Why support me?

I’m David Lindes and I write songs, essays, and stories about the heart of matters. All of my songs are autobiographical. All of my essays are personal. All of my stories reach for something. See, I think art has the power to bypass all of our polite social and emotional barriers and cut right to the heart. And when it does, it leaves you just a little different. That’s the art I want to make here on Patreon for you.

What’s Patreon?

Patreon is a platform that makes my art available to you through a monthly subscription. When you sign up, you’ll be paying a fixed amount monthly for exclusive access to my songs, essays, short stories, and whatever else I decide to try. You can sign up or quit whenever you’d like.

Art and Connection

The art I love most makes me feel like I just had a real, intimate, moving conversation with someone. You know what I’m talking about. It’s happened to you. You cried at the end of Finding Nemo. (I won’t tell if you won't).
I want you and I to form a community that is all about that feeling.

The Rewards!

$1 / Month: Dip Your Toes
For $1 a month, you’ll get one download - that could be an MP3 of a new song or a PDF of a new essay - per month. For the price of a gum ball or a sticky hand you can connect with your own humanity once a month.

$5 / Month: Wade In The Water
For $5 a month, you’ll get everything I make. That’s at least 4 downloads - again they could be songs or written pieces. So instead of one fast-food meal per month you can have access to art about things that matter.

$9 / Month: Cannonball!
For $9 a month, you’ll get everything I make along with access to the behind-the-scenes stream. That’s journal entries and videos about new ideas, works-in-progress, and even some bloopers. Oh, and one more thing: you’ll get to attend a monthly concert / reading / hang via Google Hangouts. For the price of a pair of secondhand jeans you and I could be bonding over words and music every month!

RANDOM CUSTOM SONG OF AWESOMENESS
I will choose one patron at random and write them a song. A good one. No BS. No shortcuts. Maybe their dog just died. Maybe they just had a baby. Maybe they just beat cancer. Maybe it's for their ex. They'll tell me what to write about. I'll write and produce it. Then all patrons will get to hear it along with the story behind it. Wow. We're bonding already!
