Thanks so much for stopping by at this Patreon page. My name is Nick Standing AKA Jabun and I've been recording and self-releasing original music and covers as Better Than The Book (Ska-punk / Pop-punk), Jabun (Electronic & Cinematic), and of course plain old Nick Standing (many genres) since 2012.

By becoming a valued patron, you’ll contribute towards creating original music and covers as well as help fulfill larger goals and requests I simply can't accomplish alone such as physical releases, music videos and even touring (see the GOALS section). In return for your pledge, you'll gain access to a variety of rewards (detailed in the TIERS section) ranging from music downloads (including many Patreon exclusives) and early access, all the way to behind the scenes stuff, never before released demos, and even mentoring sessions if you’re a music maker too!

Pledges are monthly and to make sure you're getting top-notch regular content for your contribution, I aim to provide at least 1 update & track per month, though many months will be much more exciting than that depending on what I’m working on! On top of that, I aim to release at least one album for Better Than The Book or Jabun per year, as well as singles, covers and maybe some smaller EPs. In 2017 alone, I released 39 tracks throughout the year, and that was without any extra help or funding. Imagine what we can achieve WITH those things!

If this sounds all good to you then I hope you enjoy the music and I look forward to sharing this adventure with you as it unfolds! Thanks so much for your support!

For a taste of what you'll be contributing to, check out the videos below:
Better Than The Book - Hearts Racing (from the Two Years On album)

Better Than The Book - Cathode Ray Days (from the Two Years On album)

Jabun - Home (from the Daydream album)

Nick Standing - Papercut/PPR-KUT (Linkin Park cover)

Demo for the Final Boss Theme for the A P O T H E O S I S game soundtrack

Tiers
Pigeon
$1 or more per month 3 patrons
Thanks so much for contributing! For being a fellow Pigeon, you'll get MP3 downloads of all my finished music as it's released, including many Patreon exclusive downloads & full resolution album art! A high-five should we meet IRL will be my pleasure too!
Hi-Fi Pigeon
$2 or more per month 0 patrons
A connoisseur of finer audio? A Hi-Fi Pigeon will receive the highest CD quality WAV files of all the tracks from above, as well as all the previous rewards!
Early Pigeon
$5 or more per month 1 patron
The early bird gets the worm as they say, and the Early Pigeon will receive all music and rewards of the previous tiers (MP3s, WAVs & Album Art) BEFORE they are released! For commercial albums (on iTunes, etc...) this can be about a month before it goes live to the public, and for singles and other fun songs this may be a few days or weeks depending on release schedule. 


If you want to be the first to hear what I've been making then this is the tier for you!

DEMOlition Pigeon
$10 or more per month 1 patron
What's better than not having to wait for something to be released? Answer: Not having to wait for it to even be finished!

As a DEMOlition Pigeon you'll get to download never before released demos, ideas, work in progress audio files and sneak peeks on what I'm working on currently, behind the scenes stuff, as well as get all the previous rewards!

On top of that (if you're happy to) I'd love to be able to showcase your name (or alias) in the special thanks sections of any subsequent video descriptions and album credits on YouTube, Bandcamp, SoundCloud and even any physical prints of my music (when I can make that happen), while you remain a DEMOlition Pigeon! 


If you want to break down the walls and get to know the creative process behind my work, then this is the tier for you!

Under-My-Wing Pigeon
$30 or more per month 1 of 5 patrons
I love making music, and as much as that, I love helping other people make great sounding productions too! As an Under-My-Wing Pigeon (limited), I'll give you written feedback on your music and help coach you to make top notch productions, and of course you'll receive all the previous rewards as well!


To make sure I still have time to produce my own content, I'm limiting this to only a few patrons a month with only one track per month each. Don't worry though, if you need any extra help you can find it at my professional audio services website jabunaudio.com (studio rates apply).

Royal Pigeon
$100 or more per month 0 of 5 patrons
I honestly have no idea what to say! Thank you so much for your huge contribution!

On top of all the other rewards, the Royal Pigeons will be treated to a monthly 30 minute Skype call, and will be credited as Royal Pigeon "your_name/alias_here" in any subsequent video descriptions and album credits on YouTube, Bandcamp, SoundCloud and even any physical prints of my music while they remain a Royal Pigeon! Once again, thank you so much!
Goals

A little goes a long way and at this point, all my day to day studio and instrument maintenance should be covered. No more being stingy with new strings and picks. Thanks so much for all the help!
