Hello lovelies and darling misfits!

My name is Kat. Some of you may know me from The Voice. Some of you may know me from my fabulous San Francisco/Seattle variety show, Misfit Cabaret. Some of you may know me from seeing me trek up and down the east coast in my very first band, The Design. Or maybe you just stumbled upon this page and are intrigued. HELLO!

After 4 successful Kickstarters and GoFundMes, I have started a Patreon.

Why?

I want to release new art to you (songs, music videos, and other artistic endeavors) without you having to wait. I plan on releasing a thing every 2-3 months, and I'll always give Patreon backers a heads up!

Misfit Cabaret is a wild variety rock opera for which I write two new original songs for every new show. Each show is themed, and I write within the parameters of the theme. For instance- we have a cult film variety show called Cinephilia, so I wrote songs about Edward Scissorhands and photo journalists turning war into art. For Whimsea, our nautical themed show, I wrote a song about a real life underwater ballroom tragedy, and a song about David Bowie on a beach (he had just passed away, I wanted/needed to write a song for him, and parameters have workarounds). For A Very Bloody Misfit Cabaret, I wrote a song about Stephen King's Carrie White and a song about alcohol in the form of a succubus.

For the first 10 songs from Misfit Cabaret, I released a heavy full length album through Kickstarter (CHECK IT OUT!).

Now that we're doing a brand new Misfit Cabaret every two months, the music is flowing fast, and rather than wait an entire year or two to release all of the new songs on another album and do yet another giant KS campaign, I would love to record them one at a time and give them to you as soon as they are ready to be released. Patreon is perfect for this. The first song I released through Patreon was "What An Excellent Day For An Exorcism", with more on the way ("King" and "Criminal" are currently being wrapped and will soon be released exclusively to Patreon).

In addition to releasing new music, I also want to create cinematic music videos for some (or all) of the Misfit Cabaret studio recordings. Incredible videographers in the Bay Area have approached me with ideas that I'm over the moon for, and I would love to create visual art to go along with each of these songs. Since the launch of my Patreon, we have funded and released a music video for "Artists", "Song For David Bowie", and "What An Excellent Day For An Exorcism". 

I would also like to release Patreon-backers-only exclusive videos of the full Misfit Cabaret shows from beginning to end, especially for fans who live on the other side of the country/world and can't see it live. Grimm is the first one I'd like to tackle, because it was such a beautiful show.

In supporting this Patreon, you are not only supporting me as an artist, you are also supporting the Bay Area artist community. Having the funds to record new songs and create new videos means I get to employ local artists– just as Misfit Cabaret employs local performers and gives them a big gorgeous stage to dazzle on. 

Thank you for your support! Now let's go make some art together!

xo,
Kat

***FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
1. How much will this cost me?  Is it a monthly charge?
ANSWER: There are two ways of setting a Patreon up- one is a monthly cost and one is a pay-per-thing. I went with the pay per thing option because I'm only going to be putting something out once every 2-3 months. I wouldn't want people to pay monthly if they're not receiving anything. It's completely up to you how much you pay for a thing. There are different price tiers to the right of the page, and you can be a patron for as little as $1 and receive song downloads and other goodies.
