Hi, I'm Sam :)

I write songs and sing them to people and this is what I love to do most in this world (apart maybe from being with my family and practicing yoga and being in the water and in the trees). I make albums, I make song demos that get worked and worked until they make it onto aforementioned albums, I tour Australia and sometimes the world singing these songs, I make video clips (I usually direct and edit my own actually, like the one above for 'The Water') so that people can watch something while they listen to these songs, I collaborate with AWESOME musicians and I muse endlessly over the experience of being human. I also love to drink tea.

Working and making a living as a songwriter/singer/musician/performer is a life I 100% choose and so I make choices to support that - like living somewhere I can play a lot of local gigs when I'm not touring, having a pretty tight budget every week so I can dedicate time to creating (rather than working another job to pay for things I don't really need), spending time away from home to tour and write, and putting in the time to work out all the sometimes-incredibly-stimulating-sometimes-painfully-boring-and/or-hair-tearing behind the scenes stuff that's required to keep things ticking along.

I write songs, I record songs, I tour, I make phone calls and I write emails hustling for work. I book shows, I write budgets, I write press releases, I release albums. I raise money, I spend money making music and hiring my friends to make it with me... it's my job, so I do the work. Lucky for me, I love the work.

I'm on Patreon because it's really really nice to get paid for your work!

The bigger picture for why Patreon is making a massive difference is constantly changing.

I want to say a HUGE thankyou to everyone that is currently a Patreon or has ever been one. Having you guys on my team has allowed me to:

have Patreon as a place to share new song demos for my latest album "The Water" (and now I'm sharing new song demos for what will become my NEXT one); it has helped pay expenses to create video clips for my songs; and, most recently, it has helped me fund a trip to the USA to play at a festival, collaborate & write songs and delve deep into Americana, Gospel and Folk music.

Patreon is all at once a place for creative expression, development, promotion and feel good warm fuzzy feelings. It's a place for me to create things to share with you and the world. Sometimes it's scratchy behind the scenes stuff, sometimes it's bad-ass-professional stuff, sometimes it's something inbetween. It's all part of the bigger picture of what it means to be a musician/artist and I'm asking y'all if you want to get a backstage pass to it all and also give me money.... Patreon is a great place for money.

To become a Patron you can pledge, from $1, any amount you choose. You just choose how much you want to pledge, per music thing I release. You can change your amount or opt out at any time and when you become a Patron you get instant access to everything I ever put on here... WHAAAAAAAT!

Whether you become a Patron or not I will continue making music. If you can't afford to be a Patron or it's not your thing, please do not feel like you must pledge or else I will never make anything again... NOT GONNA HAPPEN! But if you can and do get involved, we'll make beautiful music together. Oh yes we will.

Thankyou!

YOU'RE A PATRON, THEREFORE YOU'RE AWESOME
$1 or more per song 32 patrons
If you want to support me on here I want to give you access to everything I put on here. So just write how much you want to/can pledge - anywhere from $1. No one will get more stuff than anyone else, everyone will just get more music.


Basically, being a Patron means that you pay me a little bit each time I create something, and sometimes you also get something extra in return. Here's what being a Patron gives you:


* Automatic Access to every single other, Patron only, Patron supported thing I have shared on here (that's ALOT of songs)

* Access to my Patron Only Feed & conversations

* MP3 download of each song I share on here (except covers)
* Extra Goodies (that will sometimes come sporadically as opposed to with each new  Patreon 'release') like the story/ meaning/ thoughts behind each song I share on here; Behind the scenes pics, videos, stories that I don't share anywhere else 

* Other Goodies I haven't even thought of yet
