Hi.

My name is Tyler Ward and I am a creator.

Patreon is a place where we can rally together as a family to help support music and its creatives here in Nashville, TN. I believe in the patronage model with all of my heart and I'm honored that you would want to support what I do! Consider supporting through the gift of a dollar (or more!) to help fuel this creative progress. You make it possible for me to bring the absolute best production and quality work to the table. Sincerely, thank you for even considering being part of this whole thing!

My goal: To create 1-3 pieces of Patreon supported content per month.

EXAMPLES OF MY CONTENT:
COLLABORATIONS: Africa
MUSIC VIDEOS: Circus & Churches
BLOG POSTS: A Year of Good Decisions

urnal At The Table
$1 or more per Per Creation

Every morning I sit down at my kitchen table and journal what's going on in my head. Read and weigh in on my morning journal thoughts (1-3 entries a week).



--------

My Video Diaries 
$3 or more per Per Creation

Sometimes I like to walk around my house and talk to myself. Don't we all??? From quiet whispers to over-the-top conversations. From deep thoughts to shallow thoughts, like 'how the heck to fix my stove?' Either way, I want to share these moments with you through my personal video diaries. These videos will give you a real-life taste of what it's like hanging out around my house! Call yourself a roommate from now on. 



--------

Tyler Ward Management 
$6 or more per Per Creation

Sometimes I just need help making business decisions. This tier gives you access to the PRIVATE Tyler Ward Management Instagram account, so on a daily basis you can help me decide on which pictures to post, what merch to sell, what artist to work with, or simply what the heck I should eat for lunch! You will have first say in all things Tyler Ward Music!



--------

You're In My Book Club!
$10 or more per Per Creation

Yep. I have a book club. About twice a month I host a book club with some friends here in Nashville. In addition to everything that comes with the prior tiers, this gives you exclusive access to a live streams of our book club meetings. You can weigh in with your thoughts and we can all just get smarter together!



--------

Nashville Songwriter's Sessions!
$15 or more per Per Creation

Living in Nashville, I'm constantly finding myself writing music with some of the best songwriters in the world. From established #1 hit songwriters, to tomorrow's songwriting legends, I'm continually mind-blown at how much talent is here in one place!

Drop in and live stream these sessions! Hit me with whatever questions you have about the process. The real, unfiltered Nashville songwriter experience!



--------

Unreleased Song Demos
$25 or more per Per Creation

I write songs nearly every day! Not all of them make their way to the general public. This is where you'll hear the songs that didn't quite make the cut and maybe even convince me to release them.

WHERE YOUR MONEY WILL GO:

  • Nashville Creators Support Fund: A percentage of monthly earnings will go towards a community fund that will help to support fellow creators. Chasing a dream is a risk, often times a financial one, since many creative investment hours usually go unpaid. I see that a lot of that here in Nashville. If I catch wind of a local musician who, for example, is struggling to pay rent that month, I'll bring the idea of paying their rent to you guys. If you approve, we can surprise them with a rent check and make their life a little easier. I remember being in that spot and know what a little boost like that would have done for me.

  • Colin Huntley: Colin took a risk and left his steady coffee job to be in a more creative environment. He is an incredibly gifted musician with a brilliant mind and an outstanding work ethic. A portion of Patreon financial resources will be used to provide Colin with a motivating compensation working for the Tyler Ward Music team.

  • Jason LoCricchio: Similar to Colin, Jason also left his barista job to pursue a more creatively focused environment. Jason is a charismatic creative who brings incredible energy to a work environment. I often refer to him as my "right hand man", as he helps with all things creative: brainstorming ideas, video editing, songwriting, and household tasks that free me up to be in the studio with other artists. A portion of Patreon resources will go towards fairly compensating Jason for the work he does to support the team.

  • Video Team: A portion of the Patreon support will go towards my video team. It takes a lot of committed minds and bodies to make an engaging and well-crafted video possible. Ultimately, I want to make sure they feel loved and cared for.

  • Studio Musicians: These people are so committed to what they do. My goal is to use a portion of the funds to generously compensate the gifted people that creatively partner with me in the studio.

  • Collaborators: Similar to studio musicians, I hope to additionally compensate these brilliant minded individuals.

  • Photographers: We need our storytellers. Good pictures tell great stories. Photos can make or break a brand these days. Resources will also be used to financially support the work of visual artists who support the work of our team.

  • Location: It's a dream of mine to work in a building! Right now we're running this business like the early days of Amazon...in my living room. The dream is to eventually gain enough support to get a building one day!

  • Financial Team: It costs money to run a business. Each month I pay an accountant to handle finances and keep track of payouts, expensive, taxes, etc...

  • Lawyer: These guys are real expensive, but you need one to be protected. It's the cost of doing business correctly.

  • Future employees: I'm always looking for talented people to work with. In the right time, I would love to bring on more paid members to the Tyler Ward team.
