Hi, Billy Mays III Here.

If you're familiar with my work, you might know that I've been making music for a long time (at least 16 years now) and I honestly feel as though I've only just begun.

One of my favorite things to do is live-stream my improvised practice sessions for hours at a time via Facebook and/or Instagram (and hopefully Twitch too in the near future if patrons want that).



In November of 2017, I released my latest full-length album called Channel(s) and since then have taken a bit of a break from recording new material, mostly focusing on sharpening my live set through extensive touring and local shows.

Now, I've finally invited some much-needed balance back into my nomadic life by settling into a space in St Petersburg, FL. Here, I've begun writing my next album and soon I'll begin tracking as well. All along the way, I plan to live-stream improvisational sessions and also give plenty of inside looks at my recording and mixing progress.

The support from my patrons will help ensure that I'm able to stay pretty focused on the creative process by offsetting some of the many expenses associated with being an active musician. But I'm hoping that all the content I share (as well as all the exclusive benefits) will serve as a source of catharsis, inspiration, and comfort for everyone.

**Speaking of content and exclusive benefits, I'm happy to announce a new audio series for 2019, which will only be available here on Patreon:

It's called (moments) which are short (3:33) sketch songs that will be released 3 times per month; on the 3rd, 13th, and 23rd. These will be premiered via Facebook Live for a short limited time and then will live on Patreon where subscribers will have access.



Another way I plan to utilize our intimate community of subscribers is by sourcing votes on things like visual art choices, merch designs, and other creative decisions that might warrant an outside look. Since you will all literally be invested in my content, I value your opinions and feedback on parts of the work and I hope you'll accept that responsibility.

I truly hope this will be a mutually-beneficial relationship between me, a humble creator, and you, a generous supporter of art, and that we'll keep finding new ways to move forward together through exploration, trust, respect, and genuine communication.

Please check out all the different support tiers on the right sidebar
and contact me if you have any questions about how Patreon works.

Thank you for joining me on this ever-evolving journey!

If you're not familiar with my second music project called Mouth Council, it's an interactive and completely improvised performance in which I invite random strangers from the audience onto the stage to create music with me using only our mouths, one microphone, and a loop machine.



Mouth Council is always active and I'm constantly bringing it to new events around the country as a unique offering but these might start popping up in more and more of my live streams (with special guests!). You can watch the video above to learn more about it. Feel free to follow Mouth Council on social media too: FacebookInstagram

Goals
$122 of $750 per month
When my earnings reach $750 per month, I'll be covering solid percentage of my monthly expenses. The lifting of this financial burden would ensure that I am able to dedicate A LOT more time to consistently live-streaming my practice sessions as well as working on new recordings.

When this goal is reached, all patrons will receive exclusive subscriber-only stickers and the design will be chosen by a community vote.
