If you enjoy my music, please pledge one dollar (or more) per video I release, so I can afford to keep going! If enough people sign up, I will have a budget that will allow me to accomplish great things. : )I'm Ed, and I'm a professional musician in South Carolina. I'm very excited about the possibilities that this website offers because it's a complete game changer. I'm using Patreon because I believe it's the best possible way for my fans to support my music and to connect with me. This website is revolutionary in that it completely cuts out the unnecessary middle men in the entertainment industry. Through this website, my fans can buy my music directly from me without a ridiculous percentage being taken out of my earnings. If you become a patron for as little as $1 a month, I will directly email you MP3s of my music, and I'll be able to make a living doing what I was put on Earth to do. It's that simple.
Here's how it works:
-Just click the orange button that says "become a patron," and follow the easy instructions.
-In return for your pledge, you will receive MP3s of my music and more! (See the list of reward options.)
-You will get charged at the beginning of each month for the content I released the previous month. If I don't release any videos, you will not be charged. If I release two videos in one month, you will be charged twice. Got it?
***YOU CAN SET A MONTHLY CAP ON HOW MUCH YOU ARE WILLING TO SPEND***
So if I'm super productive one month and release 17 videos, you can rest assured knowing that you will never spend more than you have specified.
***YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR PLEDGE AMOUNT AT ANY TIME***
***YOU CAN QUIT AT ANY TIME***
***ALL PLEDGES COME WITH REWARDS***
If you have any questions that are making you hesitate, please contact me through Facebook or twitter, and I will make sure you understand how this works. It's fantastic.
What is Play Mode?
It's my youtube show, in which I will be creating a lot of music (originals and covers), interviews/collaborations with my local musician pals, and basically anything else I might think up. I would love for this page to eventually supply my company, Play Mode LLC, with a recording budget, so I can have an ongoing webshow. Having a steady budget would allow me to go to professional studios and pay professional musicians' for their session work. This would allow me to elevate my craft to a new level, and possibly accomplish great things. With this website, the sky is the limit. The possibilities are very exciting.
If you don't feel like pledging, no worries! I'll still love you anyway for just watching my videos and/or listening to my music. I just want to entertain you, and if you feel like dropping some money into my "virtual tip jar," well...that's awesome. Every little bit helps. Thank you so much!
