Who are you and why should I get involved? My name is Ayron Jones and I’m a musician based out of Seattle, WA. I tour all over the nation and I'm currently working on my follow-up album, which is being produced by Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees/Mad Season) and mixed by Jack Endino (Nirvana). This album is going to feature many guest musicians, some that have worked with Macklemore, members of Pearl Jam, Guns n' Roses, and many more we can’t quite announce yet. We want to spread the word about this album all over the world. Constant touring and song sales are paying many of the bills, but to keep up at a professional level, we need a little more help to elevate what we do. Having the assurance that certain expenses would be covered every month would be great for our budgeting and planning, and take away a lot of stress and concerns. 

What is this? Patreon is a crowdsourcing platform that allows a fan to support an artist on an ongoing basis. The fan also has the option to change their pledge amount or cancel it whenever they want. They get billed at the end of each month during their pledged commitment.

So it’s like Kickstarter? Not quite. For example, Kickstarter and Indiegogo are platforms that typically only run for 30-45 days, and it’s a one-time only pledge from a fan. Plus with Kickstarter, if a minimum goal isn’t met, then the artist doesn’t get any of the funding. With Patreon, funding is ongoing and a fan can support for as little as $1/month for 10 years if they feel like it.

Wait, didn’t you do a Kickstarter campaign already? Yes! And it was a huge success that we’re grateful for. That paid for all of our goals listed back then and some more. The problem is that we have new bills to pay and all of those past goals are completed. Plus, we’ve nearly doubled our fanbase since that Kickstarter campaign and many new fans have said they wished they would have known us back then so they could have contributed. This is an opportunity for all of the new fans, and future fans, to get involved!

What will this money go towards? I'm not signed to a record label, so we fund everything ourselves. Helping us fund the album will be one use for the funds. For example, it costs us about $800+ for every song we create to write it (rehearsal space), record it, engineer it, mix it and then master the song. Then there are cd duplication, artwork and PR costs later down the line. Once this album is finished, we intend to use much of the funding towards tour support. We believe in making the highest quality music videos possible, and those can sometimes cost us several thousand dollars each, so portions of this funding will go towards the costs of making great videos!
