Welcome to Patreon!
Being an artist and musician can be a lonely process.  And that is why this page is so important!  Only here can you actively participate in what I create.  And it makes such a difference to me, the artist, to know you are by my side!  Even with the smallest donation you can be there every step of the way, watching and contributing to the process.   Please check out the rewards on this page to see what you get in return.

What I do:
MUSIC:  First and foremost, I am a musician.  I'm a singer, pianist, guitarist and songwriter.  Since 2003 I've recorded five albums (soon to be six!), toured the world with my music, made countless videos, and am constantly pushing my limits to grow, expand and transform my music.

POETRY:  The basis of my songs is my lyrics.  And this comes from being a closet poet for a very long time.  I have several journals full of poetry from the age of ten.  And so, these words have naturally found a way into my music.  I think the lyrics are the backbone of my music.  And I want to share my raw poetry through Patreon.


PHOTOGRAPHY AND ART:   I fancy myself a photographer.  I've even had a few art shows.  I also create visual art, usually in pastel, colored pencil, sketches or ink.  I'd like to use Patreon to share these pieces of art more readily with you.


All THE EXTRAS:  Being an independent artist means I do almost everything.  I create the music, perform, record, book the shows, promote, publicize, connect to fans and do all the driving on the road.  I do have a few key helpers who are incredibly valuable to me, such as my web designer and my graphic designers. 

Upcoming projects:
My new band Amy & The Elements will be recording some songs starting on February 23rd, 2018.  I don't know yet if this will become an album.  But mp3s will be released online and Patrons will receive pre-release copies!  If enough songs are recorded, we will make limited edition CDs for Patrons and a Vinyl option!

Here's a list of my current projects:
- Booking, playing and promoting as many shows as possible with my new upbeat groove-rock band, Amy & The Elements
- Continuing to book, play, and promote solo shows and shows using my Live Looping
- Making a music video for my song, In Each Other's Arms with director, Evan Morrison
-Solo Tour to Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Washington and Oregon in August, 2018

Let's start with a Skype session to discuss what you'd like for me to create next, or how you'd like your money to be spent. Perhaps I'll write a song for you... or we can make a plan for me to tour to your city or maybe put on a huge VIP concert in your home.   Those are just some ideas.  Let's create something!
Goals
$47 of $120 per month
I am creating a music video for my song, "The Other Side of the World", off of my latest CD.  This will be my first video I actually have a budget for.  Everything is done and I am releasing it in July or August.  Patrons of $5+ will be getting to view the pre-release version on Youtube.  Updates coming soon! Thank you!
