Hi friends! My name is Bobby Jo Valentine. I'm an artist. I write and sing songs about why we're were, how it feels, what matters most, and all points in between.

I'd love for you to support the art I'm making. Back in the day, there were patrons of the art, a generous minority that allowed art to continue being made into the world. Today, the world is a 'consumer majority'...mostly made up of people who relate to art in a 'what can my money buy me' sort of way. But, there are some beautiful people - hopefully like yourself! - that understand for art to thrive, us artists need to be supported with a 'creative' and not a 'consumer' mindset. 

I'm inviting you to pledge monthly to help me continue making art. The invitation is to donate every month, for however many months you'd like, and help me make something beautiful. Pledge $3, or $30, or $300 per month - whatever your comfort level is and however strongly you feel connected to my art. If 200 people pledge $10 per month, that means I get to make an album a year with your support!

I'll be releasing a video blogs on here, and new songs, and more! Everyone who pledges - you can pledge as little as $1 per month and as much as $500 - gets to experience the new art I'm creating as soon as it arrives, before anyone else, and some of which will only be available to patrons. The greater you can support, the more fun the reward! 

Please click on one of the levels below - whatever you can do - if you'd like to be a patron. Thank you, so much, for being part of my life sharing music. I hope you become a patron today!

Goals
$935 of $1,500 per month
Hooray! I can make an album this year! This includes studio time to record demos and work on preproduction and, at the end of 12 months, being able to finish off and polish the new album, which we'll plan on releasing in the fall of 2015! This is the bare minimum of what I need to be able to make and release the new album.
