About David Rovics
The patronage concept in a nutshell is simple. For me -- as for so many other musicians, artists, journalists and others that today we often call content creators -- it is no longer possible to make ends meet by some combination of traveling, performing, writing and recording. That economy has largely collapsed, in so many ways. What has, for some of us, made it possible to continue full speed ahead with what we do, is a combination of crowdfunding individual projects, and subscription-style, ongoing patronage from supporters, organized through platforms such as this one.
Mainly what you get in exchange for your support is the knowledge that you are making it possible for me to keep doing what I do. But there are also many different exclusive offerings, only available to patrons, and there will be many more to come!
The goal, then, is to keep on writing and recording songs and albums, putting them up for free, along with podcasts and essays and other things, some of which is only for supporters. But the goal, fundamentally, is to keep going, despite the challenges inherent in the free economy, combined with the housing crisis.
