What Is Kirby Krackle?
 

Hi!

My name is Kyle Stevens better known on the internet as nerd-rock artist, Kirby Krackle.

I pioneered the genre of nerd-rock in 2009 and have spent the past 6-years as an independent artist touring comic consand music venues around North America/Australia spreading the geeky gospel by writing songs about the best in comic books, video games, and pop-culture. In that time I've released 5 full-length albums, 3 live albums, and have had a tons of fun doing it.



Why Should I Pledge? 

Kirby Krackle has been 100% independent since day one. Because of that, my music absolutely depends on fan support that enables me to keep creating the albums and videos that the Kracklehead (KK fans!) community has grown to love. By teaming up with Patreon, I created the Kirby Krackle Music Fan Club. By becoming a patron of my campaign, members receive 2 Fan Club-exclusive singles every month for as little as $4 (occasional song to release publicly after 4-months). 

It's simple...you enable me to keep creating full time and you keep receiving awesome stuff.



What Are The Pledge Rewards?


Besides new songs, we're offering options of unprecedented levels of access into the world of KK with benefits including new songs, original hand-written lyric sheets, monthly live-steams, digital copies of our entire discography, custom songs, opportunities to hang with us in Seattle while we record albums, exclusive KK merchandise, and much more! Take a look and I'm confident you'll find a level that works for you.



What Does My Patreon Pledge Go Towards? 

Because of my amazing patrons, I've been able to tour and record as Kirby Krackle full-time since 2014. Your hard earned dollars help me continue to do that in the form of new albums, tours, and fun videos (see below!). 

I want to keep creating for you, and YOU are what enables me to do that.

Thank you!
