patrons

Hello! My name is Jessica Fogle and I write lo-fi dream folk / bedroom pop songs + existential lullabies.

I’m here on Patreon because I’ve lived a very charmed life musically speaking – I’ve found my voice (and very specific genre), released multiple independent albums, and almost had a song in a Chrysler commercial in the Super Bowl once, had my music featured in an award-winning movie-musical, had a 4-week professional run of a musical I wrote in grad school, I've even had the surreal experience of famous people singing my songs and being incredibly kind and supportive.  

The ONLY thing is, it rarely pays. Most of these things pay at the hobbyist level, or not at all. I realized that if I could find a crowd of people who love me and find value in this music I create, and wanted to become my online fan base of patrons, that I could have my cake and eat it too! I could stop wondering about whether at a certain age I had to “give up” and “be practical” and start caring more about building a “serious business” like online piano lesson tutorials or something.  Which I'd be happy to do as a side thing, but mostly I just want to keep writing and sharing songs.

I work VERY hard already. Last year I wrote about 500 songs in 365 days (the official challenge was a song a day for a year, but I went overboard at times). This year I’ll be releasing 12 albums/eps on Bandcamp, in 12 months. I write to labels and venues and book shows and curate shows for friends and fellow musicians and start festivals and collaborate and am in a band (cloudlight) and perform multiple times a month, AND run a 28 student piano/songwriting lesson studio. So I don’t want to change a thing about my current work flow, it’s just that my income is a little too low to sustain it for much longer – without suspecting that I should really “grow up” and be more practical soon.

But I feel like EXACTLY what I’m doing and working on in this world is needed, and unique, and interesting – i.e. a particular combination of cheerleader optimism (that YOU can do it too – I love giving tips on writer’s block and creative play, just made a video about that for some patrons), mixed with a strange melancholy from healing so many traumas, and being vulnerable and transparent about it in music (hence the “existential lullabies”).

So if you’d like to come on board as a patron, I would love to have your support – and share my way of looking at life with you. Check out little perks and packages at the different levels. I’m still growing into this Patreon thing, but I’m loving it so far.

Thanks for listening and reading!
