Ryan Bonner is creating music and literature

Howdy! If you’re here (and it appears you are), then we might be friends already. If not, thanks for stopping in—I hope to meet you soon! If so, thank you for supporting my efforts—I’m glad you’re my friend and grateful for your presence here.

Why I’m Here: I believe God created us to create things. My internal connection with the world is music—you’ve heard the guy always humming across the cubicle wall? That’s me. An ever-present mental soundtrack narrates my day. I love the artistry and power of words; whether favorite song lyrics or well-crafted stories, they move me. In 2017, I committed to write songs regularly after toying with the craft since high school. In 2018, I felt compelled to attempt writing prose, another habit from my youth; yes, I was the strange young man who fancied myself an author at 12. I’m also a father, husband, and Swiss Army nerd. Instead of seeing these pursuits battle each other for my limited time, their powers combine here.

So here’s the deal: The two main branches of this effort are music and the written word. Subscribing means we're in this together--you'll always see my best efforts before anyone else, like a trusted circle of friends. As little as $1 per month lets you watch the madness unfold, but higher levels bring cooler rewards; hear audio versions of story posts, see behind-the-scenes videos from the studio, stage, and road. You can even give direction to the content itself (ever take part in a group choose-your-adventure? That’s happening).

Why subscribe: Subscribe because of the cool stuff in the last paragraph.
Though seriously, if we are designed to create, we’re also meant for community. The market is filled with passive producers and consumers; music and literature are no exceptions. Here I’m calling forth instead a family of friends, and here’s your invitation to join in. Thank you for visiting and for becoming my patron.

Goals
4 of 10 patrons
At 10 patrons, I can pay for my digital presence (website, etc.), meaning it no longer costs me money every month to share my music and stories with the world.

As a thank you for getting to this goal, I'll host a house concert, and make you dinner!
