not even know about yet! Like the physical mail out of the brand new very first Celestial Blue Music merchandise!
- Livestreaming shows with interactive chats on concertwindow.com
The more Patreon grows, the more I can create and give back to the patrons. Patreon helps me cover all kinds of essentials, including:
- copyrights and registration fees, digital distribution fees, website/domain hosting
- guitar strings, piano tunings, repairs on ukuleles that accidentally dropped out of their straps and smashed to the floor, all this stuff adds up
- gear, like better microphones, loopers, effects, microphone stands, monitors, the ultimate guitar...there is an evolving wish list
- hiring other musicians, producers, studio time (THIS IS SUPER HUGELY EXPENSIVE BUT ALSO YIELDS AMAZING RESULTS FOR THE MUSIC); I want to be able to pay drummers, bass players, producers, mixing engineers, and mastering engineers to get the best final product possible
- office supplies (including emergency printer replacements...)
- a better camera, mobile microphones, etc. for better video, webcam for better live streams
You don't have to contribute much, this is a platform where the SIZE of our COMMUNITY, not just the size of your pledge is what empowers the creative budget. A dollar a month really makes a difference! Where else can you say that?
You can be as involved as you like, or a silent supporter. I respect both avenues.
You can cancel or adjust your pledge amount for any reason at any time.
Everything is shown in US dollars on the website, but you may use any currency and it will be automatically converted.
Again, if you can't financially contribute right now, there are HUGE ways to help me for free! Subscribing to my YouTube channel, sharing on Twitter or Facebook, liking my Facebook page, joining me for a show on Concert Window, listening to my music on Bandcamp and joining my email list are all MAJOR supports to me that help me keep going!
If you want to make a single donation - you can do that too via PayPal or at http://www.CelestialBlueMusic.com
Thank you for being on this adventure with me. ~Kari
