About Samantha Preis

Hi. My name is Samantha Preis :)

I'm a nomadic singer-songwriter, storyteller, recording and performing artist. Being an independent artist can be SO hard - but also so rewarding. Some of you may already know my music or have seen me perform, and if you know me, you know that in order to keep releasing music, I have to rely on several streams of income. Ideally, I would love to be focusing ALL my attention into creating new music, but in order to make that happen, I need to be able to rely on consistent income from music projects. So I've created "House of Sam Records", a music label made up of believers and dreamers - ALL part of my musical journey. House of Sam Records is a label and VIP club offering exclusive access to unreleased tracks and monthly rewards with a monthly subscription funding new music projects. (Without you guys, much of what I do would not be possible.)

Why Patreon?

My first album "Good News" was funded through a site called Indiegogo, a great crowdfunding platform for one-time projects. Going forward, I decided I didn't want to exhaust my fanbase again and again each time I started a new project by continuously asking. Patreon is an amazing platform that connects creators to patrons by allowing patrons to subscribe to a creator to help fund ONGOING projects. 

Background:

As an indie artist, the hustle never ends and I am consistently finding myself seeking new and creative ways to deliver new music. It's been 6 years since the release of my first album and lack of funds has made it difficult to release content at the speed at which I'd like. As an indie artist, I don't go through labels or promoters to release new material or promote my work so the pressure is on me to do everything. I want to make my listeners happy while satisfying my own artistic and goals on an ongoing basis. What I need is a SALARY and a BUDGET. I currently have several projects in the works. Here's just a glimpse of the expenses I have to consider on a monthly basis:

-Recording studio fees 
-Video production fees
-Online marketing: social media, ad targeting, website/hosting fees, etc.
-Merchandise (vinyl & cd production, t-shirts, etc and anything else "merch"-related)
-Musician payouts
-Tour support: transportation, lodging, food, room rentals, booking agent fees
-Music artwork such as photography and album art for each release
-Instruments and music software updates

Summary

Basically, without my supporters, I wouldn't be able to do the things I do like recording, music video production, touring, and promoting. I've had so many amazing musical experiences and look forward to new and exciting opportunities in the future that I would love you to be a part of. I've created several tiers with awesome, personalized rewards for each level of support. Anything helps, and EVERYTHING is appreciated! I truly hope to get to know each one of my supporters and hear all your thoughts and visions about my creative process as well as the charitable causes you feel strongly about. I hope you will jump onboard and become a part of this journey :)
