Hi, and welcome to my Patreon page!

I'm an independent artist who has been putting work out without the help of a label for the past 14 years. 

Music is always the anchor to my work, but here are some examples of the kinds of projects I've created and roles I've played:

I released my first album independently in 2003, burning cd-r's one at a time from my computer and selling them at shows.  I released my 2nd album in 2008 and decided to make it a free download as an experiment.  I'm still not quite sure how many people have heard my music, but every once in awhile I have someone tell me they've heard it- and sometimes they even tell me that it helped them get through a rough patch.  I'm so moved and thankful for that.  It was a successful experiment in that sense.

Fast forward a decade, and the landscape has changed drastically for both listeners and creators.  It's now easier than ever to immediately share with fans anything that I create, and give a glimpse of how I create it.  We have new ways to distribute, fund, consume and experience music. These are all exciting, but we have no idea where any of this goes—what will work, what won’t. 

The one constant is that I need to continually shift the way I make a living as an artist, and this is the next experiment/evolution.  While I've done Kickstarters in the past and those were great, they are sporadic and can be exhausting, without a guarantee that I can financially support my writing and music after the campaign ends. On this platform, I can be held accountable to continuously create music/videos/lessons/inspirations for my patrons month after month, year after year. I'm hoping you'll join me in this next step and support my next phase as a musician/artist.

I don’t know if this is something I can figure out by myself— but I'm excited to try and explore this with you and figure it out together. I’m willing to share and this Patreon is an opportunity to see who wants to come along with me.  Are you in?

I love beer.  Buzzing from the love and support you're giving me.

Alright.  You're not messing around.  Neither am I. 


All the above, plus every month I'll write you a super catchy (or not) 30 second jingle and email it to you or whomever you choose.  If you continue this level for a year, at the end of the year you'd have a 12 track album about whatever/whomever you choose.  How cool is that?
