$1 - TIP JAR LEVEL
$1
per month
Thank you. You may think it's small, but a buck in the jar is great and always appreciated.  First, all patrons, regardless of level, will get 2 or 3 tracks per months (via Dropbox).  Sometimes it will be album tracks. Sometimes unreleased stuff. Sometimes live. Also, starting at the $1/month level,  I will add your name to the THANKS section of my YouTube videos. If you have a Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, YouTube, Etsy (anything) you want to promote, I will add the link along with your name as a thank you. PLUS all patrons will get early access and discounts on any future albums released.
$5 COVER AT THE DOOR LEVEL
$5
per month
Hey! Thanks! $5 is a meal on the road. Some guitar picks. Along with the $1 Tier benefits (monthly music and links/ads in my YouTube descriptions) you will also get the Patreon only podcast "The Tired Musician Podcast". This will be little audio journals  I record on my phone immediately after gigs and upload a few times a month. It's an inside look at being a working/gigging musician. Also, I will thank you by name at the end of all my YouTube videos in the end screens. 
$10 - TICKET HOLDER LEVEL
$10
per month
Thank you so much! $10 a month is amazing! That's a pack of guitar strings or half a tank of gas to a gig. Immeasurable help. For the $10 reward you get all the previous rewards (monthly tracks, links/ads in YouTube video descriptions,  thanked by name in video end screens,  and the "Tired Musician Podcast")  AND TWO free albums to download when you sign up. Yours to keep forever. You will also receive a bonus monthly music track or two -  demos or live tracks of something. These are generally quick recordings I make once I have finished writing a song. Rough, raw. I generally send them to a small group of friends whose opinion I respect, but most people don't hear them.  Become one of the select few!

About

Thanks for dropping by.

First, if you don't know who I am or what I do - check out my WEBSITE and give my music a listen or my videos a watch. 

Now that you are up to speed...

Welcome to my Patreon. This is my online community of fantastic supporters who like/love/believe in me and my music and show it by slipping me a few bucks every month... and they are rewarded for doing so.  

It's like an ongoing Kickstarter/Indie GoGo. Basically you are subscribing to me.  By patronizing me and my music, you are helping me make more. For your coin, I will be giving you monthly perks no other fans get. 

IS THIS BEGGING?

You know, this is a tough question. For people who don't value art and music because it's seemingly everywhere,  (our gas station pumps blast the latest hits for goodness sake) this can probably seem like begging. It's not. Your silver crosses my palm and I provide you with a service. I entertain you. The same goes for street performers. They are using their talent to earn money. They aren't asking for a hand out.

I will continue to make music and put it out there for the world regardless. This is simply a way for people to show their support financially.  

I basically make money from music in three ways:
1) paid performances/cover charge (if applicable)
2) sale of merch - online or at shows 
3) Tips. That's right, good old fashioned tips... with a little bucket and everything.

That's what this Patreon page is like more than anything - it's like tipping me. If you like what I do, think it's worth it and think that I will consistently release things you like - float me a few bucks every month.

I have chosen to do this as a monthly charge to Patreon rather than a charge per song or video (which I could have done). Some months I might do 15 videos rather than one a week (which is my average). This way, for you, it would be a consistent charge even if the spirit moves me A LOT during the month.  Check out the rewards for the different patron levels.
So, your patronage and tips are appreciated. Truly.
Goals
