WHO AM I?
Hi, I’m Nikki Loy! Firstly, I am a singer and songwriter, but I’m also a blogger and illustrator. Find out all about it at www.nikkiloy.com – I’m an all round passionate creative! I have already been creating music for 5 years, I’ve done over 700 gigs in that time and had loads of fab opportunities. So, I know you guys really value my music and creativity and you want to see that part of my life take off even more. I love you so much for that - Thank you! Thank you for watching my videos, showing up to gigs and generally being so supportive already - Mwah!

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
I was a teenager when I first realised the power of music to affect my emotions, and that how I feel affects my entire life. So I started choosing my music consciously. When I began writing songs I approached it the same way, asking 'How do I want this song to make the listener feel?'. That matters to me soooo much more than silly categories and genre. I want my music to meet people where they are at, help them express what they want to express, and lift them. I also want to help them understand themselves better, and hopefully this will help improve their lives a little - Music is a powerful gift! So you'll find all sorts of songs in my collection because as humans we experience all sorts of things in life.

WHAT IS PATREON?
You know it’s pretty tough to be a singer-songwriter in today’s music industry but it’s also the most exciting time to be an independent musician. There are no gatekeepers anymore! We can get out there, make albums, gig, love our fanbases and have careers in music without a major label - yay!

Patreon is an awesome service that helps enable that! If you don’t already know, Patreon is platform a bit like Kickstarter, which enables folks like you to support folks like me who create songs, art and articles and put them out there for the enjoyment and benefit of others. But where it differs from Kickstarter is that instead of raising funds for one big project, you can support an artist on a monthly basis!

This is fantastic news for me because as a songwriter I write a new tune and post it on the internet every week, I also write 1-5 blog posts a week, and sometimes share my artwork too! Later on I develop these into bigger projects to share with you all.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
But you know it all takes time, space and inspiration to consistently create and deliver… So, if you were to become one of my patrons, you would enable me to have mental space to think, and breathe, and create great songs, and other content, and not worry so much about making ends meet… And the more folks become patrons of my work the further I can take this thing… It means I could involve more people and help their dreams come true too… I could hire a band, I could work more with the folks who already help me - other musicians, artists, photographers, web developers, sound and tech people - and we could create soooo much more! That would mean the world to me!

Anyway, I’m getting carried away with the possibilities… So, you can become a patron for as little as $1 a month, or even $500, - as much as you want or anywhere in between!

AND WHAT DO YOU GET IN RETURN?
Well, you get to become a Patron of the Arts!!! :) Depending on your level of patronage you could also enjoy more insight into my creative processes and sneak peaks into my sketchbooks, all my future releases as digital downloads or autographed CDs, my own art postcards from wherever I am in the world, private house concerts, input into choosing which songs get on the album, free tickets to shows, I could even write you a song! And much more…. (Details below)

This is a fluid, trial and error kind of thing. If something isn’t working for you or for me, we can always chat about it and change it so don’t feel you’d be locked in to something you don’t like. We’ll ‘suck it and see’ and keep making changes until it works for everyone. So…

FINALLY... I would love, love, LOVE IT if you wanted to become a patron but let me make it very clear: You are under absolutely no obligation to give, you can cancel at anytime, and I don’t want you to do it if you can’t afford it! You just keep enjoying the free content, and spreading the word, that’s enough and I’m grateful for that… and if you can afford it, well THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for being along for the journey and making this dream a reality!
