About Michael Rider

Hello! Its Michael! I must begin by saying thank you to everyone who has visited this Patreon page and contributed along the years. Your support means more to me than you will ever know. If this is your first time meeting me: My name is Michael Rider. I am a independent, pop, singer-songwriter from NYC. As an independent artist, this Patreon has been my main source of income in which has supported all of my artist endeavors. I’ve been so grateful to have received $3,533.50 in monthly pledges since initiating this Patreon page back in June of 2019.

One of the hardships about being an artist is the unsteady stream of income one receives. Stability and artistry don’t really go together, however, this Patreon has allowed me a bit of normalcy in these terms.

As I became older and finally found this outlet, I was able to not only receive a kind of salary for my work, I was able to cultivate a community of like-minded individuals. As a non-binary, trans feminine person making pop music in a predominately heteronormative industry, this platform has empowered me to carve out my own, unique narrative. I am able to experiment and foster my artistic voice, finding myself as an artist and making the work I yearn to create, to express the experiences of myself and in turn representing my community’s shared experience.
If you have made it this far, Thank you so much for listening to a bit of my story. It certainly isn’t an easy life, but I would have it no other way. Anyways, enough about me. Let me go over the rewards one receives for pledging.

For a dollar a month, you receive a monthly download of music. This can take form as a demo of an unreleased song or a studio recording! It changes from month to month!

For three dollars a month, you will receive access to my video blog series where I share details of my artistic life and how turbulent and strange that sometimes may be!

For seven dollars a month, you will receive access into monthly livestream shows exclusive to my Patreon.

For twenty-five dollars a month, you will receive physical mail bi-monthly. This could take shape as physical music, like a CD, a t-shirt, or a one of a kind artwork!

Lastly, for a hundred dollars, one gets monthly skype calls with tarot card readings!

Again, I want to express my gratitude for you if you have watched the full video! I do hope you consider pledging. I won’t take your hard earn dollars for granted, while I understand to be an artist is to be privileged and I take that very seriously. Come build something great with me! See you on the other side.
