What is Patreon?
This site allows creators to focus on their art and deliver inspiring content while you can get it fresh. With the collapse of the record industry in the wake of new technology and consumer benefits comes a need to change the old business model. It also allows for a much more connected experience with the artists that inspire you.

About me:
I am a singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and I've written over 150 original songs, and recorded 5 studio records with Robben Ford and members of David Crosby, Ozomatli, the Wallflowers, David Lindley, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. 3 of these records I produced myself. I co-wrote lyrics for and recorded on Robben Ford's 2015 album 'Into the Sun' which peaked at #2 on the blues charts: http://robbenford.com/?p=896 ). I also recorded some live records with my different bands over the years "the Honeybrew" and "Lovemusket". I play piano, guitar, bass, violin, harmonica, synthesizers etc.

Goals

LARGE "GOSSAMER" STICKERS/AND HIGHEST QUALITY AUDIO ON EVERY VIDEO (Consistently, even on free unpaidvideos)

The 2014 "Gossamer" record received some positive reviews from the VC Reporter, and I really enjoy the cover art created by Josephine Llamas.  My first goal is to create medium and large stickers (about 3-4" and 5-6") for patrons and fans, in different color variations, most of them on a clear background.

The image has become my logo, and I figure it's a good place to start.


ALSO and probably more importantly: Loud, High Qualiy Audio, on Every Paid Video.  This makes every video more impressive to watch (and to listen to).  It requires that I replace and sync  seperately recorded audio with the video footage which takes more time but will pay off for my patrons when we reach this point.
