Hi, my name is Anthony and I would love your help with my passion project, Make Weird Music. If you’re here, then you’re either like me and you believe music is an important form of art, or you’re my mother. Hi mom!

Make Weird Music was started in 2014 with a mission to expand the creative horizons of people like us who really love music. This mission has led us to incredible and unusual artists through fun, insightful content that you just won’t find anywhere else.

With our community’s support, we’ve produced concerts, free public lectures, deep conversations, telepathic interviews, one-of-a-kind gear showcases, and beautiful musical moments. We are honored to elevate the world’s most inspired musicians and shine a light on their work.

A few private donors and I have funded this project from day one while a growing number of generous people (like you) have asked how to support the project. Well, we're ready to take you up on your offer.

Whether you’re able to give or not won’t change how we operate; donations will only lead to better, more exciting free content for us all to enjoy.

Thank you so much for considering a donation. It means so much to me and has such a huge impact on what we are able to do together.


Supporting MWM  here on Patreon will get you access to promotional giveaways, early access to content, free swag, and more.

Since 2014, we've interviewed and featured the work of Steve Vai, Homer Flynn (The Residents), Michael Manring, Jeff Berlin, Mike Keneally, Jan Zehrfeld (Panzerballett), Kerry Minnear and Gary Green and Malcolm Mortimore (Gentle Giant), Paul Hanson (Béla Fleck and the Flecktones), Mattias IA Eklundh (Freak Kitchen), Ben Levin and Courtney Swain (Bent Knee), Teddy Kumpel (Joe Jackson), Andy West (Dixie Dregs), and many others. The interviews (and all other content) are available in 1080p video and via podcast in their entirety for free.

We produce our own artwork, provide complete interview transcriptions, film and edit all our content, design and develop our unique website, yada yada yada. It’s a ton of work and we are truly honored to do it. 

You can help in other ways, too! If you can't donate money, we could use your help in many of our efforts. From social media posts to discovering and sharing new music to listening to submissions to providing contact information for targeted artists. We also try to do everything with open source and produce our work with free or open source software.

Get access to content before anyone else. I often post videos that I share privately with artists days (or weeks) before the content goes live. Join the artist club and see what we're working on before it's public.


Every $150 donated at this level gets you some free swag, like a shirt or some CDs or a fancy MWM water bottle.

I'll give you an hour each month to talk about anything. We can do lessons on guitar performance, composition, music production, etc. Or we can work through your music and I can help with ideas on making it more unique, offer critiques, or figure out a way to get it out to our followers.


This tier also comes with early access to content and I can talk with you personally about what's in the works (sneak preview). You’ll be able to influence what content gets released, too, since you’ll have my ear. 


You also get swag for every $150 you donate.
