patrons


Watch the video if you want. It's what I tried to do at first. Everything about this page is about to change. If you want to become a Patron, you might just want to do the minimum for now until we launch with new updates and when the countdown to new music begins in January! New posts daily (almost) so stick around!
Rewards
Pledge $1 or more per month
All Patrons will get access to free digital copies of all my albums past, present and future for as long as we are doing this.
Pledge $5 or more per month
…and in addition you get put on my Christmas card list. Or Hanukah. Or Kwanza. Or Winter Solstice. Or “hey, I’m happy to send you a shout out as we reach the end of the year” card. There will be music attached to your e-card. Oh hey, a free additional song? Why not. It won’t be a Christmas song though. I’ve never written one and don’t plan to start.
Pledge $10 or more per month
…and in addition I will make you dinner once a month. Well, sort of. Among all of my other talents I’ve also been a chef. Not solid enough to get onto MasterChef or open a restaurant or anything, but I’m pretty decent (I worked as a line cook in a restaurant when I was 19) and I like to experiment. I will make up a recipe for you and post step-by-step instructions, probably with a video so that you can see how it’s done and make it yourself. I also like to do something called “What If Kitchen” where I take some cuisine and pretend it came from somewhere else. For example I once made a dish by positing the question, “what if the enchilada were invented in France”? I may even share my grandmother’s recipe for one-armed spaghetti sauce. I’ll have to get it from my mom first though.
Pledge $20 or more per month
…and in addition I will add you to the comic strip I write, the 20th Life of Corbin Dodge. I’ll need to get a picture of you and your preference of whether or not you’d like to be evil or good (as a cartoon character). No promises that it will be anything other than a walk-on because we have a lot of the story already scripted, but you will be there for all time.
Pledge $25 or more per month
…and in addition, after shaking my head in wonder (because that’s $300 per year – wow), I’ll throw in a T-shirt I have yet to design. I might actually ask one of my cartoonist friends to create it. We’ll see because if someone is giving me this much money every month it will be a bit of a shock. What the hell – 2 T-shirts. Each year. A new design each time.
Pledge $50 or more per month
…and in addition I actually have no idea what I will do here because that’s a lot of money to spend on a single artist and unless you’re my mom it just seems unlikely. Actually I owe mom money so she wouldn’t do it either and I’m done giving anyone any more grandchildren. I’ll come up with something but at this point I don’t know what. Maybe a private streaming concert. A buddy of mine did that once and it was pretty successful. Maybe concert tickets. I have to give it some thought. We’ll see.
Pledge $100 or more per month
…and in addition after I’ve recovered from my probable heart attack ($1,200 per year!) I will come to your home once a year and cook for you and 3 guests. I’m not kidding - as long as you're in the continental U.S. If you live overseas it might have to be a bit less frequent. I will drive to your house/apartment/brothel and make you dinner. But I make no promises to stay the night. I can find a hotel. Don’t worry about me. I’m good. You will have to buy the groceries though – I’ll make a list.
Pledge $150 or more per month
…and are you kidding me? Monthly? Are you sure you didn’t meant to type in $15 or $1.50?

Pledge $1,000 or more per month
…and at this point I’m just going to assume that you’re quite rich and this amount of money doesn’t mean anything to you. Would you consider giving even more? I’d love to quit the day job. Let’s talk!
Goals
3% complete
If I raise $150 a month, I will release 1 new song each and every month exclusively to my Patreon backers. Full on, studio quality songs, and not songs that are planned to be on my regular albums and not just simple demos. Now that’s not a lot of money for a lot of work, but I want to show you that I can do it and put my abilities out there for everyone to see. I’m already working on that 6th album and if I raise no money at all that album will still happen. This is for exclusive extra music. I may release it to the public at a later date, but I promise you that Patreon backers will get first grab for a minimum of 6 months.
