Hi, I’m John Millea
I write songs about life, illuminated by God’s word. People tell me that I remind them of singer-songwriters of the past like John Denver or Neil Young and that they’re surprised by how open and honest my songs are. If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve already heard some of those songs and formed your own opinions… positive ones I hope! Thank you for listening! And thanks for visiting my Patreon page.

My Songwriting Diary
Here on Patreon I’m opening up my creative life to let you hear my songs as I write them. Each month I share one or two brand new songs with my patrons and let them in on the inspiration and process behind the music. These songs are fresh from my heart and home and only available to my patrons. Some of them will certainly end up on a CD someday and shared with the world, but others will not… and yours will be the only ears to hear them!

How does this work?
You can become a patron (and gain access to the music) by pledging your monthly financial support. You can do this for as little as $1 a month or as much as you want! Each month my patrons are charged at the dollar amount they’ve chosen, and that dough makes its way to me! I use it to pay bills and buy gear and all kinds of other things related in one way or another to my songwriting work. My patrons are literally paying me to write songs! What a great deal!

How do I get started?
There are several benefit tiers available (all pictured on the right) with different perks like access to a monthly live stream or a yearly care package shipped to you from my family! To get started click one of the “Join $__ Tier” buttons (under each reward tier) or just click the big orange “Become a Patron” button at the top. When you do you’ll be asked to enter a dollar amount to give each month. Make sure to select one of the reward levels as well, and don’t forget to enter your shipping address so I can send you stuff!

Thank you!
Thank you. Really. I can’t express how much your support means to me. I see writing songs for Jesus as a sacred calling. It’s something that I think is really important as a ministry and as an act of worship. It’s also deeply fulfilling to me personally, a way for me to connect with others and with God. So again, thank you and happy listening!

Making Art Happen!

For the Patrons: I'll hire an artist to design artwork for another new tee shirt and sticker! I've got an idea in mind, but I'll ask for your input as well. Patrons at every level will get a free sticker, and those at $25/mo and higher will get a free shirt! And all my dear patrons will be able to purchase additional stickers and shirts at cost!

For the Art: I’ll upgrade one of my Instruments! I'm not sure which one yet... I may trade up one of my guitars for a nicer one. I might buy a better banjo. We'll just have to see!
