Starting December 14th, I will be posting once a day through December 25th - THE 12 DAYS OF PATREON, as a thank you to y'all for being here with me and supporting my little cottage industry of art and music and family. If you have requests, let me know, but I'm hoping to tackle one or two of those covers y'all suggested!

PATRON. PATRONAGE. PATREON. 
The support, encouragement, privilege or financial aid that an organization or individual bestows to another.  I love that description full of gentle words like "support", "encouragement" and "bestow".  I also love the clarity and directness of it. Financial help.
  
I started this project in October 2016 when I was considering starting a family, as I knew I had to begin the rough process of finding other ways of making enough money to continue making a living off my art without being on the road 150+ dates a year, as I had been for 15 years. Since then, I've had my son, Huckleberry James, in March 2018 and enjoyed this conversation that we've had here. I post 2 things a month for you. Sometimes song mp3s, sometimes videos of songs in progress, sometimes stories, sometimes just photos and thoughts. But I post 2 things a month at minimum. Your support has meant the world and I don't say that lightly, as you have enabled me for the past few years to work out new songs for the upcoming 2019 record, "Me and the Ghost of Charlemagne". I had to stop touring last Fall when I got pregnant, so I took a part time job for a bit last year at Apple retail in Nashville. Now that Huck is here and healthy, I'm not working outside of the house, but I've been expanding my teaching via Skype business in order to bring in a bit more money. And I'm working on a book (for reals) that's tied to my blog, MENOPAUSAL MOMMY. And I'm back to doing shows and traveling, although not as much as I had been before becoming a Mom. 

So this has been a Grand Experiment. Patreon is not about a single project. This is an ongoing idea, a sustaining idea.  Think of it as a more intimate level of connection between Artist (me) and Fan (you).  It's a MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION BEHIND THE SCENES. For whatever you choose to give, I promise you at least TWO THINGS PER MONTH.  And you can pay whatever you feel like paying PER MONTH to read/hear/see all this stuff. You can pay $1 and get everything to see and hear. 

THIS IS MY VISION:
 That through this, I will create more, you will connect more and our shared world will be richer for all of this. And the thing is you can leave anytime, cancelling your membership when you need to. But I hope you'll stick around... 
Won't you join me?
