About Carson McKee


Whether you know me from my work with The Other Favorites, from your rare copy of the blackmail-worthy solo EP I put out in middle school, or from my historic victory in the 2001 National Sense of Smell Day essay contest, you understand one thing: creating, especially creating music, is my passion. I've been writing, recording, and performing for 13 years, inspired by the likes of Bob Dylan, James Taylor, John Prine, and my Dad, who bought me my first guitar and taught me how to play.

Recently, my longtime collaborator Josh Turner and I began touring in earnest, a career shift that has inspired me to spend more time putting my music out into the world for the people who enjoy it. To fully make that transition, I'm going to need, as The Beatles said, "a little help from my friends" – pledging $1, $5, or whatever you'd like per video posted on my revamped YouTube channel is a great way to ensure that I have the time and flexibility to keep publishing content that makes you happy and proud.  

Here's an example of what you might expect on my channel:

How will this work?

When you pledge, the amount selected will be given per video posted to my YouTube account. I will be posting around 2-3 videos every month to start – so that means 2-3 potential donations of your selected value. These donations are split into tiers...$1, $5, $10, and beyond, carrying certain “rewards” like mp3s of the YouTube videos or behind-the-scenes documentation. You can also make a one-time donation by setting your monthly maximum to the chosen amount and then cancelling after one month. 

As a caveat: this is my first time using a service like Patreon, so it's going to be a bit of a learning journey for all of us initially...tiers and prices and such may change some as I figure out how best to manage this page and as I receive your feedback.

Thank you!

I am so very grateful for your support. Patreon has created a platform that allows music fans to directly sponsor their favorite artists – no big labels involved. I'm pumped to see where this takes us, and I'm happy to have you all along on the journey with me!
