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:
- singer & songwriter
- indie film actor
- film composer
- video game music composer
- script writer
- youtube creator
- album producer
- Custom song & Jingle Writer
- guy who covers The Cure
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?
