Musical Grab Bag

This benefit gives patrons four new completed original songs a month, two lyrical and two instrumental. These will be exclusive recordings. Patrons on this tier are welcome supporters of and collaborators in my artistic exploration. These recordings will remain exclusive for patrons, they will be able to download them and enjoy them. There will also be months where there are more than four songs offered, but there will always be a minimum of four. This tier also includes a monthly  live stream performance of original material developed through this page. As well you get to enjoy the weekly Monday Night  Lullabies livestream, exclusive to Patrons, at midnight est on Mondays. Patrons of this tier and all tiers will receive special thanks and mention on my website, because I believe the world deserves to know how supportive and great you are.

A Deeper Dive
reward item
$10
per month
This tier will offer all the same benefits of tier 1 as well as  twice monthly 30-60 minute private livestreams where I discuss song craft, offer anecdotal insight into specific pieces I have written, musicianship, general artistic philosophy and basically anything that has to do with music as I am able to address it. I will try as much as possible to let the patrons suggest the focal themes of the live streams, and will offer suggestions and options for topics to be loosely voted on. Live streams will be saved and available for download. I will take time to prepare and present these as best as possible so there is cohesion, and we will of course encourage audience interaction as well. As well, patrons this tier will receive access to an ongoing exclusive video series called “From the Bottom Up” where I will take a raw song idea and develop it into a finished song. This will be a very unique peek in the window of at least one approach to the songwriting process.

The Whole Enchilada
reward item
$20
per month
The Whole Enchilada includes all the benefits of the first two tiers as well as copies of all the CDs I have in print, and a copy of any future releases in whatever format they are released ( vinyl, cd, or digital download) As an added bonus members of this tier can participate in a once monthly collaborative songwriting adventure, where I will livestream a half hour of improvised songs based on prompts given by the viewers in the livestream. I can’t promise that this will yield the next Tangled Up in Blue, but I guarantee it will be tons of fun and you never know what can happen. As a final added bonus for this tier I will include downloads of any recordings I do of reimagined versions of my already recorded material, as well as a two recordings monthly of public domain or traditional songs, that I will also leave open to requests for members of this tier. Members of this tier will also have their names printed in the special thanks of all my upcoming cd’s and vinyl records!

About

Hello everyone and welcome to my Patreon page. 
I have been making my living as a songwriter and entertainer for the last three decades, in large part due to the support of appreciative souls like yourself. As a supporter of this page you will  access exclusive  recordings and performances of my original material, as well as some of the fruits of my peripheral creative endeavors. 
As well I will be providing some insightful videos relating to songwriting and performing, and some of the stories behind and about how I came up with some of my songs, as well as stories from a lifetime spent exploring the more interesting and out of the way corners of the musical universe.
