INTRO VIDEO COMING SOON....
WHO ARE YOU? I’m Chris Caulder. I write/produce a ton of songs, make random youtube videos (mostly music-related but occasionally reviews, tutorials, rants, etc), and I teach music (drums, guitar, bass, piano, and songwriting/producing) as my day job. I'd love to eventually be able to go on short tours, with the music I am involved in (primarily the band Seldom Family).
WHAT IS PATREON? Patreon lets fans help artists continue to do what they love to do!
WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO? I love to write songs, practice all of my instruments, make youtube videos & tutorials, record and produce songs in my home studio and eventually, travel and tour the country playing shows!
HOW CAN I HELP YOU? You can become a monthly patron via Patreon... pledge any amount you want (as low as $3 per month!) to support what I do and you’ll receive exclusive access to my music and videos (not publicly available), and first-hand knowledge of new videos, demo songs, upcoming shows, album releases, and tons of other weird but cool stuff that I do!
YOU WANT MY MONEY!? AHHH!!!! I usually post only 3-5 videos a month (and a few albums/EPs per year) and you can set your allowed monthly donation to an amount you're comfortable giving. You can also change your pledge amount at any time!
I'm Chris Caulder. I'm a shy, socially awkward, creative, passionate and romantic soul. I make original music and do covers on YouTube in a "videosong" format, and I also do recording and songwriting tutorials for YouTube, as well as occasionally do music gear reviews and stuff. I also run several blogs: one of which promotes unsigned and lesser-known indie bands, and another is an informative songwriting/recording blog which has already gained some decent traction even though I've never really promoted it.I'm of the firm mindset that music, movies, and books truly do change the world... I've felt like this since I was a kid, and still feel like this, today.
I wish to give back to the world all of the things that artists and art creators have given me all my life: happiness and a reason to live.
I love to teach people how to get creative things done with the least amount of resistance and the least amount of money, so I create tutorials about how to make music efficiently and cheaply (I realize I said the same thing twice, just reworded, but hey... it's true).
MY ORIGINAL MUSIC
As mentioned above, I make original music...... a LOT of it. Hundreds and hundreds of songs of varying styles and genres... most of which I do not have enough confidence to share with the world, even though close friends and acquaintances and music students of mine have all said it's pretty good and that people need to hear it. So I joined this site in hopes that people will be my patrons and inspire me to confidently release all the original music that I've written over the years, and has sat on my hard drive, hiding from the world.
WHY YOU ARE THE IMPORTANT FACTOR HERE:
If you find my tutorials or blogs helpful, or if you find my vlogs/rants/raves informative or perception-altering in some way, or most importantly, if you really enjoy my original music (the little you've heard so far), then please consider being one of my patrons. I will continue to upload useful, cool, and musically heartfelt content for as long as I'm able... and starting this month, I am uploading a LOT more original music to my channel, from summer 2017 onward.
WHY I JOINED THIS SITE:
I saw that Jack Conte from Pomplamoose launched this site four years ago, and I wanted to be a part of it, because he's a big musical (and personal) influence on me... so, we'll see what comes of this.
Thank you ALL for listening and thank you for helping me get OUT THERE more as a passionate, totally down-to-earth and unselfishly giving artist.
