That First Dent
Oh, my friends and supporters! I hope you don't judge me too harshly for missing most of my days this week. Here's your song. Let me know what I may do to make it up to you.
is creating A Cappella Music, Every Day
$5 per Daily Song (improvised a cappella piece)
Pledge $0.35 or more per Daily Song (improvised a cappella piece)
Bonus Track - Loops and CommentaryGet a bonus audio track with every song. Up until now, after I've ended every song I've included commentary and played the individual loops so that potential collaborators can chop them up and use them. Now, only you will get this, as a separate audio track. Hear the parts that make up the songs, and where I'm at in the moments after each one.
Pledge $1 or more per Daily Song (improvised a cappella piece)
A Cappella Juke BoxGet all the above plus access to a Patrons-Only voting/discussion board (platform TBD) where you can discuss ideas for improvisation. Popular ideas, and/or things that get me inspired, will guide my music-making every Friday. Maybe it's a chord progression, a particular tempo, a poem, a topic, a time signature, an image... prompt me, prod me, let's make something together.
Pledge $3 or more per Daily Song (improvised a cappella piece)

Lessons - Video and SkypeGet all the above plus a monthly 45-minute Skype lesson on vocal improvisation and basic singing technique (patrons' choice). Plus a monthly instructional video, "Making Music Now," in which I'll teach you about techniques used to be able to come up with music off the top of your head and keep going, day after day, month in month out. There's no trick to this magic; you can do it too.

Album AdvisorAt the rate I make Daily Songs, this is an extravagant amount of support. You get all of the above, plus pick one of the songs from each month of Daily Songs to be re-recorded professionally and included on an annual album. You'll credited on the album as a Repertoire Specialist (or another title we agree on).
We'll work together to pick a standout song for the month, and discuss ideas for how you'd like to see it recorded. A cappella? Rock band? Brazilian bossa nova instrumentation? New age synthesizers? You get creative input, a free advance copy of each song as soon as it's finished, and of course some free copies of the CD when an album of 12 is finished.
