is creating Music




per creation


Hey! I'm CJ! Every day, I get to write & perform music with my best friends Bryan, Joe, Paul, and Corey. We call ourselves DIVIDES, and we're a band from Anchorage, Alaska, currently operating in Portland.

What's a Patreon?

Patreon is a website that connects artists of all kinds with people who believe in what they're creating. You pick a pledge amount, become a patron, and enjoy all the perks - including the coveted warm fuzzy feeling.

It's different from Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, or other crowd-funding platforms. Think of it more as a tip jar, and less of a bribe to pay for something that hasn't been created yet.

So...why do I care?
I was singing as soon as I could speak. Long before that, I was screaming and flailing in a manner similar to how I perform with my band.

Around the age of 13, I started to ask all the hard questions that early teenagers tend to - and I found my answers in music. Countless voices and instruments carried me through the nights that I cried myself to sleep and the days at school when I felt alone and worthless. They inspired me to channel my own frustrations and turmoil into music.

Because of that period in my life, I feel a responsibility to create, to share and to connect with other humans through music. And I'd like to do that with my best friends - my band.

A year ago, Joe, Corey, Bryan and I made the decision to move away from our homes, families and jobs to pursue our passion. Since relocating, we met an honest-to-god rock star named Paul and brought him into the fold. It's been far from easy; unfortunately we've dealt with a great deal of loss throughout this transition. Regardless of the difficulties, we've been hard at work over the past year, and we can't wait to share our plans with you; a new album, tour dates, and several music videos are in the works, and that's just the beginning.

I can't NOT play music. No matter how discouraged my heart or hoarse my vocal chords, I'm going to wake up the next day and sing. And I want to share all of that music with you.
