Good day, good human! You’ve found yourself at Joshu's Patreon page. This is where you can help me make the music in my head, if you’re into that kind of thing.  


why do I need help?

I want this music to be available for everyone, for free, for always. This obviously doesn’t pay very well, so if you're someone who really loves the music, you can help me make more.


how does it work?

You decide how much you want to give every time a song is released. As little as $1 is possible and every bit is massively appreciated! Based on how much you give, you’ll get different super cool exclusive rewards, like previews of new videos, and lyrics that no one’s seen before. It's a mutual thing.


who is joshu?

A man from the caribbean with lots of music to share. I’ve been writing songs since I was too young to understand them and after playing with various bands and artists, I feel like it’s time to start giving them to the world. They take up lots of space in my mind.


where's the music?

Glad you asked, sailor. The music is available at all the places you might want to listen to it, free download at joshu.art, YouTubeSpotifyApple MusicDeezer, and a bunch more.


how much does it cost?

Well, that's totally up to you. How ever much you can afford: $7 per track? $17 per track? $1 per track? It's all cool. You choose how much you want to pledge per song, and you'll be charged per month depending on how many were released (1, maybe 2 at the moment). So if I don't release any new songs for a while, you won't be charged nothin'. You can also set a monthly maximum, so no matter how many tracks I release in a month, you won't go over your budget.


where does my money go?

I do everything myself when it comes to releasing music: writing, recording, producing, marketing, publishing, coding my website and more. So for now your pledge will go toward expenses I have in all of these areas: recording gear, distribution costs, marketing, and all of that good stuff. As we grow, I will be able to make more awesome music, and videos especially, by hiring people, buying toys to work with, and just being able to spend more time on producing.

Eventually I want to sustain my life entirely through making music. While I try to grow my income from a combination of live shows and music publishing and Patreon, I currently have to offset the music with other jobs, making websites, baking bread, you know how it is.


ok, what do i do now?

If you’d like to become a patron, thank you! You can check out the reward levels on the right there, and select which one would be good for you. If you can’t support with money, that’s cool too. Enjoy the music, and I love you just as much!
