Thank you for your support! I appreciate every little bit. I want everyone who contributes to my art to feel included, so all of my tiers have the same benefits. I understand that for most people the level of monetary support that you decide to contribute is based on your ability, and I won't shut any of my Patrons out simply because they can't afford to contribute as much as someone else. So, here's how my Patreon page works: if you are a patron you will ALWAYS have access to my content. If I share something here, it is as visible for $1 patrons as it is for $100 patrons. I will do my best to create interesting content whenever I can. The reason I have this account set up, and the reason that I am consistently told (and genuinely believe) that most of you are here, is so that I can worry a little less about surviving and focus a lot more on creating. That said, I encourage you, regardless of what tier you have pledged, to reach out to me directly if there is anything you would like from me. If you want me to send you an mp3, or post a tutorial of how to play one of my songs, or if you want copies of some of the album art... anything at all... just ask. Everyone on equal footing. Everyone deeply appreciated. All of my creations are for you. Again, thank you so very much for being a part of this journey and for lending your support to my art. I will do my best to continue to create things that make your heart expand and make your booty shake.
Much love,

About

Barb Carbon is a folk/roots-rock musical artist from Georgia, USA. She performs as a solo act, as well as with her musical partner, Arrie Bozeman, in the band The Ain’t Sisters. Carbon’s influences are rooted in the beautifully raw, gritty sounds of Shovels and Rope, The Avett Brothers, and Lucinda Williams, and the earnest, inspired songwriting of Patty Griffin, The Indigo Girls, and Brandi Carlile, among others.

Barb makes music that is as accessible as it is personal. A masterful poet, Carbon is able to strip away the layers of her own experience, exposing the nerve and laying her finger on the emotional essence of our shared struggles and hopes.

Boldy exploring genres, she delivers her art dressed with a punk rock edge, an alt-country drawl, or the trappings of kick drum-driven Americana, but at the core of her diverse catalogue beats the heart of folk music, which has always existed for the same reason - to tell our truth.

Carbon has two forthcoming albums. Marrow, the debut release from The Ain’t Sisters arrives in Atlanta November 23, 2018 and world-wide January 11, 2019, while her solo debut, The Fighter, is due out in late spring 2019.

Hey there!

This is a note from Barb. First, I want to thank you for taking the time to check this page out and consider becoming a patron. Thank you! I also want to let you know why I'm using this platform and what I think it means for the future of music. I discovered Patreon after watching Amanda Palmer's Ted Talk (https://www.ted.com/talks/amanda_palmer_the_art_of_asking?language=en) and reading her book, The Art of Asking. The music business is confusing, constantly changing, and nearly impossible to navigate. Technology is constantly churning out new music platforms which is greatly increasing accessibility (for fans) and reach (for artists), but simultaneously making it more difficult to understand how we can ensure that artists are being compensated for their work. What I love about Patreon is that is says - screw it! If you like this artist, this music, this comic strip, these videos... you can CHOOSE to offer direct compensation, AND in return you get access some cool content to which you wouldn't otherwise be privy and you help to ensure that the artists you love have the support they need to keep creating the art you love. Other than the (IMHO very reasonable) cut that Patreon takes to maintain the platform, there's no middle man. Art lovers get to voluntarily and directly fund the art that they love. It's a beautiful thing. I'm glad you're here.

Thank you.

Thank you all so very much for your support. Establishing consistent income is the gateway to unfettered freedom to create. Right now my Patreon usually covers at least one of my bills and that's a HUGE help, but I'm still mired in the hustle. If I can get to 300 Patrons averaging $5-10 per month that will truly propel me to a level of freedom that I've never had, and hopefully creative proliferation of which I have never previously been capable. Thank you, again, for lifting me up, for helping me get there. 
Love,
B
