Hi! My name is Matt Steady, an independent musician from Leicester in England. In-between looking after a small herd of children, my job is making music! It’s an eclectic mixture of progressive folk blues – it can get pretty rocky, and has heavy Celtic influences.

In days of old, musicians used to disappear into a cave for 6 months before releasing a CD. I want to do something different. I’m going to give you my music as I’m creating it - new songs, covers, videos and live performances.

I want to involve YOU in this process by getting your feedback on songs as I’m writing them. I will be sharing a regular video log from my home studio – you’ll hear songs evolve from a few lyrics into full-blown album-ready tracks. You’ll have your say on album artwork and t-shirt designs, cheer me up when I’m down and bring me back to earth again if I’m getting too big for my boots!

When I’ve enough material for an album, I’ll put that together and you’ll have the first opportunity to get your hands on it, with your name on the artwork! You’ll also be able to get on the credits at the end of my videos thanking you for making them happen.

In return, Patreon will allow you to pay me a small fixed monthly tip. You can sign up for as little as $1, or upgrade if you prefer some of the crazier rewards like recording and dedicating cover songs for you. And don’t worry if you don’t live in America – it’ll let you show your support in your own currency.

So if you like the sound of getting my music on a regular basis, along with all the other perks, click the big red button! See you inside…

p.s. if you haven't heard my music before, head here to stream my latest album

You're supporting me - and for that you have my heart-felt thanks! 


You'll have access to my patron-only content, and will get to hear and see everything that I make as I make it, seeing behind-the-scenes not just the polished end-product! 


I will send you a download pack of MP3s to a bunch of my favourite songs!


You'll also have the opportunity to buy albums first before they are put on general release.

Thanks so much - I really appreciate you being part of the team! 


As above, you'll have access to all the patron-only posts, and not only will you get to hear and see everything I make as I go along, but I will email downloads of each song or video for you to own. 


Also I'll befriend you on Facebook, follow you on Twitter and give you a shout-out on both :)

All the things! (beard level: student)

Hey you're a bit of a keenie - and I love you!


At this kind of level you're showing me immense support because you want to - the rewards are just the icing on the cake.


You'll get all of the above, plus I'll be doing live performances of songs, q&a sessions and I'll stream my gigs where it's possible. These may be made available to the public later on, but you'll be there live interacting and chatting as it's happening!


PLUS I'll put you on the credits of any videos I create


PLUS I'll send you a digital download of one my albums each month until you've got my entire discography! (currently 4 including a rough live album)


PLUS You'll get 20% off everything on my store

It's still cheaper than smoking... (beard level: journeyman)
$50 or more per month 1 patron
Are you crazy? You have my heart-felt gratitude, awe and general worry about your mental health ;)


All the above PLUS immediate download of my entire discography 


You'll also get your name in the next album sleeve, a t-shirt and a signed pre-release copy of the next album.


Request Stems for music I'm working on, so you can make remixes etc. (for non-commercial use). If you don't know what that means, you don't need it ;)


Also, 30 minutes chat on Skype or FaceTime per month. Could be a little live music, or a music lesson, or production, mixing, interview or just a chin-wag. This can be creative mentoring - I'll give you the best possible advice I can on YOUR music and career.

This takes dedication (beard level: master)

OK now I'm going to do some serious work for you!


All of the above, PLUS I will record a acoustic video of a song of your choice - either mine or a cover (I do have veto rights!). I will dedicate the song to you in the video, and post it to YouTube to let everyone know how grateful I am to you!

You'll get my personal phone number and email. We'll discuss life, the universe and everything. If you're around, we'll have dinner and coffee and whiskey and ... heck whatever really ;)
Goals
$281 of $300 per month
When I reach $300 a month, this will also pay for our gas and electric bills, allowing me to power my home studio and stay warm in winter while I'm recording. Oh yes and keep the children warm and power all their electrical gadgetry.

In return I will start to use professional lighting on the home studio videos so they look a lot nicer!
