Hi! It's me, Mike: The guy from Sons of Guns, Fast Man, Foxgloves, and Dear Mr. Henshaw. I know that's a lot of projects (You can check out some music from each of these at mikesurbermusic.com), but they all start with writing a song—We'll get to that in a moment.

THANK YOU! If you're here reading this, you're someone who believes in pouring fuel on creative sparks and watching the wildfire spread. Thanks so much for making that an important part of your life. I love people like you.

My passion is for writing and recording music and sharing it with those who enjoy it. I've dedicated my life to creating as much as I can while I'm on this earth, and I'd like to invite you to be my audience. If no one was listening or watching, I'd still be writing and recording songs, making fun videos, recording conversations with my friends and heroes, and typing words on my typewriters. But it's literally a dream come true to be able to deliver it to hungry ears and eyes. 

The patrons of the Renaissance era were often wealthy aristocrats who would provide room and board or financial support for artists, allowing them to eat, sleep, and practice their craft so they could make beautiful things. The patrons saw the value in a world where more and more inspired art was being created and shared, unhindered.

But I'm not looking for a sugar daddy who will foot the bill for my lifestyle—I want to sell you something. I have a particular set of skills that can make someone like you enjoy your day a little more. So if you want to throw in a dollar every time I write and share a new song, I'll make it my life's mission to inspire you. Maybe inspire you to kiss your partner, maybe quit the job you hate and go for the one you were born for, maybe just enjoy the taste of a pb & jelly sandwich a little more.
Tiers
Sidekick Patron
$1 or more per Video or MP3
So you wanna be my Sidekick? Awesome! Here are the things I share with my Sidekicks for a buck:


1. ORIGINAL SONGS

2. COVER SONGS

3. MUSIC VIDEOS

4. PODCAST EPISODES

5. LIVE STREAMING CONCERTS

6. TYPEWRITTEN LYRICS & POEMS IN THE MAIL


I've structured this in the "pay-per-post" format,  meaning if I deliver three things to you this month, you'll pay $3 at the end of the month. If I don't post anything this month, you pay nothing this month. But on average, my goal is to release about 1 creation per week.


P.S. You're so cool.



Superhero Patron
$3 or more per Video or MP3
You've just been promoted to Superhero! You get everything the Sidekicks get, but you also get these things:


1. A personalized song written for/about you*

2. The entire back-catalog of my music

3. A VIP pass for free entry into any of my shows for as long as you're my superhero patron

4. 50% off all physical merch (T-shirts, vinyl, CDs, etc)

5. A thank you note at the end of one of my music videos


*(I'll contact you to arrange details about your song after you've been a superhero patron for 3 months. If you set a cap on your pledge, it must be no less than $15)


Seriously, you're so cool.




Goals
17 of 37 patrons
When I get to 37 Patrons ("In a row?!")... I'll make a sweet Dear Mr. Henshaw sticker and send it to all of you for free!
