About

Hello, my name is Brian Walker the songwriter and brainchild behind A Day Without Love. I have worked on A Day Without Love for the past 4 years in a touring and recording capacity and I need your help to help me move forward with my musical and creative ambitions. Below is an outline of my goals that you would help me accomplish by supporting my Patreon campaign. 

About A Day Without Love 


Working Collaboratively and Telling a Story 

First of all, for those who have contributed I would like to say thank you for supporting me. As a result of your support your donations have been supplemental to accomplishing the following: 

  • Release my second full-length Diary 
  • Develop a video series via Youtube and other Video channels for Tour Vlogging, Food Diaries and eventually a tour documentary.
  • Increase the amount of merchandise I provide to listeners and fans.
  • Help me press more physical copies of my records.
  • Help me with travel expenses to and from tour via bus and train. 
  • Traveled to over 20 out of 50 states 
Since the update, this a few things have changed and I have new goals. With your help, I will need you to help me with the following. With your donation, you will be helping me with two kinds goals, soft goals, and hard goals. I am splitting these into two categories so that you understand how the funds are allocated. 

Hard Goals: Goals that are needed to be accomplished to keep the dream alive. 
  • Mastering and recording fees for the next 7 singles I have with various artists as well as a third full-length record. 
  • Travel costs for short and long term tours (gas, airbnb, food, etc) 
    • My long term goal is to be able to do a 50 state tour and a EU Tour. 
  • Commission costs to provide more merchandise 
    • To put into perspective to press t-shirts it costs me approximately 250 to 350 dollars to press 30 to 40 shirts, I often sell these shirts at name your own price which allows me to break even, I can either raise the price of these shirts or your support would be needed to help me maintain the accessibility to my merchandise. 
  •  Pressing Physical Copies of Records 
  •  Website maintenance 
Soft Goals: Goals that would help me perform better as a musician and build a community. 
  •  Provide me with a recording and music gear fund. Although my gear is doing fine, to provide a better performance I can be able to get better gear to perform at a greater level. 
  •  Contractor Budgets, help me with more collaboration fees such as teaming up with local and   DIY creators to make more diverse content. Contractors include animators, videographers,   album designers, music producers, public relations, and tour management. These costs can range anywhere between 300 to 3000 dollars depending on the project. 
  • Show curation for cultural initatives: I want to be able to curate more festivals and shows in      Philadelphia and surrounding areas that support pro social intiatives ( recovery, mental health awareness, education equality, enhancing minority representation in art spaces). However there are costs that I can not afford to allow my vision to be realized, if you can support me beyond my monthly goals for music I would be able to give back and support my community. 

I understand that many of these goals can be attained with other avenues such as grant writing, using my day job money, or selling records and playing more music. However, I am using Patreon as a supplementary income to help achieve these goals with a dedicated and disciplined work ethic. Your support is necessary to help me achieve these goals and work harder. Most musicians tend to have a label to back them or have a band to split the costs associated with making many of these things possible. As someone who is working independently additional support is necessary to help this dream become realistic. 

As a supporter, I will be sending quarterly updates via email to help provide you with updates on my goals. 

Thank you for the support you have given me thus far and the friends I have made and the people who have reached out to me. Below are some FAQs regarding the Patreon.
