  • access to member only posts means you'll get to see updates on the progress I'm making with my album or any other projects I'm working on! You'll also probably occasionally see Creative Thoughts or song lyrics that popped into my head. It's like a partial access pass into my brain!
  • monthly noodling means that once a month i'll post a quick little recording of something i've done: maybe a guitar riff, some song lyrics, or a (much less polished) cover
  • vote for monthly cover means that you'll be able to vote for what song I record a cover of that month, from a list of four songs on the poll! (You'll also have access to the cover itself once I'm finished with it)
  • pre-release stream means that whenever I release a new song or project, you'll get a special link allowing you access to an online, night-before streaming of the work, which you can enjoy with myself and the other Patrons attending! I'll also be available during the stream for chatting and questions!

All benefits from previous tiers plus:
  • suggest songs for monthly cover means that you'll not only get to vote for what the monthly cover should be, but also have a hand in what four songs go on the poll! With this benefit you can reach out once a month and suggest a song for me to cover, and then I'll do my best to include it in a monthly poll at some point in the future! I reserve the right to reject suggestions sometimes because occasionally there will just be something that I can't play, but if that's the case I'll let you know and work with you to find a song I'm able to add to the suggestions list.
  • all works as they're released means that whenever I release something, you will automatically get a download link at no extra cost!

About Silas Maxwell Switzer

My name is Silas Maxwell Switzer and I'm a queer creative goblin out of Pittsburgh, PA. I've been writing music for almost half of my life — taught myself guitar, some music production, and some other random skills along the way. I set this Patreon up to motivate myself to keep creating regularly, share my content with those who care about it, and give myself a consistent source of income.

As a patron, you'll have the opportunity to vote on which song I record a cover of each month, get access to a livestream every other month, receive fun things from me in the mail, and a bunch of other stuff! (Check out the tiers for more info). Additionally, you'll be supporting a young queer musician who's having a really hard time holding a job during this pandemic and just wants to make music.

Currently, the big project I'm working towards is the release of my album, which has been in the making for several years now. I'll also be releasing one single every quarter for Patreon members. By supporting me at any level, you'll get access to live updates on the progress I'm making, and you'll also bring me closer to achieving my dream of releasing this album finally!

Well, that's the pitch. Check out my SoundCloud to get a little taste of the stuff I do. At the time I'm writing this most of the work on there is pretty old, but I'm working on putting some more recent things up in the near future! If you're interested in joining me on this creative journey, you can do so right here! Just take a look at the tiers, make your selection, and you'll be charged monthly. Thanks for hearing me out, stay safe, and have a rad day!
