Thank you so much for visiting our Patreon page!!
This is Tak from Imari Tones.
Let me explain about our current financial situation.
Because finance is one of the main reasons we started our Patreon and we want to be clear about that.
The reason we started this Patreon is to make it possible for us to keep making music.
In the past, we always had our focus on making music, not so much on making money. But we realized that we have come to a point where we have to make it profitable in order to continue.
We want to make more music. If it’s God’s will.
And I think we can make MUCH MORE.
As you can see on our “band history”, I (Tak) and Marie are married.
Right now, Marie (bassist) and Koji (drummer) each have their regular job.
Since we started working on “Nabeshima” album, I’ve been doing “this and that” to make ends meet, while recording music.
We need some amount of money (not very big) to make it possible for Tak to work on band’s business: Write and record music, promote on the internet as well as in the real world.
As the world is in a tough situation with COVID-19, right now we are not able to be gigging even locally, but we can’t stop here. Hopefully in a near future we will be playing local venues in Tokyo again. But we need your support to do that, because gigging in Tokyo is a costly business.
If things go well and we have your support, then we can do more awesome things like touring overseas and playing bigger shows.
I believe we can do it.
And I’m very excited for this new adventure on Patreon.
Let’s make it happen together!!
