Kevin Schlereth is creating Music and community

 This is an invitation to help us continue building music communities. 
Since 2011, my family and I have been traveling the country in an attempt to knit together a community. Struck by the tendency of people to age into lives of seclusion, we set out to get people together,  to awaken folks to the joy of being in authentic community.  The vehicle for this mission has been music.  Sharing art that aims to inspire intentionality in intimate house show settings, we have ran endless figure eights around this land desperately inviting people in. You are integral to this: you are the soil,  the water,  the sun,  and the fruit. Thank you for all you have already contributed through the offering of your ears,  mind,  and heart. 

Help us spread our vision of an economy of gifts.
Another core conviction governing our traveling musical adventure has been that the True economy is one of gifts. We have long sought to offer everything we have to give as a gift with no financial obligation to recipients.  This goes for music (live and recorded) as well as merchandise  (shirts,  pins,  whatnot). We believe strongly that this offering of gifts is more reflective of deep truth than the capitalistic model that most things function on.  We are also aware of the joy of giving. This is what brings us here to Patreon. You owe us nothing, and everything we have to offer is available for nothing to anyone that would have it.  But we are aware that people like yourself might take real joy in gifting us something.  I hope this might be a path that can enable that to happen. 
Tiers
Buds
$1 or more per month 6 patrons
Buds are the best.  Giving anything at all is such a generous thing. Thank you! You, like everyone, have access to everything we have ever made. Buds that have been patrons for at least 3 months will receive a personalized Christmas card. 
Pals
$10 or more per month 6 patrons
Thanks for being a pal. Pals get the bud rewards but pals that have been patrons for at least 3 months also will receive a Christmas gift along with their card.
Family
$20 or more per month 4 patrons
Family is so important to us.  We really believe that so many of the people in our lives have become family to us. Thank you for your generosity. Family patrons get the previous tier rewards but also get prerelease downloads of any musical releases.  Additionally,  patrons at this tier will receive a birthday present (provided you tell us your birthday). I mean, you're family!
Goals
$216 of $500 per month
Neverendingtour 2.0
It has been a long time since we embarked on this adventure.  We have self funded several records and played endless shows.  We are on our 3rd touring vehicle and have added various travel partners as well as a third child to the mix. One of the costs of doing what we have done is that quality alone time is hard to come by and the simple things of life that come with a stationary lifestyle have been foreign to us. 
We are heading into a new phase of life.  One in which we would like to continue to serve our mission but also attend to some interpersonal family needs. I don't honestly know the amount of money we would need monthly to make this a reality.  For 7 years we have lived nowhere,  and had a near zero cost of living.  We have the funds to secure housing but would love to utilize that housing to address our core needs without distracting from our touring more than necessary. Patrons supporting us on a monthly basis will allow us to let down time be down time and tour time be tour time. This will be an enormous blessing to us.  Thanks for considering helping us into this new reality.
$500 / month is likely more than enough to facilitate this reality
