Hi! I'm Tim, and you probably came here after seeing my videos on my YouTube channel YANTA. Or maybe you're lost. That's okay! (Don't leave.)
Back in February 2014, I uploaded my instrumental cover of Baker Baker by Tori Amos. What started out as boredom has grown into a huge project of mine: transcribing, recording and uploading every song she ever put on a record. With a few exceptions (looking at you, Harps of Gold). Now, I publish four videos a month on average, and recently uploaded my 300th video. It's been a fantastic journey so far, discovering the little details hidden in Tori's work (and occasionally other artists, like Kate Bush, Radiohead and Sufjan Stevens), and I have loved sharing these with you.
 
Are you still reading?
Great! As you can imagine, it's a lot of work producing these videos every week while making a living (and trying to convince people I'm really okay and not about to fall asleep/burst into tears/eat your baby/melt into a puddle of anxiety). On average, the complete process of one video takes me about 30 hours. That's 300 videos times 30 hours! Yes, I'm quite aware how insane that is, but I like a challenge. 

This is where you come in!
You can support me and contribute to my channel by becoming a patron. You set the amount of your monthly donation and get rewards in return! Not only do you get rewarded, you're contributing to my professional development and you're helping me accomplish this never attempted Tori Amos archive.
Your donations will go towards:
  • Upgrading my hardware
  • Buying samples (string orchestra, harpsichord, Wurlitzer, etc.)
  • Getting my music mixed and mastered by people who actually know what they're doing
  • Hiring artists to collaborate with
  • Creating better videos and music 
  • Etc.

I have big plans for my YouTube channel and they won't be achievable without your help. Please think about how much you've enjoyed watching my videos and how much you've learned from reading the sheets while listening to my instrumentals and consider donating!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on Facebook or Twitter.
