Donwill's Open Studiois creating music, art and other audio experiments.
You listen to the radio show and want to show some support. This dollar donation provides you with a download link to each episode and provides me with a way to pay station fees. You will also be able to access my mini podcast and may even get a shout out on the air!
Like an Instagram caption but better! It also won't be limited to 240 characters so expect sentences or even paragraphs!!
Like a voicemail from a person you actually are looking forward to hearing from! Don't expect them to be too long tho, we've all got shit to do.
A download link for my weekly radio show Too Much Rap which is sorta like the algorithm but an actual human is making the decisions! Crazy right?!
I make a lot of music and I need to share it without the pressure of a release date. Some are demos and some are fully polished mixes but now, all of them are yours!
About Donwill's Open Studio
I am a member of Tanya Morgan, I host a podcast called Book of Rhymes, I DJ and perform at comedy shows (Butterboy w/ Maeve Higgins, Aparna Nancherla and Jo Firestone, Shouting at The Screen w/ Wyatt Cenac) and parties (SZN SLT) and I produce music that has appeared in podcasts (Slow Burn Season 3, Adulting w/ Michelle Buteau & Jordan Carlos, Another Round w Tracy Clayton & Heben Negatu, Thirst Aid Kit w/ Nichole Perkins & Bim Adeduwunmi) and TV shows (I was the Music Consultant for Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas and I did the Donald Drumpf song for Last Week Tonight w/ John Oliver).
Give me a second to pick up all those names I just dropped... *rimshot*
Many years ago I had a blog that I started at Blogspot before moving to Wordpress called MC Dayjob that was all about how I wanted to make doing music a full time job. I had no idea what a career in music looked like then (honestly, I’m still figuring things out) and even though I am mostly a full time musician now, I think about those old sites a lot. Once social media became a thing (and in turn songs, videos, essays, etc. became ‘content’) the need to feed the beast in hopes of reaching a wider audience dulled my senses to the need to feed my small close knit community. I miss the sense of community and accountability that it fostered for me. It was a space where my creative energy could truly run free and my ideas didn't have a character limit or algorithm deeming one more important than the other.
Which brings us here…
I’m starting this Patreon to fill that void. I would like to open my heart, mind and studio up to you again. I’ve got tons of demos, secret albums, unreleased beats, sketches, jokes, visual art and other creative works just laying around that I am dying to share. Let's just consider this place as a virtual open studio where you guys can check I’m on all the ongoings I’ve got going on and we can even make some art together!
