Hello!

I am Eddie Cohn and welcome to my Patreon Page.

It's hard to believe, but I actually started my creative journey a long time ago. I was just three years old when I sat down and taught myself how to play the piano.  When I was thirteen, I taught myself how to play the drums and in my 20's, I started to write and sing my own songs. I also play the guitar, bass, synthesizer and I have gone on to produce three albums. This isn't meant to impress you at all but to try and explain how valuable music and the creative process has been during my entire life. Music has been everything to me but what's incredible is as I get older, I'm being drawn to new and different ways to express myself. It's freaking exciting and I have never felt so inspired. 

Now.....

I teach Yoga. 


I'm a DJ.


I'm busy writing the second draft of my first book. (Probably the most challenging of all my creative outlets.)

After a four year hiatus, I'm back to recording, writing and singing new music again. It's possible you have listened to my music already on iTunes or Spotify or you've seen one of my music videos before. 


This past year, I also started my first podcast called The Downward Facing Spiritual Spiral where I have conversations with guests and we discuss the effects social media is having on people's ability to create, stay focused and be present. 

So I created this Patreon for two reasons.

First, I want to bring you closer to my creative process. I want you to see what it's like for me to write and produce music. I want to bring you in closer so you can see videos or behind the scenes footage while I record music, write my book or get a glimpse at the thought process while I produce and record my podcast. I think there is an intimacy to the creative process so I thought let's bring people into my process a little but more. And you know what? The creative process is also exciting and contagious. In my experience, when I get to see or hear other people's creative process, I get inspired and I feel creative. So I'm hoping this page will inspire you too!

All of my creative pursuits take up a lot of time and also cost me quite a bit of money. The production costs, the recording and editing equipment, the hiring of musicians, the continuing education involved, the time and energy and software needed to make all my creative pursuits a reality. It can be feel pretty overwhelming sometimes so I would love your support. I think I'm only scratching the surface of my potential so I'm hoping this Patreon can help me grow my platform to an even larger scale.

None of this is going to be easy and it's going to take time. Recording new songs, finishing my book and finding a literary agent. Expanding my podcast to a bigger scale or writing music for Film and TV. It's not supposed to be easy but it's truly what I love to do most. This Patreon and your support will help me more than you can ever imagine and give me the opportunity to reach all of my creative goals. Thank you so much.

Tiers
Helping the Process
$1 or more per month

At this level, you'll get access to my monthly blog posts before I post them anywhere else. You'll also get access to video blog posts where I share thoughts on art, music, books and new movies. Insight on staying creative or observations and thoughts about social media, our culture and how to stay more focused and less distracted. Maybe an inspiring Ted Talk or an album I just listened to that I think is worth checking out. You'll know about what's inspiring me right now. Ultimately, that's been one of my biggest goals this past year; finding ways to turn off the distractions so I can be more creative and present.  

Yoga Playlist
$3 or more per month

To me, the music in a yoga class is just as important as what's being taught in class. Great music can elevate a yoga class to a one of a kind spiritual experience so you're going to get some of the awesome music I play in my yoga class. I typically leave all of my playlists set to PRIVATE so no one can access them, but you'll get them here.


After almost every single one of my yoga classes, this is what I constantly hear from students.


"You play the best music in class!"

"The beats, the vibe. I love your music!"

"Best music I've ever heard in a Yoga class by far!"


So each month, I'll post one or two Spotify playlists with incredibly awesome yoga/meditative music. Expect a 60-90 minute playlist of music that's perfect for practicing yoga at home or if you just want some chill tunes to help you unwind and totally relax at home. 

Podcast Behind The Scenes Videos
$5 or more per month

My podcast has become one of the most inspirational parts of my life. The conversations, the intimacy with my guests and the one on one interaction has filled my life with so much depth. I want to show you some intimate and personal behind the scene moments and videos with my guests. Questions and answers that can only be seen here on Patreon or footage of what goes on before the interview starts. Intimate and personal questions or moments that will never be heard or seen anywhere except right here.  Experience the podcast on a deeper level.

DJ Mix
$12 or more per month

Each month, I'm going to record a rad DJ set of hot new music. Cool dance songs, Hip-Hop, Latin, funk, cool remixes and maybe even some 70's disco. I'm going to record a fresh DJ mix with some of the grooviest songs that I'm currently playing at clubs in LA. Perfect for a dinner party or if you want to have your very own dance party at home. Maybe you just want to hear and discover some of the cool new music that I'm playing and listening to. I've always had a great ear for new music and a pulse on what's hot right now when it comes to music so I guarantee these playlists/mixes are going to have an eclectic collection of cool tunes. 

A New Song
$20 or more per month

When I started teaching yoga, I began to experiment with writing more meditative type of songs. Songs that are super chill that relax and calm the mind. Maybe a melodic or soft piano sound or a synthesizer. A song that helps people relax, sit still, meditate or even lie in savasana. It's been inspiring to write these types of songs so at this level, I'll drop a new song right here each month just for you. The goal is to eventually release these songs on iTunes and Spotify and put them on a full length record by the end of the year.  You'll hear them here first before anywhere else.  Mixing and mastering a record can cost close to $2,000 so you're contribution here will be a huge help.   

Behind the Scenes Studio Vids
$40 or more per month

At this level, you're going to get a new song each month and you'll get a DJ mix and the Yoga playlists, but you'll also get behind the scenes videos of me in the studio recording new music. Live videos of me singing and recording new songs or videos of me with my drummer or videos of me working with my mixer. Videos of me during the creative process as I come up with new ideas or while I'm demoing new songs. You'll get to see and hear some of the ins and outs of what's it's like making a record. What goes into writing and singing a song. You'll get to really be a part of the creative process. Plus you'll get the DJ mix and Spotify Playlists. 

Yoga class
$75 or more per month only 4 left

Come be my guest at any of my public yoga classes anytime you want. Yep. Anytime you're feeling the vibes for some yoga,  you can be my guest.

WOW !
$500 or more per month

You'll get a HUGE THANK YOU! When my book is finally printed and done, you'll be credited and thanked in the credits. Once the book is finished, I'm going to have to come up with a cover design and hire a printing company and hire a graphic artist to create the design, the look, feel and imagery for the book. Of course I want to get a literary agent and sell it to a big publishing house, BUT most agents want the book to LOOK and FEEL like a finished product even before it's been picked up by a publisher. I'm going to have to do all I can to make my book look like a finished product. It's going to cost a lot of money to accomplish all of that, but with your help, it's going to happen! 

Goals
$1 of $1,500 per month
I'll go in the studio and take all the meditative songs I've recorded throughout this patron and release them on one full length record.
