Hello friends!


Welcome to my Patreon page.... A portal into my creative world that I'm excited to share with you!

If you like my music and want to help me make more music more often, please consider subscribing. There are multiple subscription tiers starting as low as $1/month. By subscribing to my music, you are directly helping me not only CREATE art, but SPREAD it and reach more people, tour more, and grow. In return, I offer sweet rewards:

$1/month: Early access to official releases, new videos, announcements & behind the scenes journal entries!

$5/month: All the above, plus your name thanked & mentioned on new videos and in physical copies of forthcoming albums!

$10/month: All the above, plus 30% off on new merch and CDs!

$30/month: All the above, plus monthly livestream/Q&A! 


Anything you pledge helps and is greatly appreciated!

A little context (how I got here):

As a young, independent saxophonist, I've searched for the right platform through which I can regularly release music, videos, content AND get paid fairly for my life's work:

I LOVE sharing my music directly with the people (no record label or industry machine dictates what I do), without compromise.

My fans are progressive, supportive people.
In early 2017 you helped me crowdfund my debut album (The Sound of Surprise) 124%. In fall 2017 I launched on Patreon which allowed me (as a young, independent jazz artist WITHOUT ANY MANAGEMENT, BOOKING AGENT OR LABEL BACKING ) to accomplish the following, against all odds:

-Help cover album & tour expenses (retaining my rights to the master recordings and publishing of my original music), Single-handedly book/tour 35 cities in 2 years & triple my online following.

-Pass 1.5 million streams within the first 2 years of my recording career. This is rare if not unheard of for a self releasing jazz artist.

-Garner significant local, national, and international press from the likes of Huffington PostEvernote, Downbeat, release Splice's first ever saxophone artist pack, Quincy Jones Productions, Sonny Rollins , NPR/WBGO, Jazz in Europe (2x), Canada's Jazz da Gama , Live for Live Music (album review and video premiere ), plus digital & print features in nearly every major CT publication including The Hartford Courant, The Day, New Haven Register, and Connecticut Magazine -- and much more!

-Cover the countless unpaid hours every week behind the scenes it takes me as a one-man team to make all these things happen on the business side - before you include hours of daily practice to continue my artistic growth.

 I fully intend on taking things to the next level. Within the next 1-2 years I want to tour internationally, hire part-time staff to help with booking/marketing (so I can spend more time creating music for YOU), and most importantly, release new music on an ongoing weekly/monthly basis, at a high level.

To do this, I need a sustainable model that will financially support my long- term growth as an artist, in turn allowing me to create more music for you. This is an opportunity for everyone to come along for the journey – to become a patron of my art.

It's about the journey. It's about sustainability. It's about getting closer with my fans. Long-term growth. I will be making music until the day I drop. Won’t you come along for the ride?
