UPDATE!
Our new acoustic album, Morse Code, is coming out on October 4, 2019! We’ve been dreaming up this 12-song acoustic album since Rerun City came out a year and a half ago, and I’m ecstatic to finally have a release date for these songs. [PSST. We *may* be selling copies on our European tour under-the-merch-table so to speak, if we can get ‘em out of the oven in time. But man will they be hot to the touch.]⁣⁣

Are we independently releasing Morse Code? Well, if you’ve been following for a while, you know me and the gang. We’ve always been the kind of artists who like to create and share our music directly with our followers rather than relying on label middlemen because it gives us full creative control and special bond between artist and listener. So, yes, we’re keeping this an independent effort, and in preparation for the big release, with all its many recording and manufacturing costs, we have set a new Patreon goal of 500 patrons by July 25. Jumpin’ Jehosaphat—that’s only a week away and over a hundred patrons to go! It’s a scary leap of faith, but I think we can do it.

Here’s the deal: anyone who signs up at the $5 tier or above between now and July 25 will get their name printed in the credits on the album cover, and you’ll receive the digital download of the album before it comes out for the rest of the world. This includes people who are already signed up at the $5 tier or higher, as well as anyone who increases from a lower pledge to $5+. Giving album credits to those who literally make our entire careers possible is the least we can do to show our gratitude, and I will be proud to have those names on the cover of this independently-produced, community-backed work of art.

I have had the privilege of working with some incredible artists on this album and so much love has gone into the recording of these acoustic songs. I can’t wait to share them with you!

Love,
Reina

Hello!

I'm Reina del Cid. I'm a songwriter, a lover of books and coffee, and a fairly tall Minnesotan. I'm also the creator and curator of a video series on YouTube called Sunday Mornings with Reina del Cid

In a nutshell, the series is my way of sharing music with friends and followers in a consistent and meaningful way. If you were here with me in my home, this is exactly how I would share a song with you---over a cup of coffee, at that often euphoric time of 10 a.m. on Sunday with the faint smell of toast in the air and someone reading the paper on the coach nearby. It's the perfect space for music to flourish! 

How does Patreon enter into the equation? I need your help to produce and maintain my video series at a consistently high quality level. Although I have been confused with Lana Del Rey a couple of times, I'm not, in fact, a major label artist. Instead, I operate on a small, independent scale. Your contribution allows me focus on making music to pay the bills rather than creating balloon animals or slinging iPhones at Best Buy. And while we're on that subject, I'm sincerely grateful to you for that. Thank you!

You can become a "Cidizen," or a supporter of this project, for as little as $1 per video and gain access all the Sunday Morning videos not available to the public. With your patronage, I will be able to deliver fantastic content every week, so grab a cup of coffee (or tea, or breakfast whiskey!) and join me each Sunday.

IMPORTANT!
The pledge amount is per video rather than per month, so keep in mind that whatever amount you pledge will be contributed each time we post a Sunday Morning video (about 4 times a month). If you would rather contribute monthly, be sure to cap your pledge when you sign up. For example, if you wanted to pledge $5/month rather than per video, you would simply pick the $5 reward tier and set your monthly cap at $5. Voila! 

FAQs

Will I be donating for all the videos you make? 
No. The extra content videos will live on a separate stream. Your contributions will only go toward Sunday Morning performance videos. 

How many videos will you upload per month?
Most months have four Sundays in them, although there are occasionally five. Don't worry though: when you sign up, you'll have the option of setting a limit to your monthly contribution so you don't end up paying more than you bargained for!

I would prefer to make a one- time donation. How can I do that?
One-time donations are extremely helpful as well. You can do that by going to my website (reinadelcid.com) and clicking the green "Donate" button at the bottom of the page.
