What I Believe: In the purest way possible, I have always felt that making things is the reason we exist.

For some people that means making lives, making families, making memories. For me it means making music. So far in my life I have made five full-length albums of original songs, writing, playing and recording all the music myself, and in a very real sense these artworks (if I dare call them that) feel like my children - my bequest to the world and the hereafter.

I would be delighted if you felt willing to support me in continuing to make these things, and the YouTube videos that promote and give context to them. Any pledge will be gratefully received, much valued, and wisely repurposed.

What You Can Expect From Me: I'm always trying to do things in a new and interesting way. Like this (Two Week Album), when I wrote and recorded a new ten-track album from scratch in two weeks, or this (Pedestal), when I made a song almost entirely out of old bottles and food containers I had lying around the house. Or this (Lemmings), this (Separate Our Fingertips), or this (indiVidYoual), when I made super-awesome music videos with my friends on no budget at all. I don't want to be a pop-star. I'm not trying to win anyone's love or admiration. I just really like making something out of nothing, and imagining it resonating with people (maybe long after I'm gone).

Why I Would Love Your Support: There are many reasons why I need to make money out of my work, not least that I have personal living expenses like everyone else (rent, food etc.). I also need to maintain and insure a lot of equipment and space, from cameras to guitars, from recording studio spaces to pop-shields. I am an efficiency-freak and do my best to keep all these expenses as low as possible (in fact it's become a sort of game to me, to see how much I can do with little or no budget), but the more money I make, the more free I am to do more and better creative stuff.

But most of all, I want you to support me because you genuinely want to. I have found great joy over the past few years in surrounding myself with people who really care about the things I make. If you love the stuff I make, and want me to make more stuff like it (or maybe some even better stuff) please come on board with as little or as much as you can afford, and be a part of it!

How It Works: At the moment I'm taking pledges per month - Patreon will charge you (and add VAT (20%) if you're in the UK, so be aware!) on the first of each new month. Very important: never forget you can stop being a patron at any time. That's totally ok. I won't be hurt or upset or anything. It's your money, and it's my job to keep doing good stuff so that you ACTUALLY WANT to support my work :)

All my love <3
George

All patrons pledging $1 or more per month will receive my heartfelt gratitude and access to my 'patrons only' feed (where we can chat about secret stuff, and where I'll be posting the occasional special exclusive picture or video). You'll also be thanked in the sleeve-notes of any new albums I put out for as long as you're a patron.

Thanks so much!
For $5 per month I will send you .mp3 files for all of my five studio albums (assuming you don't already have them). I'll also send you .mp3 files ahead of the release date of any future record as long as you're a patron.
Pledge $10 or more per creation
4 patrons
  • Around £6 - £7 per month in UK money
Thank you for your support!
All the above rewards, plus I'll send a CD album of your choice to you in the mail (any one of my 5 studio albums), with a handwritten thank you note.

Thank you loads and loads :)
All the above rewards, except I'll send you CD copies of all my albums, and any new ones when they come out for as long as you're a patron.
I'll also add you to my list of people I send new albums and songs to during the production process for feedback and ideas. No pressure, of course!
Goals
$70 of $150 per creation
THESE GOALS ARE FOR TOTAL AMOUNT PLEDGED BY ALL PATRONS COMBINED
After I reach this goal I will make a (relatively) big budget (for me) music video, which I will pay an excellent filmmaker to direct, and excellent actors to act in. I may also buy confetti, streamers, cake, and other awesome fun amazing super-trendy props to feature in the video, and pay for proper locations and equipment (something I've never been able to do). Expect something like my 'Lemmings' video, but even bigger and even better.
