Hi! My name is Samantha and I play the harp on the Internet.

Playing video game and anime music on the harp brings me so much joy - and I want to share that with you!
I’ve been sharing my love of video game music on my Youtube channel since 2012 and started streaming live on Twitch in 2018, and over the years I have learned a lot and been so fortunate to have found people who are invested in supporting and coming with me on this musical journey!

Why Patreon?

There are so many things I want to do but can’t do alone!
Record cover albums
Compose more often
Upload to Youtube more consistently
Continue to improve my audio and video recording quality
Continue releasing music on Spotify and other streaming platforms
Learn new instruments
Try working with digital instruments
Maybe even electronic music with harp??

All of these things either require time or money (or both), but there’s only so much time in the day, and as a person with chronic pain, only so much my hands and arms can handle. As a professional harpist, I make my living with my music, and sometimes that means I have to prioritize teaching, classical music gigs or weddings, which means I have less time and physical endurance making for online content.
BUT as a Patron, you have the power to make the music I make online what pays the bills! You have the power to make all those things happen, and join me on the journey to get there.

Where does your money go?

Your money will directly support me as an artist, allowing me to both pay my bills and invest in making more and better content.
So far, thanks to my patrons, I've been able to upgrade my audio and video recording equipment, increase my uploads from once a month to twice a month (when life allows), create a full length cover album, and even help pay off a new harp!

What do YOU get?

Well, at the base level, you get to enjoy the free content that I make already, knowing you helped make it happen, PLUS all the exclusive content that’s only posted to Patreon, such as updates, practice clips, and behind the scenes. I upload to Youtube 1-2 times per month, and stream on Twitch at least once a week.
However, depending on how much you want to pledge, you get lots of extras!

Star Patron ($1)

Thank you for your support! As a Star Patron you get:
  • A star with your name in the Star Jar
  • Access to exclusive content on the Patron feed
  • Access to the VIP Discord channel
  • Early access to every Youtube video I post!
  • My undying gratitude

Patron of Credit ($3)

As a Patron of Credit you get:
  • Everything listed above
  • Your name in the credits of each Youtube video

Patron of Song ($5)

As a Patron of Song, you get:
  • Everything listed above
  • WAV downloads of all songs posted on YouTube

Patron of Note ($10)

As a Patron of Credit, you get:
  • Everything listed above
  • "Arrange With Me" Video featuring 10-30 minutes of my arranging process for each YouTube video
  • PDF sheet music downloads for all original songs I post on YouTube

Super Star Patron! ($20)

As a Super Star Patron, you get:
  • Everything listed above
  • I will say thank you and shout out your name as part of the end screen of each video! (If you want to give at this tier but don’t want the shoutout, please send me a message so I know).

In addition to all of that, you help me reach my goals, also located on this page as well! Once we reach a patron goal, you will get to reap the rewards of that group effort.

Goals in a nutshell:

Massive Internet Harp Collab - 100 patrons
Poke-rap Patreon Parody - 150 patrons
Original EP - 200 patrons
On-site video filming every two months - 250 patrons

Thank you!

If you choose to support me, thank you so much! It means a lot to me and has a huge impact on my career.
If you can't or choose not to, thanks so much for watching my videos or hanging out in Twitch chat and supporting my music that way! I value each and every one of my supporters, regardless. Please take care of you first. Just think of Patreon as a tip jar: I'm very grateful to anyone who drops in a few coins, but I'm also very happy to play for anyone who happens to stop by whether they pay me or not, and I hope I've made their day a little better. :)
Goals
62 of 100 patrons
100 - Massive Internet Harp Collab
At 100 patrons I will put together a massive collab between harpists from all over the internet! I've always thought this would be a super cool project, and it would be a fun way to celebrate 100 patrons!
