Jump, Little Children is creating music and audio documentaries and videos and more!

So…why do we have a Patreon page?

Maybe a better question is: how can you be a mostly-full-time rock and roll band in 2019 when you cannot tour all the time but still want to have the wherewithal to create new things like songs and videos and live experiences? We are honestly not sure, but we're going to try this out.

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.

For example: Jay Clifford is hard at work on Cool Demo, an incredible audio documentary that details the making of Sparrow. Evan and Matt Bivins offer The BivBros Show which may include segments called  "d6 Degrees of Jump, Little Children", "The Saddest Game of D&D in the Universe" and "Eat Like a Bivins". Ward Williams promises to take you backstage at Broadway shows and Jonathan Gray teaches kids to sing in the mountains. We're assuming kind of like "Sound of Music", but hairier.

We have been sitting on decades of unreleased songs: B-sides, Demos, high-quality live recordings. We're going to share those with you, as well as brand new demos, as we write them. Yep…we know it's a terrible idea because you fall in love with a song and then we go and change everything about it in-studio, but we're doing it because we know you want it. And because we know you and love you, there is going to be a whole lot more that we will be sending your way if you are willing to patronize us: post cards, birthday wishes, care packages, enamel pins, hand-written lyrics, and other surprises.

You know us. We overshare. We give 110%. So you know that while asking you to support us is never something that we take lightly, we will absolutely make it worth your while.

But it is completely fine if you're not able to give up a few lattes a month to watch Matt vlog about nail polish. We have a small "thank you for your support" tier that gives you access to something we're very excited about: an online forum using the popular platform Discord that is far more like our beloved Opium2 than any Facebook Group could be. We'll be hanging out in it, chatting away, letting you know about shows before the rest of the world does. We can have campfire sing-a-longs. Roast marshmallows. Hygge in the winter and sunbathing in the summer. We can strengthen this community that means so much to all of us, and your support will help us be the creative people that you know we can be.

It's an experiment, we admit. It's new territory for all of us but at the end of 2018 we knew that we couldn't let the glow of the year fade away too much. Let's keep the party going, the fires stoked, make the joy more joyous.
