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.

Currently I only charge for albums and occasional online shows (which are $2). Everything else I give away free. Videos, live clips, lots of extra music online, audio from online shows - tons of stuff. So, your patronage and tips are appreciated. Truly.

$1 - TIP JAR LEVEL
$1 or more per month 2 patrons
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.
$10 - TICKET HOLDER LEVEL
$10 or more per month 3 patrons
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  AND TWO free albums to download . Yours to keep forever. You will also receive a bonus monthly music track -  a demo 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!
$20 - ROADIE LEVEL
$20 or more per month 1 patron
$20 a month. Thank you. You like me. You really like me! For $20 a month you will get all the previous level rewards (monthly music, YouTube descriptions, 2 free albums, monthly demo recording) PLUS  another perk.  A free monthly online show ( on an as yet undetermined platform - YouTube, Facebook).,, you lucky dog.  You will also get invites to live, online listening parties when I put out new albums and live Q&A streams when they happen).
$50 - PRODUCER LEVEL
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
Okay... I'm speechless. You get it all! Every reward previously mentioned: thanks in the credits, early access and discounts on future releases, free monthly tracks, 2 free albums to download, a free monthly live show, exclusive demos and behind-the-scene stuff... AND... for an unimaginable $50 a month... I will write a song for you. Yep. That's right. I will write a song exclusively for you. We will touch base, talk, I will gather information and write a song and record it - just for you. It will not be sold or put on an album. No one else will get it. Just you.  A loved one's birthday? Woo-ing a lover? My talent is yours. OH! And I will do a private Skype show for you and whoever is on the other end of the line to perform the song. You will also be listed in the credits of future albums as a producer.

$250 every month? Okay. You get everything. Every reward. ALL my albums. AND I will drive to wherever you are in the continental United States and play at your house once a year for as long as you are a patron.  A full two hour show in your home once a year. Invite your friends or make it just an awkward and creepy show with just the two of us... I'm yours.
