Thank you for taking part in my 12 MONTH MUSIC CHALLENGE!
(August 2017-August 2018)

I am releasing 1-4 new songs a month right here on Patreon. I am giving NEW original content on a regular monthly basis. I'm not charging you as my patrons.  Patrons give any amount that inspires you.  I'm so excited! You will receive my music in the form of:

  • new original songs
  • new cover songs that challenge me as a vocalist/guitarist
  • live streaming and recorded performances
  • music videos
  • duets, collaboration with other artists

My music challenge starts August 1, 2017 and goes for 12 solid months. Creativity, vulnerability and 12-48 new songs, here I come....

Emily Potter is the "Gift Economy" Musician
On April 17, 2015 I quit my day job and began this musical experiment.  I wanted to see if it was possible to live as a musician solely within a gift economy model. Three years later, after performing the donation-based Dream Walk Concert in 14 countries including Israel, Thailand, Russia, Canada, the United States and all across Europe, I continue to share this one passion through song:

I believe in you and your life dreams.

I make it my only performance rule that when I am on stage, I give you my full, wide open heart, and then I see what happens. My concert guides the audience through a musical journey one fan nicknamed the Dream Walk. I begin by softly declaring to the audience, “This evening is about you….” I sing a song that reflects the new excitement of a sprouting dream just being born. The audience follows the walk of a dreamer as he/she grows into a warrior who must traverse personal fears, risking the perils of ridicule, bankruptcy, and paralyzing heartbreak for their dream to survive. The audience follows my songs like a soundtrack of their own inner stories. I relate my own personal tales of how dreams have been shelved for decades, some have run away, and some must die in order for others to breathe life.

The audience is then brought to the completion of the Dream Walk, affirming with one last song that the pursuit of a dream is the most fulfilling, most courageous expedition life has to offer. I invite the audience to consider that no matter where they are on their dream journey, whether they are ready to sprout dreams, rest from them, or risk everything to embody them, there will always be a dream living in us, ready to take us on a brilliant life adventure.

And I'm so THRILLED to bring in my brand new songs for the Dream Walk Concert...
