Welcome to The Family!

I'm Keith. I'm a very normal dude that believes in the power of dreaming big. I've learned from my journey of going from a TN State Park Ranger to throwing myself into the unknown of playing music that I'm better if I focus on being the best version of myself. I do that by playing music that's honest, loving people, and being the best dad for my son, Kip, and the best husband to my wife, Bethany, as I can be (and by birdwatching a lot :)). 

I also believe that we are entering a new era in music. The way we do things now can be personal and real. I can sing straight to you. WE can tell a story together. As the world gets smaller, the less I believe in "fans" and the more I believe in community. So thanks for being here and being a part of mine, whether you decide to become a patron or not. 

What we're here for: 

Though this is a page that allows you to financially support my projects, that's absolutely not required. I want this to be an area for the family. If you can't afford or don't want to pay anything, that's absolutely fine. There will still be plenty of fun stuff here for all of us. 

How being a Patron works: 

If you do decide to become a Patron (first of all, thank you), you'll be helping me to branch out, to become better, and to release and market the music. 

The Tiers of Patronage here are set so that you'll be charged whenever I release a Project. Projects may change over time and will include things like original/cover song releases, live show recordings, and live concert streams. Don't worry though -- even though I'll be working on music all the time, I'll never post more than two Projects per month. I promise the freebies will outnumber the major projects. 

Questions you may have: 

What if I don't want to support ALL the Projects? 
You don't have to! You can "select a monthly max" at checkout and fully customize how you want to do things!

I'm I getting locked into anything? 
Absolutely not! You can cancel or change your patronage at any time. 

Have any other questions about becoming a patron? Email me at [email protected]
Tiers
Bitterns
$2 or more per Project

Yes, these are all going to be bird-related. Why? Because birds are awesome. Have you ever seen a Bittern? They're extremely shy birds that live in marshes. Finding one is a major accomplishment for any birder, just like having friends that support you in projects that you're working on.


BITTERN PERKS:


"The Captain's Log" Entries. 

Yes, this is a Star Trek reference. Everyone has their favorite captain. Piccard is mine, but I digress. 


Anyway, I'm on a journey. If there's a way my journey can help you, I'm honored to be a part of yours. I'll be using this page to keep a video and written journal of what I'm doing, what I'm learning, and how I'm winning or losing. 


Live Streams

Have a suggestion for a new project? Want to hear the songs I'm working on? Want to just hang out? I'll be live-streaming practice sessions, writing sessions, and maybe even shows!


The Friends and Family Discount

Ospreys

Osprey are semi-colonial birds of prey (which is weird) that mostly eat fish. They were nearly wiped out by DDT but have begun to make a fantastic comeback.

This Egret is actually a Reddish Egret, one of my favorites :)

Hawks
$20 or more per Project

A Rough-legged Hawk was the first bird I ever saw that made me truly appreciate the world around me. I was suddenly introduced to a world that spanned farther than I thought I would ever travel. 


HAWK PERKS:


YOUR OWN SONG

For starters, this is so amazing of you. In exchange, I'll write a song for you EVERY YEAR. We'll coordinate a 30 min Skype call in advance, where we can discuss what you want the song to be about. I'll write a song about the story of your choosing and send it to you. I'll also include a hand-written lyric sheet.
