Tyler Ward is creating Art
211

patrons

Hello you lovely people of the internet! 


If you're showing up here for the first time....here's the dealio...

I create about three/four pieces of art per month...including original songs, covers, vlogs, and some random collabs w/ great folks. All of my content is here: http://www.youtube.com/TylerWardMusic

If you would like to help support me in the creation of new music videos, vlogs, or more random, unpredictable art-things (Books? Podcasts? Spontaneous flash mobs in New York City that may require a huge budget?.....who knows)....this is your chance. You'll also get cool things for helping out (see below for reward tiers).

Over the past year, I hope you've noticed a transformation. Change is in the air! And these changes inspire me to create with more passion than I ever have before. Annnnnd...I WANT to grow and change with you! 

I've recently made the switch from Patreon supported "Music Videos" to "Pieces of Art."

Defining Pieces of Art:
MUSIC VIDEOS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPC15TvmQuE
COVER VIDEOS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqWkP8_SqLM
VLOGS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_s6KGm9_DYc
SPOKEN WORD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWr7sthHOHY .
ALBUMS: http://apple.co/1WJYpMc
SHORT FILMS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUQptKPGEkc

SIDE NOTE: I will never collect on announcement videos or sponsored content AND I will never collect on more than four creations per month.

I put my heart and soul into these projects and although some creations appear to be quite simple, each one takes up a lot of time and energy. My goal is to create ART WITH PURPOSE. There is a lot of preparation, conversation, journaling, writing, recording, editing, mixing, (insert that stress emoji here), etc...AND...Throw an extra 10/30 hours due to my overly obsessive perfectionist nature (insert a professor with glasses emoji). 

ALSO...as much as I love creating, I'm not a fan on finding the resources to do so. And that can make things a liiiiiiitttttttllleeeeee difficult. It makes this little cowboy (at heart) from Colorado feel slightly overwhelmed and a little stressed out.  

BUT thanks to Patreon we have a solution!

YOU are the solution! Without you, I'm back home, living in my dad's basement, folding mom's laundry.  Soooooo...I need your support, your patronage, YOU, so that I can continue share more art with you. When I’m inspired, I like to create, and  you guys make it possible! You guys keep me doing what I love to do! I am SO fortunate to have you!


Where your money goes:


Momma always said honesty is the best policy...so...your pledges will allow me to do three things!

1) Pay my bills and remove the worry of where my next paycheck is coming from. 

A quick insight:  I'm personally responsible for writing, conceptualizing, shooting, editing, color correcting, recording, engineering, mixing, mastering and releasing. So...your support helps me wear all the hats. I'm kind of like the CEO and the Janitor of the Tyler Ward Music business. One day, I will find another Tyler Ward to help me with everything...and that's gonna be awesome, and then hopefully you guys can help support that guy too. :)

2) You support will help grow my career as a social media artist. Growth takes investment and risk.  You've now become my investor. That's rad.
 
3) Your support will allow me to mentor young artists and help them become self-sustaining brands.

We are in this together!  So whether you're backing me for a dollar or $1,000,000,000.00 (yep - one billion) I am so thankful you're here!!! Every patron who's supporting me is valuable to me and to this community, YOU'RE who I'm creating for, and I’m so glad you found me here. We are a family :)

ALSO...don't forget, you will get cool things in return...scroll down to see what you get :) We can always change, adjust or add anything to these tiers. We can keep tweaking this thing as we go. If anybody comes up with a brilliant idea on what to include we can ADD it.
