About Laura Boswell

Hiiiii! My name is Laura and I'm a classically-trained guitarist, pianist, and singer-songwriter based in Asheville, NC. For as long as I can remember music has been a significant part of my life. Through songwriting, I am able to express a part of myself that I cannot through words. It has offered me a gentle path for processing grief, heartbreak, and self-doubt. It has also acted as a vehicle for joy and for a deep connection to others and to my communities, as well as helped me to cultivate a presence of mind and body through regular practice.

It hasn't been easy navigating the professional world as a musician. Many times I have tried pushing myself down a different path only to find myself funneled back into creative expression. Creating this Patreon is a step toward fully embracing and realizing my place and voice in the world. I'm inviting you to support me on this journey of creativity and vulnerability, to be with me as I jump into the net that is slowly but surely appearing. Your support will allow me to continue funding recording projects, to learn music engineering and production on my own so I can produce even more music, and helping me support other artists by making videos and recordings for them, among many other wonderful things.

What is Patreon, exactly? It's a way for creatives to crowdfund their creations, to gain supporters who are directly invested in their art/journalism/music/product etc. Click here to learn more. It's a model that makes seemingly small contributions go a long way: If 500 people donated only $3 a month, that's $1,500 a month! I could support myself in exchange for creating content for you that is heartfelt, community-driven, and that I absolutely love making :-). One of the great things about this platform is that contributors become a part of the creative process and influence content creation.

What you'll get by becoming a patron at any level:
- Access to live virtual concerts for patrons only (I will be taking requests!)
- Behind the scenes of the new recording project I'll be working on in 2021
- Behind the scenes of my songwriting, recording, and video making processes
- Potential blooper videos and silliness
- Unfinished songs
- Songs in the process of being written
- Very old recordings of song ideas and improvisations from as far back as 14-year-old me
- Parody songs (think Weird Al Yankovich, one of my childhood heroes)
- Classical guitar videos and recordings
- A window into my world as a writer
- Tutorials on how to play my songs and what alternate tunings I use
- Guitar technique lessons
- General rambling and musings 

What I'll gain from your support:
- More time and resources to focus on writing, recording, and performing
- The ability to continue moving away from low-wage or tipped jobs that impede my creativity and are unfulfilling and draining
- The gratification of creating content that people care about and are personally invested in
- The resources to record my many, many.... many songs that are lonely and only exist in my brain or in a notebook
- A community of like-minded, music and art-loving folks to share time and space with (eventually!)
