About

How can you be a rock and roll band in 2019 when your members live in five different cities, cannot tour all the time, but still want to have the wherewithal to write new music?

We spent 2018 being creative in the name of Jump, Little Children. We wrote new songs, recorded those songs, toured those songs. And it brought us back to you, our community, our supporters, our family. Our fifth studio album, Sparrow, is still going strong and we don't want to lose that momentum or the connection with you. So until it's time to start working on Studio Album Six, we're going to experiment with Patreon as a platform keep creating things.

So far, people seem to be enjoying the extras. While Patreon is about supporting artists and creators while they do what they do best, it doesn't mean that we can't add a few extras. Jay Clifford has put out a baker's dozen episodes of Cool Demo, an incredible audio documentary that details the making of Sparrow. Each episode is an interview with a band member that does a deep-dive into each song, full of stories both in the studio and out. Some comments from our Discord channel:

"I'm loving the cool demo episodes. They tell really interesting stories and I'm learning so much about the band, the guys, and music in general." - HeatherG

"I have really enjoyed Evan's episodes because drumming is so complicated and physical that it's interesting hearing about it—I know very little about it. I love Cool Demo so much." - annejumps

"The podcast is truly great. Ever wonder what Jay is thinking? The answer is EVERYTHING. Jay thinks all the thoughts." - AndClay

"Seriously I have never done anything good enough in my ilfe to be worthy of Cool Demo. But I greedily enjoy it anyway. Thanks to all involved." - lavivienne

With the new changes in tier levels, more people will be able to hear this stuff, and we're thrilled to share it. The episodes we've been recording with Jay mostly consist of questions sent to us via Discord, a place the band hangs out to be closer to the community. Access to this comes with the smallest donation of a buck a month.

For those of you that require Jump, Little Children to be a band and not a podcast, we got you. We have been sitting on decades of unreleased songs: B-sides, Demos, high-quality live recordings. We'll share these with you, as well as brand new demos, as we write them. Yep…songs that are truly "hot off the presses". In this way you're at the start of the creative process of making future recordings. While being able to reminisce about the band as they were, too.

Since its launch in March of this year, our Patreon page has been a growing, evolving thing. We started this as an experiment, a way to stretch ourselves, to be closer to fans, to create new music and grow as musicians. Some things have worked, some haven't. You've been our kindest and most honest critics in this regard. The Patreon concept might not be an easy concept to grasp…you're supporting a band during the creative process, so that there can better _be_ a creative process. You're not ending this journey with a new tour or a new album; our patrons are allowing us to make the choice to make art instead of having to come up with other ways to keep going. It's still an experiment for us, but so far it's working: brand new JLC songs have been written (and shared) already. That's incredible. Your generosity is inspiring.

Patrons have empowered artists to be artists for centuries. Please become a patron of Jump, Little Children today, and help us be the musicians you know and we know we can be.
