WELCOME TO PATREON beautiful people of Planet Earth!


Let's get to the juice : I've been making music for many years, and since 2014 I've been kind of a nomad, choosing a simpler lifestyle focused on making and sharing music "on the road" over many of the commodities that most independent artists today can't really afford. These have been some of the best, most fun and formative years of my life but.....but there's one thing, one little downer, that all these years have had in common. I'm talking about the - more or less - constant struggle and pressure to be making enough money to live a decent life as an independent musician AND keep writing, recording and sharing inspired/inspiring music with the world. 

Despite what many people may think being a full-time musician is actually a full-time job. A job that I love and that I could never imagine leaving, but a job nonetheless, and one without any financial security or stability. To borrow the words of fellow musician and Patreon hero Amanda Palmer : "[...] artists need ongoing, reliable support - akin to a salary in the “real world” - if they’re going to make it and be happy, working artists. The internet and micropayments are making that possible". A-freaking-men to that! 

My upcoming debut album "People of the Sun" was recorded and made possible thanks to the support of 61 people who chose to donate to my crowdfunding campaign (read here). When the european airline Easyjet destroyed my guitar during one of my flights, I was able to buy a new, wonderful guitar thanks to the donations of just 47 people who didn't only like my music, but cared about me being able to make more (read here). In both cases I ended up raising more than my goal. Isn't that just the most beautiful thing? It doesn't take a lot of people to start making a big difference.
I have many projects, big and small, that I would love to manifest starting this year : 

  • release and promote my debut album "People of the Sun"; 
  • hire a professional videographer to shoot high quality videos for the new singles and for a couple old songs;
  • record and release my first ever "LOVE" album which will be a collection of some of my favourite love songs written over the past few years;
  • GO ON TOUR! 
  • design and offer Roaman merchandise inspired by my lyrics, like t-shirts and hats and stickers and all the cool little things;
  • last but surely not least, your support would help me cover my basic living expenses so that I may worry less about making money through my music and focus more on just making the music I want to make. 

The bottom line is that I have so much to share, and as sad and materialistic as it sounds *FUNDS* are really the biggest obstacle standing between me and what I'd like to create. The music industry has failed independent artists, and so I turn to you, my community, with a simple question : wouldn't it be great if we could come together to bring more beautiful, honest, uplifting, thought-provoking music into this world? I can't lie, my professional and personal life would be immensely enriched if I knew I had the financial resources to create all the things AND the unparalleled support of a community that cares. 

I trust you'll agree that music is *still* a form of art worth supporting, and I hope you'll value what I do as worthy of your support. I do what I do to make people smile, think, dance, love and feel good about life, to talk about what doesn't work in our society and start the conversation about what we can do to fix it. If people take anything away from my shows and my music I hope that is something along these lines :

be a friend to yourself
be a friend to all you meet
be a friend to our precious Earth

If you resonate with this message and like (maybe love?) the music you've heard so far then wait no more and BECOME A PATRON TODAY

With love, gratitude and excitement for what the future holds, 

Roaman
