Hey there and welcome to Patreon.

My name is Annabeth McNamara and I've been writing songs since age 13, recorded my first album at 18, have toured the US and Europe multiple times, and have made 5 studio albums (and counting). I'm a multi-instrumentalist and am in a girl-band called Larkspur based out of Charlottesville, VA. Songs come to me in the quietest, happiest moments in my life. They have also come to me in the darkest times, like a spark of beauty to remind me what's possible. If it was my last day on earth, I'd head to the recording studio, as a way of leaving my legacy. If you've been following me for awhile, I'd like to thank you. Every step of my journey has been made possible by your listening, sharing, and caring about art in this busy world.

While music has often been a balm to my spirit, navigating the music business has often been a great challenge. Because of the digital age and the Patreon platform, I now believe it's the BEST TIME EVER to be a musician!!! I believe now that I can that nurture my highly sensitive creative being while caring for the Earth. Your patronage allows me to spend more time in my cozy music studio, getting my original songs recorded and perfected and shared. So dreamy!

When you sign up, you'll get instant-access to my patreon creations to date. Going forward, you'll get a download link for the song delivered to your email inbox waaaay before the public gets them, as well as demos that will never be shared with the masses. You can check out the reward levels in the right hand column of this page, including being listed in the credits.  If you'd like to become a patron but aren't sure how, click here for a tutorial.  See you on the other side!

Frequently Asked Questions




What is Patreon?
Patreon is a crowd-funding platform that helps fans truly support the artists they'd like to see grow and bloom... And helps them fully reap the artistic harvest through a direct connection. That means an email in your inbox with a download when I release a song.

Is Patreon a social platform that I have to keep up with?

While Patreon has the trappings of a social media platform, with the potential to comment and stay really closely connected, if you prefer to stay hands-off, you can just wait for creations to show up in your email inbox (and snail-mail-box) and avoid commenting. You're overloaded in the digital age-- me, too!

Will you keep my credit card info?
Patreon is the trusted interface. They'll store your card info and ONLY charge you when I release an actual song. 

What's with all the tree pictures for rewards?
I got inspired to post images of the different levels pertaining to different parts of a tree and ultimately a forest, as a metaphor for what we're "growing" here.

How many songs will you release a month?
I plan to release 1 original song and 1 cover video per month.  When you sign up, you can choose a monthly limit on how many times a month you want to be charged.

Can I stop donating in the future?
Yes of course! You can cancel or adjust your pledge amount for any reason at any time.

What if I want to be charged per month instead of per song? Easy! When you're checking out, select "Set a monthly max" and choose 1 time.

What if I want to support more than the highest tier?
Well, that's totally generous. You can simply write in whatever amount pleases you during the check out process. And I will do a happy-cry dance.

Do I have to pay in US Dollars?
Everything is shown in US dollars on the website, but you may use any currency and it will be automatically converted.

Still have questions?
Shoot an email to [email protected] and I'll walk you through the process. :)

I'll be able to keep slowly building my home studio, as well as take singing lessons to gain some deep knowledge of my human voice. Next piece of equipment = a fancy microphone made specially for recording dulcet sounds like mine. After that, a vocal effects pedal to go hand-in-hand with my looper. :)
