About Jim Scott

Thank you for visiting my page.

I’ve been a musician pretty much all my life, evolving my own personal expression as the years go on. It’s a great blessing to make a living performing and marketing my own music. It’s also a lot of work - a constant hustle to keep up the momentum of travel - running a business and being present for my audience. I won’t plead poverty, I’ve been fortunate to be an artist, but the treadmill of the business is not necessarily conducive to creativity.

And I also know this: I really do need my friends who believe in me. It feels wonderful to get an email or letter thanking me for the song that has meant a great deal to someone – or when I make a new friend with my Earth and Spirit Songbook. (“Where has this been? I’ve needed this!”)

So, I’m turning to you, my friends, to be involved with this creative process. I’m impressed with the Patreon model, that is allowing many of my colleagues to spend more of their lives in the creative mode. The way it works, people become patrons to help support the artist staying more focused on the work. I like to think that I’m a pretty prolific creator. There’s never enough time – a valid element in the creative process – so we need to work fast.

The financial side of my work could stand to be more sustainable. Halting the creative machinery to go out and tour for enough money to come back and pick up where you left off is a distracting and time-consuming way to go. I wonder what it would be like to just get going on a project and finish it? What a luxury! My new album has taken at least a year longer than it might have. And the next one is waiting.

So I would like to gather friends into an inner circle of supporters who want to see more of what I’m doing, where I would share a lot more of my creations with you. As a subscriber you would hear my music first and get regular installments of songs – recordings and also written music - that I’m doing along with poetry and other writing I produce.

I’ve been putting some thought into a menu of various levels of participation. I have many songs yet to be released and many projects in the process of completion. These all take time. 
It’s my dream to immerse myself in creativity with a bit less of the traveling, even when we get the vaccine. I hope you’ll help me to get on a roll and accomplish all the stuff that’s on hold, in my mind or on the computer, or on paper somewhere. What I’d like to do for you in return is offer some musical support for your journey, whether it’s something to inspire, something you can use in your work, or just an escape.

As you contribute to a month of my creating, your donation helps insure these videos keep getting uploaded, and it will help me stay on the creative track. I’ll be putting other projects like interview videos and bits documenting my travels on my Patreon page first, so you will see them before anyone else.

Can you change your mind and withdraw? – Of course. I appreciate all your support in whatever fashion.

I hope you will try this experiment and find the right comfortable level of commitment. I always wish I could share more of my music with my friends (or do I call you “fans” as Facebook and Patreon do?) I think many fans/friends would like to see me thrive with my music, and that you might care to hear from me more. I hope you’ll agree this is a means for my performing, composing, teaching to grow and to create a new relationship for us.
