Hi.


I'm Jason Harrod, a performing songwriter living in Brooklyn, NY.  Most of you know me already, but in case not there's a longer bio here

What is this Patreon page for?


I'm here to ask you to become a patron -- that is, to consider making a monthly pledge in any amount to help me sustain my career as a performing and recording songwriter.  This means I'm making a new album (yay!) and that your pledge will help me pay for it (including things like production, studio time, personnel, equipment, and manufacturing).  But your pledge will also go toward other projects (like videos and a lyric and music book), toward instrument repair, and, occasionally, toward day-to-day expenses like groceries and rent. My hope is that your financial support will enable me to have more time and breathing room for creating music, with the added benefit of increased accountability and interaction between us. I've started many songs that I haven't finished.  It helps me to have deadlines, and I believe having a monthly deadline will help me commit to finishing more songs and being more productive in general.

What kinds of things will your patrons receive?


• One (or more) song month -- either a new completed original, a work-in-progress (demo), or a cover, -- accompanied by special behind-the-scenes Jason Harrod thoughts.

• One (or more) video a month -- either performance, doc-style, vlog-style, or music video -- accompanied by special behind-the-scenes Jason Harrod thoughts.

A new album, professionally recorded, to be released on or before Spring of 2019.

A new song book! (music and lyrics from the new album, with a story about each song).  My goal is Spring 2019 release.

Increased interaction with one of your most favorite and humble musical artists.

What happens next?


You sign up, then decide how much a month you want to, and can afford to, pledge. I said in the video that I thought $10 was the sweet spot, but a lower amount might be more practical over the long haul.  You can pledge as little as a dollar a month.

Who are you recording with?


Howie Beno (howiebeno "dot" com).  He's a friend from college who is an incredibly gifted musician and producer.  He's worked with an impressive array of artists, including Depeche Mode, Dionne Warwick, Katie Perry and Blondie.  His specialty is electronic programming.

What if we want to help you make this specific album but not support you beyond that? Or what if we need to change or cancel our pledge for some other reason?

You can edit, change, or cancel your pledge at any time. Even if you only pledge for a short time, you'll receive all the rewards from the level at which you pledge.  I'd like to have people on board for a long time, so if your current pledge is becoming a financial burden to you, I hope you will consider editing it to a lower amount rather than cancelling outright.  You can pledge as little as $1 a month.

This seems like a grueling schedule.  Will you be able to keep it up?


I believe so.  I'm going to try it for a year.  If it's too much I can scale back.  Why don't you join me for a year and let's see how it goes?

What else should we know?

Some stuff I share on here (like rough demos) will be available only to patrons, but most stuff (like videos) will eventually be shared with a wider audience. I'm excited for this. I think it has real possibilities. I'm also new to it, so please bear with me if there are hiccups, bumps or mixed metaphors in the road. I will be honest and transparent with you about what's going on.

Please reach out if you have questions or concerns that weren't addressed here. You can reach me at jason "at" jasonharrod.com.

Most of you reading this have been supporters of mine for a long time already.  *Thank you*
