WHO ARE YOU, PHOEBE?
I am an indie folk artist, who loves connecting to the mystical part of life through music, through my violin, through continually writing, and through traveling. Music is a magical thing. It has comforted, healed and inspired me throughout my life, and that is what I hope to do for others with the music I create. I want to connect with people. I want to help people feel not alone. I want to help people feel hope. I want to help people feel. Period. If this is something you believe in, something that feels important to you in some way, then this is the place where you get to help make more of that possible.

WHAT IS PATREON?
Patreon is a way to support artists directly.  It's a modern-day patron-of-the-arts. Instead of the single patron model, this a way for lots of folks to become micro-patrons of an artist, and together become a bedrock of support for artists like me.

WHY DO YOU NEED PATRONS?
The music industry is changing and artists are depending on their fans to support them more than ever before.  

THE OLD MODEL 
We have all heard about the days when a record label would come swoop in and turn an artist into a star. Well, that came with a lot of strings attached.  Many folks ended up having to sacrifice their artistic vision to fit into a mold or a box.  

NEW MODEL - MORE LISTENERS
We are living in a time when artists have more creative control of their music than ever before.  With endless free streaming available on platforms like Spotify and Youtube, people can listen to our music at any time, from anywhere in the world, with the click of a button.  Its incredible. Simultaneously, since we are pumping out all of this free content all of the time, one of the BEST ways we can continue creating content is to have patrons support us as we create it. 

LIMITLESS ART 
Art is limitless, and to be alive in this time allows for complete artistic freedom.  I don't have to be boxed in by a genre, or make my music fit into any sort of branding motto in order to be shared.  All I have to be is me.  Its really freeing.  

HOW CAN I HELP?  
There are so many ways!  One way is to BECOME A GATHERER.

PATRON = GATHERER

Pledging at any level here helps me!  The one thing that has remained a constant through the years is that my music has ALWAYS been sustained by YOU.   You, who listen to the music.  You, who send me notes of encouragement.  You, who come out to shows and make a point of connecting with me saying "I want to see you succeed!"  You are the people who push me to continue, and remind me every single day that I am enough.  And that the music I create matters.

WHAT DO I GET IN RETURN?
In many ways, your contribution here is a gesture of generosity and kindness.  My music will still be available to all people, but those who donate here will get to know they are part of the bigger picture.  In addition, I do have some cool perks that I think tie together the relationship between artist and audience.  
 
  • BEHIND THE SCENES POSTS: I love to share the feelings I am having while I am creating with those on this page.  Its almost like I am writing to my journal when I make a post here.  I know that those who support me on Patreon really believe in my music.  This is a safe place for me to be really honest with what is going on in my life. 
  • SACRED ARTIFACTS: I collect sacred artifacts from my travels, and each season I mail  them to patrons who subscribe at the $10/month level.  This connects my travels and the stories of my journeys to those who support my music. 
  • ETERNAL GUESTLIST SPOT: This is a way to really connect to my audience.  People at the $25/month level have an eternal guest list spot while they are subscribing.  So if you and a pack of your friends feels like going on a road trip, you can essentially hop on the road with us! The only thing is, this doesn't work for FESTIVALS, or for shows where I am the OPENING ACT.  


WHAT ABOUT MAJOR DONORS?

I would be so happy if a few philanthropists signed up as major donors at $500 or more a month, and I would be thrilled to play an annual show at their place or some other fun activity. But I'd also be thrilled to have 500 folks pay $1 a month. I just want to be able to keep making music and to support my family!

CAN I ADOPT A CREATIVE WORK?
For those who would like to "Adopt a Song" or "Adopt a Video"  at the $2,000 level, feel free to email me directly so we can individualize the reward you would receive in return.  Lets get creative!  

WHY IS YOUR SYSTEM MONTHLY and not PER 'THING'?

This is something I have put a lot of thought into.  Many artists use the per 'thing' method, and it works great for them!  But I know myself.  I want to post all the time.  And I want to be able to post any kind of thing - a video from a live show, a blog, a podcast, a cool photo, lyrics to a song - whenever I want without anyone feeling like I am posting too many 'things'.  Also, I feel like this is a space for us to have a conversation.  THE BIG THINGS I want to create (recoding music, making music videos, writing a book, etc) are continual projects that have continual budgets.  I am always working well into the future to plan the BIG THINGS, and those require a steady stream of support. So, a monthly contribution allows me to be able to look ahead and have some sort of idea of what kind of budget I will have in order to make THINGS happen :). 

THANK YOU
So, with that said, please let this little note be one of gratitude.  For the many gestures of kindness that so many have offered throughout the years.  Thank you to all who have helped to lay the foundation of this musical engine for so long now, and thank you in advance to all those that will contribute here so that the music and art we create together may make waves.  May it become an ocean of love to wash away the tears of pain.  May it heal and inspire new creations.

A music lesson :)
$80 or more per month (sold out!)
I love diving into the study of music, and have recently been dabbling in the world of SKYPE music lessons.  It can be in fiddling (any level), guitar (beginner), songwriting (any level), or just a conversation on how to be your truest self.  I love hearing what people are working on and sometimes it helps just to have a reflective mirror.  (1 hour - once/month)
