Welcome to my Patreon page.

Patreon is a great place for people to become patrons of the arts. The way it works is pretty simple: by contributing the change you might use to buy an extra cup of coffee once a month, you can become one of my patrons, and help me with the support and resources that I need to continue dedicating my time and efforts to creating beautiful music.

As one of my patrons you will get early access to the music and other creative work that I'm making, with a lot of behind-the-scenes content along the way: voice memos of new songs in their rough draft stages; my lyric sheets; my making-of videos; my stories, poems, creative thoughts and ideas, and much more—all made possible by your generous patronage.

Here are a few of the projects I'm working on right now:

MUSIC

– "Get Down, Moses" Solo EP (Coming Winter 2018)
– "(To-be-titled)" Instrumental EP (Coming Spring 2019)
– "(To-be-titled)"  Hymns EP (Coming Spring/Summer 2019)
– Guitar Techniques series on YouTube

If you like what you see, and hear, and you want to help my work along, choose one of the rewards in the sidebar or rewards tab (you can cancel at any time) and I'll be happy to have you with me.

Thanks for helping me add beautiful music to the world.

Baroness Kathleen Annie Pannonica de Koenigswarter (Née Rothschild; 10 December 1913 – 30 November 1988) was a British-born jazz patron, writer; and called by many, the leading patron of bebop music. 


In the New York of the mid-20th Century, de Koenigswarter became a friend and patron of many prominent jazz musicians, hosting jam sessions in her 5th Avenue hotel suite, and lending them her chauffeur and Rolls Royce when they needed lifts to performances. 


She is sometimes referred to as the "bebop baroness" or "jazz baroness" because of her patronage of Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker among others. 


There are numerous compositions in her honour. Gigi Gryce's "Nica's Tempo", Sonny Clark's "Nica", Horace Silver's "Nica's Dream", Kenny Dorham's "To Nica", Kenny Drew's "Blues for Nica", Freddie Redd's "Nica Steps Out", Barry Harris's "Inca", Tommy Flanagan's "Thelonica" and Thelonious Monk's "Pannonica" were all named after her.
