About Mike Maimone & Mutts

If you're reading this and it's April 1, 2022, you probably clicked a link on my social media saying that I just started an onlyfans. April fools! No pics of my butt on my Patreon, but... you can get plenty of behind-the-scenes peeks into my creative process! Check it out, subscribe for a month, you'll dig it!

---------------------

Hi, I'm a singer/songwriter, keyboardist, producer, and videographer. I've put out over 20 records since 2008, so I guess I technically run a tiny record label, too. Thank you to everyone who has bought those albums!

Along with creating music, I love to perform it. Since I quit my last full-time job in 2005, I have spent much of my life on the road, playing around 100 shows/year with my band, Mutts, as a solo performer, and sitting in with other bands. Thank you to everyone who has come out to the shows - and extra special thanks to those who've given us a place to sleep!

WHAT WILL YOU GET FROM PATREON?
If you like the music I make and the videos I produce, I've got all kinds of good stuff to send you... there are physical items (CDs, Vinyl, Tee Shirts, etc) at each pledge level. Plus Patreon-only content, which includes exclusive live audio/video, sneak peeks at new songs, my Patrons-only livestreams, cover songs, and more. I'll also move you to my "Primary" inbox on IG so if you message me, I will see your messages sooner.

In-print albums currently include:

CD:
  1. Mike Maimone - Open Mic Nights, Empty Bottle Mornings (2008)
  2. Mutts - Pray for Rain (2011)
  3. Mutts - Stuck Together (2019)
  4. Mike Maimone - Borrowed Tunes, vol. 1 (2020)
  5. Mike Maimone - isolation:001 (2020)
  6. Mike Maimone - Broke, Not Broken (2021) 
Vinyl:

*Physical goods like T-shirts and lyric sheets mailed 6 months after signing up, 8 months for international - unless you pay for a year in advance (save 10% and get your welcome package right away).
 
WHAT WILL I GET FROM PATREON?
Your monthly pledge will help me record new songs and music videos. The costs covered include:
  • Pro Tools, Adobe Creative Cloud, and other creator software subscriptions
  • Studio time to record anything I can't record myself
  • Mastering / vinyl preparation costs 
  • Renting (and/or purchasing when necessary) audio and visual equipment such as microphones, camera lenses, plugins, etc.
  • Paying to properly license cover recordings
  • Anything above that goes towards gas and vehicle repairs
  • Some day, hopefully I'll be able to pay some living expenses, too!

WHY PATREON, NOT KICKSTARTER OR GOFUNDME?
Kickstarter is a good way to fund a single album cycle... But we write songs, pay to record them, pay to create the physical copies, pay to promote the release and the tour, pay to go on tour... and then start over. It isn't sustainable.

Now, you might still be thinking, "but you do make some money? Where does it go?"

As a former accountant, I'm glad you asked... I'm keeping track of my hours and expenses so I can disclose how much time and money goes into each bit of content.

For example, the Hey Now music video took about 6 full days of shooting at various locations, 4 days of editing, and about $300 in gear rentals and gas. I also hired a publicist to help get it out there (it debuted on Pride.com) and took out some social media ads. All told, I suppose I've gotten a little more exposure from the video, I loved every minute of the creative process, and I'm proud of the thing I got to make with the help of my friends - but I've made zero dollars from all that work and investment.

So, subscribing on Patreon is the best way for the people who enjoy what I do to help me keep doing it.
THANK YOU FOR READING, FOR LISTENING, AND FOR PLEDGING!

Love,

Mike // MUTTS
