HELLO FRIEND!

I believe that beautiful things can introduce hope and peace into people's lives. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to team up with you to bring a little beauty into the world on a regular basis!

In the spring of 2017 I decided to shake things up a bit. Instead of crafting 10-12 songs and releasing them all at once on an album (like I've always done), I started producing and releasing them one song at a time. This way, you don't have to wait an entire year (or two!) for new material from me. Sounds good, right?

The public release (
iTunesSpotify, etc.) is on the first Friday of each month, and my patrons get to listen to each song a full week early (the last Friday of each month). You can listen/watch all the songs and videos my patrons have helped me make here: YouTube • jjheller.com

These are a few of my favorite projects I've made with the help patrons like you so far!







This whole thing is pretty new to me, so we're in this together. You guys are the best. I mean it! Your support means the world to me and I'm so very honored to hear your stories of how God is using my music in your lives. You are loved, you are not alone, and you can live life with a whole heart!

P.S. 
A little bit about me: I'm a mom, wife, and singer/songwriter who loves dark chocolate and coffee with way too much cream. I’ve been a full-time musician for over 14 years. I live in Nashville, TN with my husband, Dave, our two girls, Lucy and Nora, and our sweet dog, Watson, who loves trying to eat our socks.

FAQs

WHAT IS THIS PATREON THING? 

It’s crowdfunding platform for independent artists just like me.

LIKE KICKSTARTER?
Sort-of. Instead of raising a lot of money on Kickstarter for one BIG project (like my Christmas album, or my Children’s bedtime story), my Patreon page is where you go to help me make lots of little projects (single songs, music videos, and maybe even a book… we’ll see) more consistently.
Also - with Kickstarter you pledge money up front, and get the product later. With Patreon, the artist collects patron pledges AFTER the thing is made and released. Think of Patreon as a virtual tip jar.

SO HOW OFTEN WILL YOU RELEASE STUFF?

It will probably change with each season. So far, I've been releasing a song on the first Friday of the month. I may sometimes release more than one, but never more than three.

WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR SOMETHING I CAN GET FOR FREE ON YOUTUBE OR SPOTIFY?

There is absolutely no pressure for you to become a patron. It’s simply a way for you to join my team if you believe in the art I create. This is an opportunity for you to come alongside and help me keep making beautiful things! As a thank-you for your support, you’ll have access to some extra goodies and content.

An extra bonus for me is that my Patreon patrons will naturally be the people who believe in my music the most, and therefore the ones I want to hear from the most! This is a great platform for me to stay in touch with you. Let's make some stuff together!

Goals
$1,260 of $2,000 per Song or Video
My Patreon page is a way for me to compensate the hard-working producers, musicians, mixing and mastering engineers, and graphic designers who help my songs come to life. This $2,000 goal is about 70% of what it costs to release the kind of high quality song we can all get excited about. This money doesn't go to my personal account. It's invested into making more art! Thanks for being a part of it all. I like you a lot.
